    Since by landing on AC we're starting the tech tree all over again, one can assume that something caused all the passengers to become really stupid. In this case, I move that we name the capital 'Og' or 'Boo'

    I think that it could be time for Dell to make another poll to choose the new capitals name. Regia Civitas gets my vote - The People Capital!

    How about "Crater" since that's where we have apparently crash-landed and joggled our minds so as to forget all we once knew.

    With that in mind, we shouldn't really call it "New Olympia" or have anything with new since we've forgotten from whence we came. Perhaps some old maps have survived so we know the names but not the technology...

    Would this mean that our next spaceship would have to head for Beta Centauri?

    Hey, we can call the capital "Centauri" since that was what the ship was aimed for anyway... :)

    Yes but since its a new world and we have forgotten most of our history, the people could name the nearest star to them "Alpha Centauri" So we could actually be trying to fly back to the Sun, depending on whether the Sun is the closest star to AC.

    This is only my second post in the demo game, but maybe i was hoping some day the city of Huitziland could be founded.... ;) or maybe Neo Tenoch (just not to use the "new") ...

    Well you are a new member so you don't have a previous city named after you so there shouldn't be the new problem anyway.

    Since we won't have the English or the Romans in this game at any stage then I have plenty of options! :D

    York and Eboracum spring to mind, and if we've got the French as opponents then I can have Jorvik as a choice too!

    I would like a city name "Neuma" for me sometime in this game. (50 points to anyone who can figure out the connection ;) )
