To change the faction names you will have to edit the following files in the Data\text folder:

strat.txt - Contains the victory/defeat messages
shared.txt - Contains the faction names themselves
expanded.txt - Sets the faction name for agents, settlements, etc... on the Strat Map, as well as in event messages.
expanded_bi.txt - Does the same.
campaign_descriptions.txt - The descriptions you see when selecting a faction at the beginning of a campaign.
menu_english.txt - Contains faction name you see in the menus.

Note: You MUST NOT edit the names on the left in the curly brackets{}. These are hard-coded entires that the game uses as pointers, while the actual text it displays is to the right.

Oh, and moved to Game Modification forum.

Jonny 5: HeavenGames does not take a kind attitude to bashing other countries and ethnicities. This may surprise you, but some members of this forum are French, and they have every right to come here without being insulted.

You are new, so I understand that you are not familiar with the etiquette expected of people here. That is why I am not giving you a Warning, this time. Instead this is a quiet word, off the record. Read the HeavenGames Code of Conduct and take it to heart. I would hate to have to put your name here

Really? it still looks like its here...
Doh!
