[OTTD] UK Town Names - v1.0 [11/01/2014]

So, I was playing around generating random maps in OTTD earlier this evening - using the British Town Names GRF. I was getting frustrated as it seemed to struggle to generate any more than 800 names, so I decided to make a slightly extended version. This has some 13,700+ names, so should hopefully cover all the bases.

It is uploaded to BaNaNaS (UK Town Names) and thus available ingame or you can download it from this post.

In the future I think I want to try and give a higher priority to the names of cities and bigger towns, but works quite well as is currently.

Any questions, comments etc please shout.

Well, like I said above, British Town Names can't generate more than 800 town names or so, compared to over 13,000 in this GRF.

As for More British Town Names, I wasn't even aware it existed.

I assume technically speaking, British wouldn't include names of cities/towns etc in the Republic of Ireland.

Thank you

You do realise the Republic of Ireland seperated in the early 1921 I presume you meant Northern Ireland
