Hey all -- love this game to death, but my incredibly immersive and entertaining run as Egypt is spoiled somewhat by all my generals having Persian names. It's just really lame and feels like something that would be very easy to fix. Ditto for Babylon.

I would easily do it myself if I knew how -- is it a text document somewhere? And if not, do you think you guys could patch it? It's bothersome.

Actually - checking the data, there is a leader group for Egypt only, and it was not used! So I can certainly add that to the patch.
Babylon uses the Semitic leader group.

Great! I figured as much because the pharaoh names are pitch perfect. Looking forward to it and thanks for replying!

Keep it up. I am stoked for the next dlc -- this one was fantastic!

Indeed. Did you encounter pharaoh Usermaatre? A strange name when read with our modern mind! Hope he had administrator privileges...
