    That makes sense. Actually can you make the generator only generate about 1-2 drivers from certain countries with less drivers in real life? I kinda bugged because the randomizer generated too many drivers from Thailand and Turkey, which actually kinda unrealistic (at least for me).
    Also, I've uploaded .txt files of first and last names from all countries available. Maybe you don't really need these, but it should help you reduce your work in the names (They're in one archive).

    Doesn't ZRT's Valdés have an é in his name? If that works, I see no reason for those to not work.

    Those files are from game's resources.assets itself. And it should be moddable like other .txt files, though I don't think it's supported by Workshop. You have to import it using Unity Asset Explorer.

    I get very rarely a Thailand driver and only one Turkish driver per new game start. Must be random then.

    I haven't tested it in the game yet, I just peeked inside the .txt file.

    yeah about that, did they add any new components for engi, or any new special race strategies for mechanics? cos if so its gona be a bit harder :)

    The same amount of names i ve given would be more then enough, more second names as a general rule since they ll be used by both genders. Consider that on average there wont be many finnish drivers generated, and even if 2 of them have same name/last name wouldnt be the end of the world, and thats very unlikely considering that amount of names in that list.

    Dont shoot out to me a list of all names in a row please, cos then i ll have to work on the again, rather look at what i wrote and give me the list in the same format, so i can just copy paste it into the tool, without having to re-format it again. What I did with the italian and english list after was already formated properly, I eliminated all the weird names, and added some common ones that werent there, just dont cut too many to avoid double spawns. Be wary of the grammar one " too much or too little and i am gona get error, and mind those commas too ;)

    It looks like that so far there are no new engineer or mechanic traits.

    Yep, they are new driver traits in the vanilla game. And even more in FlamingReds new mod.

    EDIT: Hi Eddie here is the original Personal Traits.txt. And if it isn't to much problem could you also made a version for FlamingReds Personal Traits.txt. if it is to much work (and problem), then no problem thanks anyway for your hard work.

    Progress report: I've used the generated drivers file and my previously mentioned old version copy-paste patch stuff for mechanics and engineers for half a season in my new game, and everything still seems to be working just fine.

    No significant complains then. I might personally increase the average amount of traits the drivers get a bit, just the make it a bit more diverse. But the generated files certainly make the game a lot more fun when all the drivers are new and have to be scouted again! I wish there was something similar for the other staff.

    Attached are the new list for finnish names, all in the same file and formatted ready to go. I used most common names from 80's-2000's plus some all-time favourites to make the names look kinda modern and something you would expect from people that are in their 20s and 30s now.

    Edit: Forgot one thing I noticed. I believe the "skinny" trait is not connected to the driver weight in any way at the moment? Could that be done?

    You are welcome. :)

    I'll give the new version a try later today to see how it works.

    If you want to throw me the name lists for swedes, norwegians, danes and icelandic people, I could check those names, too (not before next week, though).

    Thanks Eddie trying out right now.

    If you haven't could you made one that have also FlamingReds traits when you release the completed version (if it's not too much problem of course).

    I thing that the randomizer don't have enzoli's name database. Even if you you choose real I thing those names are not exactly same as enzoli's. Of course I am not sure.
