Vehicles naming

Post by Midonik » Tue Jul 10, 2018 9:16 am

Guys,how should we name vehicles:
-By "models": Like "T-34", "M4" and stuff
-By "nicknames": Like "suchka"
-By "types": Like "light tank", "speeder", "multirole plane"

Vehicles by models. Ships by name of people or location in the lore. Planes by like the WW2 planes. (Je46B=Jernigen model 46B)

So we make up models for alien vehicles?

Reptillians will name their vehicles with nicknames and letter at the end to show which model. (Nardz A)

Honestly, I'm for "types" variant. I think it will be possible, and it tells a lot about unit at a first glance, unlike models. Also, I never liked models idea.

I prefer names by nicknames, types are just too bland and straightfoward for a sci-fi game. Types are more for medieval era.

Nicknames, unlike models retain some of the purposes for it's usage in the name if done right.

Nicknames can also have far more personality than both model and type names.
