A colony that builds its own base that is an ally , however they are weaker for somewhat to keep balancing
the colony could be outside of humanity, a bit like MASS EFFECT 3 ha ha , i prefer having other teams with me, multi player coop is good, don't get me wrong but to have a
like a advanced organic faction that can do some helping being allies?
it'd be awesome but depends on coding i suppose lol , they could also have quests for you to complete that expands there territory??? just a thought...
