Alien size?

Just wanted 2 know if the aliens can grow if they choose so, or that if they evolve they will just have a fixed set of options, and not for example can pick something like i want a new head, like in the game evolution for the old SNES.

    Hi Infest0r, welcome in the forums.

    Ahh, the good ol' SNES... /me dreams away

    Anyway, there won't be such a thing as partitial evolution, at least not in the first release.
    The alien player will have the choice between five different classes, beginning with your standard bob-hatchling, which'll have the size of a crouched marine, over the builder, the flier, the big guy which is my avatar to the behemoth which'll come in at the size of a small rhino.

    You may choose some upgrades for each class, but there won't ever be a behemoth-sized bob or something.

    My guess is that so far yes.  They make be cloned in the good old Barney vats of Black Mesa.  Neo-Barney is on the loose.

    Yeah, sorry guys, but the Marines will all look the same... at least for the first release (unless one of our artists/modelers gets -really- bored and comes up with a few other skins/models.). Later releases will -almost- (note, almost) definately have different looking marines, but the look will be the only thing different. They won't actually be/play different. (There's also a possiblity for different skins or slightly different models for the aliens too...)

    hell  this mod doesnt have to be finished with his/her first release. I think this mod is going to be the best ever and i don't care how marines look like, they're humans.....
    The aliens should look "nice" though.

    If you see to see all the alien concepts, head over to <a href="" target="_blank"></a> and head on down to Jan 18th and everything from there down is what the aliens are basically going to look like
