@Tortoise I can dial down my pop if that's what you wish for all of us.


Oh, absolutely not. I'd much rather give one dude (dudette? I dunno) permission to increase their pop than tell like 3 other people to decrease. And there's no reason it can't be billions.

Where are folks getting their symbols and flags from? Can't find a good site to save my life.


I made mine with Heromachine 3. Its a flash (RIP) program but you can get it running pretty easily. The only thing is the export function doesn't work, so you'll have to use something like Snipping Tool when you're done to get a screen grab to throw on imgur. The program was technically for making superhero character portraits, but there's a lot of shapes in the 'Background' and 'Insignia' sections that can make decent flags.

I know Inkscape is also very popular.

Pretty good. At first I figured the Osparians were a native alien, so reading through the history, I really enjoyed that "Ah-ha!" moment of realizing they're only mutated humans.

But before I approve you, I'd recommend upping your population. Most of the Colonies we've got coming in now are hitting about 1 to 4 billion. (Timemaster's is only so small because his NS was completed before anyone else's, and we hadn't realized how big most people's populations were going to be. I've given him permission to increase his as well.)

Unless maybe you're specifically looking to play as a smaller nation?

I have it mostly done now. They're essentially an oligarchy that's focused on preserving "Earth culture," so that they intentionally try to keep humanity as it was before Earth fell. Not just genetically, but culturally and socially as well.

Their end goal is to terraform their world into a copy of Earth, erasing everything alien about it, and they probably won't respond well to all these genetically engineered abominations they're about to run into

Its like if you took a planet, trapped it in a violent time bubble and just left it here to develop for three hundred years!
Sorry if its a lot of boring text, more telling than showing. Went a bit wild with the idea so tell me if I need to pull some things back.



Edit: Slapped another sentence on the technology overview, thats about it.

@ClocktowerEchos OMG. You're still roleplaying! This is going to be AWESOME!

@Tortoise You've got the attention of Clocktower! He's the one that basically taught me (once upon a time), how to nation roleplay! Your oligarchy will find themselves vastly outnumbered. Most of nations we've got are geneticially modified humans/robots.
I'll up the population to 1.6bil Enhanced and 3bil Rejected.

@GreyGoblin What happened with my nation? (saw the post in the CS section) I think our nations will go well together. They might even get some help with their genetical engineering if asked for.

@Irredeemable I'm using this tool : https://rollforfantasy.com/tools/flag-creator.php It can be a bit restrictive in some ways as I haven't figured out how to upload your own icons to it but otherwise, it's alright.

What do you mean "genetically engineered abominations"? The Midnight Technocracy is percentage wise majority human!
You didn't specify their current mortality status.

@Tortoise man, I’m really lucky the Consciousness can really easily slide under the radar of nutters like this. We’re just innocent, direct democracy loving augmented humans! No weirdness at all!

Okay so after a burst of inspiration, a new total war warhammer campaign and continuing trend of a stunning lack of sleep, the Midnight Technocracy is ready for a final review.

Also they are not space goths.

@Tortoise Alright, this is the almost-final form of the Zetan Consciousness, barring some minor rewrites for readability and a flag. How's it looking?

@MetalWeight
Super Approved. You can drop them in the Character tab whenever.

@Irredeemable
Approved, especially the theme song. I wonder if it'd be possible for a hostile power to "hack" the artificial parts of Zetan brains, or if the programming is too arcane.

@GreyGoblin
I see that your population has been updated! With that in mind, you're approved. You can go over to that post you accidentally made in the Char tab and just copy/past your Colony into it. (Reduce, reuse, recycle)

@Timemaster@ClocktowerEchos
And three approvals is the most my poor non-augmented brain can handle doing at once, so I'll check y'all's out after work
