  • I'm probably joking.
Every time I go into this sheet I find I need/want a new collumn. XD
I just added GenericVerbPresent, to complete the infinitive, past tense, and generic, which resolves the issue I created by doing "{GenericVerb}ing"

But now I find that GenericAdjective comprises two or three different types of adjectives!  That is: some nouns have two different adjectives associated with it that have very different meanings: an object that causes that descriptive, an object that is that descriptive, and an object that can be the descriptive.

E.g. "the distracted guard" vs. "the distracting gaurd" vs. "the distractible guard"!

Amen.

Would it be possible to use item names in the names of other items, for instance 'The Use Of {Generic Adverb} {Racial Adjective} {Military_BannedWeapons} In {Broadcast_Education}'?

It is. You can see examples of it already in the Tags.


After browsing these lists so much, it is hard to make me laugh. However, I still find Peltians with nuclear weapons hilarious. I present to you:
Homey Uranium Grip Replacement - Its the equivalent to a pearl-handed revolver in humans.

I was doing stuff like that all over the place.  It makes things muuuch more interesting when you can combine subjects.

I need an intervention.



Or we're going to end up with a noun/plural/verb/adjective/adverb form of every single imaginable category.

I've been having similar problems. To curve it, I've been focusing on making sure that there are sufficient "decent" items for every single race/item combination. Once we have that, then we can go overboard with the other lists. Assuming Chris has this automated, as long as we can keep the tags clean, it shouldn't be a problem.

Oh, I've been fleshing out the various lists when I can.  I tripled the size of the "banned military tech adjective" list today.

But that specific column expansion was so that I could get some more interesting TortureNonfiction items.  I was too hamstringed by having only nouns to work with.

May I clarify that the game can draw a particular entry multiple times in a game?

For example, say I write
{BannedAdjective} ribald fantasies of {OurRacialLeader}
It's possible that this item will be created multiple times, which is not very good?
As opposed to
{MediaSuffix} {MediaSuffix}
Which can be repeated N times without problems.

I think so but it does prevent duplicates afaik, so if you removed the {BannedAdjective} it shouldn't appear too many times(I assume you meant {OurRandomRacialLeader}).

Chris mentioned that exact duplicates are suppressed in the game, yes.

re:Claive - Add them to the list

General Update
I filtered and cleaned the current items on the list.
To make things easier on my formatting code I comment each questionable item with #.
