    Good day, fellow humans !

    After some work and feedback on the Xyl designs, I would like to gather your opinions on the matter. Best way to do this is a poll. Indeed, we all have our own specific vision of how a cybernetic alien creature should look like. Imagine a strange species, alien of shape and mind, that has been hunting us for centuries. The Xyl are ominous, threatening and obsessive: in what body would fit such a mind ?

    I will keep the poll open until a clear picture emerges -have fun voting !!

    I like 2C. This is one of those things where there's no real 'wrong' answer but in my mind that's what came closest to these terror aliens. Love the coloring. Remember, some of these suckers are supposed to be 20-30 feet tall!

    Yeah, 2C is growing on me (get it off, get it off!). I'd still like to see 9V's abdomen mounted Bulbasaur-style on its back, instead of the underslung one, plus some more bionic limbs - circular saws, drills, acid pipelines etc. for a worker, datafeeds or whatever.

    Funny thing is that the 9V design is the 2c design with a bulbous abdomen on top !

    ...I knew that :p The abdomen on 9V is too far back, though - it'd fall on its arse. Most of the weight's in there, so it'd have to be centred between the feet. Anyway, I voted for it.

    ....and the winner is... design 2c !!! ('clap clap' with tentacles, appendices or claws, whatever you prefer).

    Our dear 2c will be worked upon, with color, head and abdomen variants to fit the sexual/ caste dimorphism of its species.

    Thank you all for watching or even better, voting !
    There will be more designs polls about other items of the game -keep watching us.

    And a great "hello!" to our new readers from reddit !

    Hey friends,

    I will start working on the Xyl exosuits. Yup, they will need clothing (how shocking!) -it makes me giggle to see how often the aliens are depicted coming naked from across the zodiac. Not even a pocket where to put a pen, those poor suckers. Did you really think that those creatures would go around fighting naked ? I am thinking of designing a main battle one, and a utility light version. Hmmmm, then, a mech, perhaps. Any idea welcome.

    More on that soon.

    The utility version could be equipped with alien recon and communications features. Maybe also with some form of EWAR.
    Not an original idea, I concur.

    4 and 8 seems the most logical based on biological function, i.e. it has arms and hands with which to produce technology
