Recommended Posts

As the title said, in this thread i would start a cooperation with the community to find good name for the continent of Kerbin

Here's to you a map (made by ZeroIgnite):

We'll call it the Trench of Happiness, I suppose.

Slightly more on topic:

Well, it's a supercontinent, so why not call it Kangia?

(That is, if my brain is correct in telling me that "pangia" was the name of Earth's supercontinent before it broke up into how we know it today.)

it's a known easter egg, as for naming the continents, unless you can get everyone who plays to agree, or the devs endorse it and make it official, it only benefits the person who does it. I have names for the various places on my kerbal map and certainly don't care what anyone else calls them :P heck, I'm building a long distance rover to start planting flags now XD

I named five continents: Asac, Arunall, Etron, Etnenitnoc, and Alusninep Al

which are all reverse spanish for: Home (as in the home continent where Kerbal Civilization began), Plain (the great plain), North (the northernmost continent), Continent (as in "the big continent"), and The Peninsula (self-explanatory).

I didn't name the poles, but I figure they'd be reverse spanish for "north pole" and "south pole" respectively.

I say that the part with ksc on it that looks like Africa should be a separate continent called kafrica

Awesome link with the language of Kerbal!

There was a thread like this before. It became roleplaying, and it didn't went well.

Um...what?

Nova gets irked by people who would just stick K to the start of everything (kolar system, kun, kercury, kenus, kearth, kars) to make it sound kerbalized. It's called The "K" Syndrome and most of the people who has been here for a while will find it really annoying for being too bland and repetitive.

EDIT: Ninja'd, but expounding the main point raised.

Why?

*hides from nova*

Because it's kinda dumb. before you call me out for being a tad agressive, just think about it. K in EVERY word? really?

But with kerplow and kafrica if you want to get all technical-like I'm ADDING letters, not replacing them...

Or AfriKa, simply.

A first step would be to define what is a continent IMHO. On Earth, we have divided landmasses that are physically linked. Like "North America", "South America". The boundary between "Europe" and "Asia" is quite arbitrary (the Ural mountains). Arabia makes the "joint" between those two previous and Africa. The most obviouses are Australia and Antartica, as they are clearly island-continents.

We need to know more about Kerbin's plates tectonics I think. :huh:

On Earth we had a Pangea when all the plates where shrinked together at the same spot.

Have the Devs ever said why the main Kerbal continent looks like Africa? I always wondered that...

I think that it was autogenerated...

Not sure about this, but I think the general shapes and stuff were all hand made. I think pretty much nothing was generated randomly, besides hills and such.
