Hi, guys! Another lurker pops up!
It's good to read that things are going on, even if not as fast as desired. It's even better to know that your health is improving, Shannon. Thanks for all the work, seriously. You have some sure sells by us in Spain :)
If it is not too late or too annoying, I would like to add something to the names debate. IMHO, it would be nice and coherent to have all names written either in English or in their native languages, but not a mix of both. For example, in Spain we have Cádiz, Málaga and Almería in Spanish -even with their tittles-, but then there are Seville (Sevilla), Saragossa (Zaragoza), Majorca (Mallorca) and Minorca (Mallorca) in English.
Rivers would remain the same, except for Tagus, which translates to Tajo and the beautiful Duero -the most northern one- which just got no name.
Finally, Cantabrian Mountains would be Cordillera Cantábrica. Just for the laughs of hearing non-Spanish people trying to pronounce it, you should definitely change this one.
But, of course, if you do this in Spain, you would have to go through the whole planet to not disappoint anyone... :D
Anyway, hope it helps and thanks again for the mess you're in! We bear with you!
I agree it would be nicer and more coherent to have all names written either in English or in their native languages, but not a mix of both, but for Europe we mostly took the WiF FE maps names, without changing them.
Lyons was changed, as I though it was a better valid name in English, but maybe I was wrong and it should be written back to Lyon ? If so, the associated MIL unit should be renamed too.
(not so fast reply, sorry )
Let's leave Lyons as is. As I recall, changing it wasn't easy (it messed up saved games).
Perfection is an elusive goal.
