The literal translation into Cantonese for Karen Ng'Mei is Karen Not Beautiful.  :D
Long time ago, you see, there was this thing called the VBB and... oh, nevermind.

Re: Know your Sol: History of Martian Terraforming and Colonization
I get a heavy Kim Stanley Robinson vibe, particularly the Red Mars series, from the terraforming descriptions, as well as the in game descriptions from Noemi's visit to planet. Did inspiration come from there, or just coincidence?

No, this is the right thread for it. I don't know if Red Mars was a direct inspiration on Herra; I haven't read it myself but I've heard it's very good.

Original post has been restored to include images nuked by the great ImageShack purge (may the fleas of a thousand Shivans infest their servers).

Funnily enough, although one of the original images has apparently been lost to where-ever used bits go, it appears that the image has been re-circulated throughout a lot of Spanish and some French articles in the interwebs.

Apparently some people have considered that picture believable enough to be an "artist's impression" of partially terraformed Mars, or something.
There are three things that last forever: Abort, Retry, Fail - and the greatest of these is Fail.

To be honest I kindof assumed that was where they got it
