    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.

    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.
