Been wanting to do this for a while. What I did was replace all of the UK names with African names. Mostly Igbo (Nigerian) names but some Arabic ones in there too as well as others. Heavily trends West African obviously since most players who play college come from there more than anywhere else.

I originally switched the Chinese names, but since so few of those are generated seemed the UK ones made more sense. Anyway, hope you enjoy it.

Unfortunately, it says UK. That's hard coded and I can't change it. Though I have gone in game before and changed their nationalities to Nigeria or whatever country and it's usually allowed it. Though I try not to mess with it, because I can't tell if it'll cause us some other problems. It's a minor issue in terms of it being "UK" since it's sort of realistic due to immigration from African nations to the UK.

Hopefully, down the road HR will allow us to import from foreign nations besides the ones in-game.

Oh ok. Yeah it'd sure be nice to be able to customize nations...but the fact that you can change it anyways (at least from a commissioner's standpoint, which is the way I play), makes it just fine. Having african names to choose from helps alot though....you could actually just merge the african names onto the uk names and just manually change it when the name is obviously african. I think that's what I'm gonna do.
