Hey everyone, 

 

I thought that we could have a little fun and come up with some UNIQUE & EXCLUSIVE SHIP NAMES/CLASSES for each Race in the game. I figured since we finished showing off all the Bulrathi ships we can start here and work on each individual races. For reference I'll post the collage that shows all the ships in this topic. Also note that there are two different styles for each class of ship...so that means two different Names/Classes per ship. Let's have some fun! 

 

 

Some examples from famous Sci-Franchise  (Star Trek:Galaxy Class, Constitution Class, Romulan D´Drex Class...et or Star Wars: X-wing, Y-wing, Tie Fighters...et).

Doomstar - a lot of bears in a box. :p  Sorry about that, but that Doomstar surely could use some more features on it.

 

I would also swap the places of the Cruisers, since in my opinion the lower one is a bit more consistent with the design philosophy of the upper row.

Moreover, I advise that the tactical combat must be made more player controllable and informative for this to become a proper MOO game.

 

​The long lost formula for space 4X game success = Good tactical combat + good empire management > than just good tactical combat or good empire management alone.

Fr    Sentinel    Vigilance
De    Protector    Defender
Cr    Guardian    Aegis
Bs    Nemesis     Vengance
Ti    Crusader    Retribution
Ds    Citadel

The Bulrathi culture is described as both protective and aggressive and thus their ship names are indicative of this.

Their smallest ships are ever alert for danger, watching for signs of aggression from neighboring races and ever ready to call the Bulrathy war machine to action.

The next two classes of ships are quick to deploy to ensure the safety of those under Bulrathi protection against pirates, outlaws and foreign races alike.

The two upper tiers of ships are named to evoke the idea of going on the offense for a righteous cause.  When the worlds under their care are safe from attack, it is time to bring the fight to the enemy.

Finally the citadel.  Once parked in orbit around a star it serves as nearly impregnable base from which the Bulrathi can assert dominance over the surrounding system, whether that system be friendly or that of a foe.

This post gets my vote for names of ships. I just got finished with the Sakkra, and came here to try my luck and see that my idea was already here, fully fleshed out.


 

Bravo to you Starfox_sfx for a great list of names that fits the race.

I am currently in the process of putting in some of the suggestion into the concept art....however it is a little tougher than I had originally thought. My photoshop skills are at Sakkra level :(

Ok so after a bit of trial and error...and much frustration in photoshop I finally got this thing done! So here is the first round of ships with the names suggested by the COMMUNITY! Remember, these are not the actual names of the Ships, they are just community suggested names I shopped into the art. Up next: Cruisers and Battleships
