Base name collection/creation project

  • On big maps basenames often run out, the defaults kinda suck, people have made basenames to fix this. Let's collect them up. We'll be working on a sync.in pad initially, so everyone can chip in.

    http://sync.in/Basenames

    Guidelines for editing:
    For now, try to pretty much just add. We will trim down some later, but it makes sense to do it in stages.
    Adding your own ideas is fine.
    Try to avoid having extremely similar/duplicate basenames.
    Leave the original basenames intact.
    Keep it to only vaguely serious names.
    Prioritize factions with few bases.
    Don't worry about formatting.
    Leave a (?) after basenames you think are questionable/should possibly be removed.
    Discuss anything you're not sure about here (major) or in the inline chat on the pad (minor).
    Once you have thoroughly checked and added all wanted names from a source, move it to the checked/included sources section.
    When creating or deciding whether to add a base name, remember that it should ideally be a fitting name for a city, not just a term associated with the faction.

    PK - http://www.codehappy.net/apolyton/threads/74554-1.htm

    Aim is to collect a large enough number of basenames that even on a large map with lots of expanding a faction is unlikely to hit defaults, and expand defaults so that it's basically impossible to run out of them. The collection of text files with basenames for SMAC/SMAX can then be added to downloads.

    To help, go add basenames. Or find sources I've missed and add them.

  • I've used a box of Crayola crayons as a source of base names when I was really stuck for ideas. Other times I'll think of an applicable word and use my dictionary program's thesaurus for a list of good words.

    I saw the alien phalanx coming toward us, and I calmed my mind as Kri'lan had taught me. And what I saw next to the phalanx was a shadow regiment, half-formed from the resonance around them. I cursed the aliens... with power like that, each one could fight as many, and I thanked Planet for sending us the betrayer.
