This mod is intended to be run using StoryProgression Phase Twelve, see Patch Level Compatibility.




MOD


This is a tuning package for use by StoryProgression.
  • It allows users to either add new names to the EA Standard listing, or replace the entire system with a brand new set of names.
  • Editing tuning packages will require you to have an editing package tool installed on your system:
    • S3PE created by I. & P. Jones and hosted over at SimLogical
    • Packer created by - Twallan Twallan and available on this wiki

Note that this only impacts sims whose names are generated by the mod, such as inactive births, and progression immigrants.
  • If you have the "Replace Service Sims With Immigrants" those sims will also have their names adjusted.

  • You can only use one tuning package file at a time (this also includes the default (empty) "NRaas_StoryProgression_NameList_Tuning_V228.zip" file, which you will need to open with S3PE and complete with your own list of names).

  • For NRaas Wiki file storage purposes, please name your *.package file: "Nraas_StoryProgression_NameList_(...fill in anything you want to call the file...).package" and compress it with the universal tool WinZip then upload that file onto our site.

Descr.:
Names written in Cyrillic letters. This tuning does not contain Greek names such as "Василий", "Алексей", "Елена", "Оксана".
The main source was the book "Ономастикон" (1974). All the work was made manually & by only me — so I didn't work the book off on even a half.
The other source was what I saw myself in many sources in life including living people.
If you have a desire to expand this list with more slavyanic names or surnames or for other purpose of modifying — please PM me. I'll send you all helping docs including Excel table with all names and last names in a convenient form,.. or will help by a word.

Note: Anyone can use this file wherever & however.
