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.

Could you give me the map to me, a copy without the layers just the provinces only?

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.

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.

Remember the editor map and the background map must be the same sice. you must scale it 😉

Also, about the poll... I don't know what do you mean with less detail, are you making a 10kx12k Map? then yes tho idk

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.

well. about provinces, i recommend you doing the background for the editor basing on the maps found in omniatlas.com. It is a project about doing super-realistic maps of the world. Europe maps start in 1815 so there are no maps about the middle ages, you will have to take them from other sources, but it has the best maps about WWI and WWII. Specially don't use Geacron, it was made for political reasons.

In omniatlas there are europe maps about the roman empire with their provinces. Currently work in progress.

If names in the map bothers you zoom in with the ctrl+scroll

      I'm sure you dreamed about this scenario! But why  i put scenario in mods category? Read this:
      Cześć! Jest to mój pierwszy projekt na tej stronce do modów, akurat do AoCII. Ostatnio miałem taki malutki przebłysk:
      "Dużo ludzi pisze że potrzebuje kogoś to pomocy przy robieniu wydarzeń, a ja umiem je robić od samego początku nawet te zaawansowane!" Więc naszła mnie myśl aby stworzyć scenariusz dzisiejszej europy ale każdy kraj będzie miał oryginalne drzewko. Takie podobne do tego jakie są w Hearts of Iron 4 ale oczywiście inaczej wyglądające. Projekt zaczołem dziś czyli 17 maja a skończe go pewnie za pare tygodni (przy dobrej pracy ok. 2). Oczywiście później wyśle wam zdjęcia związane z przebiegem prac i będziecie mogli popatrzeć na moją męke 😄 Informuje już teraz że nie będe odpisywać na komentarze pod projektem przez okres prac ale będe je przeglądać. Jak ktoś będzie chciał zobaczyć jak wyglądają drzewka kraji to wyśle je jako zdjęcia. Dziękuje i życzcie mi miłych prac bo jak nie to dodam wydarzenie do drzewka niemiec "Powrót Rzeszy".
      English:
      Hey! This is my first project on this page for mods, just for AoCII. Recently I had such a tiny flash:
      "A lot of people write that I need someone to help me make events, and I can do them from the very beginning even the advanced!" So the thought came to me to create the script of today's Europe but each country will have an original tree. So similar to what they are in Hearts of Iron 4 but of course looking different. I started the project today, 17 May and I will finish it in a few weeks (with a good job approx. 2). Of course, later I will send you photos related to the course of work and you will be able to look at my torment: I am now informing you that I will not reply to comments on the project for the duration of the work, but I will review them. If someone wants to see what country trees look like and they will send them as photos. Thank you and wish me nice work because if not I will add the event to the German tree "Return of the Reich".
      I used google translate so sorry for the mistakes!
      Here i will tell you about every news and updates of this mod:
      0.1 Alpha - Iceland and Denmark have trees from now!
      0.2 Alpha - Norway and Ireland have trees from now!
      0.3 Alpha - Spain have problems with Catalonia from now! Poland have deals with Belarus too.
