Issues changing road labels in region transit view (SimCityLocale editing)

Recommended Posts

Hello all - sorry for the newbie question but I've not been able to find a simple answer to my problem.
 
I'm trying to change the names of the transit types on the transport region view map (The key in the bottom right: Highways, Avenues, Roads etc.). I've been editing the SimCityLocale file in Reader. However nothing I change in SimCityLocale is showing up in game. Regardless of whether I place the file in Plugins or just save changes to the one in the base SC4 directory (I have the Steam version).
 
So far I've been:

  • Opening SimCityLocale with Reader.
  • Find -> Find in Files
  • Ticking 'Ltext'
  • Searching for the transport type by Text ('Avenues', as an example)
  • Changing and applying the entry to my word of choice.
  • Saving the file
  • Closing Reader
  • Launching Sim City 4 -  No change to be seen.

In addition to this I've tried it with an empty Plugins folder to ensure there's no conflict.
 
I've used the  on its own successfully changes 'Highways' to 'Motorways'. But it still doesn't work when I then edit the mod's custom replacement SimCityLocale file to edit the others.
 
Finally, I tried looking at the files from the  but although it does mention road captions with customised labels, the mod itself doesn't change the names in game - and I don't think it's supposed to; it just changes the colours. 

 

I've run out of bright ideas. Anyone able to help? 

 

Thank you!
