    That's a good idea, GoK. I've edited the resource description page to include the full list of names.

    OK there is one minor thing about this that's been bugging me: If you reload in mid-game, you lose all your text. I.e., instead of the continent of "Astounding" the game will show the name as NCN_CONTINENT_ASTOUNDING_DESCRIPTION. Mind you, if you read around the mods forum you'll find this isn't just me, all the mods are affected by this problem.

    Since the continent names are arbitrary in the first place I've come up with an alternative version, New Continent Names (Reloadable), that uses names from the "Citizen Names" text file. Now you can reload all you want and you won't lose your continent names.

    @PonderThis It would be interesting to expand the list of continents by having them named after Greek letters, such as Alpha, Beta, Gamma, all the way to Omega. This way, there would be 50 unique continent names and would maintain the same alphabet-based theming.

    From @Enlightened Fox in the other thread ...
    In creating a list of "whimsical" names and keeping with the A-Z theme I agree that many of the names, like "Nice Pants" and "Zounds", aren't the best. Any suggestions? "Nebulous"? "Zesty"?

    Or if the "whimsical" theme isn't for you I'd consider working out a list of more serious names and maybe have a setting within the mod where you'd choose which list you wanted to use.

    @God of Kings, I love your enthusiasm but I'm not a fan of the Greek letter thing. Still, I could add it as an option that could be enabled via some setting. Let me think about it.

    Some recent comments on Steam got me thinking that there is no single set of continent names that'll make everyone happy. So I wrote a utility that will allow you to enter your own names, the Civ VI Continent Names Editor. Give it a try.

    I have tested and confirmed this still works with R&F, along with the editor mentioned above.
