I'm writing a CRM app and could use some interesting initial data. I remember Rimworld had some amusing and creepy company names. I'm computer literate, a programmer. If you simply point me at some file(s), I will get strings from it.

Colonist names could also come in handy. Anything to throw my potential future employer off-balance, really. List of colonist backgrounds, etc.

The root for the name generator is Mods/Core/Defs/RulePackDefs/NameGenerators_Trader.xmls

But yes most of the source words are in the file linked by Adamiks.

SO THAT'S where you hid the string files OH my god do I feel silly now
(I used a good hour to move my old name makers from txt in the rulepacks and add all the 'li's and ->'s and everything cause I couldn't figure out the path for them)

There's no such file in my RimWorld alpha10f directory. It's pure vanilla.

The names are in the path underlined with green here
and the "code" if you will that handles the "randomizing" of the naming process is in the path underlined with orange ;D

It's in the A11 test build you have access to.

I found this thread when googling for the same thing. The company names are no longer in the suggested folder. Does anyone know where they are in the current version?

If you're looking for the txt files they're spread out a little as the trader names are constructed out of multiple parts

Languages -> Strings -> Words -> Nouns has BusinessTypes.txt
and
Languages -> Strings -> Names has Business.txt
but they also use quite a few other txt files for some trader names like the animals and vegetables etc.

If you, for example, have an onlifans, it is very important that your work was not wasted. So you can properly track your situation with popularity, marketing and promotion. Competent analyst will tell you what to improve and how to advance on this service. It was very helpful to me at the time that I found here onlyfans management and I keep my channel exactly based on these analyses.
