    Description
    Mappa Mundi adds >15,000 unique place names to greatly increase the variety within your games.


    Options
    Mappa Mundi includes the option to enable Colonial names for European civilizations. This option is disabled by default. You can enable it by editing the UserConfig_MappaMundi within the mod folder and changing the following line:

    Source
    The primary source for this mod is Wikipedia, and the place names were scraped using a Python script. I am confident that I have removed 99% of erroneous names, but please report if you see any which obviously should not belong (example: "Deserts of Australia").

    Wonderful work! I remember being a little disappointed at how short the list of feature names were when I clicked into their file.

    Just a general tip about Norwegian place names: for example, I see on the Steam workshop page that one of the possible river names for Norway is "Flakstadelva River". The suffix -elva means "river", which means that directly translated, the name in total means "Flakstad River River." -lågen and -åa also both mean "river". However I do realise that you might already have known this and decided to sacrifice it, so to speak, to make it fit with the rest of the game's river names, which is understandable.

    Also, due to the nature of how we use place names in Norwegian, I would have left the names without any additional "River" or "Mountains" suffix. "Glomma River", like the devs called it for this expansion, feels a bit like buttering bacon when Norwegians would just call it Glomma (or Glåma). Interestingly, they translated Numedalslågen to "Numedal River", which also is fine, while leaving Gudbrandsdalslågen untranslated.

    Thanks for the feedback! I can certainly add that to the list of changes I want to make for the next version. Fortunately things like that are rather easy to do, so it shouldn't be any trouble. I only speak English, so any tips from speakers of other languages are much appreciated!

    @thecrazyscot - Was getting a Unique Constraint Error in regards to the Amazon River. Looks like the "Expansion2_NamedPlaces_Text.xml" is getting loaded after your "NamedPlaces.xml". Throwing a LoadOrder on it fixed the issue.

    Some suggestions for Norwegian volcano names:

    - Brandbukampen
    - Sølvsberget
    - Ullernåsen
    - Tofteholmen
    - Ranvikholmen

    These are all remains of volcanoes on the Norwegian mainland, though difficult to find out about for non-Norwegians, as they only seem to be documented in Norwegian sources. The first three are hills today, and the last two are islands. There are also two calderas I've found out about, but I don't know if they (or calderas in general) can be properly used as volcano names:

    - Bærumskalderaen
    - Drammenskalderaen

    Thanks! I will go ahead and implement those, and I think calderas are mostly fine, there are quite a few in there already.

    Hi, I have some modded civs that have their own named places, is it compatible with Mappa Mundi or there is a risk of conflict if the names are the same?

    Hi Gedemo, currently I am completely replacing the named place tables, so I would need to add support in for each of your civs otherwise they will simply pull from the general pool of names. If you provide me all of your CivilizationTypes (e.g. CIVILIZATION_GREECE) I will add support for all of them in my next update.
