New names for default ships

22 Jan 2018 16:47

Post here suggestions for names for the Shuttle and Skylone ships. The first one is not a name actually, the second one could be copyrighted. So I think we must choose a good names for these two.

Simpler ones would be:
Transporter for the shuttle
Aileron for the other shuttle

Since I like birds I'd propose:

Milvus-class shuttle

and

Vultur-class shuttle

Milvus is the scientific name for kites, vultur is for a species of condor.

My reasoning for adding "x-class shuttle" rather than just giving them unique names is that both shuttles look like something that would be mass-produced and used in large numbers, and they both do identical jobs in practice, hence the common "shuttle" classification.

JackDole, this is not about giving the ships names in that sense.  This is about giving the shuttles a generalized name instead of just shuttle and skylone.

As I pointed out to Phunnie, in my Trek addon I have 2 ships, one named Orinoco and one named Rio Grande, they are the same class of shuttle.  If these were SpaceEngine ships they would not be listed as those names in the menu, instead there would be one single model called Runabout.

Just to clarify: I asking about the ship model name. There are many default starships named like "Harmony-IIb", "Explorer-1", "Jump Freighner". But "Shuttle" has no name, it just matches the craft class name (shuttle - surface-to-orbit class). "Skylone" is another shuttle-class craft which has a name, but I want to change it.

Shuttles go back and forth from earth to space like a dog that takes the bone and brings it back, so I would use names of dog breeds like "retriever" and "greyhound" or "terrier" and "spaniel"
