empire specific "heroes" naming theme
« on: June 28, 2020, 11:51:30 AM »
What I'm suggesting is a new naming theme to which names of heroes are automatically added as they appear.
Designating someone as a hero could be done via medals (new checkbox in medals creation window).

As an example:
1) Create a medal and tick the new checkbox "hero" (or whatever you may call it).
2) The medal gets awarded to someone for some kind of achievement, the person's name gets added to the "heroes" naming theme.
3) If a ship class uses the "heroes" naming theme a constructed ship automatically gets assigned a name of an empire specific hero.

I hope the description isn't too confusing.
Tell me what you think.

I knew what you meant as soon as I read the title and only read your actual post to confirm that I was not misunderstanding.

I like this idea quite a lot.

I also like this concept but with the addition of the following stat:

Using the 'hero' or 'ace' concept you can boost morale to the crew or army in which the commander is assigned if still alive.

A continuation on this could be ships / regiments of renown where a unit that distinguishes itself can get a bonus to morale or training.  These bonuses could be extended to an entire task force or forces on the same planet, with the caveat that if the ship/regiment is destroyed the formation looses morale

To continue on this maybe add a bad status "shock" for a fleet which has lost a hero.
The "shock" status should only linger for a short time but should worsen the fleet's performance considerably as long as it lasts.
Gunning for the enemy's heroes might actually be a viable tactic with this.
Though, you'd need a way to identify them first.

I feel like adding bonuses would probably be a lot more difficult than just having a naming theme, so I feel the need to note that just the naming theme would be pretty cool in its own right.

I see it the same way.
The name theme is the main part and heroes having an actual use is secondary.

So, how do I go about this now?
Do I post it in the Suggestions thread at the top?
