    Russia looks ok.

    In Rome there should be "Imperium Romanum", the adjective comes after the noun, not otherwise.

    What will you do for civilizations with no written language (eg. Polynesia)

    I can provide names for Japan if you want.

    Probably will leave them alone, can't do much if they don't have a language can I? And if you could provide the names for Japan, that would be great!

    I just realised there aren't any city names! But if you want to put one in, Kyoto is essentially in the middle of that orange bit.

    This is an interesting mod. For Egypt, I think using ancient Egyptian instead of Arabian would be a great idea - the only problem is who understands ancient Egyptian :egypt:

    There is a supposed Heiroglyphic alphabet - used for tourists. Tacky, and nothing compared to Heiroglyphs of Old, but it'll look the part

    I am using egyptian hieroglyphs. Although it is probably incorrect in many places. I did some improvisation as well, for example, for the city Pi-Ramesses (literally "House of Ramesses") i took Per (the symbol for house) and stuck Ramesses's name at the back.

    I found a name translator and used it for the cities i couldn't find.

    Oda's DOM looked lonely without any cities, so i added kyoto, tokyo and saporro. Any objections or other suggestions?

    I would say Osaka, but it's a bit too close. Anyway, you have the writing for all three?

    For Tokyo, do you call it Edo ? I believe it's a more appropriate name for the time of Oda Nobunaga.

    Yes, especially since the modern name is 東京都 which means eastern capital.

    I've uploaded Japan. Please inform me if i've made any mistakes translating japan or any other civ. Also it's obvious the next version of this mod is going to exceed 10 mb. Could anyone suggest a place for me to upload this mod or else i'll have to separate the mod into parts.

    If you need a new place, you could try the place you use to upload the icons, or I can upload it to the ModBrowser for you

    it's alright, thanks for the offer. i've decided to just post it here in parts. It makes it easier to update anyway.
