File and installation instructions updated for Universe.
The new file contains just over 1,500 'real' star names, i.e., they are generally accepted names of (mostly nearby) stars catalogued in the milky way galaxy.
The file does not duplicate star names, so where there are several names for a given star, I have picked the one which seems best known. For example 'Sirius' is a better known name than 'alpha canis majoris' so it is Sirius that appears in the file. Edit: Oops this is not completely true, I uploaded the wrong file. The file is updated compared with the previous one, but in this file I had not deleted the Bayer names (i.e., the alpha/beta/gamma 'whatevers') which had corresponding common names. If anyone wants the latest file, let me know and I'll upload it.
If you don't like this type of star name, then I refer you to Historyis' alternative file, here:
My file does not include “Sol” (in fact the game might include it anyway, because it is an ancient home system name for humans). If you want, just add it to the end of the text file (along with anything else you want).
1. If you're already using any themes, just drop the attached text file into the folder for those themes. The star names will then load along with the rest of the theme. There shouldn't be any conflicts, unless the theme is using it's own systemName.txt file, in which case you probably shouldn't use my file.
2. If you're not using any other themes, just create a folder (e.g. called 'Real Star Names') inside your 'Customization' folder, drop the attached text file into your newly created folder, and change to the new theme within the game menu.
