  1. Update for 1.04 is up on curse! Support has been added for female name generation.
  2. Hey guys! Support for female Kerbal names is currently being implemented! I'll post again when it's ready to go!
  3. Names with spaces have been implemented, but you will need to download the newest version. To use spaces in a name just put double quotes around the entry is follows: lastNames = Kerman "the Amazing" AnotherName This will produce 3 last names: Kerman, the Amazing, and AnotherName. The only character that should cause trouble the double quote. File weight is a relative value, it is the likelihood of a given config being used to generate a name. If you have three files with weights 100, 100, and 300, they will have a 20%, 20%, and 60% chance respectively. The weight does not change the order that names are generated, and a file cannot be used up. As it stands, clone counts seem a bit out of the scope of this add-on, if you went through all the names in a file, there would be no way to generate a new name, which could prove problematic, especially for a smaller config file.
  4. You can tie last names and first names together by having multiple config files. KPseudonym { fileWeight = 200 properNameChance = 100 lastNames = *Donator* properNames = Adam Al Alan } KPseudonym { fileWeight = 100 properNameChance = 100 lastNames = *Follower* properNames = Bar Bart Bil Billy-Bob Bob } Just put those in Donators.cfg and Followers.cfg respectively and you'll have a 66% chance of getting a donator Kerbal and a 33% chance of getting a follower Kerbal (assuming you set Default.cfg's weight to 0). Values from different KPseudonym nodes will never be used together. So this setup would never generate "Adam *Follower*" as a name. And as long as you put all the names on one line, there is no hard limit on the length of any name category. On the topic of repetitive names, I can look into it, I noticed last name repetition once or twice. Unfortunately, even with a decent selection of names, random generation will produce duplicates and runs from time to time. If this is a significant problem I can probably alter the generator to favor names that aren't already in the game.
  5. Allows you to customize Kerbal name generation, just like you always dreamed of! Add or remove random name prefixes, suffixes, and surnames or completely change the parameters of name generation. Comes with a config file that simulates default name generation and can also be used as a template for your own name config. Names are generated only once, so preexisting Kerbals will not be renamed. KPseudonym will not rename Bill, Bob, Jeb, or Valentina. Config file changes for 1.04 The latest version supports male and female name generation, config files for earlier versions won't work without being updated. The following values were removed: properNames, randomPrefixes, randomRoots, randomSuffixes The following values were added: fProper, fPrefixes, fRoots, and fSuffixes for females, and mProper, mPrefixes, mRoots, and mSuffixes for males. Make sure your config files contain both male and female names or it might not behave as expected. Glorious download zone! Download from curse!
