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:
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
Greetings to you, dear creators!
I am happy to report that russian community present you an improved version of the map editor, which differs from the usual one in that this version does not need to constantly restart the editor and manually rename the province files. This innovation will significantly reduce the time spent on creating a map and save your nerves.
Installation: Download the archive attached to the post, unpack it to any folder and... start working! To launch the editor simply activate the file Age_of_Civilizations_Map_Editor.jar. You can find out how to delete all default provinces and create a map from scratch in the article attached below. this method also works with this editor.
If you want to insert your existing map into the new version of the editor, just download this file, rename the file format to jar and move it to the folder with your editor, and then work in it through this file.
We wish you a pleasant use and we hope that you'll appreciate our new editor
Hey guys, Beter here.
I would like to say that I'm working on a map based off of the one in Hearts of Iron 4!
It will feature the two scenarios in the game along with many others that I like to make!
I expect it to come out within a month but no promises!
Provinces: probably 10000+
Scenarios planned: 1936, 1939, Modern Day
Latest progress update:
I lost the data so I will reset the development

Part I: the invasion of Croatia
The Roman Empire spanned from 27BC to 476 AD, and for the eastern half, to 1453 AD. It was the first country that you could consider Italy. Since then, Italy had been divided for 1,390 years longer. That was, until, the Kingdom of Italy was founded. Then, Mousillini hijacked it and tried to restore the great empire of the past. He was unsuccessful. Since then, no attempts to restore Rome had been made. That was until a 39 year old Italian man named Giovanni Belino won the 2017 election. He campaigned for a restoration of mare nostrum, or as he called it, Nova Roma. He had won the election getting 61% of the popular vote.
On January 10 2018, Belino had begun his first term. He took control of a corrupt and economically unsound nation. It's current situation wasn't all that great, but Roman restoration was far from impossible, as Trump had disbanded NATO a few months back. It was time to get to work.
First, the taxes were soared up. This made people unhappy, but they stopped caring after a couple weeks. Belino also called technolagy "The best path" and brought it up well.
Belino immediately ordered the army to prepare a naval invasion of Croatia. According to a poll, about 58% of the people objected to this act at the time, seeing it in ways that range from cruel to jumping too fast. Either way, 90% of the army followed his orders while the rest stayed home.
By March, the Italian army was ready to invade Croatia at a moments notice. At this time, only 31% of people opposed his decison as he faked an insult from Croatia. Croatia tried to deny it but it was too late
It was time for the beginning of Nova Roma.
Soldiers were then ordered to pour in along the Croatian coast. The Croatian government was in chaos, fearing annexation. Their fears were correct.
The First Regiment quickly ran over Istria, while Those invading Rjeka were captured and taken prisoner, although they did knock most of the Croatian army there out.
While south Dalmatia was also steamrolled, the Third Italian Regiment was too narrowly destroyed by the Croatians. It was clear that reinforcments were needed.
After a massive Croatian army recaptured Istria, Belino raised the Sixth Italian regiment from Pescara. They invaded the Rjeka area. By this time, war fever was in full force.
The Italian army, despite losing nearly half of their army, was successful, capturing Rjeka and surrounding areas.
What they did not expect, although, was for the army that steamrolled Istria to return, a move that destroyed the Sixth Italian Regiment.
This really turned on the war fever, as Belino recruited nearly 5,000 volunteers from Pescara alone. They were ready to attack just as 81% of Italians supported the war.
A week later, Croatia tried to invade through Pescara. This won't end well for them!
Unsuprisingly, they were repelled. Belino then ordered the Seventh Italian Regiment to invade from Istria.
And the plan worked.
An invasion of Rjeka then commenced.
This then was forwarded to Dalmatia and also straight towards the capital, Zagreb.
The Croatian government fleed, exiling to Hungary. Now, the capital was captured, all that was needed was to occupy the east of the country.
And so, the entire rest of the country collapsed. Belino made a speech in occupied Croatia to not worry and that they will all be fine as long as they accept their new cause.
And with that, the entire country was occupied.
The Croatian government-in-exile reluctantly agreed to their countriy's entire annexation.
And so, the war was over. After about six months of fighting, the nation of Italy had annexed Croatia.
