Thread: [Official Submod]Latin Faction Names for DeI 1.2

  1. #1

    Default [Official Submod]Latin Faction Names for DeI 1.2

    This submod changes all faction names to Latin, inspired by my Latin faction name mod for Attila. For when you're playing as the Romans and don't need to know what all the nations you're conquering actually call themselves. Some of the new emergent ones are still in English or other languages, as it's very difficult to find any kind of Latin source for those.

    This thread used to include my English faction names submod, but I've moved that to its own thread along with English unit names. You can find those here.

    Update Log:
    1/10/2017 - Remade the mod for DeI 1.2
    1/16/2017 - Fixed Corsica and Sardinia emergent factions
    5/22/2017 - Steam version updated for 1.2

    Before you ask, no I won't do all the unit names in Latin. And don't even think about asking for a full Latin localization. It can be done, but that sounds like a terrifying prospect.

    thank you. the names are a little too authentic for my tastes. I can't tell what a unit is unless I mouse over and read the tiny tooltip. that is really, really annoying. thank god the mod is save game compatible

    fear is helluva drug
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    “The only rule that ever made sense to me I learned from a history, not an economics, professor at Wharton. "Fear," he used to say, "fear is the most valuable commodity in the universe." That blew me away. "Turn on the TV," he'd say. "What are you seeing? People selling their products? No. People selling the fear of you having to live without their products." freakin' A, was he right. Fear of aging, fear of loneliness, fear of poverty, fear of failure. Fear is the most basic emotion we have. Fear is primal. Fear sells.” WWZ

    Have you had your daily dose of fear yet? craziii

    Unit names are finished. Check this thread for that. You don't need both mods if you want both faction and unit names, just Mavrik's.

    (My version is for the maybe one person other than myself who likes the English faction names but original unit names )

    Updated to fix Cyrenaica - I forgot that the Nasamones had been replaced by them.

    Default Re: [Submod]English and Latin Faction Names for DeI 1.0

    Update: Added a version with Latin faction names inspired by my similar mod for Attila, so you Romans don't have to learn other languages.

    Update to the Latin version: I decided to change Egypt and Macedon to their dynastic names so they're more consistent with the Seleucids.

    Updated both versions for DeI version 1.05.

    I can't find a Latin source referring to the Mauryan Empire, so I've just called that faction group "India" for now, which happens to be the same in Latin and English.

    I've called Taksashila "Taxila" in both versions of the submod. Again, it's near impossible to find a Latin source (unless someone can find me the 1406 Latin translation of Ptolemy's Geography ), but in Greek it's Taxila. The preferred spelling in English seems to be Taxila as well.

    Updated for 1.2.

    This thread is now only for the Latin faction names submod. You can find English faction and unit names for 1.2 in this new thread instead.

    I didn't know that you had a version of your Latin names mod for DeI. Sweet!

    Haha yep, I've got a vanilla Rome 2 one as well, hidden somewhere in the forums. Haven't updated that one in ages, but I haven't needed to anyway.

    Great, thank you! Too bad that the soldiers in the field can't speak Latin, like in EBII for example...

    Yeah, that's one of the reasons I play both EBII and DeI.

    It's not really needed. I already made a 1.2 update for it. But I do need to put it on Steam, that's all. I'll be doing that today.
