Re: Let's talk about Star Control 3.....

Making it race-specific could have allowed them to balance better. But they still should have made them unique rather than applying to all. And of course they didn't balance them better. Like, the Doog should have had a firing range increase or a maximum speed increase or something.

Re: Ideas for playthrough?

I wonder what would make a good added-difficulty mod - not just voluntary restrictions - without moving things around on the map, which is complicated. Slightly-slower hyperspace travel?
