Great Prophet Historical Names (BNW or GK)

In 1 collection by Tomatekh
Tomatekh's Historical Religion Mods

Adds historical names to the Great Prophet unit similar to other Great People.

This mod is also included within my Historical Religions Complete (BNW & GK) mod.


Currently a Great Engineer spawns with a historical name such as 'Nikola Tesla', whereas the Great Prophet always spawns as 'Great Prophet'. With the mod, the Great Prophet will spawn with a historical name such as 'Moses'.

In order to create a more full and varied list, similar to Civ IV, I interpreted Great Prophet more liberally than just founders of religious denominations (their function in-game). As such, the list also includes significant or well-known theologians and saints, as well the more secular interpretations of a prophet.

No offense is intended to any religion, and names were chosen to represent a wide range of religions both ancient and modern. If you are potentially offended by seeing the name of your or other religious figures appearing in the game, please do not download.

Requires either the Gods and Kings or the Brave New World expansions.

Thanks @tomatekh. I had only added them to one of the files, which I guess is why it didn't work.

Thanks again for all your hard work. I really enjoy your mods.

You would need to add an entry to both the "Great Prophet Names.xml" and "Great Prophet Names Text.xml" files (both of which can be found in the "XML" folder of the mods files.

If you look at both files you should be able to use them as an example on how to add new entries. For example, the first entry in both files is used to add the name Moses to the list.

"Great Prophet Names.xml" first adds an entry that associates a TXT_KEY with the Prophet unit, and then "Great Prophet Names Text.xml" defines that specific TXT_KEY to have the text "Moses".

Hi @Tomatekh! Sorry if you've answered this elsewhere, but is there a way to add some names to this mod? I found a couple of text files in the relevant folder but I'm not sure which, if any, will affect my game (and I'm not asking you to add them to the mod itself because they're largely either fictional or very obscure - it's just for my own entertainment really)

@anvil2011: Actually the Aryan Myth cult was a creation of Himmler. They appropriated concepts from other religions and more or less believed "IF I THINK IT LOOKS COOL, THEN ARYANS MADE IT. FOR REELS YO."

Does it have Hitler for the Arian religion?
