Asia Diplomacy:

My main question is: Will this be denied from copywrite? It is very largely based off the map for EU4 (territories, Names and bonus values) so does this mean that I will need to get copywrite rights?

With this one, I want graphic help. I tried to make it look pretty but it ended up looking garish and confusing. At the top I probably will be adding superbonuses. I would appreciate any help with missing connections etc... For people who know latin, is the name spelt write? It should say unknown sea.

I like the second map - looks really nice, but as you allready mentioned there is still undeveloped potential due to the artwork. If it is still needed, I would be glad to offer assistance with the graphic design. =)

EDIT: I was told some time ago, that there is no issue with copyrights, when you use a graphic and change it. when you changed it, it belongs to you. Maybe it is plagiatism, but this shouldnt be a problem at all...

Looking good Obling. I'm pretty sure copyright isn't an issue. We aren't making any money from them either, if anything we are advertising for them.

The maps look nice.
I especially liked the map of Southeast Asia. You should change the name to East Asia because not all of Asia is on the map.

you wont get attacked for copyright, but fizzer might. if someone buys the "mega maps pack" theyll get your map, so technically someone could say hes making money off copyrighted material.

but until he gets a cease and desist order he wont reject any maps like this.

i mean theres a map thats just the budwiser logo

Thanks for the information on copywrite.
@Ranek Sorry but I want to make maps which are exclusively made by me. I'm sure you understand.

Also, should I add Japan and Indonesia to East Asia diplo (and also east Russia)?
