Tim, I like your idea just a bit, but you can't expect an Army Brat to take the side of a Navy Fan...Sorry :P

Aeronaut is possibly the best title for a pilot.
I like "Master Aeronaut", "Aeronautical Genius", and "Legendary Aeronaut" for the titles above it.

Yeah, to be honest I probably dished that one out too early. Actually, I kind of wish I hadn't used it as a title at all -- "aeronaut" is supposed to be a general term to describe everyone who crews an airship, like a sailor, not necessarily a pilot (and a middling one, at that). Oh, well.

It's definitely not too late to change them :) Just some strings in a function, no biggie.

Here's some of my suggestions for titles.   I followed the current trend and wanted to tie them to the jobs, not ranks: so as the player levels up, it shows a more prominent title for that job.   My main gripe is with the 'Junior [job], [job], Chief [job]' titles, as most seem a step down from the titles below them.  Let me know what you think.

For Pilots:
lvlCurrent|Suggestion
1Sailor|Cabin Boy
2Steerer|Steerer
3Able Sailor|Helmsman
4Helmsman|Navigator
5Skipper|Sky Jockey
6Aeronaut|Aviator
7Junior Navigator|Skipper
8Navigator|Eagle
9Chief Navigator|Aeronaut
10Sailing Master|Master
11Shipmaster|Ace



For Engineers:
lvlCurrent|Suggestion
1Swabbie|Swabbie
2Deckhand|Deckhand
3Able Engineer|Journeyman
4Greaser|Greaser
5Roustabout|Roustabout
6Airship Engineer|Technician
7Junior Technician|Machinist
8Technician|Eighthmaster
9Chief Technician|Quartermaster
10Specialist|Shipwright
11Bosun|Bosun



For Gunners:
lvlCurrent|Suggestion
1Powder Monkey|Powder Monkey
2Lookout|Lookout
3Able Gunner|Triggerman
4Canoneer|Canoneer
5Bombardier|Bombardier
6Aerial Gunner|Artillerist
7Junior Artillerist|Marksman
8Artillerist|Sharpshooter
9Chief Artillerist|Striker
10Striker|Gunslinger
11Marksman|Deadeye

Like a lot of these especially the gunner ones,

But seriously, skipper? 

Good ideas as always.

With skipper I was considering Aerialist.  I didn't want to sound repetitive and give a feeling of progression, and wasn't sure if it would conflict with Aeronaut.

"Sky Whale Tamer"

But in seriousness, I like Zeb's list for the most part. A lot of the names do feel pretty lackluster.

Thanks Zeb for compiling that list and making suggestions that make sense. I still like the title Aeronaut because it sounds like Astronaut and brings with it connotations of experimenting with untested technology in dangerous places. As for the upper echelon pilot ranks I think there should be some leadership connotations like: Wing Leader, Squadron Leader, and Sky Marshal.
