Slogans for the promo videos
« on: September 18, 2008, 02:12:52 PM »
I'm creating a new promo video about Simutrans and I would to include some kind of slogan to relate it with Simutrans. Obviously, the slogan should be original, simple, direct, funny and related with transports. Some examples:
- EA GAMES -->  Challenge everything
- Nokia -->Connecting people
- Apple --> Everything is Easier on a Mac
- Greyhound Lines --> Leave the driving to us (I like this one)
- Air Asia --> Now everyone can fly

Suggestions are welcome. You have more ideas here.

The ones I like most until now:
- you set the course!
It could also be you set the route!

1. Your transport, your empire
I like the idea this one suggest. You build your empire through your transport networks..perhaps adding Your transport, your networks, your empire the slogan would be more complet. Sound like Your rules, your effort, your success

Simutrans:
- The digital train set.
This one is quite good, but Simutrans not only offers trains, so imho The digital transport set would be more properly.

Some new ones:
- It's transport-time!
- an empire on route...
- transport to fun!

BTW, I didn't said anything about the language. You can use the one you want, if it sounds good, who knows...

Simutrans:
- Transportation you can believe in.
- Yes you can...transport!
- Transportation first.
- Transport it your way.
- The most trusted name in transportation (a baseless claim that we believe is true).
- Where do you want to go today? (wait, does Microsoft still have that trademarked?)
- Ships, Trucks, Planes, or Trains.  Oil, Books, Trees or Grains.  Haul your freight every day.
- On a roll.

I just would like to point out something. I when said the slogan should be related with transport, it doesn't mean that the slogan must include the word transport... you can suggest it without an explicit mention... ;)

Vilvoh: "You set the route!" << I like it. Simple but the core of this amazing game, hehe. ^^
That's the strongest point of that slogan, its simplicity....

Other ones:
- Pakked...Delivery...Route!! (based in Ormac last one)

I like this one.  "Pakked" operates as an in joke while the overall statement tells what Simutrans is all about.  The goofs of the world will accuse you of making a spelling error, though. ;)

Hey feel free to play with it.

one similar to  Simutrans Pakked and Ready for Delivery

is Simutrans Pakked and Ready for You.
or
Pakked and Waiting For You.

I think these sound a little better.

and change Pakked for PAK'ed for whichever looks better as they both sound the same.

Well yes, but some explanation is possibly required =P

For those not in the know, back in the day Simutrans used to have some translation deficiencies, and an annoying bug where if a road vehicle (including citycars, which were not deletable back then) was on a bridge, you wouldn't be able to delete it. This led to the frequent and frustrating appearance of the above message. It was hard to fix, given that you had to wait for the citycars to move off the bridge of their own accord (which could take some time, and always with the risk of another one running up onto the bridge while you were waiting, this was also before the rise of roadsigns xD)

Adidas slogan is Impossible is Nothing so that wouldn't be a good choice.

Free ways for anything
I love this one!!! It suggests freedom to do whatever you want (without barriers), and furthermore,the idea of it's free..

I'm sorry for that. In czech language Toyota has slogan "Nic není nemožné" - and its free traslation is "Nothing is impossible". But if you say I love this one on my slogan "Free ways for anything", may it be. You can see also my new idea of sign for Gauthier's SNFOS - in topic MLM development (in this time it could be last reply).

Yes, we trans....port!!  :D

Actually, I previously posted "Transportation you can believe in" and "Yes you can...transport", directly inspired by Barry Obama's campaign slogan.  "Transportation First" was inspired by Johnny McCain.

"(Let's) Transport anything in our world: welcome to the Simutrans World"

Simutrans is not about a city, but about a world. You can find seas, air (planes fly there), land, and even underground land. You can find a lot of stuffs in cities and in rural areas, from skyscrapers to the farms.

Let's take over our world and play Simutrans.

Politic debates are not good at all... specially at 3am ;D

Don't blame time zones for it.  ;D x2

EDIT:

Okay, good night for everyone... I'm 13 hours ahead of my computer doing my duties for university... I need some rest. :-o

Good one! This gave me an idea.

Ok, I don't really remember that particular message (although I do remember the times when bridges and tunnels couldn't be deleted because a *** (=self-censored) city car was on/in it. And if it were just about this thread, I wouldn't have bothered to do this now, but since it's up in the forum news bar... this is not a correct German expression/word (as I believe the original message has been). "brucke" needs to be "Brücke" (or "Bruecke" if the "ü" is not available.)
