Infry's More Ship Names for Kaiserreich

Are you sick of building a fleet, only to see a mass of "Destroyer 8", "Light Cruiser 3" and "Battleship 1" populating it? Look no further, for you have come to the right place!

Following similar work for the vanilla game, I have returned with a mod offering hundreds of ship names for a variety of Kaiserreich countries that are currently lacking such:
  • Allgemeine Ostasien-Gesellschaft
  • American Union State
  • Austria
  • Combined Syndicates of America
  • Deutsch-Ostasien
  • Illyria
  • New England
  • Nationalist France
  • Pacific States of America
  • Papal State
  • Russia
  • Sardinia
  • Transamur
  • Turkey
  • United Baltic Duchy
  • United Kingdom
  • Venice
Why include minors such as Illyria and the Baltic Duchy, you ask? Simple. While they are individually not as popular as other countries, they do build small fleets which receive generic names, and upon their integration by other countries (eg. Austria and Russia) the new owners of these fleets are thus left with generically-named warships that can break their immersion.

The list includes a lot of historical names, appropriate for their individual classes, taken from the historical navies of Austria-Hungary, Imperial Russia, and Croatia, as well as fitting original names for the Baltic Duchy, offering the opportunity to build a massive fleet (relative to the country size) and even take considerable losses before the game defaults back to generic naming patterns.

Latest Changes in v0.3
  • Preliminary support for Kaiserreich v0.8!
  • Fixed Illyria's tag after it changed from ILL to CRO.
  • Added preliminary support for PSA, CSA and AUS using own ship prefixes, and standard US Navy ship names.
  • Added French navy ship names for Nationalist France.
Latest Changes in v0.3.1
  • Added ship historical American ship names for New England. Ship prefix is NES for New England Ship.
  • Expanded the CSA ship name list with original names for cruisers, battlecruisers, battleships and aircraft carriers. Ship prefix is CSS for Combined Syndicates Ship.
  • Expanded the AUS ship name list with original names for cruisers, battlecruisers, battleships and aircraft carriers. Ship prefix is USS for Union State Ship.
  • Expanded the PSA ship name list with original names for cruisers, battlecruisers, battleships and aircraft carriers. Ship prefix is PSS for Pacific States Ship.
  • American Civil War factions will now prefer using names relative to their locality in the US, before using generic American ship names.
  • Walt Disney has become a sponsor for the Pacific States Navy! What could that mean!?

This is designed specifically to work with Kaiserreich. This mod is NOT compatible with achievements!

Nevertheless, if you encounter compatibility issues, please let me know so I may resolve it ASAP! The same goes if you have requests for new country lists for the mod!

Future Plans
  • Add support for Two Sicilies, Syndicalist Italy, Scotland, Wales and Australasia.
  • Maintain functionality and update for coming patches.
  • Add support for countries that have no names at all! Please point them out to me!

It should be, yes. Man the Guns might change things a little, but I'll be making sure to adapt to the best of my ability.

is this still compatible?

I have posted an update for Kaiserreich v0.8! This mod's v0.3 includes preliminary support for the ACW factions and Nationalist France, as well as fixes the issue with ship names for Illyria after its tag changed from ILL to CRO. ACW ship names will be expanded in v0.4 :steamhappy:

If you refer to the new page for the Kaiserreich mod, I updated. It shouldn't be much of a problem either way though, the mod can technically work with any other mod as long as they share tags; it's that it's designed for Kaiserreich in particular, from a lore POV.

@Imperator Coolo I plan to keep the mod very much alive despite having gone through a very busy summer. What sort of work would be required for 0.8, besides possible new names?
Imperator Coolo Oct 10 @ 5:08pm 
any possibility of an update being released for 0.8? (not that the US will need to have more ship names)

can you add norwegian names?

@Fire Marshall Bill ACW countries are planned for the next update. Things have stalled due to work, unfortunately, but I'll get to it when possible.
