I don't know if this is the appropriate forum, but I've made a town names NewGRF that I would like to share, in the hope that others might find it interesting. The NML code as well as a compiled grf is attached. I'd like some help with code review and maybe to upload it on bananas. I'd like to license it as CC-BY-SA, but I'm uncertain of where to put the license info, or what.

The names are randomly generated from a list of ca. 240 prefixes and ca. 70 suffixes, which gives a product of about 16,800 combinations. Most of the terms are common Norwegian words found in place names, as well as a few made-up parts. Of the latter, a few are intended as a tribute to the original TTD naming style, such as "Piltinghatten" which is my personal favourite.

I've used this grf for several months, and have trimmed it quite a bit. For instance, I've deleted name parts resulting in eg. triple consonants, or other grammatically awkward combinations.

It could also have been placed in the Graphics Releases subforum, but here is also fine.

Just include a license.txt containing the license text in your .tar archive.

Thank you, Transportman. I found a plaintext version of the CC-BY-SA license which is now included in the archive. I also added a note about the license in the NML file.
