Military themed planet names
« on: December 22, 2009, 12:47:18 PM »
Recently I put together another alternate planet name list that I thought might be interesting to others. While most of the lists posted to date focus on real or fictional planet names, this list takes a more military direction. I collected together real military code names for assorted operations and terms so that the planets are designated as though each one is a military operation. As the backstory describes this as a war against the AI, I think this adds interesting flavor to campaigns, while at the same time keeping the planet names easy to read and pronounce.

The list is just under 3,500 entries so there's a decent amount of variety in it. For those interested, this is the site where I obtained the starting text (although subsequently heavily edited): http://www.designation-systems.net/usmilav/codenames.html

Great! I'm using this now. :)

The thing this game is lacking (for me) is more back story and more realistic elements... I like "pretending" that a war against all-powerful AI is actually occurring.

Edit: Ignore the below, I'm silly. However, it doesn't show the new names in galaxy creation, which is quite perculiar, so I'm leaving this post to inform others.

This file no longer seems to work with version 2.201 - should I be putting it somewhere different, or should I make a post in the bug forum?

That's standard, it only does the naming when you actually get into the game.

If we weren't going for your money, you wouldn't have gotten as much value for it!

Oh, wait... *causation loop detonates*
