Ship name lists

[size=9]I have edited the thread title to keep it up to date with the new release that stopped random colours, and the impending release that will allow choosing colours. Also, I removed the question mark. It's DEFINATELY a ship name list :) - Diamondblade.

Also, this post is no longer being updated. Later on in the thread there is a newer list.

Has anyone compiled a full list of ship adjective/nouns and colour combinations? I hunted around and couldn't find the information anywhere. It would be nice to know so one knows not to bother asking for an aquamarine-plaid sloop called the "Persnicketty Perriwinkle".

Re: Ship name lists

What would be handy would be to see who owned what?

The Assasins Guild have the Dangerous Stickleback and the Seamstresses Guild have the (Something) Needlefish. I know that Mackerel has a couple of ships named the (something) Mackerel too.
I'd love anything with Tiger in the title eg Tigerfish, Tigershark.

It would make offering a swap with PoE for an approriate ship name easier if we knew who to approach.

I didn't see Dangerous in those lists!

I think there's both an Orange or natural wood/brown and a Red/brown. Contrast the Hard-Headed Clownfish and the Merry Needlefish and tell me what you think.

Pick yer wanted name from the handy (incomplete though they may be) lists up above, do /vwho on said name, and off to the right shows all the different crews who have the ship. Most crews, (especially with the recent implementation of the notice board) should be able to tell you from there who owns which ship.

Re: Ship name lists

Don't forget "Wrong". It causes so much fun.

"Ahoy, come aboard the Trout!"
"Which Trout?"
"The Wrong Trout."
"What?"
"No, you're on the wrong Trout, that's the Kind Trout! Board the WRONG Trout!"
"But you said I *am* on the wrong Trout!"
"...nevermind."

Re: Ship name lists

there is a brown/red ship as well... This looks similar to the brown/orange. I have screenshots of each color in a sloop:

** images removed so they're only in the first post **

I don't actually know what the banner colors are for each. I'm working on that. I know that the
Wood/Green has a white banner
Aqua/Brown has a yellow banner
Orange/White has a grey banner
Lt.Blue/Dk.Blue has a grey banner

Re: Ship name lists

As far as I can tell, banner color is independent of ship color. Like shops, each ship seems to have a Primary, Secondary, and "Cloth" color.

not positive on this one, though so please check!

Re: Ship name lists

that's fine. I made them to be used with ship descriptions on our flag website. These are simply the sloop ones, which actually seem to illustrate the colors best. I would prefer they weren't used outside of this forum though without my permission, as the webspace they are on has limited bandwith.

Re: Ship name lists

I have a cutter named the Half Plaice. Plaice is on the list, but I didn't find Half.

I'd like to add for any OMs that are reading this, next time you're naming boats for contest prizes consider "First Plaice" as an option.
