acropolis → citadel (non-Greek fort), plateau (orography)

Authored by Gallaecio on Mar 31 2019, 4:36 PM.



There are some unaccurate usages of the word ‘acropolis’ in the game.

An acropolis is a citadel or high fortified area of an ancient Greek city ( When it is not Greek, we should call it citadel ( When we do not mean the fortress, but the high ground area, plateau is the right word for it (

I also considered renaming affected files accordingly, but the patch was huge and I could not upload it to Phabricator.

You're correct in stating there is a difference between "acropolis" (citadel) and "plateau" (geological feature); I can accept your changes to the "Decription": strings.
However, I disagree with your "Name:" string changes. Although acropoleis are typically Greek, the word can also be applied to similar features in similar cultures. There is no need to change the map names, therefore please revert those.

Something else, some descriptions have`\u000a\u000a`, others \n\n; I'm not sure which one is the preferred style.
