Name Generation Bug?

Post by Andrettin » September 15th, 2018, 11:43 am

My understanding is that for units' given names, context-free grammar name generation should take precedence over the markov chain generation. However, for dwarvish names, that does not seem to be happening. If I replace the markov name list with a new name list, dwarvish names will be entirely generated based on my new list.

The context-free grammar name generation only seems to take precedence over the markov chain name generation if I replace "name_generator" with "male_name_generator". That is, for male names the priority order seems to be like this:
male_name_generator
male_names
name_generator

Whereas the desired behavior is apparently for the priority to be like this:
male_name_generator
name_generator
male_names
