I can't read German very well - but looking through the German forums with some help from Google Translate I found a post from sojo about city names that I thought was worth posting on the international forums. (Also saw a post saying that help with texts would be appreciated due to a lack of free time)
- correct me If I haven't understood correctly, or if you have already made a list)
original - http://www.simutrans-forum.de/forum/thread.php?threadid=3266
The summary seems to be:
- Most city names should try to be fantasy names
- No brand names
- The core development team should have cities named after them - e.g. "Brosestadt" ~ "Brosetown"
I don't know if the German names translate into English directly, but these are rough translations of some of them:
Mousehole (I prefer the name "Mousehall" I think)
I can't tell which other cities are named after people, but "sojo city" seems to have a ring to it
Has anyone got any ideas - or better translations?
By the look of it, there aren't city lists for other languages either ...
