The Pirates of Subnautica: A Guide to Calling Things by the Wrong Names

When I had just gotten used to calling things "Scrap Metal" and "Airsacks" and "Spore Sacks" (what is it with the devs and sacks?), they decided to change everything. Now, with confusing "Metal Salvage", "Bladderfish", and "Gel Sacks", I began to mentally change the new names to the old ones.
And then I watched The Pirates of the Carribean... and considering I was calling everything by the wrong names anyways, things kind of went downhill.

  • Primary Seabase = Tortuga
  • The Aurora = The Black Pearl
  • Safe Shallows = Port Royal
  • Floating Island = Isla de Muerta
  • Blood Kelp Zone = World's End / Farthest Gate
  • Lost River = Davy Jones' Locker

  • Cave Crawlers = Pirates
  • Gasopods = Redcoats
  • Crash Fish = Cannonballs
  • Reaper Leviathan = Barbossa

  • Titanium = Iron
  • Gold/Diamonds/Lithium = Treasure
  • Water = Rum

  • Fabricator = Forge
  • Knife = Sword
  • Stasis Rifle = Musket
  • Propulsion Cannon = Regular Cannon

  • Alterra = Spaniards
  • Degasi Survivors = Aztecs
  • Degasi Bases = Buried Treasure
  • Warpers = Mermaids
  • Disease Research Facility = The Flying Dutchman
  • Seadragons = Krakens
  • Lava Zone = The Kraken's Prison

    Alterra = Rotten European Invaders!
    Actually I just realised... That picture looks like the Tomb of Sargeras from WoW...
    I am currently writing a fantasy novel which I plan to be the beginning of a six-seven book series.
    To sate my thirst for people to read my stories, however, I write one on the forums in the meantime: FE . DC .
