Random Map Name Generator v2.0.1

Recommended Posts

Hello all of Doomworld! Today I made a cool random map generator OBLIGE-inspired written in Python. It obviously needs the Python 2.x interpreter to run, but you can find it here.

For confidence, here is a preview of what it can generate with high parameters -- IN ONE SECOND!

To use it, simply edit the Input.INI file that comes with it.
The parameter:

  • MinNumberOfWords - determines how many words each name will have.
  • Names - determines how many names to be generated. If this is too high, then it'll be cut because for some reason Python can't write large files. :/
  • ThemeNumber - The number of the theme to be used. Theme number...
  • 1 - Tech
  • 2 - Hell
  • 3 - Outdoors
  • 4 - Marble

Never has something been made that can so adequately be summarized simply by the words "this sure is a thing".

  • I have limited experience with Python but I think you are taking a wrong approach with file handling.

    I'll definitely be using "Tech The The" as the name of my next WAD.

    it's English for "Tech, die, die"

    Here's the name generator I use for the SLIGE megaWAD builder - but I basically ripped the words from another level name generator that someone set up (can't remember where now - apologies to whoever made it!)

    > python levelname.py 4058
    The Terror Mosque
    oh noooo

    Some of those are sort of OK if you rearrange the words into something sensible.

    Maximum Scientific Tech 
    Military Industrial Plant 
    Ultimate Final Tech
    New Scientific Reactor 
    
    Nothing exceptional, but maybe usable.

    Is there a comprehensive list of level name generators anywhere? Should there be?

    "Awful Restaurant" is the GOAT WOOOOish map name.

    Confirmed for being in Doomed In Space

    I dare you to actually use that name in one of your map for the project.

    I still have to code the part that decides where to put the words based on sublists: "prefixes", "suffixes" and "adjectives". In the meanwhile... Use It In WOOO 3!

    and noone mentions this one

    "The Lace in reverence of Basless Balls"
    "The Trench besieged by The Basement"
    "A few Contemptuous Mosques becoming Poland"

    Oh my, this thing is amazing!
    Also now I know how all map names for both BTSX episodes were made :)
