I made some minor changes on Austro-Hungarian map. Shared the too long Délvidék bonus and add 2 new bonus: Bácska and Bánság. Also some changes on Alföld and Dunántúl as well. I hope you will like the new changes and find the map better.

Pending to public:

Not just for improve the gameplay but for the better historical accuracy too. Backa and Banat were the traditional cultural and historical units of the region.

Bihac -> Bihać
Modrus-Fiume -> Modruš Fiume

and maybe

Zagrab -> Zagreb
Varasd -> Varaždin
Belovar-Korosz -> Bjelovar-Križevci
Verocze -> Virovitica
Pozsega -> Požega
Szerem -> Srijem
(you can keep names on Hungarian or rename into Croatian names, also if you want, I could give you names of Croatian coastal cities)

But there are croatian cities in Küstenland, Krain, and Steiermark too. I used there german names as in all countries of the austrian crown, instead of croatian, slovenian, italian, german, czech, slovakian, polish, ukrainian names. And used hungarian names in all countries of the hungarian crown, instead of croatian, serbian, romanian, ukrainian, slovakian, german, and hungarian names. It was the easier solution :)

ok, but i thought it would be good idea because Croatian was the only official language of Croatia, and it was like a 'country inside a country'... Oh well, it's your map ;)

But atleast do Bihać change...

Yeah it was a country, otherwise the 'ország' means 'country' (horvátország = croatian country), but I think it was not a 'country inside a country' rather a 'country inside a crownland'. As you can see the croatian flag between the coat of arms of the countries under the royal crown. Bohemia was also a country under the imperial crown.

The problem is if I change the names of territories into croatian ones then I should change the serbian, bosnian, slovenian, italian, czech, slovakian, polish, ukrainian, romanian territory names as well. First of all I dont know all of this, but this is just the smaller problem, hard to decide which county get which name, many of them were multilangual.

(in the previous version the croatian country had 3 more counties but I united the 3 slavonian county with 2 hungarian counties to make the Bácska region)

If you're updating the map, why not fix the borders as well?

I dont know how. This was my first map and I removed the gaps with 'outset' tool. Now if I use an 'inset' the gaps become searious. Later I fixed the borders manually by moving nodes but in here is very hard to fix manually.

If you know an easy to fix magic trick what can work here dont hesitate to share with me :)

As a matter of fact, I do. It still requires time, but less time than moving them node by node.

1:
Draw the line where you want to make the bonus border.

2:
Set the line width to 0,8 pixels wide. Then select it and press CTRL+ALT+C.

3:
Select the line, duplicate it (CTRL+D), hold shift, select the line and any neighbouring territory, press CTRL+-.
This will put the border at the exact right spot. Do it for all territories.

4:
Upload the new file to the WL editor, and make sure to move the centerpoints where neccesary.
