@GC's video - That's beautiful. That's so beautiful. I can't even express how beautiful that is. He thinks just like I do. :)

I wrote:Having fun with the GECK, the official Fallout III content creation program, I constructed this monumental chamber in about two hours. At its heart lies the Jacobee Composition Kit, a container which spits out random 8-letter words. (The workings of the kit's inner machinations are in themselves almost as complex as the chamber itself, and probably took me longer to design.)

I made this because I have been working on creating a fictitious language ever since I read The Lord Of The Rings in fifth grade, and every time I give up and start over, it's always because I feel like I'm not being original enough. At first I would base my languages off of latin, and then off of greek. Finally I decided I was going to come up with a way of producing a language with a completely original set of vocabulary, not derived from any existing language. Hence arose the concept of the Jacobee Composition Kit. ("Jacobee" is just a working title I use for my language, since I have no better name for it.)

The kit works by randomly picking letters for each position in the word from a preset list that I composed myself. Letters are weighted so that some will appear more frequently than others in certain positions. There are also one silent consonant (which appears in-game as an apostrophe) and one silent vowel (which appears in-game as a hyphen).

The words the kit produces are very long and primitive-sounding. This is because the kit does not actually spit out words in their final form as they will appear in my language's eventual lexicography, but rather produces etyma (roots/origins). The extra syllables on the end are used when the word switches from one function to another, and serve as suffixes, like "-ness" or "-ize" in english; so even though the words the kit produces are all three or four syllables long, the final words will all be only one or two syllables long, at least in their base forms. Here is a run-down of the words shown in this video, and their transliterated and abridged forms as they would appear in a lexicography.

'eqemeye → eqem ("ey-keym")
wose'-pa → wosep ("woh-seyp")
weŋ-peqa → wimpe ("wim-pey")
wewefele → wewef ("wey-weyf")
loy-fepe → luife ("lwee-fey")
famem-we → famiu ("fah-myoo")
ŋa'-lama → ŋala ("ngah-lah")

You are making a language with the assistance of a computer game?

That is one of the strangest things I have ever heard of, but if it works, go for it.

Do the words mean anything?

Meanings can only be assigned after I've drawn up a list of morphemes. So no, they don't mean anything yet.

used to be my idea, but no longer.
it's stupid not to call someone who's black black. just like it's stupid not to call a blonde blonde. it's a descriptor. we shouldn't add judgement to it, it's no different in quality. it does exist however, and thus should be acknowledged.

at your creation, nice work, i assume you did it with loot lists?

part of them.
i don't mean at every occasion, but i think being able to say "that black guy" is a good thing, as long as you don't intend anything other than the factual description.
if i describe you, i'd describe your hair, eyes, general shape, skin colour, etc. if you were purple, you'd look different, deserves to be acknowledged.

other'n that, there's the fact that different genes mean different dispositions, there are certain medicine meant for negroids for a reason.
discrimination, in the purest sense of the word, seeing the difference between things, is a good thing. giving it a certain value is not.

difference 'tween the view freeman in the vid and mine, is that he wants everyone to be "person", i'd like the distinction. it's there in the world, it should be there in a person's view.

Oh, I wasn't referring to that, and I don't think he was saying otherwise. He wasn't saying he shouldn't be thought of as physically black, just that he shouldn't be thought of as being of the black race.

at your creation, nice work, i assume you did it with loot lists?


They're called "leveled lists" in the program, but yeah. It took something like three levels of lists and sublists to achieve the proper ratios.

I did not use the script extender, or any other program but the GECK. Sometimes I am disappointed by the GECK's limitations, but usually its utility exceeds my expectations, if a little ingenuity is exercised.

Other way around, for you, I'm guessing. Do you realize¿

the script extender helps loads though, in allowing new things.
there's also plenty of stuff like textures/meshes available for you to use. though i imagine you don't need that stuff much right now.

The script extender would be nice if I were going to create some sort of total conversion, but as it is I am content with working within the game's existing framework.
