Customizable Building Name Generator
Last revision: 8 Mar at 09:46 2016 UTC
New names for residential, industrial, office, and commercial buildings. Add your own names in the mods folder!
Many default names provided by reddit user /u/TPangolin
/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Colossal Order/Cities_Skylines/Addons/Mods/WufireNameGenerator/
If you have trouble finding the Library folder do the following:
Open Finder and click "Go" on the top bar. Press the Option/Alt key on your keyboard and Library will appear in that list. Then the rest of the path should be easy to find (I hope!)
(Thanks to trideceth12)
First activate the mod from the content manager, then start/load a city.
The first time the mod is loaded, the default names files are written to the mod location above.
These files will be used for name parts whenever a city is loaded.
The file format is JSON, which you can verify is correct at http://jsonlint.com/
* A name is generated by pulling a random name from a list of words.
* If multiple lists are provided, the generator will add one word from each list in order.
* If a list is marked ‘optional’, it has a 50% chance of being added.
* If adding the word will be larger than the maximum name limit (32 characters), the word is ignored.
