I also found it quite funny when I saw a troll called Borg… resistance is futile… :lol:

On my local copies, I often change the unit name listings and add other self-made names, names from popular culture, people that I know, people on the forums, or even myself. I once killed Gambit (a footpad) with a certain heavy infantryman named Terminator. Unfortunately I kinda uninstalled 1.6.3 and lost the save... >.>

Wose names are often very amusing.

Wow, I didn't realise you could do that, how exactly do you do it. I would like to give it a go.

I can't decide if I should be flattered or boarding up my windows.

You know you were very unlucky. I needed both hits to kill you and you were standing on 60% defense terrain. So lucky :P

I didn't realize you could do this, but a quick look through the files found the place where each race's names are listed. I tried replacing the elvish names with my own stuff, but then I tested it in-game and it was trying to combine the syllables from one name with others. :augh: (which was actually somewhat amusing. I got an Elf Fighter named Turumyrran. Turuk + Blarumyrran. The only one that worked right was an elvish shaman named Noy... :lol2: ) How do I make it just use the exact names I list? :hmm:

Well, you could just rename them ingame, but that's not as funny. Manually creating humor is never as interesting as coincidences by secondhand changes.

About names, who remembers 'Noobs vs. Devs'? I think I'm going to put people from the forums in... With permission :P

Haha, did I imagine it or can't you rename them ingame?

And now I want to go and hide Borg, Terminator, R2D2, C3P0, and a bunch more random names in Steelhive's unit name file. Any other robot name ideas? (I -could- put Quote, but that's pushing the robot limits a bit.) Oh yeah. And Bender. Dalek too. Robocop! :D

I am wayyy too bored right now :P

Count me in!
Actually I have no idea what 'Noobs vs. Devs' is, but it sounds interesting and I don't care if you use my name. :P
