Homeworld2 is here, and with it, our new mod is here also. You've been given snippets about it for a while now, sketches, some basic models, ideas and stories to indicate the basic plot of the new mod. The HW2 mod (which is still unnamed), is not B5 related, it is not set in the B5 universe nor does it have any affiliation with any of our previous mods, it is a standalone product. As such, I am unsure as to whether we should keep our Dark Age name, or whether we should simply remain with the name for the single mod.

As an example, if the mod were called 'Rimworlds', would it be better as 'Dark Age : Rimworlds', or just remain the name itself? There are advantages and disadvantages to changing the name, Dark Age has become synonymous with our work, and so with us as a team, people will recognise it as ours and if they liked our previous work they may be inclined to try it out. This also works on the flipside however, someone who hated all our B5 mods may not even give the new one a try.

Please note that this is just an option to be discussed, I've not talked to the rest of the team in great depth about it yet so this is by no means a final vote. But I would be very much interested in hearing your opinions, do you think we should keep the name, or do you think this should be entirely standalone?

im gonna have to go ahead and say that its best to stay with Dark Age: Rimworlds, firstly i think it has a sort of ring to it, as well it will get ur already established name out there.

Hmmm... It's not up to me, but if you want to keep the Dark Age name brand -so to speak- it could be carried on as the informal name of the modders who worked on the DA projects, and anyone else who works on a Dark Age series.

For your new mod, I'd have to look around to see if there is any background information.. Then I'll bestow upon you my wonderful pearls of worthless suggestion.

You could do as some movie trailers do: "From the producers of Dark Age, and the director of Dark Age 2, Rimworld!"

Throwing in me two pennies

Dark Age: Crusades
The Rimworld Purge

I read the snippet on the website for setting the game is. Thought ur storyline might go down the line of a crusade type war. Of course if it doesnt then that title becomes null and void [img]tongue.gif[/img]

My only problem with that then is it sounds quite cliched and a bit corny, as the whole 'Dark Age' name does now too, this is why I put the poll up.

Still, the majority seem in favour of keeping it by quite a large margin. I don't know if SV and berserk have voted, but I havent.

I reckon keep the darkage there just so that people know that you guys did the mod.If you dont want the "Darkage" in there then that is fine aswell. [img]smile.gif[/img]

ditch the dark age, why not have a group name and say dark age and your fourthcoming mod is made by *enter team name* then like someone said above, you can put from the makes of dark age.
