Maybe its a little too late to be posting this but ive been looking a way to make sure my brided general's children would have the same last name as their father.

The only topic, ive found anyway, is the link below:

http://rtw.heavengames.com/cgi-bin/forums/display.cgi?action=st&fn=1&tn=8093&st=recent

In this topic is being described how the "Surnames", for example the macedonians, can be pasted within the part of the greek "Surnames" within the file: descr_ names.txt.

After testing the results, they have come to the conclusion that it wont work...

Now ive been adding, besides all the Surnames of the roman families, all the Character names of the characters within the Roman familiy tree's, as described in the file: descr_strat, under the faction: greek_cities, ''characters'' and tested the result...





As you can see, my new born son of the bribed roman general has the same last name as his father

So to make this happen: add the Character names and the Surname of your bribed generals to your faction withing the descr_ names.txt file in the ''data'' folder.

For the greek, in particular, ive added the Surnames of the Roman families to the following sections:

;;of Town/City in Greek areas

;;of Sicily

;;;of Greek Region

This to make sure that it doesnt matter where my bribed roman generals come from / are bribed (i'm not really sure how it works), and still carry his father's name.

Hope this will help (and work for anybody else as well)...

Ps: sry for bad english, I'm better with math

Welcome to our forums Lubman! It's certainly not too late to put up new information about the game.

This is an interesting result, although to be expected. However, I can foresee one potential issue with the way in which you carried out the modification; when you get husbands or men of the hour, there's a reasonable chance they'll have one of the Roman or other names you added to the Greeks' list. Certainly not a game-breaking problem, but it could produce some interesting results

1)Did he done the editing before the campaign started.

2)I'm confused of his bribed general.the Bribe general should be the one Linked to the family Line not the Generals Wife.How does it happened that bribed general married one of your princesses.

3) What's the mechanism of marriage of Bribed and adopted gerneal? Its been awhile I bribed a general but I just adopted a son earlier and the adopted son married other girl not one of your princesses.

Bribed generals are brought into the family and often married to an unmarried female, effectively adopting the guy through marriage.

I could be wrong, but your screenshots seem to support that idea.
