# 1 2 Ships Same Name
02-12-2010, 09:50 PM
Anyone know why I can't have 2 ships with the same name? I put an A after the NCC number but for whatever reason the name I put in won't stay. Is this a bug or working as intended?

ya I wanted to name my new ship the same as my TOS connie but I cannot do it, or at least it doesn't stay when I click OK. No error message or nothing it just doesn't stick.

You cannot have 2 ships with the same name. Registration numbers do not count.

Alter the name of the previous ship, then you can put the old name on your new ship.

That's how it goes.

Working as intended.

This question was asked in beta and a dev replied. If I remember correctly, the name of the ship is used in character data storage, so only one ship of the same name per character.

You can, however, rename your old ship to a new name and then give that name to the new one.

Funny thing is someone else can have the same name as your ship, but you cannot.

Scrapyard old, lesser ship. Unveil new shiny powerhouse with desirable moniker.

I dislike the fact that "other" players can have the same ship name. That sort of ruins the immersion factor for some I would wager, but I'll deal with it.

Without that ability, we'd wind up with lot more "bad "ship names, from misspellings to random button mashing to just frustrated people taking names they wouldn't otherwise take.

Especially when you factor in how many ships each character can have and that we are all on one server...

So, I'd say, overall, it probably helps immersion more than it hurts it.
