Lets name the Astroneer characters!

Recommended Posts

Well we have (for now) 4 different "Characters/suits" to choose from, but they are nameless, classless but so full of character that i think each one deserve a name. I hate calling my favorite character "the orange one" and i totally prefer to call it "Mike" or "Ace" ( because that kind of orange space suit its called Advanced Crew Escape Suit ACES).

So lets all suggest names for the crew and maybe we can choose the winners and have some kind of callout for every character when we talk about them in the forums!

List of characters (tell me if im wrong please!) and my name suggestions:

  • Default one (the standard first one): Indie (he is an adventurer like Indiana Jones)
  • Heavy Suit: Bob..  well it looks like a Boob to me.
  • Orange suit: Ace (already explained)
  • Slim suit: Flash (i know its bad.. but im in the office with little time to think something better).

Please write your name suggestions and why (if there is a reason) you choose those names!!

 

Sorry for bad english

They do have names, the ones that you just gave them, and I think that's all that needs to happen.

The more imagination required by this game or any other is better than having to define, label and explain everything.

After all, the core of 'discovery' is just that, not being spoon-fed or hand-held when exploring Astroneer, especially for the first time.

Agreed. I feel one of the best parts of the game is that it can be what each of us wants it to be. No sheep allowed!

I've named the guy in the 'fat suit' Marvin. Anyone who's seen the 2005 Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy film will understand why.

@Davers73 oohh Marvin the depressed robot!! love that character, and he really look a lot like the fat suit lool!

@Northstarranger it would be great to have the hability to name them (with a default name for the ones that dont care about), and i think that can also help with the problem of the nameless saves files, using the name of the character as something to identify the saves.

as purely a joke the 4 stooges come to mind ( as they rush around trying to find things and make comments at the same time) purely as a joke, I have great respect for them and how hard it is to do their jobs:)

if we later in the game were allowed to put a name above the figure that would be great , but to have the names thrust on us imho would be the wrong ideal.

If this were to happen I would assume it would be your gamertag/steam name.

Bleah, walls of text floating above heads. So MMORPG. So long as such a feature comes with another setting to 'hide all that junk'. Especially when its just two of us, we clearly know who is who, and don't need this giant name floating above our heads.

I like some of these, but maybe you could make your own character names. I always lose track of my saves, so this might be a useful feature.

I think he is not fat. He is She. It's girl.

Girls can be fat. And how sure are you that "Jek" isn't a unisex name?
