Expanded Callsigns and Nicknames

This mod adds over 800 carefully curated new entries to the pools used to generate callsigns for your XCOM operatives when they reach the rank of Sergeant or above.

One of my favourite parts of XCOM has always been the procedural storytelling and this mod should expand upon that to greatly increase the diversity and uniqueness of your soldiers across multiple playthroughs.

Sources of inspiration include mythology and heroic fantasy, militaria past, present and future(?), Sci-Fi and Video Games, westerns and monster movies, the animal kingdom, and pop culture phrases and concepts. As XCOM is a multicultural organisation not all names have an english root but they should still be mostly recognisable.

*Usual mod disclaimer: Whilst this is a very simple mod, it is still a fan made mod, and not official content. Use at your own risk.

oh hey, btw, didn't see this question in the comments nor an explanation in the description: is this generic &/or vanilla class based?

Hey, I don't want you to censor on my behalf. I don't need your help deciding what is too offensive for me to read. Is there a list of the nicknames you removed so I can add them back in myself?
