Default Mod In Progress: Making Monster Races Playable

In progress:

I honestly dont know if this has been done yet, if it has it will save me alot of time. Im in the progress of getting the monster races playable, i have talon there for the most part as a proof of concept. Im totally stoked just to play as a monster character tbh. If anyone is intereted let me know. Again dont know if someone has even done this but I was to impatient to search.

Also i wish i could find a list of all the Race bonuses there are. for example

PowerPerInt
HealthPerVit
HealthRegenPerVit

ive only found about 6 of these, and also i cant find a good list of Stat variables either. Im going to model the Talon after living Bioships, as the models remind me of them. Its just a coincidence though that I love farscape and the race is named talon.

Nice, but there should be NO Talon crew. Talon are ships, they would not sit on the Gunner console of your ship. Nor should Talon ships be able to employ crew, necessarily, although that may be hand-waved by saying that the Dryads designed them that way.

So you probably should replace the crew slot with something else, or at least not leave it a Talon crew slot.

True, at the time i was just going off the crew file which has a entry for them. I guess the problem is i could get rid of their crew slot, but that wouldnt stop pepole from putting crew in low slots anyways. Now what could work and be awesome is if you only got the ONE race crew slot for them and that crew represented the ship as a whole; then make it to where you cant equip and more crew other than that one slot. I dont know if thats doable but it would help fit the fluff.

That being said i wouldnt be opposed to having zero crew if i knew how to prevent it. It makes them unique and can be compensated a lil through ship bonuses and/or talon only items.
