Greetingz, all...

I used to have a master list of planet names, for feeding into a random
planet namer utility when mastering games. I need it now, and I can't find
it...

Would anyone have a planet list they wouldn't mind sharing with me?

I don't have it, but the following tools could help:

I haven't tried it, but look at PlanetNM in Donovan's Museum site:
http://www.xs4all.nl/~donovan/museum/elite/vgaptool.htm...

Here is an online tool that let's you upload an xyplan.dat and a
planet.nm and will output a combination of those:

Yeah, that's what I was trying to replace, but the link to download
it is broken, server refused...

Just simple plain-text would be sufficient. I have utilities to pick a random
set and import into the planet.nm file alread. :)

Sorry I didn't mention it sooner, but that list of names was just the kind
of thing I was looking for. :) 

Had no problems parsing the names out and importing a random set into
planet.nm ... thanks for your help. :)
