How would the birds carry cargo and shoot down pirates, unless they had a plane?

but then you have to consider birds, like ostriches, emus, and penguins, that can't fly..... In fact penguins are a prime example of a bird that should be in skyrates, since they would have had to evolve in order to survive, without land to rest and breed on.

without the needs of planes they would probably have more innovative technology, maybe relying more heavily on Unobtainium, making floating cargo boats and advanced weaponry

No squid. Please. Think of the children if there were tentacled creatures around :fear:

Fish is where I draw the line, but seeing squid or octopi might make things interesting. Hee.

(Sorry, I think I really had POTC on the brain when I thought of that...)

Personally, I'd accept any species that has both a reason and the ability to fly a plane. I wouldn't mind seeing some bugs or microscopic creatures. Plants and fungi wouldn't work unless they somehow developed the ability to move around, and undersea creatures might need some sort of breath mask.

Maybe I'm just odd, though.

I totally agree with you. The more variety, the better.

But there are some species I can't seem to see flying a plane (which seem to sound entirely impossible, depening on what you look at).

Tommy, you are a genius.

It would take at least 100 days to get to a distant skyland at such a slow speed from such flying, though. :razz:

I would link an even better one in "We Didn't Start the Flame War" on YouTube, but there's enough words in it that aren't suitable for here. Might I suggest that those interested search for it on Youtube?

However, there are some potential negatives associated with the avatars. It definitely causes some people to be less interested in playing it because they worry the game is a 'furry game' rather than a 'game with some furry characters in it.' We have no real idea how big this number (seeing as those people never played the game), and we're interested in potentially expanding our game's appeal.


I think people who refuse to play the game because of its possible association with furries are people that we may not want to be playing the game with. Someone who is rampantly against the avatars being anthropomorphic animals is someone who probably has a lot of negative things to say in general. Consider - do we want the general radio tab to turn into our version of Barrens chat, with Chuck Norris and gay jokes?

There's probably some more unconscious/subtle worry or something out there, but the only people I've noticed so far that really vocally take note/find fault in the "furry" avatars also quite quickly turn out to be trolls/only on to whine about "furries."
Even assuming there's a significant population out there that really is worried about a flash video game having talking animals, I really have to agree that someone with that preoccupation probably isn't someone I'd want around. To date I haven't heard any normal human being complain about things like Looney Toons or video games having a bunch of "furries."

Humanoid mammals just seem pretty standard for a video game to me. Humanoid lizards and bugs on the other hand seem much more like sci-fi weirdness. Sticking in even normal humans seems like it would be odd to me. Aside from Doctor Robotnik it always seemed weird to see normal people in Sonic games.

I just5 feel it would be to hard to make the shift. It wouldn't make sense, besides my Murphy is cute. :remylove:

We need Octopi, Amoebae, Pond Scum, and Komodo Dragons as pilots!

Fill the skies with Woodmen.

And planes with appropriate 'wood' paint job.

That could have been a nice April fool antic.

I have no preference on Furry vs. Human, but second the motion for not mixing them.

What does put me off a little is the anime-ish-ness of the avatars. I could live with the art style, but I don’t like the costume design. I think an early 20th century Caribbean/colonial style would provide a better ambiance for the game. Khaki shirts, pith helmets, riverboat captain’s hats, Red Baron & Indiana Jones type get-ups, if you get my meaning.

When I jumped into this game (yesterday), it reminded me of “Tailspinâ€
