Wasteland Town Names is available for download both here and via the in-game content. Enjoy :)

Hello all!

Wasteland Town Names has been updated today to Version 3, and now provides up to 2,111 unique town names! There have been some additions but also a big part of the increase is due to simply allowing more combinations of the existing names. As usual, the grf can be found in the post above or in the fruit store. Enjoy :twisted:

Just started using wasteland and was thinking the town names were a bit cheery. This is the perfect addition. Any reason it wasn't included in the wasteland GRF? It could always be swiched off via a parameter.

Great work with the whole wasteland project. It's a great twist to the original game.

Thanks for your comments :)

The reason I didn't include this in the main GRF is simply so that it can also be used in other scenarios without requiring Wasteland itself, in case someone wants to use it that way.

I'd like to thank you for including Springfield. I'm pretty sure every town name set, regardless of its theme, should have a Springfield.

Hi all, I've made a significant increase to the amount of towns which this can generate, now up to 3,900 unique town names.

This is plenty of names to fully populate a 4096x4096 map (for anyone crazy enough to play such a thing :shock: ) Do note, however, if you play such huge maps with so many towns you will inevitably see many repeating name structures simply due to the limited number of words they are built from. However, this should only be really noticeable on a global scale (like in the town name list) and on local scales hopefully the variation will be enough to keep things somewhat unique :)

As always, it is available on BaNaNaS or in the first post of this topic. Enjoy :)
