Is it possible to change the existing Asia maps name to "far east"?


Heh, no, existing maps can't be changed without mapmaker's permission.

Is it possible to change the existing Asia maps name to "far east"? Failing that I suggest "Asis" or "Siana" Both ancient names for Asia.

I already spoke with lack, and he doesn;t want to rename the existing Asia map, even though I suggested that Asia: Far East would work nicely :P

Would Asiana work? It follows the Europa naming convention, even if it doesn't sound right.
Asiatica? It also doesn't quite sound right.

Perhaps this might spark some ideas...

Yeah, no one ever actually calls it that.
How about "Greater Asia"? Doesn't really mean anything particular but people will know what it means.

Greater Asia sounds good.

Or how about Azio, the esperanto word for Asia ;)

Or how about simply Orient?

Or, Oriens, latin word for east.

I'm still in favor of Asiatica... I think it sounds nice and kind of fits with the Europa theme.

There's always Asia II

That's an adjective, is the problem. 'Europa' is the continent's name in Latin and various other languages, but its equivalent for Asia is 'Asia'.

How about 'Asia 2010'? Perhaps banking on some revolution or drastic political change some time within the next 17 months.

I'd steer away from Orientalism in general.

There aren't many good options---save perhaps something like this. Our current, old Asia map renamed to Asia: Far East. Then this map can be Asia: Something else. But even this idea, I'm not sure if it is a good one.

Asia New World doesn't make any sense and is just confusing. I'm still suggesting Asis. Short of that Asian Countries or Asia 2010
