    Splenyi's Project - Realistic Names (v1.0 Released 15/04/2015)


    Modders; you can use this entire mod or any parts you wish, so long as you credit ALL the mod team and myself. Please ask for my permission. Pretty please.

    The goal of this mod is to rename all units, factions and place-names to something as authentic as possible, using native languages throughout. Current version only changes the first 2; place-names will come sooner or later.

    This pack file is in the "Mod" format, so what you need to do is extract and drop it into your data folder (default; C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Total War Attila\data), and use the built-in Mod Manager to activate it.

    What Does the Current Release Include?

    1.0 includes translated names and English translation in the short descriptions for all units except Germanic and Iberian at this time. Currently the translated faction names exclude Celtic, Belgic, Celtiberian, Iberian, some Arabic, and some Germanic.

    Credits

    All credit goes to these guys, the mod wouldn't have been possible without them. I just put their work into a mod. All Celtic is by me, and the Steppe units, so blame me for their quality

    - justme and Sephiroth91 for Hellenic and Latin

    - kambiz and his connections for Iranian and Georgian, and Steppe faction names

    - kikosemmek and Shigawire for Punic

    - Blitzkrieg80 and il Pitta for Germanic

    - L'aigle for his contribution to the Celtic in the previous version (though now replaced since v1.0)

    - Dontfearme22 for reconstructing Steppe units' names in the previous version (though now replaced since v1.0)

    - Tenerife_Boy for his continuous support and v1.0 pre-release feedback

    - Mitch and Daniu for creating the PFM

    Great stuff, some names are insane. See if you can do something with names of armies too 'Odysseus wanderers??' Sounds like a very dodgy 80's progressive rock band

    While that's not the goal of this mod, I can easily expand into that area once this is done. But first, unit names

    Some of the names are a little uninspiring it's true, like "light cavalry" for barbarian factions. Even just changing it to "light riders" or "light horsemen" would have made it sound a bit more interesting. At least the Roman units have proper names (for the most part) and actually have quite a nice roster with the soccii units and stuff.

    Personally, I find them appropriate. We are judging those names by today's standards, but I can easily imagine the armies or warbands calling themselves in such a pompous manner

    Looking forward to realistic names! They are certainly needed here.

    Exactly, we're so cynical today that any name like "Archers of Artimes" would be considered "cheesy", but in the time when it actually was part of culture, it would be considered an honorable name.

    Samnite armies in the prologue with Etruscan names are a mental rape to me. Do something, please

    Ok so I decided to do the Greek units first, here is what I've got so far:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    Agema Cavalry ---> Agema Hippeis
    Agrianian Axemen ---> still need to do...
    Aspis Companion Cavalry ---> Aspis Hetairoi
    Bronze Shield Pikemen ---> Chalkaspidai
    Citizen Cavalry ---> Hippeis
    Citizen Hoplite ---> Polis Hoplitai
    Companion Cavalry ---> Hetairoi
    Cretan Archers ---> Toxotai Kretikoi
    Foot Companions ---> Pezhetairoi
    Hellenic Cataphracts ---> Hellenikoi Kataphraktoi
    Helot Archers ---> Toxotai Heilotes
    Helot Javelinmen ---> Akontistai Heilotes
    Helot Slingers ---> Sphendonetai Heilotes
    Heroes of Sparta ---> still need to do...
    Hippeus Lancers ---> still need to do...
    Hoplites ---> Hoplitai
    Javelinmen ---> Akontistai
    Levy Pikemen ---> Levy Phalangitai (need idea for "Levy"...)
    Levy Thureos Spears ---> Levy Thureophoroi (need idea for "Levy"...)
    Light Cavalry ---> still need to do...
    Light Hoplites ---> Ekdromoi Hoplitai
    Light Peltasts ---> Light Peltastai (got any ideas...?)
    Militia Hoplites ---> Militia Hoplitai (need idea for "Militia"...)
    Peltasts ---> Peltastai
    Perioikoi Hoplites ---> Hoplitai Perioikoi
    Perioikoi Peltasts ---> Peltastai Perioikoi
    Perioikoi Pikemen ---> Phalangitai Perioikoi
    Perioikoi Spears ---> Thureophoroi Perioikoi
    Pikemen ---> Phalangitai
    Pontic Royal Cavalry ---> Pontikoi Basilikoi Hippeis
    Ptolemaic Cavalry ---> Ptolemaike Hetairoi
    Rhodian Slingers ---> Sphendonetai Rhodioi
    Hellenic Royal Cavalry ---> Basilikoi Hippeis
    Hellenic Royal Guard ---> Basilikoi Phalangitai
    Royal Peltasts ---> Basilikoi Peltastai
    Royal Spartans ---> Basilikoi Spartiatai
    Royal Thorax Swords ---> Basilikoi Thorakitai
    Sarissa Cavalry ---> Xystophoroi
    Scythed Chariots ---> still need to do...
    Shield Bearers ---> Hypaspistai
    Silver Shield Pikemen ---> Argyraspidai Phalangitai
    Silver Shield Swords ---> Argyraspidai Thorakitai
    Skirmisher Cavalry ---> Hippakontistai
    Slingers ---> Sphendonetai
    Spartan Hoplite ---> Hoplitai Spartiatai
    Spartan Pikemen ---> Phalangitai Spartiatai
    Spartan Youths ---> Epheboi Spartiatai
    Tarantine Cavalry ---> Hippeis Tarantinoi
    Thessalian Cavalry ---> Hippeis Thessalikoi
    Thorax Hoplites ---> Thorakites Hoplitai
    Thorax Pikemen ---> Thorakites Phalangitai
    Thorax Swords ---> Thorakitai
    Thureos Hoplites ---> Thureophoros Hoplitai (or Iphikratous Hoplitai...?)
    Thureos Spears ---> Thureophoroi

    There are so many units that I plainly do not like, or think they're not a good idea to have in the game (for design reasons). But, that isn't the point of this mod. This mod is to rename CA's units to something more historically accurate, that matches their own general design of that unit. There are a fair few that I'd like help with, and some that I just plainly don't know what to call them (eg. the Levy troops, because all units were levy... same with citizen troops, I renamed the Citizen Cavalry to plainly Hippeis, and Citizen Hoplite to Polis Hoplitai because plain Hoplitai was already taken).

    Thought I'd drop in and help with some info.
    Agema Cavalry ---> Agema Hippeis
    These seem to be referred to simply as Agema by the Seleucids.
    Agrianian Axemen ---> still need to do...
    I think these were simply referred to as Agrianoi.
    Foot Companions ---> Pezhetairoi
    Pezhetairoi is a most appropriate term for normal pikemen. We used Foot Companions for the elite Macedonian pikemen to mirror the Companion Cavalry. Asthetairoi (city companion) might be a better name for them.
    Heroes of Sparta ---> still need to do...
    Tricky as the Spartan elite guard were called Hippeis.
    Hippeus Lancers ---> still need to do...
    Xystophoroi is the name of the unit type this is based on.
    Light Cavalry ---> still need to do...
    Hippeis Lonchophoroi could be a good name to use (lonchophoroi meaning spearmen or javelinmen)
    Light Peltasts ---> Light Peltastai (got any ideas...?)
    These are based on the Euzonoi.
    Sarissa Cavalry ---> Xystophoroi
    These are based on the Sarissophoroi, Xystophoroi as a term seems to have been used for more heavily armoured cavalry.
    Scythed Chariots ---> still need to do...
    Drepanephoroi.

    Lusted just showed us the size of his balls by replying here.
    I have to say I'm impressed, also the mod seems worth a look

    Thanks for the input Jack
    These seem to be referred to simply as Agema by the Seleucids.
    I might keep it as Agema Hippeis, just for a clearer definition of what they are. Agema usually meaning "Royal Guard" or "Royal Cohort" (as Livy calls them). I actually didn't know this was an exclusive Seleucid unit though, thanks for that.
    Pezhetairoi is a most appropriate term for normal pikemen. We used Foot Companions for the elite Macedonian pikemen to mirror the Companion Cavalry. Asthetairoi (city companion) might be a better name for them.
    Seems as Pezhetairoi is a rather skeptical title, only ever used by one contemporary author (who was actually writing centuries after the events) describing Alexander's forces, I was rather reluctant to use it. Although, the definition behind the name suited what you guys called the "Foot Companions". Contemporary authors writing at the time refereed these pikemen as sarissaphoroi, phalangitai, hoplitai and plainly macedonians (as well as chalkaspides, argyspides, etc.), so they're the titles I'm more fond of. The definition of Asthetairoi is a little misty though, it can also mean "closest companion", depending on if you prefer Hammond's or Goukowsky's view.
    Tricky as the Spartan elite guard were called Hippeis.
    So that's what the Heroes of Sparta unit is based off? Thanks for the information I thought it was just a 300-themed unit
    Xystophoroi is the name of the unit type this is based on.
    These are based on the Sarissophoroi, Xystophoroi as a term seems to have been used for more heavily armoured cavalry.
    I'm not too fond of using the term Sarissophoroi either, because it just seems wrong (sarissa wielders); they used xyston. I might use it though, just because no other option exists. Are the Hippeus Lancers an Athenai exclusive unit?
    Hippeis Lonchophoroi could be a good name to use (lonchophoroi meaning spearmen or javelinmen)
    That's what I had in mind, or Prodromoi.
    I think these were simply referred to as Agrianoi.
    These are based on the Euzonoi.
    Drepanephoroi.
    Cheers for these I think it's official, you need more design authority at CA

    My recommendation for the more obscure linguistic factions (basically everyone who isn't Iranian, Greek, Celtic or Roman...maybe German too) is to stick with a lingua francia of either latin or Greek, or possibly either or depending on the circumstances. This being applicable to carthage, Numidians, arabs, africans, and so on.

    I don't suppose you could also do a brief thing with each release on how to pronounce things could you For example, is the x in "Xystophoroi" pronounced like it is in xenophobe?

    In case of the Seleucid i think it will need a bit more research. As far as i read the Seleucids had two Guard Corps of Cav (excluding the cataphracts for now). One was the macedonian/hellenistic Companion Cav. and the other was a guard corps of cav. consisting of persian nobles which was called Agema. The only unit where the Seleucids included persian ethnies by the way. As allready was written Agema is only a title which was used for royal guards so many diffrent units could wear it, but in case of cavallry i interpret it that is was the persian unit, while the hellenistic one was the Hetairoi.

    Proud to be a real Prussian.
