300 random Ukrainian people, plucked from their beds in their sleep, wandering around confused and lost in the Zone.

Dude.

That's harsh.

It's actually pretty simple to edit any name you want into it. Simple open up st_generate_snames.xml and find and edit a section like so:

<string id="lname_stalker_835">
<text>Pashchenko</text>
</string>

Just don't add any new entries. The game doesn't like that and I've yet to figure out the cause.

Could use a bit of proofreading, if that's humanly-possible with all entries. I had an entry that just showed the string "lname_stalker_650".

Still an excellent Mod, definitely recommend.

Yeah, I'm sure I missed a few key details with this addon as with all my addons. I'm still learning and eventually will improve everything I release (hopefully). That or work on an actual mod/pack.

I miss really obvious details with each addon I release.

Never ever download a v1.0 addon of mine (except for the Better Vanilla Headlamp, that version number is a lie - I just called it that because the original release wasn't even packaged properly and did NOTHING) because there's bound to be a patch for it within minutes of release.

You do get better at it with experience. Live and learn!

As a little suggestion, for the Mercenary Faction being hinted as hired foreigners, perhaps you could create a separate name pool for them using a couple of European languages? If anything basic, English (UK), French, and German last names seem minimal.

German more than anything, iirc at the conceptual phase they were supposed to have german accents.

Hey, if you're still checking up on this Mod, I checked the files to fix some of the typos of the strings and I noticed "lname_stalker" 645-654 are completely missing. You mentioned that adding more strings would crash the game, but I want to ask what should be done, other than manually edit all 300+ strings to match up correctly.
