Adding the (yet unfinished) Undead race from TombStone to Savage as a playable 3rd race.
I was thinking of that (and I'm not the first to think it or tell it, for sure): more races.
I agree that the undead race fits with the beasts and humans, and it would bring more sense to the 3 teams' games.
Another race could be... aliens?
Newerth is invaded by a high technology race not too fitted to live on it (but, poor guys, their home planet is over).
As space travel is not a walkover, they could not bring with them strong weapons, but knwoledge is rather light to transport.
So they would have strong weapons and armors but also big disadvantages in building (something like having to terraform the place first, some later tech or unit could accelerate this) and moving (not being able to be too far from their buildings because of live support system, items mittigate this). This way it would be an even more defensive race than human, with the possibly of making them the more ranged oriented race, or the less (why not? they are aliens, don't try to understand). Do you think this would bring alot of strategy diversity and replayability?
Too many unfinished mods to worry now about a new race anyway, so no hurry to think of the possible three tech lines and all the details.
Changing matter, has anybody thought of real flying units? Airplane/bird like (constantly propulsed), and/or zeppelin-like (can be static). Would be tier 3 or 4. Plenty of more strat diversity and playability (and a lot of programming and testing
). This is the only mention I found (possibly) about a flying system in Savage:
may not use fly due to being broken
Changing matter again, reading the descriptions of the mech it makes me think of the "killa kan" of the Orcs in Dawn of War II.
PS; Dakka dakka dakka HAHAHA
