I've just completed a more detailed map of Scandinavia, because I couldn't find any good ones, I'd be very grateful if people would look it over for me. This is my first map.

Thanks for the help if you provide it.

Update:
Version 1.0: Release
Version 1.1: Removed defective territory, fixed a few missing connections
Version 1.2: Territories smoothed out, 10 or so missing connections fixed. Added lines connecting the Vester Alen Islands to the nearby Norwegian territories

If you're going to lump Finland in Scandinavia, you might as well put Kola and Karelia in it as well. But a better solution would be https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fennoscandia. Also, the map looks good, but we already have a couple of maps of the Scandinavia+Fennoscandia.

A big map of Sweden would be nice, but this looks pretty good

@Жұқтыру But those aren't actually parts of Finland, and are rather parts of Russia. The commonly accepted definition for "Scandinavia" is Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark. The "couple of maps of Scandinavia" are tiny, which is why I made this one.

@TheThedde I'll put that on the list for other projects.

You need to simplify your territories.

North Oulu - North Central Russia

1. Nods?
2. Here is the map I used, I just followed what I thought best, many of the regions are named for large cities in them. http://map1-europe.com/map1608962_0_0.htm
3. What does that do?

Thanks for the suggestions

1. Nods are those little grey dots that make up a shape. Clicking on that shape, you can delete or move those Nods as you please.

3. Ctrl - L simplifies the territories. Clicking on a territory and pressing Ctrl L. Will decrease the detail of the territory and how rigid the lines are. Try it out on a territory, remember you can always 'Undo'.

I still don't understand Nods

Well I can't explain better than that. You know when you click on a shape in Inskape (assuming you're using this software) and all those grey small boxes come up - they are called "Nods". It doesn't really matter what you call them. Have you tried simplifying yet?

Simplifying made it look way better. What do you want me to do with the Nods? (I get what you mean now)

You don't need to do anything with Nods. It was just another (much longer) alternative to simplifying

I still think that you should have Fenno-Scandia and Scandinavia as seperate boni. https://uk.wikipedia.org/wiki/Файл:Map_of_Scandinavia.png I suggest that you read up a bit on Scandinavia vs Fenno-Scandia vs Nordic Countries. Also, Fenno-Scandia does include Karelia and Muramsk. But if not, I also recommend some name changes. Don't do boring names.

Southwestern Russia to Sosnovyj Bor
South Central Russia to Pitkäranta
North Central Russia to Kostomuska
Subarctic Russia to Sofporog
West Muramsk - Muramsk
East Muramsk - Kola Penninsula

Also, consider changing Subarctic Russia bonus to Russian Karelia. And making a Russia bonus.

Also, it's Åland islands, not Aland islands. S

And finally, Scandinavia (Medium) has about the same amount of territories as this map.

But I think that your map, with work, could be better in quality. For example, I like that you put labels for the bodies of water.
