    Are randomly generated creatures a possibility? If not on Aldrin, on other worlds. Also, outside of the Aldrin solar system, will there be randomly generated planets, those planets could have the randomly generated creatures.

    *by random, I mean procedurally generated using an algorithm or set of features put together to make a creature.

    I have to agree with plenty of people on the Reddit post. Aldrin should be hand-made with its creatures, but everywhere else procedural. Even if those procedural creatures were only on procedural planets I would be totally happy.

    Here is an example of procedually generated creatures done right (from No Mans Sky). With some really good looking creatures.

    Hm. Only problem is, lack of variety. From a distance, they look all like multicolored dogs.

    Definitely. Plus the creatures in this game would have to look cube-like just to fit the art style.

    They are one breed of creature and there are many different breeds. These are just a few of the different types of that one breed.
