  • Base Names

    I'm looking for files or lists people have already made for base names. Forwhy? In larger maps, I hit the "generic" base names quite frequently. Now, nothing wrong with those really -- I can think of several ways to make that list gigormously long. For the Consciousness, my fav faction, it's easy too -- they use all the Greek letters.

    But! What about the other factions? I mean, base names are easy mods Anyone? Bueller?

                    I have a LOT of extra Base names for all the factions... i'm kinda lazy how I do it though... I have a bunch of mostly nonsense names and then i add other words to them to make base names...

                    i.e. take "Beta"
                    For gaian land, I change that to "Beta Garden"... etc.

                    Here are the "extras i use... (sortof...) (some of the below are custom factions off the net...)

                    Suffixes
                    Faction Land Water

                    Agriculture Geodome Hydrodome

                    Usurpers Nest Sea Nest

                    Those are all words that come afterwards so that the list is alphabetical...

                    THEN... the fat list of about 85 or so names for bases... Use "replace all" to create a quick set of new bases...
                    (You replace the word Sector with one from the above list; i.e. for Data Angels, the list starts Alpha Data Base, Arxa Data Base...)

                      Does anyone have any good base names for the Morganites and Peacekeepers? All those Morgan this and U.N. that names are kinda boring.

                        How did you...

                        I am working on mod which essentially contains expanded base lists for all factions (which is why I have been nagging you binTravkin). I haven't quite gotten to Peacekeepers yet, but all Morgan names I added follow the formula of original SMAC names. I've added some 30 base names for Peacekeepers so far and some 10-15 of them abandon traditional base name formula for Peacekeepers.

                        Since I am away from home, the lists have so far been made on paper and I don't have the time to type them over until I've finished at uni. Perhaps if you could wait a week or two until exams are over and my mod is done.

                          That would be great!

                          Btw, just wonderig, did you ever put all quotes in one blurbs text file as you said here you would do? The SMAX base facility quotes are lacking from the xblurbs.txt file, and it would be a waste of time to scratch them all together myself if you had already done so.

                            I did work on that and managed to do about a third (up to Believers) of the job. However, I did some additional things, like sorting them per author and work from which they "originated", adding information about from origin of the quote (SMAC, SMAX, leftover file or GURPS) and listing alphax.txt codes for the technology faction triggering it for eventual help to modders.

                            Against my expectations, it was taking much more time than I assumed I will need, so I temporarily stopped working on it and finished Chiron Archives instead.

                            I will finish it after I finish my current project. Unfortunately, files are on my home computer, but I will upload it and put it in my signature when I finish it.

                            Oh, and I have a thing or two nearly ready to upload which you will probably find very interesting.
