GUI Polish and Villager Names

I've been mostly working on the GUI in the play mode over the past few days, really polishing it up and adding in all the missing buttons. The great thing about GUI work is it really makes the game shine, although the drawback is the inordinate amount of time it takes to code/draw! But, it's all worth it in the end.

Another feature I've finally added is villager names, there are now over 4,000 first names, and 10,000 last names for the game to pick from when a villager is generated. That's over 40 million combinations! Some of them with hilarious outcomes.

Next up will probably be building mechanics, so our little villagers can actually build objects. We're getting closer and closer to actually calling RPC a "game" every day!

..and finally, I have setup a twitter account for RPC. If you're interested in following click here:

A new villager drop-down pane. You can now see all of your villagers in a simple, easy to view list.

I think Ray used a different source, but you can find lists online of first and last names.  I've used lists from the US Census Bureau before.
