Species

From FreeOrionWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This page indexes the species ideas which have been developed for FreeOrion. Not all species on the list will be ultimately added to the game. It's likely not all species in the game are on this list.

  • Please see the instructions and guidelines here for creating new species ideas for FreeOrion.
  • If you notice a species in the Story forum or in the game, that isn't on this list, please, add it.
  • "Empahsis" is for a single word listing of the species most prominent strength. If we had Psylons, you would put down "Research".
  • "Eleazar's Rating" is a simplified form of his personal evaluation found in this thread. It is neither official, nor final, but is offered for what it's worth as a tool to help sort through species descriptions. It goes from "5" = "Highly Developed" to "1" = "Weakly Developed".
  • If other users are inclined to create evaluation threads of their own, they may add a column for their own ratings, if desired.
