More starnames.
« on: October 23, 2010, 10:15:32 PM »
Well, if you are tired of the same old starnames every game, you can try this systemnames.txt. I ripped it from my mod for Sword of the stars, this add thousands of names (well, i'm not the one who compiled them in the first place though). Just replace the one in your game data dir.

edit : 12751 names.

Does it pick them at random when you start a new game or not? Just curious, I've noticed the same names a couple times in the stock game and thought it was just me.

It pick them at random; the larger the list, the more random it gets.

The more the merrier. Is it me or have some mods/improvements just gotten buried?

Very nice, Foraven.  Will you be releasing a Star Ruler version of your FRB mod as well?

I'm still learning how this game is played, but i guess it won't be too long before i start messing with it  ;D. This game isn't too bad balance wise, i may just do a few tweaks here and there (already did the build queue).

There was more than thousand names in SoTS? I thought that there was far more less something like 500 name. What other games did you get the names except the games you mentioned from? I ask because the number of names you collected is really huge.

Technically speaking, his FRB mod uses the star names pRev added to SotS.
