Follow-up Comment #6, patch #1350 (project freeciv): Alright, now I've reviewed the ruleset files. Comments follow below. A * indicates a change I've made, while a + indicates additional improvements needed before the nation can be accepted into mainline Freeciv.
Mordvin: +Requires at least three more leaders *Can only have one city style - chose European *Translated strings cannot have non-ascii letters - fixed one ruler title and added a trans comment *Changed one conflicting nation from Tatar to Soviet, which makes more sense in the context of the game Chechen: +It would be preferable if all names would be transcribed from Chechen language. Grozny for example is 'Гро́зный' in Russian and 'Соьлж-ГIала' in Chechen, while Dzhokhar Dudayev's full name in Russian is 'Джохар Мусаевич Дудаев' and 'Дудин Муса кант Жовхар' in Chechen. So there seems to be a significant difference. *Spelling of Chechnia -> Chechnya *Removed leader Ramzan Kadyrov since he's still alive *Changed city style Tropical -> European - the former is used mainly for nations from tropical regions ;) Tatar: *Added to European and Asian groups *Removed the part in the legend about being solely decedent from the Mongols: I believe their history is more complicated that this. ;) *Removed Mintimer Shaimiev since he's still alive. *Removed conflicts with the Poles and the Mongols: don't see why this is necessay? Bashkir: +The city names should preferably be transcribed from Bashkir language. The three top cities for example would be Öfö, Sterletamaq, Salauat (based on data from Wikipedia and transcription guidelines from http://www.omniglot.com/writing/bashkir.htm ) *Changed leader Sultan Murat -> Murat (since 'Sultan' is a title defined further down.) *Removed conflicting nations Mongol and Tatar, added Soviet Abkhaz: +Both Vladislav and Sergey are living persons - need to find historical replacements. ;) +Cities should be transcribed from Abkhaz language - the capital of Sukhumi is apparently known as 'Аҟəа' or 'Aqwa' in their native language. *Removed conflicting nation 'Turk' - the Abkhazians are not part of modern Turkey! Ossetian: +Lyudvig, Taymuraz, and Eduard are all living people - historical replacements needed. +Ossetic city names preferred: the capital of Vladikavkaz f.e. is known as Dzæudjyqæu (Cyrillic: Дзæуджыхъæу) in Ossetic according to Wikipedia. *Changed city style from Tropical to European. *Removed conflicting nation 'Turk' - not part of modern Turkey. Finally, all legends needed newlines (to appear correctly in the translation files) which have been added in attached version.
