New Continent Names Better Names

There are too many default continent names in Civ VI that sound far too similar to one another. This replaces all of them with a list of names taken from existing Civ text entries.

New Continent Names
Using what I considered the most "continenty-sounding" entries from CitizenNames_Text.xml the list is:
  • Agacia
  • Bahiti
  • Cantara
  • Daxia
  • Electra
  • Florida
  • Garanda
  • Hypatia
  • Inessa
  • Jumo
  • Kashiya
  • Leipoxis
  • Magdalena
  • Nevada
  • Ortensia
  • Pelagia
  • Qiaolian
  • Radcliff
  • Savatari
  • Thyra
  • Utkarsh
  • Virginia
  • Wigstan
  • Xavier
  • Yanlin
  • Zinaida

If you'd rather put in your own names, try the Civ VI Continent Names Editor[].

Tested and confirmed to work with R&F.

I can see that for some people it's not just a matter of having easily distinguishable names, but to have true continent-sounding names. Only not everyone agrees on what sounds like a continent name. So I've decided to let you decide for yourself. I've written a utility that allows you to put in your own continent names, the Civ VI Continent Names Editor []. Be sure to unsubscribe from this version of the mod before running it.

The real life names ruin this, but perhaps they can be removed? I like the fantasy names, like Rodinia, but I hate the ones from real life, like Asia, and South America.

"Nevada," "Florida," "Virginia," "Electra?" I thought these names were supposed to be better. It seems like you're trying to recreate the Civ 6 world as United States with electricity. Destroy those names, and this mod will be semi-adequate.

What about fantastical names like Lemuria, Mu, Atlantis, or one's from fable like Hybrazil and Thule. Too fantastical?

Appreciate the idea, as I am inordinately bothered by Australia/America the civilizations spawning in a world with Australia/America the continent, but being nowhere near one another. How did you make this? Or, rather, what file did you edit? I can't seem to find the XML that contains the continent name choice list. Is it just Maps.xml? Changing that one hasnt had any effects for me, but I'm terribly new to modding.

@Goat, it should work for multiplayer but I haven't tested it. Let me know if there's any problems.
