Should we take suggestions and make polls for names for [Facilities] and [Weapons]?
I mean, for facilities at least I can't think of many suggestions, we cannot stray much from the purpose of the facility. [Laboratory] cannot be much other than Laboratory itself, maybe Research Lab, or something very alike.
And about weapons, the starting weapons are pistols and rifles, equipment has been voted, so how to name the [Pistol] other than Pistol?.
So, what do you think?, more suggestions for [Facilities] and [Weapons]?

Well, if it's not too much work, I'd like to continue seeing the polls- I think it's fun! Some of the more "obvious" entries like Pistols and Laboratories just make it more challenging. Maybe Personal Sidearm or the actual name of the gun (i.e. Glock or Beretta); Experimental Science Facility or Research Center.

If it's more hassle than it's worth, I can understand. But maybe we can run more polls concurrently?

How about a poll to see whether the majority wants more polls or not? :P
Seriously, I can see no harm in making those other polls, we can only get better names than 'pistol', and if we don't then we just use 'pistol' :D

Not all ;) dipstick...

Generic names like pistols, rifle, may need a tweak as they are not cool ;)... but for other standard names, I dont think we can change anything. Take a look if you see that there is a posibility to improve the naming, go for it. But if not declare them as final.

Ok then, another issue is the name of our Fusion Bomb and FUsion Bomb Launcher (Blaster bomb and launcher). Should we keep a name that's that identical to our real Fusion bombs? (those nasty bombs that need the explosion of a fission bomb in order to go boom)
I don't really know if we should keep it or poll again, or pick the second most voted, don't know, what do you think?

As the original writer of the Fusion Bomb CTs, I say we vote again... And that at least have names that match up with what's written in the CT already....

Hmmmm :Coffee: , should we also take suggestions for the rest of Alien weapons and equipment?, like the Plasma Pistol, Rifle, etc? or do you want to see the classic ones in Xenocide?

I think other than a few modifications to fit the new naming scheme, plasma weapons don't need new names. Those like BB launcher, stun bomb etc might tho.

no - plasma and laser should stay the same, IMO. We wouldn't want to do the same as in TFTD, by replacing the names just to replace the names... :huh?:

That's a good point, mikker, but maybe we can still change the "pistol, rifle, heavy, cannon" clasifications a bit? I dunno, maybe "sidearm/handgun/blaster, carbine, advanced/assault, (linear) accelerator/battery"?

In other words, laser blaster/plasma blaster, laser carbine/plasma carbine, assault laser/assault plasma, etc.

3. heavy laser / plasma rifle

Ok, new name suggestions for all of them, either we end up with better ones or with the same, can't lose.
