Renaming of Australia

Wed Apr 24, 2019 6:25 am

Hello all,
It really rather winds me up that New Zealand is considered as part of Australia in Wars of Liberty. I live in New Zealand, and I have told other people. Their reactions ranged from looks of disbelief to "Really?" to foul language. May I suggest that the civilisation be renamed to the "Australasians" just to be fair? Australasia is the geographical region that encompasses Australia and New Zealand. The word "Australasia" was coined by the French writer Charles de Brosses in 1756, so it is chronologically appropriate.
Thank You For Your Kind Attention,
sirnori

you can't call it australiasia because it is not called australia in first place, they are called australians, in true neither civ is called as a contry-region, always is group of people, how you want to call'em? australasians?

also culturally that doesn't make any sense at all.

1. Yes, Australasians. I'll edit my proposal to make it a little more concise.
2. It doesn't culturally make sense that Australia and New Zealand are one civ, yet here we are.

Don't bother about this. The Maori will be at some point their own civ. It's true that now, it is weird to have maori units for the Australians.
Also: I like your signature a lot more now ;-)
