    So, putting aside actually adding coordinates, would changing the reference map in the files be all that's required to make this method work with YNAEMP, or is there something else you need to do?

    I tried using your "Amer-Asian Resources" mod in conjunction with "Resources Expanded" and "Accurate Earth".
    But the new world resources show up in the old world (Rice and Tobacco in spain eg.). Is this intentional? :)

    Well, the script that places resources on the map has no way to detect scenario maps nor anticipate what specific continents resources should be placed on. That's just a limitation of the script. If you want a more traditional placement of modded resources, you'll have to do that with WorldBuilder.

    I think you're asking about the dynamic naming? Swapping out the map in this mod isn't a good idea, because there are other lua scripts acting on it. Best to lift out the dynamic naming component and place that in a new mod with your new map. And you'll definitely have to go through the city names to adjust the x, y coords.

    Right, I meant taking those files and swapping out the name of your map (AccurateEarth, I think) for the name of the Giant Earth map. And yeah, of course changing the x and y coords.

    Okay, thanks.
    Is the only way to place the resources (in WB) from the mod, manually? (by hand, plotting one by one)

    Great mod by the way!

    Is it possible to make a tile have a different city name depending on the civ settling? Ex: A certain tile renames the city to Mexico City if settled as Mexico, but Tenochtitlan if settled as the Aztecs.

    Yes, this is possible and is how the Accurate Europe city naming works. But this requires city names be attached to specific civs instead of globally, as in Accurate Earth. By the way, Accurate Earth allows the option to have a civ use the global city names or their own city names (as the Aztecs do).

    Is it possible to have both? So if Monty settles in Mexico, it uses his city names, but if he settles in, say, Australia, it uses Canberra or Adelaide or whatever's assigned to the tile.

    When I play as England it uses the normal English names for cities no matter where I found them. Is this a bug and is there any chance it will be fixed? Otherwise it is a great mod.

    I can't replicate this, so my guess is you have a conflict of some sort with another mod.

    I love the mods although the earth one is just simply too small for me.

    Updated Accurate Earth to v.9, which now includes an option in the Advanced setup screen to disable the city cap, allowing standard civ expansion rules. Link in top post.

    Updated Unique traits to v.8. In addition to a few minor bug fixes, following have changed:

    • Dido (Trade Rule): Cities founded on coasts receive a free Cothon and claim nearby resources. Each traded resource type generates 2 Gold and 1 Culture per Turn.
    • Oda Nobunaga (Sakoku): Internal trade routes generate Science. Castles yield +2 Production and Gold. Captured cities receive a free Castle.

    Trade rule generates those yields for both incoming and outgoing trades of a resource. For example, if you export 2 iron and import 3 iron, you will gain 4 gold and 2 culture per turn.

    Sakoku now adds science equal to the amount of production or food the internal trade route currently produces, which scales better over the course of a full game.

    Also added top panel yield tooltips for Dido, Oda, Askia (Tarik al-Sudan), and Elizabeth (Regnum Gloriana). Thanks JFD!
