The Orcana 1.4

So long, and thanks for all the fish!

  1. Nemasys
    Also available on Steam Workshop


    A benevolent race of anthropomorphic porpoise-like beings that strive for advancements in knowledge and enlightenment.

    The cultural theme for these guys is advanced Atlantean. Think mostly Greco-Roman with a high-tech vein.

    Orcana technology is derived from biochemical principles and they can harness the potential power from those kinds of reactions. Bioluminescent strips (as illustrated in the ship design below) will be prevalent in their architecture and will serve to illustrate the nature of their technology.

    Love the ship design!

    I am about to test it, but I have to say that what convinced me was the "The Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy" quote. Very interesting mod. Oh, and also, 42.

    Love everything about this mod. :)

    I really love the aesthetics of this mod: the orcanas themselves, their clothes, and their ships are all so visually appealing. I'm *really* looking forward to the implementation of orcana villages, outposts, and dungeons.

      Thanks for the review. The beginnings of the Orcana cities have actually already implemented. Still needs work, but it gives you an idea of what to expect.

    The Human philosopher Nietzsche writes that happiness comes from power. For me, happiness comes from the tender meat of oceanic mackerel.

    Nothing fishy here. The race design is well done, so are the clothes, armor, weapons, and I gotta say, I really like the ship's design, so sleek and elegant. Anxiously waiting for more updates!

    I can't craft any weapons related to the race shown. I see it's currently in progress at the moment, so when do you think it will be implimented? Next update maybe? Thank you, by the way. Love the mod so far!

      Just to clarify, as of update B.4.1 all Orcana weapons (tridents and boltguns) have been re-implemented and are working.
