What do you think of this as the fac leader quote:

"An army is not only divided into infantry and navy, but also into the cannon fodder and those for whom war is a way of life. Planet's free warrior clans are the latter - always ready to fight and kill, never ready to surrender! With our combined might we shall take what is rightfully ours - all we can carry away from our slain enemies' bodies!"

Also, the old first base name needs to be changed - I wrote Free Company's Command, but I think we need something better. Suggestions?

Band of Brothers

As the base name? I'm not familiar with the connotations of this expression. Isn't there a movie with that name?  :scratch:

Yep.  It's colloquial English for how soldiers bond.

For headquarters, how about Headquarters?

Clan Headquarters, perhaps?

I'll add Band of Brothers to the base names.

HQ is good, I think. My objection to Headquarters is practical in nature - you don't want to confuse Headquarters (fac base) with Headquarters (your headquarters) or Headquarters (facility).

ariete has provided a bunch of good base names, but the first one needs to be changed because it referred to the old fac name. You can never have too many base names, though. How about some naval terms that we can play with? There are only five water base names so far.

I have now edited the .txt file as discussed above. Click the spoiler tag to have a look.

Changes:
  • Name of fac is now The Free Company
  • Leader's title changed to Warlord
  • Name of file is freecomp, so the pcx-files must be renamed accordingly
  • New Blurb
  • A few new water base names
  • Some minor changes of grammar and spelling

(click to show/hide)

This is good stuff!   :danc:

I've focused better my idea of project and i put down these factions txts where it can deduce the guide lines for a txts revisitation, that it need it, so if anyone want put hands we can do it everybody these new factions.
Last time i talked about the Spartan Federation split so these below are the first 4 factions that get out of my mind.
I’ve decided to do a political connotation of the main names that get out last time i visited this thread,Navy and Free Company. League is the term that in history was often connection to local comunity reunion, expecially for the defence-battle. To Navy i’ve decided Federation because there’s a connotation of ‘split in way of ….’ (in this case to the sea) (i hope you understand me  :D )
For else read below ….

Is missing a 5th faction that i wanna incluse LEGION in name. I’m thinked to something connected with high preparation for land units … it’s what miss
As you’ve read, i prefer to give to each faction just the tecnologies which can discover and build in the way of faction evocation. No FreeAbility or Free Facility, just the tecnologies to do it, this is to don’t create too advantages for some faction than others. This is my point of view but comments are pleased. I’m just describe why i did in this way.

Here below the ideas of graphics. I mantein the 3 leaders of old factions federation armada, union and kindom of carte, more adjusted and with new backround, and the images are ridimensioned … so cool her with that admiral uniform !! 
I’m looking for other version for the logos so if anyone want suggest …. discuss-it us …. And if always anyone want find a guessed idea for the 2 aliens factions missed i don’t know … maybe could be a sort of split of  an alien factions that fought with Spartans when they recruit alien form … i don’t know …..

And when at last it is time for the transition from megacorporation to planetary government, from entrepreneur to emperor, it is then that the true genius of our strategy shall become apparent, for energy is the lifeblood of this society and when the chips are down he who controls the energy supply controls Planet. In former times the energy monopoly was called 'The Power Company', we intend to give this name an entirely new meaning.
~CEO Nwabudike Morgan 'The Centauri Monopoly'
