Today we look at the evolution of the Mrrshan from the original Master of Orion up to the present!

 

What do you guys think?

So many of the ships look like some form of sea creature, some for the better, this one for the worse (squid shape for a feline race?)

 

I like the empress though, she looks suitable for a female mrrshan. Would lvoe to see a male mrrshan too!


You and your friends may have preferred certain features from MoO1 or MoO2 .. or perhaps even MoO3 but that does not mean everyone prefers it that way.

Perhaps you could think of some amazing alternative that could enhance the game in new areas, making it more enjoyable for everyone!

Please be creative and open minded when posting, we all want this to be the best game it can be.

*coughing* Elerians. ;)

Moreover, I advise that the tactical combat must be made more player controllable and informative for this to become a proper MOO game.

Elerians are noted in various sources, but it is likely they wont show up with the release. But amybe in some DLC :)

Which is a shame since the Elerians were both sexy and cool. But perhaps the developers thought they would be too dangerous species to include as all the human male leaders might just accidentally surrender to them. :D

Or, it is because WG said that new MoO is remake of original MoO1. And Elerians appeared in MoO2. I suppose they will make an appearance eventually. Gnolams were mentioned too.

No. I am pretty sure that they were just too dangerously sexy to be included in this game. :D

Ooo I didn't see this thread before I started whining about 'no Kzinti' in the other Mrrshan thread. That said, visually it's very good. Just a little more 'furry' than 'fearsome' (which isn't a bad thing depending on what you're going for). Question: What's the thinking behind the ship design in the above photo..? Like, when I see the new ship I think "octopus" instead of "Warclaw".

I love her.

As a DLC, having male/female leaders to complement the current selection would be excellent.

A Bad-a&& looking Mrrshan male based more on a Maine Coon (they can have scary faces) with Christopher Judge voice would be nice.

 

Just ideas off the top of my head.  Would pay for a DLC like that.

What they have not shown you is what it looks like from the *inside* of a Mrrshan ship. Most critically, the Mrrshan view-screens all have a computer filter installed that translates all enemy ships into various-sized Fluffy Balls that make a captivating, jingling sound when they move. This is what makes the Mrrshan so deadly in combat.

 

(It was also made a diplomatic necessity after the early tragic encounters with the Trialrans, which is the REAL reason there are no Trilarans in the game. Trust me... the Mrrshan had even greater diplomatic catastrophes with the fish folk than we Sakkrans, and we were actually -trying-...)

not a fan of their ships. Their aesthetic doesn't scream warlords of space. I miss the Soldier, Scientist, Spymaster. I understand the dev limited resources but it would be a nice variation of each species. You wouldn't have to hear the same SQWAK! from an advisor.

Famous russian sci-fi writer Sergey Lukianenko wrote books with MoO-setting and the funny thing about Mrrshan so they have three genders
