    Because I haven't seen it yet - Crystite (or something spelled similar enough to use, but not too similar for copywrite). Source - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M.U.L.E. computer game that I spent far too many years playing when I was younger...

    Did you mean 'Lethanium"?

    The game Firefall has Crystite.
    Dunno if it's copyrighted though.

    Pretty sure Tiberium is :P

    I nominate "Star Metal" as a rare sparkling alloy that only comes from unusual metallic meteorites.

    Aaaand cut! End of entries.

    Excellent. Frankly, we did not expect three pages of suggestions. Bloody good work, Nomads. We're going to let the names sink for now. Since there are not that many votes, we are probably going to vote internally and choose the winner ourselves. We'll see and let you know!

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Because it was announced late? I've only noticed this topic because I checked the blog after a steam notice a few minutes ago.

    I would have added Ambrosium, the stuff ambrosia is made out of.

    I, for one, couldn't click on the "winner" icon to vote. Perhaps others could not as well. I sent you a PM about this a few days ago, sounds like you didn't receive it?

    ...and now I can click on all of the buttons as well! Thanks to the seemingly-anonymous person who fixed that for me!

    Wazbat the fixer made the buttons clickable for everyone registered on the forum. You may cast your votes (again).

    There are very few votes. Will the name be finally chosen by the team?

    I was going to say something like Xenocerite, not because "the X makes it sound edgy", but because the "Xe" icon makes it more flashy as to the fact that you are mining the rarest building material that the game has to offer. While xeno- implies origin, ce-rite describe complex structure, perhaps even artificial engineering. But, it seems like this is over by now. I'm excited to see what it will be, and what it will be used for.

    Indeed! With the few votes we voted internally (13 people).

    Lots of great suggestions, many favorites, but also lot of "legally grey" and possibly trademarked names, so in the end we've got to love Taenite.

    The only thing being that Iron + Nickel doesn't make for the rarest material, so to avoid smart guys commenting on that in the future of Planet Nomads, we've changed the T to X. Now Xaenite makes it a truly alien, previously unknown super material.

    Congratulations to jdemacek.

    And the second "jokester" Alpha Steam key goes to talitore for Orgasmium!

    Keys have been PMed to you guys, use them well, use them for good.

    And here you are, featured in the Nomadic Journals Episode:

    Congrats to the winners, the X makes it cool alien indeed.
