The Orcana

A benevolent race of anthropomorphic porpoise-like beings. Theirs is a culture that has risen from conflict to embrace enlightenment through knowledge and philosophy.

The cultural theme for these guys is advanced Atlantean. Think mostly Greco-Roman with a high-tech vein.

Orcana technology is derived from biochemical principles and they can harness the potential power from those kinds of reactions. Bioluminescent strips (as illustrated in the ship design) will be prevalent in their architecture and will serve to illustrate the nature of their technology.

Cities currently have buildings and NPCs, but I eventually want to flesh them out more with more buildings and furnishings and such. The Villages/Outposts are another idea I had for Orcana settlements. Smaller, less formal places. Maybe just a handful of structures at each one.

Hiya. Queston. I noticed it said's "Orcana Cities (wip)" in current features, but then coming soon "Villages/Outposts". So dose that mean the cities spawn but are empty with no NPC's in them? sorry if it's a dumb question i'm just a little confused ^^.

Oh, dang! That was definitely an oversight on my part. Bubbulbs have the same problem. I'll certainly get that taken care of. Thanks for the heads-up.

Can You Make The Krillberry Stackable?

Does anyone know how to claim an underwater Orcana city? I've killed all the NPCs but I can't seem to use a colony deed in any of the houses.

@The Shameless One - I'm afraid that I am unable to duplicate the issue. Could you copy your log file into the debug discussion for me so I can take a look and get a better idea of what is going on? Thamks!

Possibly not the tray- but the crash even occurs when normal vanilla farming too (Tilled soil+watering it with the watering can) I made sure to test each method to see if it was repoducable- Growing Bubulbs in any way crashes once they hit maturity every time.
Nemasys  [author] Feb 20 @ 6:20pm 
Wait... I know it's been a while since I've really been active in the game, but does vanilla Starbound even have "growing trays?"
Nemasys  [author] Feb 20 @ 10:37am 
Oh no! Admittedly, I never tested with the growing trays. I'll have to take a look at that and see what's going on. Thanks for the heads-up.

Also, the Technical Support and Bug reports discussion is preferred for this sort of thing.

Found a REALLY bad bug for this- If you try to grow any orcana farmables/crops in the hydrotrays/growing trays from frackin' universe, or even the base games growing tray- it all but corrupts and makes that entire world and planet unplayable till removed.. Just straight out full on access errors. Tested with bubulb and repeatable.

The only way to fix it was to remove the mod so it nulled out it's associated seeds and plants.
