Also such customization is not always good (Gal Civ II) and letting the devs handle the races is usually a better idea like Kerberos did with Sword of the Stars. They had 4 (5 with the expansion) races that had very unique looks,backstory,phylosophy and gameplay. I'd prefer that than user created races.
I liked being gray with like the Mirkwood Archers in BFME because they blended in with the trees really well.
