    I'll drop one more detail about the Tsihu. They do not use tanks, they do not use planes to wage war.

    The use tech augmented Kaiju. They are beastmasters...

    The Tshihu are enigmatic. The story is one of first-contact. We know they are shapeshifter, very aggressive, and probably from a phased time. I can't give too much away, but what hints would you like to help come up with the human nickname for them?

    I think a resting/setup phase is what made early thumping so social. So yes, its coming back. Later thumping removed it. Was a mistake.

    We know they call themselves the Tsihu. The reaper teams that endure their constant attacks have a more colorful name for them. That name is....up to you!

    Greetings fellow Reapers,
    I welcome you to our first community contest. This is round one.

    Last week we got our first glimpse at our alien enemy, the Tsihu. Now is your opportunity to provide your idea for that colorful name the humans will call them.

    Need an example?
    In the science fiction classic novel Ender's Game there is an alien race named the Formic. However the humans who fight them refer to the aliens as "Buggers" because they are largely insect like in behavior and appearance. So how will the humans refer to the Tsihu here in Ember?

    How to Enter?
    • Give us your idea for what the humans call the Tsihu.
    • Only three name submissions per person total. Make sure you choose your favorite ideas to submit.
    • At the end of round one we will be putting your submissions into a new thread for round 2. There the community will vote to select the top ten names. Lastly Grummz will select the final name from that top ten.
    • Round one of this contest begins on Tuesday August 23 and will close Wednesday September 7th.
    The ember team is excited to see your submissions. Let's get creative!

    Oh did I forget to mention that round two is where we start talking about Prizes for making it that far? Keep your head on a swivel Reapers, there is much more to come.

    Congrats to @Ronyn on his promotion to Ember Community Manager!

    As CM, Ronyn will be writing blog post updates related to community, and running community engagement events here on the site and forums. He'll also have more moderator permissions, so he can help our mods handle things like badges and name changes.

    Thank you, Ronyn, for volunteering to put so much more time into Ember. I am very grateful!

    This will help free me up to focus on the next milestone fundraiser on IndieGoGo. We'll be funding the modeling and texturing of a running, in-game model of the T.H.M.P.R. in Unreal 4, as well a design vision hardcover and PDF illustrated book that will help outline the design and vision of the game to new people.

    The ore get stored in a floating magnetic basket that is made up of the re-entry shell that it lands in. Hovers along behind it. Resources are not stored in THMPR.

    I still want the other hand to look "construction vehicle" in nature. I don't want the THMPR to be confused for a combat vehicle. It is not. We have other stuff for that.

    I like this. Can we have it? While the TOS covers all idea submissions on the forums, I'd still like something publicly seen that says we can have the design for free and have an unlimited license to it. Tks!

    Now we just need a new claw/scoop arm.

    So yes, I like the idea that skill can unlock the higher potential of a weapon or ability.
