Extending shipnames list
« on: November 20, 2017, 01:12:13 AM »
Some of the starting lists are rather shorts (Russia, China) and as the NPRs like to spam new ship classes (given it don't have to refit shipyards) it runs out very soon. I end up with Russian ships named Reaper or FAC-killer, that's ugly and I have to manually rename them in the end.

So two questions, if you please.

Is it possible to add mid-game a 2nd list of allowed names to a race?

Baring that, where can I find preformated ship names list? I tried to search there and there but no luck.

Inside the 'Russian' or 'Chinese' theme text file are five or six delineated lists.  Male first names, female first names, last names*, rank names, colony names, ship class names. . . possibly I'm forgetting one.

I believe Aurora has a folder called 'Themes' where it keeps all these text files.  It's eaey enough to edit the appropriate text file to include more names, and as long as you follow the existing formatting everything will work out fine.



*Russian might actually be special and contain separate male and female LAST names as well.

And where would these files be? All theme information i know of is part of the database. If you have of any script to edit them in a comfortable way I would be interested.
