Keeping fingers crossed for Togruta as next species. And that Cathar sells well so that we will get a new species in the first place.

you know, i got to thinking about cathar. and i'd really like to see the sub species ( juhani is a member of the sub species) added with the main species. there are differences to the main and sub species that are noticeable, so that wouldn't be a problem

:edit: also, i've been wondering why almost none of the cathar currently in game speak with the heavy russian accent that cathar are supposed to have?

So any races we add in the future will need to plausibly be able to speak basic.
THANK YOU !! I've been saying this forever but people don't really understand I guess.

It gets annoying sometimes seeing all the wookie and jawa players race threads.

I understand their concern, but you could do something like those horrible young Jedi novels did when they first introduced Lowbacca - Put some type of translator droid on his belt / bandolier / whatever. Heck you could even make it sound more organic so you're not listening to droid all day.

I understand it and I can see how the point appears compelling. I don't agree however.

Whilst it is reasonable to assert that long alien dialogue would be annoying it is not to say there isn't a way in which it can be made tolerable thus enabling players to enjoy the elements of playing a non basic speaking race that they are after.

Alien non basic dialogue doesn't need to spend as long saying the same thing. Something that takes 30 seconds to say in English might only take 10 seconds in Wookiee.

Don't forget, when its non basic alien noises you are going to be reading the subtitles anyway after which you can Spacebar.

i would like Kel Dor my self and i also think there shouldn't be any restrictions on the new races, both factions should be able to use them. Falleen would be cool too but there is no way we could actually have them and they work the way they should B^( how do you implement pheromones into a game?? B^P
Kel Dor speak Basic and Falleen's could be in the game, what just because they might not incorporate the pheromones doesn't mean that they can't be added.

we already know that cathar is the next playable species ... and we already know its going to be neutral .... they wouldnt add a new race at this point and not have either One for EACH faction or only one that is neutral ... its entirely unbelievealbe that anyone would think that there would be republic only species.

We have a store now ... all species added will be locked until purchased for 1.5 million creids or through the store for 600-900 cartel coins.

Bummer

I feel this way anyway when I have to play with the same vo for the male Jedi knight again. When it comes to Alts I would take gibberish over the original voice because that voice is mentally associated with the character I already played with. I have rolled alt females just to avoid the redundency so I would take generic sullustan sounds over the female vo since I am on an rp sever

well, keeping with the "no combat value" thing with racial abilities, they could either go with the falleen's ability to change skin tone or the pheromones. the skin change is obvious. the pheromones could work by making another player do a /flirt when you use it on them lol. i personally would find that hilarious ;P

though... judging by the way this community acts sometimes with certain things, i could see a lot of butthurt from the many people who seem to be quite insecure with their sexuality >.>

No lol...they ARE listening to guys like me who would HATE to listen to alien speak all day. Speak for yourself, not the playerbase.
