Skaarj Space Fighter vs Skaarj Spacefighter

What should the name of this page be? In game, it says Skaarj Spacefighter when you get in, but other references have a space or capitalize fighter without having a space. The same applies to the human variety. — Haarg 21:16, 24 February 2008 (EST)

The UT2004 manual actually uses both: "Spacefighter" for the description and "Space Fighter" for the controls section. With this in mind, I don't really think it matters much which we use (as Epic themselves don't quite know either), and sticking to "Space Fighter" would save quite a bit of work. Speaking of the manual: I see that the vehicle's description in it is 2-3 times longer than the one om the article (which is take from the UT2004 website). Should I add the rest of the description and change the source? --Kaithofis 22:15, 24 February 2008 (EST)
Copying it from the game manual sounds like a good idea. For the name, given that there isn't any consistency, I'll go with the current title, and adjust links to point to it. — Haarg 00:12, 25 February 2008 (EST)
Although I personally wish they weren't, Epic is inconsistent somewhat... uhm, consistently. "Alternate fire" is sometimes called "secondary fire" I think, "taridum" sometimes gets a capital T, and you'll find lots of other examples if you try to use exactly the right spelling but notice that sometimes you really can't. I suppose if games like UT don't really need story lines, spelling consistency is even less important for them. :) Retodon8 21:15, 25 February 2008 (EST)
