Does the following sound familiar to you? You play one of YnAMP real world maps and then found your second city of Hamburg just to be automatically named it "Munich". So you open up the city screen and change the name yourself. And then, you found an other city somewhere inlands, but you're not sure what real city is there. So you open up Google Maps and check. And then, you open up the city screen and change the name yourself. Your empire thrives and since you think that attacking the northern cities of Italy might help you in your expansion, you launch your troops over the alps and into the rich cities of Napels and Palermo that cleary lie along the eastern italian coast of the adria... Wait what? Yeah, the random city naming struck again! So, after you beaten those snobbish Romans and take those cities -- well, you go into city screen and rename Naples to "Venice" cause it's obviously the perfect place for the city and you rename Palermo to... yeah, you also might end up looking up Google Maps. Wouldn't it be great, if the cities were named from the beginning just by their real world counterparts? Wouldn't it be great that "Milan" would be named "Milano" if you play the game in Italian or "Mailand" if you play it in German? Or that you could just choose to have them all displayed in their native language and even by the civ that is founding them, so if the Romans found a city on the tile where real world's Rhine river and Main river converge, they would call it "Moguntiacum". And if the Germans would found a city on the same tile, they would call it "Mainz"? I have good news for you: This project makes it happen! Now the not so good news: It's not done yet. But it has started already! Check these screenshots from a game with working code Now I need to tell you one important thing: This is a SH*TLOAD of work! I started with the Europe map and only did a few countries so far. It really takes a while to get a part of the map done. But to me, it's worth the effort -- However, if I would work on this alone, it will take very long time to finish all the maps. And I don't even touched the native and civ-specific namings yet! The more people help, the easier and faster it will be done. If you don't know how to mod, this just might be the project for you! To make it clear: As long as you know how to use a web browser and how to use a text editor, you can contribute to this project. No coding skills needed beyond the point that you can distinguish between letters and the symbols = and " . Also, you don't have to commit yourself on -- say -- doing Africa alone (you can, if you want to ). Even if you just do one country (especially if you live in this country), it will help us a lot.
