    [New Extension] Random Names Generator

    Hi, guys.

    This is just a small extension I was building since I needed it in one of my projects so I thought I'd share with you. Basically what this extension does is generate random names for character creating.

    Imagine for instance that you're designing an RPG game that will sugest random names to the user as long as the user hits a button. You can generate first names for male and female human and surnames.

    It may be something silly but right now this offers you:

    100000+ Random names divides by category


    Projects that could benefit from this:

    - RPG Games that allows the user to create a custom character from scratch.

    - Pen & Paper RPG tools for designing characters.

    - Tycoon games : like in Rollercoaster Tycoon that you have thousands of guests in the park and everyone of them has a name.


    So it was useful to me, it may be useful to you.

    PS: you can create elf and orc names too although not so much variety as human names. There is an example in the example's folder. Please try and let me know what you think.

    Download link will be in the next post.

    Thanks.

    Re: [New Extension] Random Names Generator

    Very nice. It's good for writers who want character names, too.

    Saves some steps and is rather fast in generating the names. I always like extensions that do something quickly for you. Plus, the extension and .dll are rather compact considering the number of potential names generated.

    So, for some, this may seem silly because you can create lists and grab random lines. For others, it is just a simple one object way to get your results.

    I'd suggest alien names, but that can get so strange, convoluted, and hyphenated that imagination is probably a better way to go, but you never know if you had some good formulas for creating them: Drixell Ortell Gor-ehu'tam? Shindora Blasteem V'i? Plus, it kind of hinges on what kind of flavor of Universe you are in

    Thanks for sharing this, byo! I appreciate it.

    You could easily do this yourself, but heck, I like this extension!

    But it appears that the extension needs external files in HWA. That should probably be fixed.

    Thanks for the comments.

    And I agree. This could be done with a list object or other technique and I've tried it before while working in a project. But 100000 lines was a little much for the objects to handle and I tried to make it fast so you could create characters and names list very quickly.

    I know it's silly.

    Novabrain: Indeed, I was thinking of adding some different types of names.

    Thanks.

    Glad we are on the same wavelength.

    I tried generating a lot of names and I must say the randomness is excellent and the names, (say, first+last) are good in diverse ways.

    Novabrain: Thank you. Exactly what I wanted to do.

    MechaBowser The HWA version has its own runtime folder. You need to copy namegen.mfx and mfxNameGen.dll to the Data\Runtime\HWA folder.
