No Limit on Commander Themes in C# Please
« on: February 20, 2018, 07:15:42 PM »
So I don't know if I just missed it, but a feature of VB6 Aurora that mildly irritates me is the fact you can only have up to 5 pools of name lists to draw off of.  In my opinion, this is simply not enough to represent a multi-system empire.  Hell, it's not even enough to represent Earth.  Now I know that there is the Nations of Earth theme, but what if I'm going with an alternate scenario? Please, Please let us have more pools to draw off of.

I believe there is a way for you to make one and submit it for use.

See, but I'm not trying to create a new theme.  In the Race menu (ctrl + f2,) You have your Commander Name Theme, with the additional option of up to 4 more themes.  I would like this list to be expanded, due to the ability to on-the-fly change themes as well as have varying percentages.

Oh I see. Well I believe you can change the chosen themes whilst playing and you can set their percentages but fair enough for wanting more.

Nations of Earth is an empire theme, not a commander theme. It's a set of ship classes names and ranks.
I wish commander name themes could be mixed in-game too, so you could have say a spanish first name with a german last name. I know the United States commander theme can do that but it still largely outputs English-american names.

If I remember correctly, in C# players will be able to create commander themes, do you could just make a custom theme that combines the first and last name pools of whatever theme you want.  Doesn't help if you want separate pools though, which I imagine Lucifer does since he didn't mention combing pools, just wanting the ability to use more at once.
