0 A.D. currently uses the term "Italiote" [sic]. It's best to use precise language:

  • Italic refers to a branch of Indo-European and the peoples that speak it (cf. Celtic).
  • Italian refers to the modern language, descendant from Latin, the people that speak it, and their country (cf. Romanian).
  • Italiot (from Ἰταλιώτης) refers to Greeks living in Italy (cf. Cypriot).

From the context it's clear what 0 A.D. actually means (Samnites etc.) is Italic.

This patch therefore:

  • Corrects the art file names.
  • Also renames the other embassy icons for consistency (cf. D2551).
  • Corrects the embassy template file name.
  • Adjusts the affected templates, AI, and map file.
  • Deletes the unused Celt, Iberian, Italian classes.
  • Updates the embassy template tooltips (cf. D2578) and cart.json civ file entries.
  • Orders the <Identity> node in the templates as specified in Identity.js.
Test Plan

Check for competeness and correctness. Effectively everything should work as before.

Swapped Iberian and Italic embassies to reflect build order, for consistency with the structure tree.

On request by angen

I don't have a strong opinion on this. art changes are okay for me. I'm only wondering if it shouldn't be iber_ rome_ and celt_ / gaul_ instead of iberian italiote and celtic, but I'm fine either way. Checkrefs is happy.


I guess we should have a rule for those at some point... Most of the time they are hardcoded because they match animations but there is "Base", "Title Case", "Normal case" not worth a patch though.

This line needs to be rebased.
Basically remove unused Celt, Iberian, and Italic classes.
