There are currently issues with the 2nd rebellion and changing the names for settlements. It is recommended you change city names after the rebellion. Please use caution.
Playing a Roman campaign, I began to become annoyed when conquering cities and knowing they did not have latin names or cities that Rome begins with during Hannibal's invasion did not have their proper names. I took the initiative for my game by looking at different sources to determine the actual city's name that I was conquering ingame and took advantage of the edit settlement name feature in the RSII launcher.
So far, I had added the cities in the area that the Roman Republic controlled around 44 A.D. I will try to keep settlement names as they were during Augustus' reign or during the reign of any Emperor whose reign was close to this era.
My plan is to have the names of settlements for the area that Rome controlled up until the Diocese era. I found that you, the player, can actually have accurate borders for the Diocese era of the Roman Empire.
I will be dividing the cities between 1) Regions and 2) East/West
Any city with a single asterisk[*] means that the city name is approximate and not definitive. Any city with double asterisk [**] has some sort of clarification (For example, settlement name may not fit within the era of the mod while there's no alternative).
Anyways, heres my work I do hope you enjoy.
Taurasia (Augusta Taurinorum)
Lepcis Magna (Leptis Magna or Lectis Magna) [All three variants are correct]
Arsa (Italica or Hispalis) [Can be either. City placement is so close. Based on river and maps, it's most likely Italica]
Caladunon (Portus Victoriae)
**Cenabum (Aurelianum) [This happened during reign of Aurelian way off into the 3rd century. Before that, Cenabum was a ruin]
**Vesontio (Augusta Raurica) [Actual settlement of Vesontio would be almost directly south and a bit left of the ingame city "Virodunon". Instead, Vesontio is almost directly to the left of "Virodunon". The ingame city of Vesontio is actually Augusta Raurica]
Thermos (Actium) [City placement approximate to Actium. Cannot find any historical references to an "Thermos". If anyone else knows, please let me know. Either way, Actium works due to city placement].
Sparte (Sparta or Spartae)
Heraclea (Heraclea Pontica) [Pontica was used to differentiate the different Heracleas in the area]
