Re: System names generation - Italian variant

Great :) so the main steps are: Get a list of cities/towns in your language. For example I got the Italian and French ones from a site of the interior ministry of the two governments. It should be reasonably large because we need some statistics, it would be great to have at least about a thousand n...

Re: System names generation - Italian variant

Small update: I'm cleaning up the French database, I'm still unsatisfied with some syllables. I have some encouraging results though: System Name: chagennirac System Name: seval System Name: litiliers System Name: segne System Name: bortregy System Name: forron System Name: borly System Name: fonval...

Re: System names generation - Italian variant

Yes, I agree, this is basically a first draft where I am running a few tests. Maybe some other italian speaking people can offer some suggestions. Those test prefixes are probably best for starports/stations, and I would not use them as they are now, they are just an idea of what can be done to impr...

Re: System names generation - Italian variant

Ok, after a quick glance at the existing code, I would say it shouldn't really pose memory/cputime issues. I'll wait on comments on the generated names, on the possible expansion to the system, and if there are italian speaking people around, if they feel it's looking decent ;-) Just as an example o...

System names generation - Italian variant

Dear All, as promised on github I will briefly summarize what I did and what could be done codewise to get some Italian-sounding system names, if you think this could be ok with the current name generation. I tried a few approaches dividing city names into segments, but I found out that some specifi...

Re: Do we actually *need* atmospheric shielding?

Would it be naive to just have: cone shield if aerobraking, otherwise (normal flight, fights, scooping) have hull shape set drag/properties? This is what I was arguing... if we can switch between cone-shield and hull-shield, why can't a DSMiner owner have a sleek von Karman atmospheric-flight-shiel...
