Please note, this is not to restrict the game further. We hope you understand this – it is merely a list of things we would not allow before...it's here to save your time if you happen to apply for something in these lists. We hope that this will cause less outrage when something is denied. Therefore, this is the long-awaited unofficial-now-official list of stuff for which the community's asked).

In response to recent confusion (and yes, even anger) about crossovers or “godmod” technology/powers/characters in general, CMAC has compiled a list of things that are absolutely never going to be accepted. Anything not on this list also could be denied, but the below are things that you shouldn't even bother researching or applying for, because they will be rejected.

Tip on getting things not on this list that seem risky approved: put thought into your designs/applications. Provide ample backstory and technical explanation. If you use something as inspiration, do not directly rip it. Direct rips from another source should not be applied for; we're surprisingly omnipotent. :p

There's also another list of things provided, for your convenience, consisting of items that will require lobbying on behalf of the player for their inclusion in the game. They are not outrightly denied. This list is also not comprehensive.

If you think something shouldn't or should be on this list, please contact CMAC. (Ctrl + F will help you navigate this list, obviously)

Do I need to worry about these things if I already have them? I don't have to worry about loosing Nora (a Shi'ido), for example, do I?

No, Nora's safe. If it was already approved, we're not gonna go back and take it away. :wink:

Does this mean all superships are now disallowed, including already existing ones?

Glad Alex Torr was made before the no non-fs Korun rule...

Also, weren't the Miruluka all killed off anyways?

Those that were on Katar, yes. However, it's assumed that some would have survived, namely those that weren't on the planet (and Visas Marr, in her rare case). Jerec would have to have had parents, so there were obviously Miraluka who survived the destruction of Katar 4000 years prior. They aren't common, but they are in the galaxy.

No, that's in the restricted category. It's just reinforcing that if you want a supership, you have to explain it very, very, very, very, very well. In all honestly, no more will probably be approved, but we're not going to outrightly deny them. (mostly because the definition of "supership" is relative)

Yes you should, unless the Akula has been that unreliable to have 29 previous models. :P

...hmm, that reminds me, I do have another starfighter and a starbomber on the drawing board...

Damnit why are apocalypses banned, that technically means BDZing should be banned too. :P Unless ive grabbed the wrong end of the stick on that one...

Also, what made you ban everything from STEF? Did someone try to form a Hazard Team. :P

You can't trust a machine to do a soldier's job...not that I have any bias against machines, that's pure speculation. :P

YES, DENY THEM COMPLETELY. This game doesn't need them and if someone requested their presence I would keelhaul that person.

Add Galactus to the Denied list as well just in case. :P
