Name KSP's currency (or at least suggest it)!


Recommended Posts

Kilos?

Ooo, I like this. Grams would be even better, punchier.

Reminds me. Tell an American you lost 15 pounds and they'll congratulate you. Tell it to an Englishman, and they'll have the opposite reaction...

However, I prefer the simple approach of just calling it funds.

Any word used needs to be immediately recognized the world over (when translated of course) to be a currency.

So things like coin, cash, currency, money...

but you could come up with a unique name if you used such a descriptor in the UI:

Money earned: 835478 RDT

Profit: 324778 Jools

This would identify the new word as a monetary unit.

My suggestion would be Jools. Adding K to everything seems somehow less creative and we already have enough with k.

I'm not a fan of adding "k" to every word (for the most part it's slightly annoying), but I'd like to see "keso" or "kinero" (as a twist on peso and dinero, no explanation needed). Also, "kekel" is too funny to be ignored.

I saw a Red Dwarf reference so I'll try one I haven't seen, how about quatloos or kwatloos?

I personally think kredits is pretty obvious since it's such a sci-fi standard but with a nice Kerbal take to it (adding "K" to every word).

It may have been suggested already, but Krash or Krash would be a fine name for a currency - how many rockets will actually make it?

A more serious name would be Kerbols.

Thing about the name is that the unofficial name for the kerbal sun is Kerbol.
