    Somebody help me with this snippet

    Hey there, I've been meaning to add a random name that I plan to add as a part to a generator I've already made and it refuses to work. Johnn said he didn't know what was wrong with it either. Can somebody help? { "name":"RandomOne", "resultPattern":"{nmZero}" { "name": "nmZero"...

    Question: Can Generator pull from logger's tags?

    i just wondered, is it possible to point the generator to a tag table in our logs and pull a random entry from @ or § ? with all the data we already dump into the logs, not only could we save time but we could mine our own logs for data and get some totally random relations all of a sudden.

    Ideas for bulk generator data entry?

    The Generator Service is fantastic for setting up and managing your generators. It's not good right now at bulk adding entries. The feature is in the backlog, but vNext will be our prirority in 2020. My current process is to use Excel. I put entries into a sheet, add all the syntax, export to...

    Vulgar (or Vülgår?) is a fantasy language generator that generates the basics of an internally consistent constructed language, starting from phonology and basic grammar rules and ending with a core vocabulary of the invented language.

    Quest generator

    Today I finally sat down to write something for the August generator challenge. The end result is something lighthearted with a seriously limited data set: https://randomcreation.net/?token=b0c349c01fb9404b9d30d85e9c1b5299 Still, I had fun writing this one.

    Generator feature request: global variable introduction

    For me the biggest cause of showstopper issues is how introduction of global variables in handled. As expected, global variables need to be introduced in a generator that uses them: globals: species: '' culture: '' civilization: '' But if that generator calls another generator that...

    Feature Request: Bulk add rows in new generator UI

    @mKlaumann @JochenL Can we make it as easy as copy & paste within the UI to populate individual tables? I build my data sets in Excel or plain text file. It would be ideal to create generators straight from there instead of building row by row in the UI, or switching to Code mode and adding...

    Generator Public Interface Definition

    I am creating a fleet / army generator Should we agree syntax for call points. For example the generator could include "interfaces:" that would be similar to tags. In the interfaces one could list those of the subtables that are meant to be exposed to external parties. For example I have...
