There is nothing wrong with having blue aliens in the game, or any other color. That im asking for is consistency, while those blue ppl can be another kewl gal civ. Bottom line, i never ever had played none humans in Gal Civ 1 or 2. So for me its purely aesthetic, and lore related interest. To that end, outside of main campaign (and also Drengin, in the Dark Avatar expansion), i never liked vanilla Terrans, and always used a custom made human civilization (Argon Galactic Republic, as i named them). To that end, if Gal Civ 3, includes animated custom human avatar (and possibly a custom home world that we can assign to a custom race, rather then using generic ones), for my AGR faction, it would be dream came true for this game.
However, just cause i don't actually play none human, or even none AGR faction, i can still appreciate consistent lore, as well as diversity. I want Altarians to retain their human color, and those awesome tattoos, without a redesign of the species, to a new "brand".
< PS: Argon Federation ( i twisted the name to Argon Galactic Republic) is not a name i came up with, and is a name for a civilization in X2-X3 Egosoft series, while Galactic Republic portion, is a tribute to Star Wars lore... >
