Yeah, Smokin' Guns sounds like a good name. Smokin' Guns by the Smokin' Guns Team? I also like Western Steel.

Western Steel: Smokin' Guns

A name with a subtitle for the 1.0 SA...
Then the 2.0 SA in the future could have another subtitle :D

"Western Shootout" or "Western Warriors" sounds good to me :!:

...I liked the names without "western" the most so far. Grab Iron or Smokin' Guns sound both great, Western Shoot-Out is a bit dull i think.

subtitle

Postby ChainLightnin' » Thu May 31, 2007 6:27 pm

Just looking at some of my other xbox and pc game titles, and many of them, like all the 'Starwars' and 'Age of Empires' use the subtitles, like 'The War Chiefs', which is what you eventually call that game. And 'Smokin' Guns' sure is cool! Maybe the previous input about a main and subtitle gives you more options.? :)

Smokin' Guns was a fast idea, but the more I think of it, the better it gets...

I like the sound of it as well. But I wonder if giving wq3 the same name as the current dev team might show some disrespect to the original team, Iron Claw Interactive?

I think that is fair and honorable of you. I don't know the history of ICI's hand-off to you, so I can't really speak to how appropriate/necessary that respect issue is.

Having said that, googling "iron claw interactive" and variants shows nothing but about a dozen hits all related to this mod, and all old. You already have the video introduction when you run the game, and the logo on the initial main menu page, and in the credits. That seems like an awful lot of props for a defunct group.

Besides, you could stop thinking of Smokin' Guns as naming the game after the development team. Start thinking of the development team's name as just reflecting the developers of the Smokin' Guns game. Then Smokin' Guns development team is the obvious name for your group.

Otherwise, how about Grab Smokin' Iron Guns of the Western Warriors in a Showdown; with Steel!

it's late and I'm still jet-lagged : )

That last suggestion, Chainsaw, sounds like one of those Lone Wolf & Cub original titles. :lol:

I am all with Chainsaw here: Smokin' Guns plus minus some fancy subtitle is it! And I don't think that anybody from ICI would mind very much. In fact I guess they don't really give a damn. We can always ask Spoon about his feelings. I am pretty sure that he'll give us an "ok" if he bothers to answer at all. Let's face it: every time we ask something, Spoon & the rest of ICI answered "do as you see fit".

Its not like we do not appreciate the work from the original team or try to "steal" anything from them. Quite the opposite actually! We are working hard to keep their legacy alive. This what this is all about, right? The best thing we can do is keep this mod up and running. Whether it is called "Western XYZ" or "Steers and Queers" (Reds favourite :lol:) or "smokin' guns western apocalypse" doesn't matter that much ;) ... as long as the name catches the eye of new players ...

So lets go for something with "Smokin' Guns" I say.

And, if possible, lets just keep the goddam file pre-fixes! I am not really looking forward to rename everything :|
SG name: =SG= BRELI
