Neo-Hominids - No Prehensile Feet?
Was I the only individual surprised that the Neo-Hominid morph didn't possess Prehensile Feet? Colin

It seems that the Neo-Hominid is based of the Gorilla, which really does not have prehensile feet, as opposed the Chimpanzee and Oranguatang, which do.

I'm not sure how the Uplifts material we have coming out is going to explain this, but I believe the reason is that neo-hominids were developed on Earth. If you want to walk upright in Terran Gs, human-style feet are better than your stock monkey feet. Neo-homs are pretty much Planet of the Apes types, and PCs should be allowed to go with an orangutan or chimp (or better yet, bonobo!) gene line if they like. (Note the penalty to running for characters with the Prehensile Feet aug).

I could see it as an attempt by their creators as a deliberat omission to help better "humanize" them... or indirectly having uplift-rights individuals as such and using it as a talking point (they have a RIGHT to prehensile feet!!!)

According to the errata that will be soon incorporated into the PDF and sent for another print run, Neo-Hominids do have Prehensile Feet.
