My Suggestion: Can we name our own ship?

I was just thinking, wouldn't it be great if we could name our own ship?

Our personal ship name does not have to be visible to others - but if we can name our own ship's name - for example my Des Moines to USS LooxGood - that would be great.  

I wouldnt mind paying 1000 doubloons or so...

what do you guys think?

I'm pretty sure this is fairly simple to do just by going into the game files and editing the names of the ships there.  I personally don't know how to do it, but whenever this idea has been suggested in the past someone usually shows up and explains how to do it.  I don't recall the process being all that complicated.

I would name a bunch of my ships using old WWI and WWII sub names since so many of them dive for the bottom so often. :Smile_veryhappy:

1000 Doubloons?  Just to rename a boat?

Whose money are you spending?  :Smile_amazed:

Nice idea but most ships would end up having one of these three names.

[redacted]

[redacted][redacted]

[redacted][redacted] of the [redacted] seas

Only if no one else could view it. 

Just thinking of the effort to police rude ship names...

There could still be issues if that player used an inappropriate name and either streamed or put replays up on YouTube or other sites.

WG has said no to even let us rename ships to a ship name of the class... Due to the fact that they want people to know what kind of ship it is.

The automatic censorship is easily beaten. KMS Hitler is one that the censor would stop but what if it was written this way, KMS H1tler the censor wouldn't stop it and that is just one example. The only way this could work is if there was human approval/refusal of the proposed name.

A username you still know what ship the player is in.

I don't trust this community to name their hamster, much less a ship whose nameplate I actually have to look at.

ok, put one extra tab in, Username, Ship, nickname, it isn't rocket scientology, if we faked a moon landing we can get three names on a screen

I will say this once again, this is how you get thousands of BoatyMcBoatfaces sailing around.

Terrible idea IMO, abused so easily.

VMF Udaloi called "dmckay's ride"

Can see the wackiness. Probably Lert will take the lead in funny ship names though, if his forum posts are anything to judge by.

For those concerned about possibility of not being able to know what ship it is, it is very simple

[Clan tag] Username Ship <Ship Name>

Though I do agree with a lot of people on one problem: the extent of abuse. It's bad enough people circumvent the username thing, we don't need people circumventing ship name protection either. As much as I want to call a ship NWS Leviathan, or NWS Tempest, or NWS Maelstrom... I so totally want to name ships... this idea still gets a no from me, despite my love of options and customizations.
