View Full Version : [Cosmetics] Greeting messages when discovering races

Races have exactly one message to use when you discover them. In Drox, that was fine, because your relations started at 50, so a moderately hopeful message is appropriate. But with persistent galaxies, the messages make less sense. I've been extinguishing Talon whenever I meet them, and we start on horrible terms, but they still joyfully greet me five seconds before declaring war.

So it would be nice to have three messages, for starting relations between below 50, between 50 and 60, and above 60.

I also think that the relationship bonuses/penalties could be a bit heavier. I have my favorite races, and I always stick with them if possible. But even the ones I always fight give me a pretty reasonable chance to patch things up when I start a new sector. I think that when you have consistently opposed someone you should start at the very most at 40, where one false step will mean war.

"It's crunchy to meet you... a**hole."
