I'm currently re-writing this in C# and have decided to rename it 'TS2 SPaR'. I'm waiting for Freetime to be delivered so I can see what they added in respect to the creation of Sims before I'll release this new version.
For those running TS2 not wanting a .Net applicaton, I'm also planning a Java version.
As with The Amazing Random Sim Maker
I couldn't really find a proper place for this application as it's not really a modding tool, but more of a helper type tool.
Simmaker mentioned above was partly inspiration for building this tool as was Family Creator
The reason for writing yet another of these was adding extra functionality that I was interested in. Things like being able to add new first names and last names, but also to add in extra turn ons and such that seems to get added every few expansions without loosing randomness from the generations and without having to modify the application itself.
The .ts2 and .ini fields are normal text file that can be edited to add any of these various bit of texts as needed. Everybody would most probably not need 88000 surnames, or wouldn't like the pet names I've added in the files after looking around on some sites for those.
I have specifically not added an installer for this as I quite like not having too much written to the registry and as such it can just be unzipped in some directory and used from there. Please keep all the files in a single directory.
I have tested this on WinXP Home and Windows 2000.
