Default Having Sectors Named after you

Hello all, I was recently wondering about whether or not you could have a sector named after you in this mod, and I P.M.ed Chris Gi about it and he told me to ask what people's verdict on it was.

Say, if (in my case), you've been modding the Galaxy Map for when Pandora comes out, and there's a sector that you really like, and you'd like a whole bunch of people to know you made or something, you could have the system named after you, and it would work out.

So, what do you guys think?
Would you like to have a sector named after you?

Maybe not directly: like Sector Adlantis is the best. But maybe in some different way (i can't think of yet) or in the Sectors description (this Sector found and colonized by the Swahili!!! Corp. is one of the most impressive Sectors found in the X-Universe
But that's just my opinion...

Gravemind! You stole my idea!

I wanted Sector 12-10 to be called Leighton's Revenge!

Cheers,

Well, I do understand that you wish a sector to be named after you. We all put much work in this mod. I want my name somewhere on the map for everyone else to see, that is was me, who took part in the production of the mod.

But I don't like the idea of a sector named after me. Not because it sounds stupid in my case: 'Chris Gi's End' . I have something different in mind:
It has to do with something I don't like when playing mods: you fly around, target some cool new ship and the bord computer says - ' '. This is annoying in fights, when you fight several ships and you don't know which one you're targeting. That's why the ships in the gallery have very uninspired names like 'Argon Buster MK2'. It sounds a little stupid, but if you target this ship, the bord computer says 'Argon Buster MK2'. And that's cool.
I do have the same idea for sectors. To use part of names that are spoken, combine them in a new way, to get a new name for a sector: 'Nathan's Beacon'. Unfurtunately, this doesn't work for sector names as simple as for ship names. Ship names will be spoken by the bord computer if you edit two text files in a special way. For sector names, you have to actually create these names, edit the sound files (which are BTW really big - about 124MB) and edit the two text files. It's much more work. But it sounds really cool if you arrive at a non-vanilla sector and the bord computer says: 'Entering system: Nathan's Beacon'.

But how about naming stations after you: 'Chris Gi Spaceweeds'

That's cool, it's like what E.R.Hyland did with his ERH_MWM_Redux mod.

Oh, by the way, are people okay with sectors and/or stations named after you?

ive got here in this round a old idea!. why not making extra ships they look like names... they are flying around in a unknown sector that you must buy the informations from any station and then you can jump in for maybe 100 energycells or so there would fly everywhere the names of the modders and contribut0r´s and my old sector name idea was Credit´s on a old galaxy picture there are 1 grey sector at the bottom of the picture there should be the credit´s sector be.

Interesting idea, but I'm not positive I know what you mean by it.
