Permissions and credits

TO USE THIS MOD: just replace the existing XComGame.int with my version. My version includes over a few thousand lines of code with the new names. See more specific instructions at the end of this description.

WHAT IS THIS MOD: It increases automated soldier nicknames for Long War mod.  By default there are roughly 32 nicknames per class, and some are shared. This mod uses between 150 and 200 unique nicknames per class. You should be able to play multiple games and without having the same iterations of call-signs used over and over.

Nicknames in this mod are military flavor. I took a lot of names from military blogs and websites. Names are kept relatively thematic by class.

Assault - 191 names. Themed around aggressive or daring animals or concepts.
Heavy - 182 names. Themed around destructive or durable animals or concepts
Sniper - 156 names. Typically sneaky or long ranged concepts.
Support - 169 names. Themed around medical or technological concepts.
Mechs - 35+ names. Themed around various mechanical concepts.
Female names have slight edits with specific differences where appropriate.

Version 1.3 notes:
Updated for Long War release candidate 1.0.

Version 1.2 notes:
Updated to work with Long War beta 15e. Some minor name edits.

Version 1.1 notes:
Updated to work with Long War beta 15c. Minor fixes to female name list.

EASY INSTALL (for un-modified Long War):

1) Download my file from NexusMods: XComGame_ChromeWeasel-Nicknames_v1.3.zip

2) Unzip the downloaded file to get the game file: XComGame.int

3) Overwrite the default XComGame.int with my version. The default install location is located here:
C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\XCom-Enemy-Unknown\XEW\XComGame\Localization\INT\XComGame.int

Start a new game and your soldiers will have many more nicknames assigned to them.

ADVANCED INSTALL (for MODIFIED LONG WAR, or VANILLA XCOM):

It is very easy to modify this file for your own use if you do not use the Long War mod, or if you use another mod that updates XComGame.int. Just copy the roughly 1400 lines following [XGCharacterGenerator] in my version of XComGame.int, and overwrite the corresponding 300 or so lines in the default version of XComGame.int.
