Default What's in a name?
It has been suggested that the name Pu-239 is simply stupid and it should still be U-232. I disagree and I'll tell you why.

If the name remained the same, I would have to specify that this "darkalchemy's U-232 V4" and should not be confused with "Bigjoos U-232 V4". I think that is nonsense.

The whole point of forking/creating a new project and giving it a new name is to make it easily identifiable.

Now for the name, they are similar enough, in meaning, to be family.
  • U-232 == Uranium 232
  • Pu-239 == Plutonium 239

I do not claim responsibility for anything other than the changes that are in the git repo. Each and every change, from the point I forked U-232 V4 until now, is there in the list of commits.

I even include a changelog, in the install folder. It's gives a general idea(same as git comment) of what changes each commit represented. This is, by no means, a comprehensive list of changes. Sorry, I am just not that detailed.

I hope that I have explained this well enough.

Name suites it, I've seen you've been busy on it. I can see a lot of effort has went in to it and code looks very tidy indeed. Can imagine that's just the beginning and you'll have plenty other improvements and idea's up your sleeve. Best of luck with it, I'm sure it will be very successful, V4 was my favourite for a good while if I'm honest. Anyhow I just posted to say well done and I wish you all the best with it =]

I see no issue with it at all....you are 100% correct. That is the point of forking, u-232 is open source and you did give credits to original u-232 devs in your read-me.

Keep up the good work

Psh, whoever thinks the name is stupid, can feel free to not use it. I for one, like the name.
