Please expand this page to include this information.


Chunk Names are procedurally generated names given to 32x32 square regions of the world. They are displayed at the top-right of the screen and given to giants. This feature was probably based on RubyDung's area naming system.

Examples of Chunk Names

  • UUN-SAUNMAH
  • ESE-MATYAMU
  • AK-PAHPONJA
  • KIIKIIKII
  • SHINGIONI
  • GIRPAHYUME

Bugs

Bugs about Chunk Names are in the bug tracker with more info.

History

16.05 Branch
Alpha 1.0.16.05_12 Added Chunk Names along with 45 syllables.
Chunk names remain the same, no matter what world you're in. As such, they can be used to locate the coordinates of a player (provided that you have the patience to do so).
Alpha 1.0.16.05_20 Cypress Added 19 more syllables bringing the total amount to 64.
Chunk names now depend on the world seed.

Trivia

  • The image attached to Bug #0723 shows an Alpha 1.0.16.05_11 screenshot by dev1 that has a giant chunk name, despite chunk names not appearing in said version.

Footnotes

  1. Due to the code that generates chunk names only taking the first 45 (In Lilypad QA) and 64 (In Cypress) syllables out of the list, this one doesn't go used.
