Name that race track

We're going to rename the tracks "Industrial" and "FIgure 8" to something else because they've got super boring names.

I was going to brainstorm some better ones, but I figured you guys would maybe like to take a stab at it first.

So, any name suggestions?

*Keeping in mind the setting and themes of each level

I... I kinda like Industrial, to be honest

Figure 8... hmmm... Alhatra Wastes? I'd be tempted to suggest "The Boneyard" if more of the track had those spiky metal things sticking out of the ground.

Just posting what comes to mind, will add if i get more

Industrial:
- Mashurita Canyon
- Tunnel Network
- Mining Collective
- Yuri Industrial Co. (track is sponsored by a big illegal black market company harvesting some secret sauce on that planet, has nothing to do with any particular game we know :P )

Figure 8:
- Crisscross
- Nighttrip
- Scrapyard (add more to the scene like the 'lighting rod graveyard' to make it look like an abbandoned place)
- Thunderroad (see above with more lightning)


I gotta say i too think Industrial is pretty neat, and the simple naming RC1 and 2 had were pretty neat and would fit GRIP too.

I approve Mashurita Canyon for Industrial!

For Figure 8, I don't know...The Complex? Because of all the buildings we see along the road?

I like Mashurita Canyon for Industrial too :)
For Figure 8, it looks like an abandoned place because of the completely empty concrete structures and combined with a scrapyard thanks to the black rods somewhere on the map.

Something related to "Area" and "Scrap" would fit, maybe "Abandoned testing facility", "Abandoned scrapyard", or something cliché like "Area 38"

Sahrapolis for Industrial

Sahra = desert in Arabic
Polis = city-state in ancient Greek

Figure 8 has: mountains, pointy objects, lightning, fumes, the color purple, Pipes, some kind of ( abandoned ) facility to collect oil maybe?
Industrial has: sand, mountains, rocks, tunnels, scrap metal/concrete , same kind of facility figure 8 has, barrels

Maybe this'll help :)

Didn't Chris design Industrial?
So what about "Mallinson Canyon" or "Mallinsons Ridge" :D?

Haha, I appreciate the enthusiasm about using my last name but just... no, let's not :P

My favourite so far is "Alhatra Wastes" from WFC (for Figure8)

Mahurita sounds too Japanese to me. Maybe on Orbital Prime?

Yuri Industrial is interesting. Maybe Joe could come up with an overall branding on Jahtra for that. "Yuri Industrial" runs all operations on the planet, and could have their logo on various buildings/signs

Sahrapolis sounds like a city. Maybe for another Jahtra map with more buildings. Possibly a grid of smokestacks with a big powerplant in the center

"Sahra Pipeline" to replace "Industrial" perhaps?

Oh, I like the idea of a "Branded Planet" or "Corporate Planet," so that damn near everything has the same company's logo slapped on it. Like Levittown, but on a planetary scale. That would be really cool if you could get a theme working like that.

The planetary branding would work expecially good with planets that are mainly inhabited to mine or harvest the planets natural resources. The company could have bought the rights to do this.

yeah the idea of planet-wide megacorp sounds good, i really like the idea (it would also make sense to have a racing team owned by that corp.)

Sahraopolis sounds really good and smooth and would absolutley fit to a neat big city like a trading post in the desert.

Working the "Sahra" in the name of *industrial* would really add to the feel that you are racing on a living planet, if a huge metropolis would ever make it into the game, the skybox could have parts of the city in the background, supporting the idea that the city grew on mining/trading and that *industrial* in of the major extraction grounds just outside the city bounds.

now just add a race through a space-port where huge transport ships are docked on Jahtra and you have an overall theme that breathes live into the game giving you a living planet without actually telling a story :D

"Alhatra wastes" for figure 8 sounds nice imo. So does "Sahra pipeline" for Industrial, but then I dare suggest removing a few blue barriers (the ones inside the first building before the destructible pillars tunnel always bothered me) and throw in more road blocking wild pipes instead, running along the track (only barriers makes it too convenient - which is fine in a desert for obvious reasons).

+1 for Yrch overall ideas (we have the wasteland, the pipeline, then... that city?) :D

I like "Alhatra Wastes" for Figure 8, this track always felt like it needed a new name.
As per Industrial, i actually prefer the original name, or "Yuri industrial", or even "Mallinson's Ridge" for both the thing Yrch said about a megacorp would fit the game, and a tiny tribute to Chris would be nice. But "Sahra Pipeline" sounds a bit weird imo.

Ok, right now I've got the names as "Yuri Industrial" and "Alhatra Wastes". We'll keep those for now

Thanks again for all the suggestions!
