lk-ylotop_leefish-object or lk-yellowtop_leefish-object (the abbreviation is for when the name is long)
I think Kiri does it like this:
another thing, if it's not obvious which are recolors with these systems, you can stick RC in there somewhere.
or would they be combined somehow? I'm not sure I understand the decal bit I thought that was just another recolour of the top?
So. IDK what your object is, but let's pretend it's a table. I'd give the table itself a name to distinguish it from other tables. Let's call it the DinnerHolder. I always put the creator name first, so your table would go something like this....
This way when you sort in your file explorer, all the tops will be together and all the frames will be together, and the mesh will be fairly easy to spot. Then if I were to make recolours of your table, I would put my name first and then yours, like so....
so for example my sign when it finally goes up will be named
deco is the category, sign is the sub-category, MASOfficeSign is the Meshname, Next comes the subset, finally the description.
If I was recolouring other people's things, I'd stick my id just before the description.
Also - I tend to rename meshes to match the criteria. I'm actually more interested in having the meshes and recolours sitting together than I am knowing who's made them.
I like having the subsets grouped together, and I folderise my meshes and recolours based on the category/sub-category/Mesh (I stick a -R on the Mesh Folder if they are repository)
But I've changed my naming system many times, and I think whatever works for you currently, is the way to go.

That way everything is together in the folder.
If the name starts to be ridiculously long - then I abrv. like so: leefish_DHtable_fr-pinkpslyREC-CGT.package
and, I change all the filenames to match - not just the long one.
