Thread: (MOD) Colony Name Change

  1. #1

    (MOD) Colony Name Change

    Colony Ingame Name Change Mod 0.59
    For Divine Wind
    Also compatible with HTTT/IN

    My experience from playing this game is that I always change the names of colonies as I go along to get a more immersive feel. Though I was always frustrated that the AI cant do the same.

    So in this mod the AI will automatically change the names of its colonies in game.

    e.g. If AI England colonise Pennacook they will automatically rename it to New Hampshire with the capital being renamed to Portsmouth, or if Portugal colonise it first it will be named Nova Alentejo.

    Obviously the human player will be presented with the same choice but has no obligation to change.

    Also if colonies are seized they can be renamed once it converts culturally.

    Installation wise its only a few files; one localisation and a few event files (25 events) so it can be added to an existing mod which doesn't modify the american province positions. (Event numbers are 3330001-3330024)

    Currently the following languages are done:
    -English
    -Spanish
    -Catalan
    -French
    -Portuguese
    -Italian
    -Dutch
    -Swedish
    -German
    -Greek
    -Occitian
    -Hungarian
    -Turkish
    -Scotland English
    -Basque
    -Danish

    For the following areas:

    NB: Some languages not done for some areas shown.

    Comments/suggestions on name choice/grammar welcome as I am no expert on languages!

    Hi, I would like to integrate it into the "Sieg oder Tod!" Mod (german), if you are ok with that.

    I can check your german spelling, if you like to .

    Very, awesome, indeed. I've always been annoyed at the names in the new world.

  5. #5
    You are welcome to use it, credit would be nice!

    However I have not done it in german yet, I wanted to focus on the main colonisers first.
    Although I may add more languages/cultures later on.

  6. #6
    Wow! Awesome. Is it compatible with the latest beta patch?

    And if you add other cultures in, remember, you're gonna have to do Greek, so us Byzantine players can have our fun colonizing too.

  7. #7
    It is compatible with the patches and should be compatible with IN 3.1 onwards as well. If anyone finds otherwise please let me know.

    Greek does look a fun language to play with, Néa Athí̱na would be a cool name! Although I would probably do swedish or german first as they are next most likely colonisers.

  8. #8
    I was actually thinking about something like this, but it seemed like a lot of work. This looks super-fantastic.

    This is brilliant! Unfortunately I'm holding off on starting a new EU3 game until DW.

    Btw. Making Scandinavian names in Eastern Canada should be easy. Vinland, Markland, Helluland and so on.

    Got questions!

    Is this based on Culture groups, or specific nations? I can understand separating Portugal/Spain, but for everything else I'd make it by groups, so the mod "works" with any nation, even if the player takes something retarded (like Galicia) and makes it a massive colonizer...

    Secondly, which provinces have you worked into this?

  12. #12
    Thanks for the interest!

    It is based on culture groups, so any iberian country (apart from portugal which has its own group) such as Galicia will rename colonies in spanish.

    I have done the british group (so any british country will rename in english), french group, portuguese, italian group and dutch/flemish groups.

    So far I have done the original 13 colonies USA and most of eastern Canada. For the next version I am working on finishing Canada and the Carribean. Ultimately I hope to finish the Americas and add more languages such as swedish/german/greek. This takes time however so im focusing on more provinces first.

    Sounds fantastic! I'll certainly be keeping an eye on this one, though like some of the other folks here I'm holding off starting a new game until I have my copy of DW.

    Looks great! Do you plan on incorporating name changes into provinces in India conquered by Europeans? This would be historical, since the British renamed quite a lot of Indian cities, and then when India gained its independence the Indians changed their names back to what they were originally (example: Mumbai, changed to Bombay, back to Mumbai).

    Could this conceivably be done for the whole world? It'd take much more effort, but I'm sure a lot of people, myself included, would be willing to find names and such. It'd be cool to see Polish Danzig change to Gdansk or something.

    Well, that wasn't so much renaming the cities as it was transliterating them. No different, really, than Rome showing up as 'Rome' in english and 'Roma' in Italian, expect that the spelling it a bit more different.

    That's fantastic. I'd offer my help, but I'm useless at coding (have no experience with EU3, lol) and no lingual skills either. Good luck!

    Fair enough, when DW does come out I expect the mod to be compatible straight away, unless they change the event structure massively.

    These are definitely cool ideas, although i'm concentrating on the colonisable provinces first. This is because these are provinces with the worst names IMO. If anyone has any ideas for the more obscure inland north american provinces that would be helpful as it is hard to come up with names for those. In fact I'll take ideas for any province. It would be fairly simple for anyone to copy the event code and add more names for more provinces and then incorporate it into the mod.

    DominusNovus- your right in saying its just transliterating although I think it would add to the immersion of the game if that happened. Its just a low priority for now.

    Sqwerlpunk- thanks, enjoy the mod!

    Well, I was playing as Italy and found that the name change for Abnaki was Modena. Perhaps you could change it to Nova Modena to avoid confusion between Modena in Italy?
