"To establish a single semantic or grammatical interpretation for"


In "Victoria - An Empire under the Sun", there are several provincenames that have been given to two seperate provinces, even some that have been given to three. How often have you traded for "Beaver", only to end up with the wrong one?


This mod aims to help that situation somewhat by adding disambiguation codes to the names of these provinces. This will not be reflected on the map itself, but should be reflected in all other places province names occur (state and province screens, ledger, unit destinations etc).



If you have the .rar-version, simply unpack it into your main Victoria-directory, the unpacker will place the "province_names.csv"-file in the config-subdirectory. If the unpacker prompts you if you wish to overwrite, answer "yes". If you unpack manually, simply place the province_names.csv in your VICTORIA\config-directory, overwriting the one already there.

To verify that it's in place, open VICTORIA\config\province_names.csv and search/scroll to the line starting with "PROV131;Portland"; it should look like:

PROV131;Portland (OR);;;;;;;;;;X

If that's the case, it's in place :-)

The disambiguation codes

Below are listed the codes that have been used. They have been chosen both to make sure that they are singular and hopefully intuitive. Unfortunately, some of the provinces in question are close, so the codes are in some cases a bit more obscure that desireable.

The codes are written in capital letters and placed in parenthesises in-game.
