Thread: Name That Map!

  1. #1

    Default Name That Map!

    Calling all Unreal Tournament fans: Epic needs your help! We have a capture the flag map that needs a name, and we thought we’d turn to you for great ideas. We’ll start with an open call for name suggestions. We’ll give that until (9/10/07), then pick our favorite.

    Here’s some tips on how we choose a name:
    - It has to sound cool!
    - The name must be of the form “CTF-Name”. Multi-word names should be capitalized, i.e., “CTF-FirstSecondThirdWord”.
    - Don’t be silly with using names trademarked by someone else, immature stuff, etc.
    - The name has to fit the mood. This level takes place in orbit around Omicron 6, the home of the sinister Necris. CTF-HappySunriseBunnyKisses is not appropriate.
    - The name has to relate to the map closely, so that if someone says the map name you’ll know which one they mean. For example, a map with a big suspension bridge is called CTF-Suspense. The UT DM map with the deadly pressure chamber was called DM-Pressure. We’ve broken this rule sometimes, but it’s something we’re paying more attention to in UT3.
    - For this map, the obvious hook is the gorgeous skybox with the star (Omicron) rising over the planet’s horizon.

    To me it looks like the base is a part of that planet on the background that is falling apart and it also looks like the base (one of those parts) is heading for the planet to impact...so I think the name should be in that direction...CTF-Impact..:-)

    I'm waiting for some butthead to start posting suggestions for fixes for all the things they see in the map screenshots that will cause the downfall of CTF as we know it!

    CTF-Coronium

    I was going to suggest CTF-Corona since you see the star's corona bleeding out past the planet, but Coronium was a hypothetical element coined by astronomers in the mid-1800s to help explain inconsistencies in the sun's corona spectrum that was viewed during an eclipse. It was found out later that this "coronium" was just highly ionized iron and nickel. I picked Coronium since a lot of the map seems to be elemental with natural asteroid formations.

    The other ideas I had:
    CTF-DawnOfSorrow
    CTF-FinalDawn

    Very clean and at the same time detailed art BTW. Looks beautiful.

    Just a few that came to my mind with the sun as element for naming:

    CTF-RisingScreams

    CTF-RisingRadiance

    CTF-SpectralIrradiance

    CTF-Irradiance *

    CTF-Chromosphere (or CTF-Chormosfear)

    CTF-Necrosphere

    CTF-BowShock

    CTF-SolarShock


    *) This is my personal favourite. Irradiance is a real word like it is often used in UT maps (Sulphur, Asbestos, etc...). Irradiance isn't a very common term, but it still includes radiance (which refers to emitted light as in the sunbeams of the skybox). It also sounds some sort of irritating, or irreal, which I would expect from a Necris world. I think it also sounds nice.

    There's a long time before that happens.

    I wonder if the legal department has to do a name search of something first?

    Could you give us a little more on the map style then? We can give it a locational name, but not much else.

    Yeah... what were the inspirations of the design team when they were creating this map. It seems to me that the very dark with orange highlights theme to the architecture is heavily inspired by that sunrise/sunset in the background.

    Any other themes that guided the art department?
