    Once I finish the mod and upload the map, I'll let you guys make scenarios for it and upload them on here. That's the kind of community help I'm planning on implementing.

    Had a ton of work but I'm balancing everything again. I should be pretty much untouched until I finish this now since I'm fairly well organized. I've nearly finished the background map aswell as the province map is finished (Although the provinces might alter slightly to fit the background map better) Expect an Alpha/Beta of some sort in June.

    I'm in the progress of drawing a background map for the game.

    Actually shouldn't take too long as I have the province map finished, it's just copying the map I'd put under it which isn't too bad.

    Project is going along nicely. I just decided to keep quiet until I can drop one big update with a good chunk of the map done. I have fully finished Poland and moved on to Slovakia, Northern Italy and Southern France.

    That could probably be a nice idea. Since it's a pretty small area I would include a good chunk of China aswell probably.

    Welcome to the Greater Europe Map project. My long term goal is to have a Europe with a ton of provinces, because why have America, Africa and Asia, when you can have a hell of a lot of provinces in Europe?
    My main focus in this mod is to add a lot of provinces while still keeping country borders and local borders at least kind of accurate. For example, Ireland has it's 32 counties. 
    Right now the mod is in it's in-game stage, where I'm adding all of the provinces into the game.
    All of the resources added in this mod were created by me! The province map and the background map were both made by me.
    Here is the download link to the files needed:
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/15c5S6X6ohjgY4Bclc_PyF1FuytF-xGjW?usp=sharing
    You need to put these folders and file in:
    C://Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Age of Civilizations II/map
    (or wherever your aoc II folder is downloaded, you just drop them all in /map)
    It is still very buggy since I am doing the mod all by myself. If you know how you can fix a bug or have any tips, make sure to tell me!
    Current Version: 0.75

    Province map is basically done, I forgot to do Northern Africa so while I make the background map I'm finishing Africa off.

    I know a lot of people think that Bloody Europe II is either superior to this mod or the bigger brother but (from what it seems) Greater Europe will have way more provinces, while trying to stay as close to real life country divisions as possible. For example, all 32 Irish counties are on the map.
    I only have respect to Suzema for making such a massive map and finishing it so quickly, but just because he finished his mod already doesn't mean I will abandon mine!
    If the community is passionate enough about this project, I'll keep working on it.

    The original province map was 15,000 by 10,000 pixels, I am making the background map at 7,500 by 5,000 pixels. All the provinces are still large enough at 3,500 by 2,500 but anything under that starts screwing up smaller provinces like San Marino, Vatican, Monaco and Liechtenstein. Once the background map is finished, I'm going to copy the province map into it and I'll use that for the editor. I'll use the province-less version for the actual game.
    This all means that the province map and background maps can be anywhere between 15000x10000 and 3500x2500, with the only difference being a drop in detail (if it's lower) or a drop in performance (if it's higher). For comparison, the current in-game background map is smaller than 2000x1000, and it doesn't seem to be a problem.

    Added a poll feeling that most people would be tired of still waiting for this mod after a year of development.
    Also, here's a screenshot of the work-in-progress background map. I'm drawing it at 1/2 of the resolution of the province map to save time & make the game run smoother, and in the end it should still look good.
    I have a few layers of different maps (Height maps, Rivers, etc.) and I draw under them.
    Sorry for the slow progress of the mod over the past year, it's my first proper mod and I don't put all my time into it as I am a very busy person. Nevertheless, over the next week as I am free of school and work, I will hopefully finish the province & background map and I will start putting in the provinces in the editor. I am confident that I will have a playable version of the mod (even if it's only a small demo!) in May, if not earlier.

    If I wanted a complete province map I'd have to stitch one from the different layers I have in place. Right now I had to backtrack and work on drawing a map of Europe since I realized that I can't be using my province map as the background in-game and that I'll have to draw the provinces from the province map onto an actual geographical map of Europe ://. This will take some time but still it shouldn't take extremely long, like the province map itself did.
