Here we are again giving players the opportunity to name another planet by voting in the poll that follows. Let’s start this round off again by commenting which planets we would like to see receive a name. Here are the planets from last time that are still unnamed:
Are there any other suggestions out there? Sound off in the comments below! I double checked this time so hopefully I didn’t include any that already have names
TL;DR Please comment WHICH PLANET you want to receive a name below
Here’s the informal names I’ve been using for planets.
QQ-645b - Mythril
A low pressure planet that is the primary ALO source for the Moria CX. Currently has two different bases on it.
XH-594c - Goldust
A TS and AUO source between Moria and Benten. The best TS option in this universe, but is unfortunately cold so it ends up being similar value to colonize compared to HE3 gas giants. No one has yet colonized it.
XG-452f - Xharbeard
The primary cold gas giant source of both H and AR to Moria. With flexible collectors and one of the best H options available in the area. Now sports three separate bases. Is a very attractive option, similar to KI-401d nearby Antares, for the flexibility of bases on it.
DW-419a - Cookhouse
A planet I just colonized to take advantage of the new BOR recipe for SF. One of the first high pressure planets to be colonized in the universe.
No suggestions for any of these, but I’ve bandied this one about a bit:
UV-351d - Frostbite
A gas giant in the Benten system with solid Ammonia and gaseous Nitrogen content. Cold temps (hence ‘frost’) and difficult to colonize for all the extra construction materials (hence ‘bite’).
That’s actually where the name comes from. Jacuribu was the first to colonize it and wanted something that started with X, since it’s the first letter in the catalogue number. The next three letters are H AR. Beard because of the joke we were throwing around of a dwarf/pirate theme.
Thanks for the exhaustive list, very impressive. Would everyone like to see a poll with all of these (inhabited) planets or would a more condensed list be preferable?
I asked molp about changing the accreditation for Hermes, but unfortunately it isn’t possible yet. Hopefully we implement the change soon and then I’ll have him give CyriusPatton his rightly deserved credit.
The list of inhabited unnamed planets is a bit too long for a vote really, and will only get longer in future rounds (assuming I do the work to check all planets each time, unless the team can supply a list of populated planets). The list is in order of population, largest first, so maybe limit it to those with suggestions, and the first 3 without, that limits the vote to 9 planets.
Looks like XH-594b has finally pulled through and will be receiving a name! So far, we have Kiruna / Cattle Corner / Flieouverus / Jaagmyctip / Crystal Caves / Starlifter’s Planet / Rocky Palace / Mine / Spectre as suggested names. Are there any others out there?
