Caitian issue...
 
A request to developers.

Many people here have done approximations of Caitians using the alien template. I myself have two mods having grown up watching the cartoon series when it originally aired... yes I'm that old. Edoans from TAS would also be nice but terribly involved I am sure.

As such, we would like to keep our characters and change them to meet the physical and racial traits determined by the upcoming Caitian template. I would say there is considerable support for this in the membership, furry jokes aside, to do this. Should this be unworkable, then additions to make the cosmetic changes necessary to match the visual appearance to the new templates.

Your response to this would be greatly appreciated and show the folks here that you do see our requests and would at least consider same.

Thanks for your time,
Paul

I here second Pual's comment for the Caitian race to be implemented, or at least have some similar options to the Alien race customization.

I think Cryptic could implement Caitians, because if you look at the Klingon General Sashes, you got parts flapping freely. So Caitian players could easily have tails.

Edosians, I remember one of the Devs saying they love to add mult-legged species, but that's down the road since they have to test the mechanics.

(BTW, there was a player in Beta / Launch that looked like LT Arex, minus the extra leg. :p)

Thanks for the support!

Its minor in the grand scheme of the game but it would mean alot to me. :)

C-Store: "Caitian" Playable Fed Species

As you can see it is already long into development so have no fear, Caitians will soon be here.

Note that these are a C-Store item.

That means they will NOT be giving them away.

Do not expect your character(s) to be turned in to Catians, just because you tried to make them look like them and have picked similar racial traits in the Unknown Alien creator.

In reference to your sig, Kirk would dream about Cryptic releasing a C-store token that lets you go back to the character creator screen for a toon. Would that break so much?

Yes... and Arex too. I remember being amazed by the two of them being young when the series was first run. I would like to have that feeling again when I see my crew.

We all know that not every member of the Federation is a human with make up. The animated series was a breakthrough in giving a more non-human/alien appearance to what we see. I like where the game is going and have hopes for Caitians soon and possibly the Edoans, or is it Triaxians, in the future.

I know, but I would hate to have to dump and lose my two "pseudo-Caitians". :(
