Like I said, the Americans sound like Dutchmen with Down Syndrome. These are proposed changes to the voices, assuming we have three variations for every accent.

American Marines
Spoiler:


---GENERAL AMERICAN ACCENT---
Select 1: Yes sir?
Select 2: Yes, commander?
Select 3: My orders, sir?
Move 1: Alright, sir.
Move 2: Moving position.
Move 3: I'm on the move.
Attack 1: Attack!
Attack 2: (rebel yell; it sounds like lasers in Star Wars whizzing by)
Attack 3: Oorah!



American Settler
Spoiler:


---GENERAL AMERICAN ACCENT---
Select 1: Yes, sir?
Select 2: Yessir?
Select 3: What can I do for you?
Move 1: I'm going, sir.
Move 2: I will be there soon.
Move 3: I'm going.
Attack 1: America!
Attack 2: (battle yell)
Attack 3: (sullen) Oh dear....
Foraging 1: I will be back with berries.
Foraging 2: Yes sir, I will go forage.
Foraging 3: Yes sir.
Hunting 1: My meat will feed our soldiers!
Hunting 2: I will go and hunt.
Hunting 3: I will be back with meat.
Woodcutting 1: I will be back with lumber.
Woodcutting 2: Of course, sir.
Woodcutting 3: This lumber will build fine ships!
Mining 1: I will be back with metals.
Mining 2: This iron will make great cannon!
Mining 3: Yes sir.
Farmwork 1: Yessir.
Farmwork 2: (hums)
Farmwork 3: It's back to the plow.
Construction 1: Yes sir.
Construction 2: Show me the blueprints.
Construction 3: Alright.

That's quite fine for the Frontiersmen, Miners, and cavalry.

Has anybody ever considered giving buildings voices (the voice representing a worker there, obviously)? Ships should have them, at least.

THE DUDE FROM NEVERLAND
Hell if I know.

Some of these are too long, like:

I'll be back with [resource]!
This [resouce] will make [product]!


You should reduce it to the core message, like "Yes sir, I will go forage" would be "I will (go) forage"

Really, it's a short sentence, but not short enough. You'll realize it when it's ingame Wink

I get your point. I remember this one Chinese (mercenary) sentence. It was way too much hearing it everytime I commanded my Manchurians to go fight.
