Changing Captain Name
« on: January 18, 2003, 02:31:02 am »

When I first played the game, I could change my names easily because I did it without really trying. Now, when I start a new game, I can't figure out how to change the captain's name.

For the PC version, you could change your names.... I don't remember being able to do it with the actual 3DO version.  Can you do it with this UQM version?  Haven't tried looking for that option myself..... Tongue

I change the name once when the game begins.....after that I just figured that the captain was the one survivor :-)

The one survivor or what? Vela? You bring about 80 people with you. The Sa-Matra explosion? I think it's specified that the escape pod is big enough for everyone. Probably just a plot device to ease your conscience.

Of any battle sequence.  Since I never want to change the name of my Captain, I always assumed he was the one that lived (keeping my ship from blowing up).

In the PC version, the last crewmember of the flagship was represented by a different color than the rest of the crew in the indicator bar.  Presumably this is the captain (i.e. you).

If you get your mother ship down to 1 crew often enough that it's a decent excuse to change the captain's name, well, I'm very sorry for the new alliance of free stars!

You can change the names in the 3DO version, so I would assume that you would be able to in the re-release as well. Smiley

Huh.  Played the 3DO version completely through once or twice and never found or noticed you could change the names.  Learn something new everyday  Tongue
