Map is almost finished. I need to let people look over it to find mistakes.

It is basically is a newer version of this:

It is however more to my tastes (yea, people who play EU4 not on the political map only exist!).

Why did you make the borders so ugly? They are drawn so rough.

The 90° angles everywhere. It looks very unnatural for a historical oriented map.

Agree, but it didn't start from nothing. It's a new edition of an existing map - is it better than the already existing version?

Well it is based on a computer game that uses pixel maps instead of vector graphics. Of course the conversion to an svg would be rough. Sure, i *could* have done it with an actual world base map - but for that i don't have the time, you wanna pay me for that, lol?

Perhaps you could do more to it to make it look more like the video game then, if that's the style?

Or ... just leave it as it is and be fine with that. I have no idea how long it would take to redo the map, so if it accomplishes the goal you're looking for, leave the aesthetics as is and just publish it, fix connections, etc, as identified in any testing you do.

I was not asking for a redo. I have done maps myself before, I know the pain of it. I merely asked why they did it so pixely. They answered the question, so now I am happy.
Have a nice day, fellow forum posters.

Somehow even worse. I would strongly prefer you to add nation bonuses (this time for every country, for example Muscovy's vassals didn't get a seperate bonus in the old map) or expand the map.

That would be impratical in Germany

Yeah I agree with Cata Cauda, the borders are too pixelated looking, but it's too late to fix them now since the map is practically finished.

I would recommend desaturating the background colours. That bright yellow and cyan could be a strain on the eyes or cause potential mix-ups with player colours.

Very much so. If you could desaturate or darken the bright blue open sea to bring it more in line with the rest of the colours I think it would be perfect.

I have added some superbonuses. Sorry, i liked the blue colour too much, so it stays. :P Pending public now. Hopefully people can soon play on it.
