I've read in the recent update patch that the developer can't find a Koxinga-era map, here it is.
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:
9) Two-three most important other places
8) Several important other places
7) Other places
Sorry I have some assignments from school so I didn't reply. I can do this in a few days
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)
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:
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.
Is the list ok? I don't see any reply is there something wrong with it?
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).
Just curious, no one in the development team read Chinese?
At this point in time, Walter is the development team.
