Unless there is a way around this, we would have to hope the names randomize together, or we'd all have to input said names into the "name in game" system.


And what I meant is: I bet the name in game system can be modded as well, meaning that you'd not have to resort to randomness.

Yes names in game can be modded, and that's what formed the basis for GFC Mod - Commemmorative Simcity Release ;)

Considering the ridiculous lengths they have gone to over wikileaks, who knows how far they would go. Even if John Kiriakou okayed it, the CIA could be considered to have an equivalent claim over the content - Although to press such a claim would be tantamount to admission that it happened.

My interest in naming a prisoner after him in an obvious & undeniable way has dropped. Maybe a switching some letters here & there, combined with not mentioning any real life agencies by name - But this gets into the issues of innocent prisoners being in the game at all, which is entirely the subject of another thread.

But there are innocent prisoners in game, Chris already talked about how a few of them are not guilty of the crimes they're charged with.
Yes, that is a penguin with rabies. Deal with it.

Well, that's at least healthier than the other way around...

In fact, I might do the same.
