hi all.

im just curious as to what type of role you see yourself playing in SC.

for myself the idea of exploration and salvage seems interesting to me. but possibly escort may be interesting as well. ( some dog fighting might be fun hehe )

the reason im asking is. i think we should get a list of roles, and then see if we can fit them to a organization name.

it looks like it would be a good idea to create one now. before what ever we come up with gets taken. i was browsing it today, and there are a whole pile of them already registered.

also what would we be?

organization
corporation
PMC (private military company?)
faith
syndicate

in MWO it seems the unit name would go along the lines of a military type group name. but this seems like it should sound like a legitimate type name to me? possibly like a business name?

for example: Trident Corporation. Exploration,Salvage and Security. ( could go by TESS for short? or TCESS)

anyways let me know your guys thoughts and ideas on this!

<S>

Mostly want to blow crap up with lots (did I mention lots) of guns. I have no patience for stealth or running around in circles exploring.

I vote HSMM for name. Hammer's Spacefaring Mental Midgets. PDT_Armataz_01_28

But in all seriousness a name like you suggested that covers the range of activities works for me.

I like it BH, but it could be a multi disciplined company. Having divisions that specialize in security, Transport and exploration. Light Horse Consolidated industries LLC.
1.Light Horse Security Conceptss: a wholly owned subsidiary of Light Horse Consolidated. Transport or convoy Escort, VIP escort, asset protection and fugitive recovery ( legal Bounty Hunting). ( should hold Hudson over hehe)
2. Light Horse Hauling and Transport : You Call we haul, transportation of commercial goods, raw materials and any other thing that needs to go from point A to point B.
3.Dark Horse Exploration : Finding new worlds, new raw resources, Artifact discovery and recovery, and Jump points.

We Have different players with different interests and with that we have different ships so why not use that to our advantage. tell me you think.

i like the Light Horse Consolidated idea.

the name "light horse" isnt in the group data base either.

i dont think it matters much how we break up stuff internally. at least at this point.



that would still leave what type of outfit we should be?


organization
corporation
PMC (private military company?)
faith
syndicate

those are the only options available at this time. im thinking corporation. but im just wanting to make sure its the right fit.

there is also an part that talks about why type of unit we are. from casual to hard core... i think more casual just because of the different type of people who may be playing with us. even though im sure i will probably get kind of hard core on this game lol. ( been waiting for a LONG time for a good space game again..)

Syndicate? Edges or outside the law? Seems like it'd be good for no questions asked cargo runs, hired mercenary/guns, running over to LV 426 and do a scan for life forms - oh and don't ask questions, etc. We can have morals, but we don't have to if we're a syndicate. We also don't have to necessarily follow the law, especially if there be different regions with different governments. If they're oppressive or disagreeable, we can just operate how we want in their space. I'm assuming a corporation would normally try to adhere to local law (think Google operating in China...)

some good points Hudson.


while the archetype kind of dictates what you would do role play wise, it dosn't really dictate what you can do.

even though i own a Cutlass, i dont plan on being a pirate lol. although, i wouldn't be above "salvaging" everything i can get my hands on once i blew something up. ;)
i imagine many of us will probably be doing stuff like shipping and escort to start out?

maybe 'Organization' would be the route to go?

thanks for that link BTW. kind of explains more.

I'd be fine with Organization too. That or Syndicate would be vague enough to allow whoever to do whatever without violating the look and feel of the thing. I imagine some groups are going to be hard core guns for hire PMC types and while that appeals to me I expect some here will not want to do that, so I'm good with the vague touch.

well, to get seriously into this? probably around 2016.

the main reason i brought this up was because a lot of the org names are being taken NOW. the ORG names of the backers are taking front stage to the names after the game is released. i could be jumping the gun, but i thought WTH. if we get in before the race starts its worth it.

i understand its hard to get excited about a game that hasnt even reached full beta yet. what excited me, is the fact that they are interacting with the backers. there are times the devs interact with the backers of the game and even respond to posts sent by the backers.


as stupid as this sounds. at some point you have to put faith in something. after the treatment of MWO to those who invested, ive lost faith in that. but, because of how CIG has responded to its backers, i decided to put faith in them. in the end, that may prove foolish. but, i would rather reward a team who is trying to care about its backers ( or at least pretending to?) then spending money on a team who in the end, dosnt seem to give a crap.
