Native American names break immersion? Argonian names in a TES game break immersion? It's just a matter of sanitizing them with a random generator of verbs an nouns.

yes, Laps-Up-Cum and Spreads-The-Cheeks do indeed break immersion

Dude did you even read my posts or are you just trolling?

Currently if you click random name as lizard you get a name like Outmeel-Grul. I'm saying that if manuel indeed goes for the forced random name thing to tackle bad names in general, it would be neat if the generator used a noun-the-verb format for lizards instead of those names which are more often associated with ashwalkers. Do you think that a random generator would randomly generate names like Drinks-the-Pee or shit like that?

Verbs-the-Noun names got stale a while ago and seeing them immediately makes me groan at the stale joke that is le epic Lusty Argonian Maid name format. It's really just a personal pet peeve I guess. I don't think letting the name generator assemble randomised variations of the format would make very immersive names.

So I went ahead and made a quick-and-dirty lizard name generator, yeah some names are a bit weird but others are miles better than what we see now

I'd PR it but I don't know how to make ashwalkers keep the old lizard names (like Nazeera-Kut etc.) because I can't code anything more complex than this. If anyone wants to give it a try here are the 2 lists I'm using. You'll notice how I tried to avoid sci-fi or ss13-specific nouns to prevent names like Kills-The-Clown from popping up, which would take us back to square one. Chef, lawyer and others are still in. The noun list comes from http://www.desiquintans.com/nounlist and is free to distribute. The verbs come from https://englishpost.org/transitive-verbs-list/ I removed most verbs that required very specific nouns to work properly.

If you're gonna could you at least put it in as a secondary random-name button, rather than overwriting what's already in?

Unpopular opinion but I think verbs the noun is better because it allows more customization of the names. The other way is boring

popular opinion

Code: Select all
I strongly suspected the borgs were one humaned by the Captain because of their increasingly strange behavior throughout the round after the Captain had entered their upload and seemingly changed the laws. I had asked twice if I could blow the borgs to no response (because there was no admin online apparently). They were constantly complimenting the Captain and calling her pretty and essentially threatening people who called the Captain ugly - Pepper Oni.

Verbs the noun is fine, the problem are shitters who cant choose a normal name and admins who dont dunk them for being morons. Especially on Manuel
