Living in the sun

Postby Asmodan » Sat Oct 06, 2012 2:57 pm

What about a race that lives in the sun of a system? That would be cool! As suns are normally quite huge this would also not be a limitation to population size. Their ships could have different colors matching the one of the sun they were built in. ;)
They could also be the new Antarans. Entering from time to time one of your systems and start using the energy of your sun and you must stop them otherwise the sun will become a supernova.

Yes, really great idea!
One race living on the planets not always knowing about the one living inside the sun...

Even if your idea is not developed, it might make a really cool random event. Like you discover there is a race living in your sun, they help share there knowledge with you and supply you with x amount of research per turn as long as you control this system. Or you could say you discovered a race living in your sun you must discover a way to move or destroy them before they make your sun nova. (destroying them = less research no bonus, moving them = more research but research or tec reward)

Things like this made me excited about the 4X space strategy games in the first place. Anyone who used to play StarControl 2 or 3 probably agrees as to the feeling of suspense and excitement when moving the ass out of own solar system and anticipating meeting the unknown while discovering each new star system...

Definitely a NPC race though, like the barbarians in Civilization.

Barbarians are great! ;)
Also:
-independant Planet-States (if allied with them, can provide stuff like in Civ V)
-Mercenaries bases (can hire them do do dirty work)

For some reason this topic reminds me of an old story..
"They're made out of meat."
"Meat?"
"Meat."

I think this is a really interesting idea. I believe sundiver, one of the books in the uplift series by David Brin had intelligent beings living in our sun.
