PaulC's New Town Names
This is the all-new release thread for my various town name projects. I have a few older grfs which I hope to eventually update and post here, but for now they can still be found in the old development thread
and I'm mostly going to focus on some new stuff.
All town name sets will use real place names and some will be quite modest in size - no fancy random name generators that give you a billion different combinations! Expect a few quirky and unusual sets with some tongue-twisting town names, some grf's you never knew you needed and possibly some you don't... ContentsAustrian Town Names v1.0

As of 2017, any new releases will be for OpenTTD only. Older town name grfs should work just fine in either OpenTTD or TTDPatch, but see also this next bit...Font characters
All font characters used in these grfs are included in OpenTTD since 1.2.0 or r23582, and in OpenGFX since 0.4.0. If you're using older versions of these then a few characters will be missing in some grfs. If you're using any other fonts besides those in the base set then you're on your own.
There is currently no support for the extra font characters in TTDPatch, but if anyone needs it then let me know and I'll code something. Or you can try OpenGFX 0.4 for TTDPatch
Translations will be most welcome if anyone feels like doing them, and I'll post the english.lng file with each grf just in case. There's not much to translate, just the grf description and the menu name really.Licence
Unless stated otherwise, all grfs posted in this topic are licensed GPL v2 (if released 2017 or later) or CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 (if posted 2012 or earlier).Problems, feedback, suggestions, general comments?
Post 'em in this topic.
