That's disappointing. I was hoping for that.
Yea, of course, but that's a bit different situation. I was talking (based on what was said in the life stream) about the moment when you discover an already-named river and you guess which civilization was there, only by the name. That clearly means that you haven't met any living person, because you would have much more hints about the civ, not just a name of a river.
It'd be great if these names were editable by the controlling Civ as well. As an example, many of the cities in India currently originally had different names. Bombay = Mumbai, Calcutta (Bangladesh) = Kolkata, Poona = Pune. Geographical feature names ought to be able to be altered too.
Quite a few mountains that straddle over borders have several names as it is.
Kolkata is not in Bangladesh, it is the capital city of the Indian state of West Bengal.
Oops. I keep forgetting my basic Warhammer 40K Orkish:
"What's the capital of Bangladesh?"
"Dakka dakka dakka!"
So finally just have small time to watch the livestream and updating the list. Do you guys think the Balkan Mountain could actually belongs to Hungary instead of Turkey?
Kilaeua is a volcano name in the Hungary livestream. It probably belongs to America.
They're in Bulgaria and Serbia, which is historically Ottoman territory. I would hope that if they appeared on the Greek or Macedonian list they'd use the Thracian name Haemus Mons...
They do have Yangtze
National Parks are named after a city or natural wonder adjacent to the park
What about oceans, inland seas or lakes ... I would love to see those named, particulary oceans
Obviously, I made that comment before we spotted the name Yangtze in a livestream.
Can you update with the OP with the feature names we learned from the Canadian livestream?
@Giskler you may be able to help out with this.
Most Australians already think Nullabor is an Aboriginal word rather than the somewhat less creative Latin "No trees".
As for the blank spaces in the OP for National Parks, the one we've seen labelled was named after the city. It's possible that if a national park contains a Natural Wonder (this one didn't) it will take the name of the NW. But there seem to be no pregenerated National Park names (such as Peak District National Park for England).
And Huang He is in under its English name - which seems unfortunate.
I'm still holding out hope that islands will be named.
I think the names should be able to belong to multiple civs. Like the Rhine could be named by Germany, France or the Dutch. Ofcourse once the name is gone, the other civs can't use it.
I saw Colorado Plateau desert in my game. I was excited about that. Though that may be from the Ynamp mod. Where do I find the list of these names?
I have a list of them all at the bottom of my Map Thread
As always, phenomenal work on those maps. It must have taken forever!
Are those names in the Civilopedia? They should be clickable to get more info. about those names.
I wish the Civs would get their own languages in the game, and not the English one. I dislike the Dutch settling The Hague near the Rhine. It's Den Haag, and De Rijn. I dislike Germany settling Cologne, instead of Köln.
That they all have to use the roman alphabet, I can understand, but why do the city names, and geographical labels, need to be translated too?
Separate names with a comma.
