This update took a little longer than I wanted it to, but here it is! This update boasts finally pushing the race generator to well beyond 300k random races that are possible to be spawned in Warsim! 325'142 total. This update also contains lots of changes to the sounds systems within the game.
This is what pushed the races over the edge, now every single animal type can also be a custom race, itself with 'lings' at the end, you can find Doglings and Catlings, Beetlelings and Giraffelings.
- Added 192 new animal race types (Doglings, Piglings, Maggotlings, Crowlings... etc)
RACE SKIN COLOUR UPDATE
This update sees race skin colour more affected by certain race suffixes, so Bone Orcs will now have white skin instead of green, Arctic Gnomes will be blue, Magma Goblins red and so on, this adds a bit more of a difference between races giving more of a change of an immersive world with strange creatures who occupy it.
