It’s coming along quite nicely. Most of the ‘concepts’ throw up a heap of illogicalities that lead to bug hunting. I’m in no rush, if Scient can fix something so it doesn’t have to be explained away—all to the better.

These are good!  Is there a compiled list of replacement txt files?

One thought for more base names is to take geography/cities from Earth, from locales near where the leader of that faction originates.

On the previous page there are links to the text files on the wiki which include many of the base names. They will also hopefully be included in Scient’s next update.

This is a tough one; the Spartans are a philosophical mess if you credit them any ideology beyond loving guns, conquest and military stuff - but they clearly think that libertarian ideas and military discipline are compatible.  A cynic would conclude all their talk about liberty and individualism is empty.  They just like guns.

Note that the military basenames make the most comfortable fit.

In fact, notwithstanding their well-established distain for Wealth as an SE/goal, a libertarian streak, to the extent it was real, would ultimately leave them a lot in common with the Morganites in aspirations, if not approach...

This completely slipped my mind before, but the maximum characters for a base name is twenty four. Anything longer then that will be clipped.

Without counting - that's most likely to be a problem with Morgan names, which all burn off seven characters up front...

Of those that I’d copied over, there were a few Morgan, University, Hive, and Peacekeeper ones. Sloppy checking by me.

Make sense; all with a UN suffix and/or cultures that tend to verbosity over short phrases.

If there is agreement, we could give the Morganites a more corporate abbreviation

Makes sense, but the most I can imagine Morgan giving in on the issue is parting with the space between Morgan and the rest of the name - when it would make it one word, like MorganSoft...

I’d have thought he’d be happy dropping the vowels, though that only buys us two letters, plus the space makes three so:MrgnSoft

I maintain nonetheless that yin-yang dualism can be overcome. With sufficient enlightenment we can give substance to any distinction: mind without body, north without south, pleasure without pain. Remember, enlightenment is a function of willpower, not of physical strength.
