I like KoM, now I've actually got my ship named I'm wondering if it's a good idea to mix em up!

I liked the

MNV - Mobius Naval Vessel
MSV - Mobius Space/Star Vessel

and added
MTV - Mobius Trading Vessel
to it..


So now I have:

  • an Anaconda (fighting config) with the prefix: MNV
  • a Cutter (trading config) with the prefix: MTV
  • another Anaconda (exploration) with the prefix: MSV

because I like the KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) principle, I use a starting M for MOBIUS ;)
and yes... I don't distinguishes between the several private groups, the player factions or whatever, because I see it as one MOBIUS


..the only question left now for me is.. What to do with the ship ID :P
Any ideas?

Too many proposals and ideas​, so I just skipped putting any prefix on mine for now. Also the ID is too short IMHO.

Another idea: since the Ship ID is 6 characters, how about we have it as MOBIUS and then name the ship without a prefix?

We should get a poll or something there are some pretty good ideas here.

Since a ship's id is more unique than a ship's name, I was thinking about this

<prefix> + <1st & 2nd character of the CMDR> + < #number 0-9 >

that should give anyone a way to ID a ship

In my case

MNVCY1 for my battle Anaconda
(or should I start with a 0 ?)
and
MSVCY1 for my exploration Anaconda


Not sure if we need a poll..
..then again it would be fun if we all agree on some sort of standard within MOBIUS, because.. it would look good :)

I'm sticking with OMS, with dash prefix for role, if I want to. Eg OMS-C or OMS-E

In my opinion, the Ship ID is too small to have a prefix. It would only make sense to identify the commander.
The prefix should go on the ship name.

Me preference would be:

Ship name: OMS-Stormbringer
Ship ID: PAR-01

If someone wants to differentiate combat exploration etc (I don't) could be something like OMS-Stormbringer-C or -E or -M

But if the decision is for another prefix no problem...

I've gone through the thread, and counted up each person's preference.

It appears that OMS is slightly in the lead, with the OME/OMC/OMF/OMM system coming a close second.

As RD-83 and Pargy proposed above, OMS with an optional -E, -C, -F or -M would be a good compromise between the two most popular choices. In other words, pick one of these:

OMS
OMS-E
OMS-C
OMS-F
OMS-M

Is this something that most of would be reasonably happy with?
