Looks like Tinkers are going to have to rely on labs exclusively for research... and they're liable to have a reasonably tight budget with their low income. On the other hand, the high labor output they have might be nice, and they'll not need to mess around with farms...

And what if they conquer other races that do possess an outdated metabolism system? :)

Surely they would need to feed those... unless of course those guys are harmonized...

Yes, there will be testing. We should have a working test build within the next week or so.

... I have to say, I knew there had to be something more behind the Star Harpies (the lack of apparent means of reproduction or FTL travel suggested they were reproduced by a Harpy Mother of some sort to me), but I certainly didn't expect what's being suggested by the Arda Seed. This will be interesting indeed.

Edit: I'm also curious if there will be any mechanical advantages to the planet of Dzibix. Screenshots at the moment seem to show it as having the same population cap (even if different art) as a bog-standard arid world, making it the 'worst' homeworld thus far for its native species. I'd suspect that Dzibix should have some mechanical (pun intended) difference from a normal arid.

I do like the setup for future content, too. Wish more people were playing this...

The Tinkers homeworld in the early screenshots is just a reskinned Arid world. The final version will have different stats.

OK, then. That makes more sense to me.

And so to the 10 million dollar question:

When? Is there a date yet?

Doh! I really should stop posting this stuff pre-coffee. I stand corrected, it's sometime in September. Thanks for catching that Arioch!
