View Full Version : Help Achilles name his new mod


Achilles

Hi folks,

I have a really weird problem:

I spent several days working on a new mod, but once it was finished, I couldn't think of a good name for it, so I didn't release it. It's been sitting there on my desktop begging to be released for weeks, but I can't send it out into the world without a name can I?

So, since I'm obviously not capable of handling this on my own, I'm asking for your help.

Many of you may remember the NPC mods that I created a few weeks ago. The first two that I released (Mendah and Telkka Zil) were part of a set. The idea was to create three new Jedi (one of each class) to replace NPC's that I normally just left on the ship.

Everyone knows about the first two, but I want to keep the last character under wraps until I release the set. What I'm asking for is help naming the mod.

If you have an idea, please submit it before August 11th. One suggestion will be selected and that will be the name that I use for the mod. Sounds like a lame "contest" I know, but I'm hoping it will at least keep us entertained for a few days :)

Thanks in advance for playing!

The List (In alphabetical order):

Achilles' Angels
Achilles' Jedi Council
Achilles' Knights
Achilles' Recruit Plug-in
Achillies' Army of the Light
Achillies' Jedi trio
Bane of the Sith
Bearers of Justice

Jedi Liberators
Jedi Vice
Knights of Achilles
Knights of Glory
LS Jedi Pack

Order of Achilles
Spirit of the Jedi
The Achilles Three

Giant Monkey of Doomness...... :lol:

sorry I had to, but okay on a serious note, could you at least say if the new NPC is a human or another race, it will help the process.

I already have a name for the NPC; I can't think of what to call the mod.

"New Jedi Team" sounded completely lame and "Armada" was already taken :)

Just so that I don't seem evasive, the answer to your question is "I think it's human".

I hope that helps.

If you are going to package all three recruits together then how about...

Achilles' Jedi Council

Kind of the Anti-Sith Armada! :D

I never really thought of personalizing the name like RedHawke.

What about Order of Achillies or Knights of Achillies

'Order of Achillies--The Sith Purge'

Well seriously, i like Redhawke's and Nacho 35's proposals. I think your name should definitely be in the title: it's a solid reference now :)

to be honest, i'm not that creative with names (just wait till i have kids). if ya want a real opinion that only this not-creative-at-naming-person thinks, you should rename your jedis to kyle, jaden, and rosh and call it "jedi academy".

Edit: or would that violate copyright laws??

Potentially, but those names are way too New Jedi Order. Thanks for contributing for the mod name though.

Everyone,

There's two days left, but something seems to have staunched the flood of responses. Input is still more than welcome :)

Err...that's a joke right? Trojans got there name because you unwittingly invite them into your system and then they do "bad stuff" when you aren't looking (much like the warriors who hid inside a wooden horse, then snuck out and sacked the city of Troy). If mythology books are too dry for you, they recently made a movie about that particular conflict. I believe Brad Pitt plays me...:D

Destroy the Trojans now, before they become Romans.

Should we have known your true identity by then... :dev11:

I wouldn't chose the Trojan War: some people will be afraid to download yout mod or they will think it's a new antivirus :D

What's a few extra zero's amongst friends, right? I'm thinking that Trojan Knights was probably fodder :)

No. I was serious about that. Darth 333 brings up a good point about trojans though.

How about Jedi of Light?

Very sneaky. Due to lack of sleep last night, I momentarily thought that I had imagined your post and was afraid that I was losing my mind :Laugh:

*Still impressed that you remembered the age thread*

Yes, I suppose an update is overdue. Unfortunately I wasn't thinking ahead when I scheduled this "contest" to coincide with the final week of class. The final day of class is tomorrow and I should have nothing but free time between Thursday and Saturday. Expect to see a final release no later than Saturday.

Stay tuned :bounce1:
