Okay, I KNOW I have done this before, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how.

I'm on a Mac, so using IFFSnooper, but I know there is a way to rename ALL the characters in the game before it generates a new neighborhood. I know how to go into whichever Neighborhood.iff and change the last names (Townie, Anybody, &c) but I cannot remember how I got to the first names. I know I did it somehow; I can picture a long list to choose from and going through them. It wasn't via the individual character files, either. It was some kind of master list.

Where are the first names stored? Is it somewhere other than the appropriate Neighborhood.iff? Am I just missing something in IFFSnooper?

I finally hit on the right keywords to find the thread where this was mentioned, here: http://www.simblesseoblige.com/viewtopic.php?t=6347&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=names+changing

The Townie, &c first names are in GameData/Live.iff.

Thank you, I did not know that and it might come in handy!
