Where does the game generate names from?
« on: 2017 October 28, 14:38:41 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Is there a way to export the list of weird and wonderful Maxian names from somewhere? This replacement mod led me to try poking around in C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection\Fun with Pets\SP9\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins, but opening the .bundle file in SimPE didn't leave me any wiser...

The reason I want to find the names is so that I can put them into a randomiser and rename a few townies that all recently generated as either Alec or Brittany. I have about 5 of each and it's boring! I specifically want to re-christen them as something uniquely Maxian, so using an online name randomiser is out.

Townie names are stored as text lists in Live.package, located in the TSData\Res\Text folder of your most recent expansion.

Aha! Thank you. Your honourary name shall be Mayhew Knight, as decreed by my new randomiser. Gratefully, Sheila Tse.

ETA: I have attached it in case there are other fans of Maxis names.
