For the life of me I can't remember this, I do recall somewhere that it is 14 but does this include the planet/norace and ferengi scavenger races as well?

I was under the impression that the Ferengi were separate, but I am not sure.

I dont see why the ferengi couldn't use any race odf? I assume the no race must stand.

The no race is for planets and since I still am using colonization it must stay. I just need to know if the 14 limit includes the norace and ferengi or not. ;) Hopefully someone around here will know.

Well, its been a long time since I've seen this being asked. I seem to remember 16, but I'm guessing that was total, so 14 could be right.

If there is a limit, it's a lot higher than that. I saw a mod (which was so big it never got finished), with 26 races in it (plus scavenger, plus norace). So that's 28.

My current install has 12 races, plus scavenger, plus norace, plus the original 6, so that's 20.

Thanks Atlantis, that answers my question, certainly enough for what I am looking at. ;)

14 rings a bell... I can't remember the actual value

Regardless what it might be, why (other than a bigger choice) would anyone, be it the YY team, another project, or a single individual need anymore than eight sides to choose from? Afterall, you can only play with eight players at a time... At least, to my knowledge. If there is a way to play more than eight, then it needs to be shared, and used on AoW =p

It's called having more choices Tycoon. I don't understand your constant need of only having 8 all the time. So what if only 8 can be used at one time, they don't all have to be on the map at once. Sorry if I sound a little strong headed there but you do go on about 8 races quite a bit and I really just wanted to put my view across. As for the number of races I am just curious. I have seen mods with usually only 6, YY still only has 8 races and we don't plan to go beyond that. Its not because of the map limit we have 8, it's because we don't think anymore are necessary for our story we are covering in YY.
