@Ophiuchus, @The Silent One, thank you! ^^

I don't know, what to do... I have a problem.

I create a Mu Ursh sketch, using just short game description, and got this: Cute cat-like peaceful guys who control agressive creations and learning to piloting.

After that I FINALLY READ original and... [cencored]
Eugenics, genocide to clear "crime genes", absolute totalitarianism, hooves and tentacles... Hooves and tentacles... :shock: Crazy cows.

Love Muursh, and already was attached to their old appearence, used to seeing them like that... I understand that sometimes you are changing original story to make the race more playable, but still you prefer to save original as well as you can. I don't want to change sketch above... My Muursh sketch fully suits to the current game description, but it has so minor matches with original story. I can add hooves and tentacles to them, but seriously don't want to create something like this: :cry:

I think at some point the graphics of Raaagh and Mu Ursh were switched, are you proposing to revert that decision, and/or to change their descriptions?

FYI: You did manage to make them look cool either either way.

Nope, I don't want to change description, it's Ok. I just trying to decide, which kind of description I will need to follow - original story of Mu Ursh (with genocide and etc.) or current game story, that tells that:
Mu Ursh
Militantly peaceful herbivores.
Mu Ursh are a peaceful, non-aggressive race of vaguely feline appearance, they became the dominant lifeform on their planet in part due to their excellent reactions and eyesight. They used their abilities to round up and control all threatening predatory life, limiting numbers in order to ensure a peaceful planet.

To their regret, their natural abilities seem to make them exceptionally gifted pilots, and some amongst their number have decided the best way to ensure galactic peace is to conquer and control all aggressive intelligent species, making the galaxy as peaceful as their homeworld.
(I selected keywords that was used to draw).

Ah, I see. I don't know why the Mu'Ursh description was changed, but I guess the image should match the current story. So if nobody objects, I think you can stick with the cute cats :)

Maybe a compromise, keep the cat-like appearance, but give them the facial tentacles instead of the pincer/saber-teeth. They'd still be pretty cute IMO.

If you're looking for some inspiration, I've just uploaded some old species (and other) concept art by former contributor Josh into the art repository:

Wow, they are very good! I love that type of arts, they are so detaled and looks more awesome for a game like FreeOrion ^^''' Really.
I worked for George art some time earlier, I'll took some ideas (like fluffy body parts).

I just finished Hhhoh. :)
