There are some universals, and we should strive to use those wherever possible - but there are some colonies that were named after people, and we can't rewrite history to make it universal. It would be an interesting flavor touch if the colony was renamed in the language of the civ that built it, (i.e. if the Dutch built Quebec, it would be named Neeu Amsterdam *I recognize that these were different locations, but they would have both been fur trading colonies*), but I'm not sure how difficult that is to code. My compromise suggestion is to use regions named after people rather than distinct settlements - i.e. Virginia rather than Jamestown. Virginia in Dutch is still Virginie, right? Actually, I really like this idea. I'm sorry that I misunderstood it before; this seems like a good solution. Anyone else have an opinion on the conquests?
