Different name for SoG
« on: April 04, 2013, 14:28 »

It would be really nice if Son of a Gun had a different name. One that didn't begin with "Son of a". It's a bit of a user-interface fail.

(Alternatively: Load the trait names from an external text file.)

I'm missing how this is a failure in user-interface.  Can you elaborate more?

I think, "Son of a Bitch" and "Son of a Gun" placed near each other may be a little confusing... Though, personally I got used to it.

Hamster has it: very similar names, right next to each other in a selection list, when picking the wrong one can destroy your intended build.

For what it's worth, I was messing around with pistols today and accidentally chose SoB when I wanted SoG. It didn't really ruin my game (just messing around), but it definitely has potential to.

In the 6-7 years that I play DoomRL I have never picked the wrong trait before (neglecting accidental ironmans as a result of pressing enter too much). I guess that, if you're messing around, you're probably just a bit too reckless. :P
But if this is really necessary, I guess Marksman could be a fine alternate name.

Or gunslinger, perhaps?

In my old days, I would make this mistake occasionally.

It's not really that bad a name. The position though the fact that it's next to Sob, maybe that's the issue.

PS : If it were me though, I 'd probably name it something like "License to Kill" reminiscent to the classic james bond action game. :)

I have never had problems with picking the wrong Son of a Trait either, but if it has to be changed 'Gunslinger' has my vote too.
