This mod is all about the possible names crew members can have. In vanilla FTL, there's a pretty limited amount of names, and after a while, you've seen every name in there. In some of the big overhauls, the amount of possible names seems like a lot, and there are, but I figured... why not more? why not every name you can think of? And thus, this mod was born...
Just how many names are in here?
It's currently sitting at around 5580 names in total. yep, you read that right. I found names from a bunch of overhauls, the Definitive Names Diversity Mod, the Kickstarter credits, and sprinkled in a bunch of my own, ending up with that many names... but surely there must be more!
note that between male and female humans, there is no difference, unlike in vanilla. why is this mod like that? well, why must names be gender-specific? you can legally change your name to anything you want (probably so long as it isn't offensive), so why limit it like that?

Code: Select all
- fixed bug where only female humans show up in hangar roll by adding zero-width space to all female human names
- removed an inappropriate name
- initial release
the way I added all those names is through a program I made to join all nameLists in a file (by gender or regardless) and sort the resulting list(s) alphabetically. and so, now you can easily look through the list if you look at the file, it's like a dictionary: you can easily find whatever name you're looking for and just as easily remove or insert names.
for those interested, the program's here on GitHub: https://github.com/blizzarchon/FTL-Join ... -nameLists
if you wanna be in the mod, give me a holler, or if you're already in the mod and don't wanna be, give me a holler as well.
if you have any other names you wanna see, shout 'em out and I'll add them.
I created a different program to change the Kickstarter credits into a names.xml-type file, code here on github, https://github.com/blizzarchon/FTL-name ... -names.xml
