Outdated Mantis Race 0.6.7 [Spirited Giraffe]

A race of paleontologist insects bent on unravelling the secrets of the universe.

    The Mantis are a proud insectoid race of paleontologists and explorers bent on unravelling the secrets of the universe. For generations they have documented their planet's history, dug up every speck of dirt, and scoured the land for fossils and lost relics. Their homeworld of Proximus lies in ruin, desecrated by the mantis' insatiable desire for knowledge. It has become tradition for mantis to venture into space when they come of age and explore to their heart's content. Their habits have caused them to develop a mad lust for amber—a decorative gemstone made from hardened resin known for its ability to preserve and fossilize exotic lifeforms. Ships clad in amber and eyes to the stars, the mantis embark on lifelong voyages in search of the unknown.

    I've seen many videos and reviews of this mod, and I'd love to play with it, myself. If you could update this mod to fit the 1.0 update, that'd be great. I don't know if you abandoned it or not, but I'm sure the mod would do great if it was updated. :D

    Probably my favorite race. Its a unique and super fun take on insectoids! Plus they are mantids. What isn't to love about those beautiful sentinels of our earthly gardens?

    This mod has its own weapons and armor right?

      As of RIGHT NOW, it has a decent amount of weapons (which need better names) and no armor. However, I've just partnered up with someone who is going to help me work on armor in the near future.
