Very good question.
On the information screen of the Racebuilder page you will find at the bottom links to the PHost documentation which describe all these features and any others. These are all ship functions.

Here is the direct links as well
quietus - ore condenser
(It makes the mineral densities better on a planet)
skyfire - repairs
(It repair other ships)
automa - full weaponry
(Ships has full weapons even with damage - same as the normal Fed ability)

Did one come through from me? I have not done this before so I was just checking to see if I did it correctly.

When you submit your selection a new page with all your options are displayed show you that your submit was successful.

And yes Akshamu, I did receive one from you.

I will send an e-mail to all the players that I received submissions from to confirm.
If you do not get an e-mail, then I did not get your submission.

I like Race builder for making your own, but its really hard to do a Crystal themed based build. Web mines, and fuel draining, and tow capture are the keys to the Tholians, and removing those attributes, no matter how you replace them, just make the Tholians any other Torp/custom race.

Race builder keeps in the core Gorn advantage of taking extra damage, CofM's Fighter sweeping, Fed Scotty bonus, improves the Birds Cloaking, Borg assimluation and other stats, removing Pillage and removing Webs from the Klingon's and Tholians changes what the races are all about, and what's the use of being a Pirate without robbing and tow capture?


If possible it would be nice to build your own Fed or Klingon, or Tholian or... race. Keeping there "Core" mission, and adding on to them. Because removing Pillage from the Klingons neuters them. Web's removed from the Tholians, makes them no different, Super Spy needs to be a Bird feature, not selected feature for that race, and kind of ruins the feel of playing them, as your not playing with a Klingon or Tholian mindset.
Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference.
The US Marines don't have that problem.
