    Here are some brief translations. (I don't know how to add it to the pic)
    The region as a whole (south-west Taiwan) was called the TianXing province(天興州) at that time.

    Translations of some administrative locations:ChengTian prefecture (承天府), the town of AnPing (安平鎮), the village of XinGang (新港社)

    Translations of some other regions: WuDing(武定), YongKang(永康), XinFeng(新豐), BaoDa(保大), RenHe(仁和),XinChang(新昌),JiaXiang(嘉祥),WeiXin(維新)

    Yeah, I've seen the map, but by itself it isn't much use to me, since I don't speak Chinese. If you would be so kind and turn it into an actual priority-ranked list of city names? Like:

    10) Capital
    9) Two-three most important other places
    8) Several important other places
    7) Other places

    Would be great! Then we'd have all the city lists finished.

    So here's the list

    Capital: "Dong Dou Ming Jing"(東都明京), literally means "the bright eastern capital", usually just called "Dong Dou"(東都) in short. After Koxinga's death, his successor changed the city's name to "Dong Ning"(東寧), meaning peace in the east, as he didn't view himself as a vassal to the Ming but rather an independent king.

    Major cities: Cheng Tian(承天)
    Tian Xing(天興)
    Wan Nian(萬年)

    Minor places: As Koxinga's family only rule over a small portion of Taiwan, many of these minor places are just a few villages combined. These include:
    An Ping
    Zhen Bei
    Wu Ding
    Yong Kang
    Chang Xing
    Gui Ren
    Bao Da
    Gan Hua
    Wen Xian
    Ren He
    Xin Hua
    Yi Ren
    Chong De
    Wei Xin
    Jia Xiang
    There are more of these minor places if the developer needs more, I left out some places that have similar translations to the previous ones to prevent confusion.

    I can't really find places that fit into that "Several important other places" category since The region is so small and relatively underdeveloped. There are, however, some relatively large regions(protectorates) that Koxinga's family established in areas largely inhabited by indigenous tribes, in order to assimilate them. They are:
    Bei Lu Protectorate or Northern Protectorate
    Nan Lu Protectorate or Southern Protectorate
    Peng Hu Protectorate
    Ban Xian Protectorate
    Ji Long Protectorate
    Dan Shui Protectorate
    I Hope they made up for the lack of major places.

    P.S. I feel like protectorate isn't the most accurate translation for “安撫司”, but I can't think of a better word because of my ****** English so I'll leave it at that.

    Yeah, it's fine, thanks. I'm down with flu currently so I don't do much in terms of replying (or much at all, really).
