[MOD] Extra Names Mod

Postby IcarusTyler » Sun Sep 30, 2012 1:52 pm

Have you been playing FTL for 30+ hours already? Are you seeing the same names appear over and over again? Are you tired of having the same old crewmen re-join your ship during your journey?

Well fret no more! For now there is the Extra Names Mod!

The Extra Names Mod adds over 400 new, unique and hand-picked names to FTL, including

140 female first names, like
- Annika
- Hannah
- Selene

138 male first names, including
- Harvey
- Douglas
- Miles

And 129 unisex last Names, in the style of
- Freeman
- Jensen
- Collins

Download Here

Instructions:
1. Install Grognak's Mod Manager (get it here)
2. Download the file Extra Names Mod 1.1.ftl and copy it into the "mods"-folder
(Under "FTL - Faster Than Light/mods". If you have it on Steam, under "Steam/SteamApps/common/FTL - Faster Than Light/mods")
3. Run Grognak's Mod Manager (modman.exe). Select "Extra Names Mod 1.1" and click "OK"
4. Wait till the manager finished integrating the mod.
5. Start FTL - Faster Than Light.

With the Extra Names Mod you get a high chance of getting a crew with automatic unique and interesting names, making your playthrough cooler if you don't want to adjust them manually before each campaign. New crew-members that join you on the way also benefit from this.

Enjoy!

Absolutely downloaded. Awesome addition, thank you!
Maybe this will cut down on the number of Captain Butters' I sacrifice on the Rebel altar. :lol:

Hate to break it to you, but Charlie is a fixed name. If you encounter that event, you'll get a Charlie out of it. Name list won't affect a thing there.

Just take him to Candy Mountain - pretty sure Charlie won't be bothering you much after that.

How do I use this with GMM? I download the file, and it comes in a .zip form, and I know it needs to be in .ftl for to be compatable with GMM. How do I convert this into .ftl from a .zip?

The download links to an .ftl file, so there are some shenanigans going on with your browser. Try renaming to .ftl and seeing what happens.
