    PA has a bug that prevents it from displaying the Stargate's proper name; this mod fixes that. An accurate info text is also provided for the Stargate.

    This mod uses PAMM so make sure you have that set up first and then follow these steps:
    1. Download and select this mod in the mod manager.
    2. Bask in awe of the Stargate.
    (This is all in good fun and it's only purpose is to make my fellow Stargate fans smile.)

    Changelog:
    • v1.0 - First version
    • v1.1 - Now compatible with build number 72996
    • v1.2 - Update to fix PAMM download bug

    I could make a mod that would let you set custom names for all the units. Would anyone like that?

    I would love that, hopefully with UI integration.

    I think I'll try to make a unit renamer mod that would allow you to set a list of units you want renamed in the settings menu. But the coding will require some time so it will probably be a little while before it's done.

    Do it! But force the original name to be displayed next to it, so we don't get confused as the names change.

    Heh, but you would set those names yourself. So, you'd be confusing yourself? :)
    At least, that's how I understood LavaSnake's plan.

    I'm planing to retain the original description which includes the original name so that will not be an issue. ;) Good thinking though!

    Glad you guys like it!

    One other mod I was considering is a chat system embedded in the join a game screen. It would be a simple IRC room that you are automatically connected to using your PA name. KiwiIRC looks like a nice and easy way to do that. Anyway, would anyone actually find that useful (until Uber adds their own global chat of course)?

    How about a mod that shows how many players are logged in but not currently in any games? That way we would know how many players are actually available to play in a game, which in turn would dictate how large of a game to create. That sort of goes hand in hand with a global chat system. : )

    I'm not exactly sure how I could go about doing that but I'll look into it!

    So I just implement a like count in PAMM (taking the likes of the first post in the forum thread), turns out that out of all the amazing mods that have been made for this game, this mod is the most liked :p

    Actually, I found a bug in the way I was counting. The Tank Commander Mod is actually #1, although that strictly speaking is counting the wrong post for likes (this one), which makes the Favourite Colour mod #1 :)

    Current Top 10:
    1. Tank Commander (13) - maxpowerz
    2. Favourite Colour (12) - DeathByDenum
    3. Alerts Filter (12) - Raevn
    4. Chrono Click (10) - Raevn
    5. Stargate Name Bug Fix (9) - LavaSnake
    6. Economy Efficiency (9) - stan_petit_cul
    7. Eco Manager (7) - trialq
    8. Hotbuild 1 (7) - Cola_Colin
    9. Mod BatchSize (6) - Cola_Colin
    10. In Game Reminders Timer (6) - danzel
