the race is called the trut empire and is a race of evolved ladybirds or ladybugs depending on where you live. (2 words for the same animal.) my idea is to use the human build system but add a unique way of increasing the tech level by first choosing one sub race and then another. most of the buildings will look human with the exception of the altar which looks like a giant member of the race. the trut empire have 4 heroes and 2 sub races.

Why not just make them human?

Ladybugs/ladybirds already dounds unique, why not view thrm for what they are flavorwise.

Reskinning isnt creating a new race
A race is like a song. It has its own rhythim and melody.
How the player uses them makes them the condictor

I suggest hearing the music that the ladybugs/birds give off and creating the race from that
Otherwise its just a reskin

Lady bugs arent builders

They feed off little bugs that eat trees
If they were to have a monarchy, what would the upper eschelon do besides have more exquisite markings?

Have you researched ladybugs before?
Insects tend to be amazing creatures
