This is a mod for various strategy games, that makes province names change their name dynamically, to one that fits the culture of the faction that controls them.

It first started in 2016 for Crusader Kings 2 (with HIP), and grew ever since both in size and in game coverage.

In the common database (for all the supported games), there are currently over 100.000 names for over 820 languages, themes and time periods.

The names are meant to provide an immersive and authentic experience for the game's setting and time period.
However, if there are no names for a specific language for this context, names from other time periods, or even from very closely related languages, will be used instead, as long as they make sense and are a good fit.

The mod is OS-agnostic, which means that it will work on all of the operating systems supported by the game.

It is actively tested (and developed) on Linux, where it is guaranteed to work with either the native version of the game or through Steam Play.

It is also save-game compatible, and can be added and removed at will without breaking anything.


Manual installation:
- Download the latest release
- Extract the contents into your game's mod directory

For more information, as well as compatibility reports with other mods, check the pinned Compatibility thread in the Discussions tab.

The current development focus and roadmap can be found here.

The mod is being actively developed and is growing continuously.
Furthermore, any new names added to it are automatically ported to all of the other supported games that can use them.

@hori I wonder how do you add names quickly? I want to make new cultures and I don't want to be adding names till the eternity.

@Roofus a total of 4954 landed titles have roman localisations

How much Roman localization is in this mod?
Incredibly well-made. A tad headache-inducing, as well.
