Hi, what I want to do is simple.
I'm looking for a way to single out "under attack" messags that are for explorers.
As you know, they keep getting attacked and it's stressing me out.

I'd like to:
1) Either find a way to not be shown attack messages on explorers. (which is unlikely)
2) Easier way, to make the game name my explorers to contain "explorer" word in them.


Edit: Also with freighters. Can't I name them all to "Freighter 1,2,3" etc.? Or something like that.
I really don't get why the developers felt explorers and freighters needs personality, when I once had even about 3000 freighters in a game.

You can set these in the shipNames.txt file. Just make sure you provide names for Freighters and Explorationships and you'll be fine. The AI will pull off names from the start of each list, so if you can just add a line like

ExplorationShip: Explorer 1, Explorer 2, Explorer 3, Explorer 4, Explorer 5, Explorer 6, Explorer 7, Explorer 8, Explorer 9, Explorer 10

and so on and so forth. The file isn't race specific so any race you take control of will create ships following the scheme you set there.
