    The Celts.

    It is the city name that gets you the Longest City Name Ever achievement (only if you are playing as the Celts, I believe).

    Question what happens if you have a game of only Atilla the Huns AI and you are Atilla too. What names for cities appear? Or does the world explode?

    That's the achievement unlock for celt, but hun borrows everyones' city names...

    ...or you could have called it that on your own.

    Also your graphics have an issue...

    I know its nothing big - just a question what would be the programming in a case like that since you could set the AI if you wanted to.

    I may check that out later myself just to see.

    Yeah, I'm now wondering whether I could get achievement... if I was the Celts and there was Attila in the game and he spammed this city somewhere real close.

    Maybe I oughta test that, plus I haven't played as the Celts at all.

    Similarly curious on this - I too will try and start a game on this premise

    Nah, this was Baby's First Second Cultural Game - I was aiming for Bollywood achievement, but apparently mass puppeting (and probably razing) deprives you of that.:(

    And yeah, its an ole un-updated Intel chipset on DX10/11

    Not playing as Gandhi can have some hand in that, too.

    oh, you were gandhi, ai was attila. my bad.

    I got my bollywood on king about a month after release. I'm curious what it's like now with religion and slightly better tradition/freedom trees.

    That`s Welsh. It`s not even the longest in their language. My uncle is Welsh, so I know.

    Sadly yes, Cho. I'm supposed to update it, but everytime I try installing update, the thing says this driver (its Intel HD 2086, supposed to be 2087) is modified (???) and thus incompatible. Since I'm faraway from the source I got this from (California, USA)... it looks like I'll be stuck with it until i get a new rig.

    Currently I'm saving some cash for this ASUS I saw in a store a week back - IIRC quad core Intel i7 rated at 2.7 GHz. That looks something good to play me some Large or Huge games...

    im curious. do the huns take city names from civs that are in your games or not in your games? i wonder if it's in your game, and the game goes long enough for the civ to sprawl 20+ cities, you could sell one of yours to them so they'd have 2 copies of the same city? or trade so youd have twin cities and theyd have twin cities.

    I got the achievement just by having the Celts in the game as an AI. She was the run away and I guess dropped the magic city. I was surprised when notification came up.

    I heard Lloyd in Welsh originally had 32 letters in it.

    Believe it or not, that's an abbreviation. The full name of the Welsh village is:
