PaulC's new town names

Post by PaulC » 06 Nov 2007 20:03

I was in the mood for a new town names grf, so here it is. :) The grf includes 240 real place names from South Africa, which should make a change from the standard Latin American ones you get in tropical climate.

I felt inspired to create another set; this time it's Alaskan town names for the arctic climate. Enjoy!

Do these sets generate African/Alaskan-like town names, or do they just use real town names?

I always use real town names. It's easier, and always going to be more authentic.

My only objection is the last name: "Yp", It sounds horrible when you pronounce it. :mrgreen:
Thanks Michael.

Does the South African GRF also include the increased crime rate?
I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

It's been a while for this old topic of mine, but I've got another grf to share. 372 real place names from South Korea, excluding all the major cities.

This grf uses the following characters:

Č č Š š Ž ž

so for town names to display properly you'll need to use an additional grf such as unifont; OTTD users should be fine with OpenGFX, and other font replacements may work as well but I'm not sure.

Due to a (strange) conflict between this GRF and another (identically named) uploaded at BaNaNaS, I took the freedom to rename yours to include your name (PaulC) at the end. I hope you forgive me the rudeness of doing this without asking you first, but it was causing some major issues throughout our system :) I also do apologize that it was possible in the first place.
