Ok well I only build h4's so I name them like this:

1. By fleet- Fleets have 10 ships in them each, one named 'Tactical_Cube-*', where the * is the fleet letter. The other nine in the fleet are called 'Cube-*#' where # is the number of the ship in the fleet and * is the fleet letter.

2. Unimatrices- These are specific ships that never leave the WP. I have 3 of them, but this is basically pointless because there is nothing special about them anyways.

3. After friends- I have a few named after subs, sups, or friends that I have had. If you are a 'special' person to me in some way, then you can pm me to name one after you.

The main bulk of my fleet is called Cube. Once Maelstroem releases fleets, I might just name them all cube. In case you didn't know, the cube is the primary ship in the Borg fleet in Star Trek.

In Kosmor.com I just have some H4, all named Drops#. In Kosmor.de the names are individually for H11, H10 and H9 just named after weapons of old tales, some of my Planetes or whatever im thinking about if im building them. All of my Interceptors have the same name. The H1 are all named "Schild#" (Shield).

Wow Imagine if there was a Borg Tactical Cube in Kosmor.
I wonder how good it'll do.
I'd like to see a fight with a UNSC Ship vs. a Borg Tac Cube, or Pyramid.

If you don't destroy the cube on your first hit, you're basically dead. Borg shields adapt to weaponry very quickly.

well since this topic last time i built a lot of h1 in .de
they were named like this:

Aegis_A_I

A = letter from the name of the planet it was built at [sometimes 2 letters... Aa if i had 2 shipyards with the same first letter]

I => each day of production had a number... all the ships that day had the roman numeral of that day

this means that not all planets had I II III etc... and some had only XV and greater or whatever, but was a managable system i could use

aegis of course from the greek - shield
etymology wrote:
aeˇgis also eˇgis Audio pronunciation of "aegis" ( P ) Pronunciation Key (js)
n.

1. Protection: a child whose welfare is now under the aegis of the courts.
2. Sponsorship; patronage: a concert held under the aegis of the parents' association.
3. Guidance, direction, or control: a music program developed under the aegis of the conductor.
4. Greek Mythology. The goatskin shield or breastplate of Zeus or Athena. Athena's shield carried at its center the head of Medusa.


[Latin, from Greek aigis, goatskin, skin shield, aegis, from aix, aig-, goat.]

I named my H4 after snakes, My H10 after important concepts, and my H11 after the name of my House, which comes from Dune. The idea of Great Houses and a futuristic feudal hierarchy is important in Dune.

I have a extremely exciting and original way of naming my ships. It is as follows:

All H1: H1
All H2: H2
All H3: H3
All H4: H4
All H5: H5
All H6: H6
All H7: H7
All H8: H8
All H9: H9
All H10: H10
All H11: H11

Creative, eh? Well, I used to name them after European/Russian cities, acording to size (11-Capitals, 10, Larger pops, and down so forth...), but I got tired of having to do that Wink

My ships are named after ancient Greek legends:
(TSF means "Trojan Star Force" , # is increasing number)

H1: TSF-Thanatos-####
H2: TSF-Perseus-##
H3: TSF-Medusa-##
H4: TSF-Daedalus-###
H5: TSF-Charybdis-##
H6: TSF-Zephyros-##
H7: TSF-Skylla-##
H8: TSF-Tartaros-##
H9: TSF-Prometheus-##
H10: TSF-Pegasus-###
H11: TSF-ATLAS-##

and some special names "TSF-X-........" for the honorable imperators of Troja (e.g. "TSF-X-JackONeill" Very Happy )

All my ships are listed by groups or detachment...

My H1 are WeedEater-WE#

My H2 is FantomFreeFighter (inspired from the Megadeth song FFF)

My H3 are FreedomCharger-FC#

My H4 (because I'm a non-pro) are named by groups of 10 (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9), and the names of the groups are chosen by greek prefixes and letters + the group qualifications+ - + first letter of the 2 words + number of the ship in this group

so it does :

AlphaTroops-At#
BetaUnits-BU#
DeltaForces-DF#
EpsylonTeam-ET#
GammaCommando-GC#
OmegaTacticals-OT#
StarGuardians-SG#
TeraMinions-TM#

comming soon:

GigaSquad-GS#
MegaDetachment-MD#
PetaScouts-PS#
ExaCruisers-ES#
ZettaKnights-ZK#
YottaHords-YH#

and others...

Also, there may be some ships of mine called by the name of the member of my house EG:

KeithSquads-KS# that doesn't exist anymore (destroyed)....

Well you know I do not understand why people number thier ships. I mean you are helping your oppenents more than you are yourself. You should know how strong you are based on your cp. But to each your own.

I no longer number my ships for this reason. I just name all my ships a generic name based on thier class. Like shield for h4s and destroyer for h9s and Hunter class for my h10s. But i give them famous names(after gods of the greek, egyptian, and summerian panthion. Also just random names that I can think of) if they have more than 50 experiance or so. Just a rule of thumb. I got sick of renaming my destroyed ships over and over....sigh my poor ships Laughing.

Numbering gives away your strength, if you number sequentially and/or reuse numbers. Why not jump from 10 to 50? Opponents will assume that 11-49 are out there somewhere.

everyone thinks he has much more fleet than he does Wink
