Dev Request: Help us come up with ship names.
« on: November 07, 2013, 12:35:43 PM »
Please help us come up with ship names. In this game, the ships will all have randomized names, and I'd love your help coming up with some. Ideally, they will be one word (maybe two short ones rarely). That are befitting a weapon of the navy. :) We can't have anything that is copyrighted though. As some examples, this is what I have so far:

Triumph
Ascendancy
Surmounting
Vanquishment
Conquest
Victory
Upper Hand
Avenger
Defender
Effective
Grapple
Spearhead
Tempest
Hurricane
Tornado
Typhoon
Monsoon
Deluge
Cloudburst

You guys got anymore?

Are these supposed to be the individual ship names, or the names of the ship models?

It just occurred to me: You should reference your other games with some of the ship names!

Zenith
Childless
Crystal
Shadow
Vengeance
Tsunami
Windless Valley
Alden Ridge
Skyward
Bionic

And some cancelled/suspended titles:
Exodus
Jurassic
Twenty-Eight

:P

AI war modding forum has some, like this one:
http://www.arcengames.com/forums/index.php/topic,13494.0.html




I would also add:
Optimus
Constellation

Emperor
Tesla
Ranger
Titus
Titan
Maximus
Corsair

And I would add:
www.pantheon.org
Thousands of gods to choose from.


I know that mods are a weird thing for you guys, but this would be a perfect place for an alternate naming text file.
