I like elephants. I like how they swing through trees.

Use a d10 or d12 for the alien die.

I definitely wouldn't do it for the Normal level. I really like the difficulty as it is for that. But I could see using a d10 on my first attempt at Hard or Expert, as sort of an inbetween Normal and Hard level. In any case, that seems like a simple way to make the game a little easier, for those who want that.

I could also see that being an expansion tech kind of thing... Not sure what it would be called or represent, but to the effect that: "Place one satellite here. Use a d12 as the alien die for one task."

Engineering becomes 5th player role. I can see it now.

Can build d10, d12. Can also build d4 that adds to alien die roll.

Neat idea!
I love custom dice, so for an expansion, a custom D8 would be cool - maybe it's like 1,3,5,6,7,7,8,8.
