It can right now only generate paladin, villager, troll, and ogre names. If you make your own code, you can make it able to generate any name.
IF IT DOSNT WORK, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE LATEST JAVA UPDATE.
-Can generate ogre names
-Fixed a bug i found
-Can generate villager names
Known UI Issues:
-On fedora 13, most of the ui components are too small
It needs a good knowledge of the "language" you are making the names for. If you have enough knoledge, you can make the algorithm.
OK. I'll explain more:
You may think some names are unpronouncable. If you are english, You can't pronounce this: "Gholeydooekn". But arabs and persians can. In the other hand, they can't pronounce these words: "Start", "Extracts". They pronounce them : "Estart", "Extracs".
This is because they cannot have more than two consonants after a vowell in a syllabel and less than one before them.
This can be programmed. Look at my OPS Random Name Generator in THW, Tools, Misc.
But there is another problem. In some languages, two specific consonants(or vowels) cannot come with each other. Look at this:
Persians cannot pronounce Delhi (Capital of India). They pronounce it "Dehli". Because in persian, if there is a short vowel before "L", "H" cannot come after it.
This one needs a great knowledge of a specific language to make the names correctly. I'm working on it in my program but I need more information. If you can help me with this, I'll make the unlimited algorithm.
Well, its still up to the users to use a limited or unlimited because this can change it. And yes, they have to use one in spore, because the planets is computer generated. If they didnt use one in spore, you could pretty much destroy all planets in the galaxy. But i think that each time you destroy a planet, there will come a new one. Anyway, i dont have the one they use in spore, and the algorithm i have works fine. If you want more possibillities, you can always add it to the generators.
