This is a WIP list of (eventually) all the ships, weapons, stars, etc. in Starsector and its various mods, intended to reduce name overlaps. If you want to look up the list to make sure your names don't match those of another mod, or you can't remember which mod had the So-and-so Battleship, you've come to the right place!


Currently includes: Faction names, ships, weapons, hullmods, shipsystems, stellar objects, missions, skin designations

This documentation needs your help! If you're a modder, just jump in and add your stuff when you have the time. If you see an error, feel free to correct it. The spreadsheet is open to all.
Once it's reasonably complete, I'll plan to reissue it in .xls form with proper sorting functions.

Done

Partly done

Credit goes to MesoTroniK for coming up with the idea, and all the modders who entered details for their stuff.

All Crystanite names and information is now in there. I decided to use the full names of the weapons instead of the abbrevations i usually use. I also added the suffix "(Pirates)" when it was a Crystanite Pirates exclusive, "(Mission Only)" if it is not available in the campaign, and "(Unimplemented)" if it is currently not in-game.

On another note; nice list you got going. The names add up pretty fast.

Put in my Roider Union stuff. Should we put in planned ships/stations/etc.?

There should probably be a missions page.

Partially added some stuff in. Honestly I haven't decided on a lot of the new stuff's names/final functions yet. Sorry for being such a tease lol.

Why don't just divide namespace by prefixes and forget about "name overlaps" problem? Like:

dev.mod.ship
dev.mod.faction.ship
dev.mod.item
etc.

Take a lesson from Java packages naming conventions.

Everyone already uses prefixes for everything and sticks assets in named folders.  This is for display purposes; the user won't appreciate if there are six Medusas, all different.
