The Human Revolution mod adds five new races to Distant Worlds and edits one. The standard human race is edited to reflect the background story of this mod, and five more interesting races are also added. This was done because I personally found the human race in DW quite plain and boring. It did not provide for good gameplay, in my opinion, and as an AI adversary seldom proposed any resistance either. That is about to change - the Humans have got company.
There are new leader faces and shipsets in Human Revolution enhancing the graphics experience. Here we see the aggressive, warlike Merchs in action with their proper military character (by the artist Kaosmos at Kaosmos.com.ar, used with permission), and the camouflaged shipset by Kalthaniell.
