    Same with settler maps:
    you can get this file
    http://rhye.civfanatics.net/civ4/RFGW/citynamesmap.rar

    and fill it with a civ you like.
    Replace -1 with the name of the city, surrounded by " ",
    Make sure you don't delete the " or the comma.

    The best way to fill these maps would be to apply the name of a city to a 2x2 box, when possible. There's room for random city list on the right.
    You can use RFC maps (included in the file) to help with city names in ancient languages.

    I'm sorry, link now fixed.

    I've added to the file some RFC-based samples. A lot of research went into those maps, so it's a reliable source of info.

    Here is one for the Greek cities and colonies. I assume it will do for both Sparta and Athens.

    good attempt. There's a few things to refine, but it will be done later.
    For now, here's a screenshot of your contribute:

    Well I hope it's a helpful starting point at least. I think I will start working on a Roman one, but it will probably take a while.

    Any chance we could get a copy of the map to see where rivers, mountains, etc. are? It would make locating the inland cities easier.

    yes I can, but mountains, forests etc aren't in a final state. They may be moved later if needed

    A rough idea would be better than nothing. Knowing where the Alps are for the Italia-Germania border and such.

    I've done Phoenicia, after investing (too) much work in it.

    Of course there's many Roman or Greek names since nowadays we don't have much left regarding Punic names and language. And there's some anachronisms, like cities founded by the Carthaginians, but those are Punic too, right? I learned a lot af stuff about Phoenicia doing this! :D

    I'll probably do Carthage a bit later, maybe during the weekend. It shouln't be hard as many cities are the same.

    Here's an empty city name map with mountains and rivers shown, in case anyone else finds it helpful.

    You can click the etruscan region, then click on a city and read up some history for each of it (history in italian, sorry).

    Carthage done.

    It's based mostly on the Phoenician map, with some changes:
    - Mastia becomes Qart Hadasht
    - Motya partly becomes Lilybaeum
    - New names in inner Hispania
    - Kartaia moved east a bit because its four squares wound up being mountains :sad:
    - New setup in the core area (you might want to make the same changes in the Phoenician map too)
    - Some sites in Italy
    - Nothing in Phoenicia proper

    Roman Italy!

    I used several duplicate names on adjacent tiles, as RFC does. I do think that the map has too much room up by the Alps, and not enough in central and southern Italy. I have a square of Mediolanums, but only two Romas or two Neapolises.

    Here's a etrutian city name map which might need a "little" refinement, but anyway, it still is suitable for an alpha and as a draft for the finished one.

    Edit 1:
    I made a terrible mistake... i relocated their capital... anyway, uplaod new one after mistake is corrected

    Edit 2:
    Here it is, with the right capital (only etrutian name;))

    Well, spaceman98 basically took over and made some improvements only about 3 months ago, here. I heard that there's a serious bug with the latest version, though.
