@Discrepancy - Any chance of updating this mod to allow using apostrophes (') also?

Yes, I can multitask. I can listen, ignore and forget all at the same time.

I've tried, but with my US keyboard the only way I could insert those characters would be using 2 methods that banished does not allow:
using the copy/paste function - banished does not allow the use of 'ctrl' key or 'alt'. And with the other option being to hold the 'alt' key and type a code into the numpad to bring up the character (e.g. alt + 0225 = á), I cannot get them to function.

I could of course just add in those characters, and see if those of you with international keyboards might be able to make them show up?

I tried that some time ago but doesn't work. Even if umlauts are added to allowed characters there is no way to insert in game. The text field for town name only supports the American layout for some reason. I see that by exchanged y and z on my German keyboard. Would need a fix in core game.

Does this mod provide random names with the new changes?

yes and no.

Because it increases the town name length it will randomly generate names that would have originally been 2-3 names. make sense?

As i started to play Banished a long time ago, I gave the towns names of places where I have lived. Unfortunately some of them contained these letters. So I hoped, that with this mod I could have contineued this series with a few "missing places" like Gökhem, Göteborg, Frölunda.

Probably the only way to get a "Göteborg" is using cheat engine. If you want such a name for your town without dealing with this tool you can send me your save file. I will change it to your liking and send you back.  :)

Thank you, both @Discrepancy and @Tom Sawyer for trying.

I don't think, it's that important to get the real letters. Although I have an idea in my mind; some day to try to build a real "model" of my village; called Södra Råda. I haven't dared to start such a project and besides; it's hard to find a proper map. We're on a peninsula and I have never seen maps like that. If I some day make a try, I will send it to you for the proper letters @Tom Sawyer.
