Here is my first attempt at NML code, and also my first town names set. After looking at MinchinWeb's Random Town Name Generator, I was inspired to make my own. The code of the Australian Town Name Generator is heavily based off MinchinWeb's code, but I have modified it quite heavily, in order to acommodate Aboriginal style names. I re-used many of the English names, prefixes and suffixes, while removing the Canadian influences such as "Medicine Hat" , animals like "elk, moose", etc, and various Native American names.
Of course, it's not finished yet, but mainly because I haven't cleaned up the code, and there may still be a few Alberta town names still sneaking around. (not counting the ones that are generic enough to be plausible in Australia) So please let me know if there's a weird name generated, or anything that doesn't seem like it belongs in Australia

So, will this also include some actual Aussie place names (not large cities per say, for some reason my GCSE IT Project flooded back into my mind and the town of Toowoomba was the first thing that popped in my head when I read this thread title) as well as the generic-but-Aussie sounding names?
Do you have many pines in Australia? (line 2762)
Yes, there are already quite a few in there, and some real place names may be randomly generated, even!SquireJames wrote:So, will this also include some actual Aussie place names
Either mainly in plantations, or not the kind you're used to But just because it's not native (or even exists here) doesn't mean a place can't be called that. For example, there's an Oak Flats near where I live, and not a (true) oak in sight. (although the have been introduced)MinchinWeb wrote:Do you have many pines in Australia?
