Mappa Mundi

Mappa Mundi adds >15,000 unique place names to greatly increase the variety within your games.

Mappa Mundi includes the option to enable Colonial names for European civilizations. This option is disabled by default. You can enable it by editing the UserConfig_MappaMundi within the mod folder and changing the following line:
("UseColonialNames", 0); ---> ("UseColonialNames", 1);

Alternate Download
Current and past versions can be accessed from here[].

The primary source for this mod is Wikipedia, and the place names were scraped using a Python script. I am confident that I have removed 99% of erroneous names, but please report if you see any which obviously should not belong (example: "Deserts of Australia").

Mod Support
Note: Currently this mod completely replaces the NamedPlaces tables. I am happy to add in further support for modded civilizations. Mods which do not have included support will still work with Mappa Mundi, they will just pull place names from the general pool rather than from their own specific pool of names.

This mod also includes varying levels of out-of-the-box support for the following mods:
  • Anno Domini (rob8xft) - all civilizations
  • Assyria (Chrisy)
  • Akkad (Civitas)
  • Armenia (Civitas)

Hi, first of all this mod is greater than great and a must have for all civ players. I do have a question though. Where can I find the modfolder for Mappa Mundi? I want to enable colonial names for European civs, but cant find the modfolder/file.
Thanks in advance!

Ah la belle époque!

This is a great mod, thank you for your efforts. Here are my suggestions and observations: JFD Chile Mod requires significant name support especially for bays and deserts. Secondly, constant name updates would become far less necessary were there a way for individuals to edit them in game and create their own names or correct others.

I would love to name some areas myself to change the flair of real world names. Is it possible to name self-chosen area of tiles?

It's throwing an error when I try to play with the Terra map.

You can copy Sukritact's Gaulish geographic names to NFP's Gaul.

Like someone else reported Kick 'Em Jenny has a bad character. Needs fixing. Otherwise this is a nice mod in theory.

@msargent764 Yes it works but there are some character/text issues.

Do you have to do something after subscribing to the mod? It's not doing anything after downloading.
