I'm sure i'm not the only person who's thought of this but shouldn't we give the city a more suitable name? DMI, The Dynamic Project, and Dynamic Map Idea are good project names but they aren't very good city names. Any ideas?

General_Nate city... :lol:

Hmm, I like Lustburg. I've always wanted to make a city called that.

I'm pretty sure Burg means Castle in German, so Lust Castle? :funny2:
I hope this isn't considered a forum game..
I really can't think of anything, GameToast City? :P

I personally think it's maybe best to stick to DMI-city, since that's what it is. (with the exception of a good name that also describes the city's main goal the best).
The name DMI makes sure that it stays clear that everyone contributed to this map, giving it a name would cloud that clarity.

Ok, well, here are a few.

Da, Magnificent-Ing (DMI) :lol:

Or uh,

The Double Massive Ion-city

Uh, hmm. How about:

The Dynamic Mega Institution

I know these aren't very good, but someone might like them.

I don't think it needs a name beyond DMI City or perhaps Gametoast City.

@G_N - Ehhh.. no.


:wink:


The project will probably remain as DMI and such, but if anyone has a catchy, artistic, and original name for the city that we all agree on, it'd be nicer to call it that rather than a TLA (three letter acronym). I was thinking Avaria for some reason. If no one agrees on one we can just stick to DMI.

Avaria? That sounds very nice.

If you are an old movie buff, we can name it the same as they named the city in Paint Your Wagon.

"No Name City"

Avaria.... I like it. Jawapolis... That's good too.
But I think the name should start with an 'A'.

Here are a few:

Alagaësia (al-uh-GAY-zee-uh) (You get a cookie if you can tell me what that is from.)

Albtorix (all-bu-TOR-ix)

Azurda (azz-UR-da)

What do you think?

I don't see why there needs to be a name. Rather than going through a list of silly names (Jawapolis? Really?), can it just not have a name at all? It's not like there's a different city to confuse it with in the map. It can just be "the city" as it has been.

Maybe we should start a poll, and see what other people think. And if we are to do a name, we start another poll and the winning name, well, wins.

Maybe Rep can make his decision, rather than having a poll make it for him, since it's his project.

I like that name a lot, seems to fit the city pretty well. DMI is fine too but I would rather have a name.

@General Nate: I don't think we want something from the Inheritance books :wink:

Yeah, these are all good names, but Rep has the final decision.
