I don't get it. Codification? Why use it if nothing comprehensible comes from it?
But I guess I'm just a primitive human... ;cute

I've saw it in this way: the encoding try to translate alien sounds with alphanumeric character, how you write alien sounds in terran language?

why, it's not true we are primitives?? more primitives than the ancients

It might be worth experimenting to see if the game will display any special characters...

Then again, the RIGHT gibberish and garbage displaying might be able to PASS as Alienese, even if NO special characters will display...

Maybe.  -I think you mostly get ascii junk that isn't characters at all with some special characters.

I'm not sure I understand, but .pngs are much better.  .bmps are HUGE memory hogs.

i've realized definetly 6 of 7 graphics for my facs, i'm going to name it WAR FACS SET (it can be also [prostitute] [fuddle-duddle] SEX if you like/want), for the warlike culture with which they are made.
i focus this discussion on the inspiration i felt and i report below some notes can help to understand better my txts ideas and give a graphic outlook, often pictures express more than words, expecially in my case.

I've found your new album pictures interesting.


.jpgs are better still for small size/memory, if the image doesn't have to be all that crisp, or .gifs better than that if it does need the detail but isn't full color like a photograph.  Since most of this will be SMACX images, .gif format is probably best.

The wiki interface isn't that bad, although I agree that it's difficult to learn at first.

FREE COMPANIES



it's inspired to the modern feudal kingdom of warlords in african states.

i choose as leader Laurent Nkunda, who we can see in those pictures, in poses between rap artist and bananas field owner ... and gorillaz back
not properly a good person








|Efficiency=-1

for their attitude to raids, i should add marine detachment ability.

i remember marine detachment was display also for land units in game, ... why??

BAYCO



is inspired to the old navy corporation of sailor : bay companies as Hudson Bay Co., East Indies Co., ...
sea is place of huge traffic and commerce is powered by portual activities.
ports are worst of the seas.
the leader is a rogue trader, a corsair.

(maybe logo like you uncle, but your beard is surely best kept, expecially when you're Fredrick the red)

Observe the Razorbeak as it tends so carefully to the fungal blooms.. just the right bit from the yellow, then a swatch from the pink. Follow the Glow Mites as they gather and organize the fallen spores. What higher order guides their work? Mark my words: someone or something is managing the ecology of this planet.
