How do I customize star names in Galactic Civilizations III? Ideally, I would like to use real star names if possible. I tried altering
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Galactic Civilizations III\data\English\Text\StarNamesText.xml
but that did not seem to work, even when I copied the altered file to
For testing, I just did a simple find-and-replace on KATE to replace "<String>" with "<String>X " (X followed by space followed by default star name). Unfortunately, none of the stars generated seemed to have the new altered names.
I noticed however that some stars appear in the game that do not appear in <StarNamesText.xml>, such as "Assembly." So it appears that Galactic Civilizations III is getting the star names from somewhere else?
I have Galactic Civilizations III Gold with all expansions and DLC (just purchased a few days ago during the Steam summer sale) on 64-bit Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise.
