I bought EU3. But at first, I didnt play any game. I just cannot accept the way german provinces are designed in vanilla EU3 . Its so much false, just too wrong! I already discovered this before the release of EU3.
Before having fun, I HAD to fix this. Now its done...
THE GERMAN CORRECTION now for EU 3 patched 1.3
GERMAN CORRECTION 3.2 VERSION A
All provinces are in corrected shape, representing the historic circumstances and todays borders of german federal states and administrative boundaries inside. Also corrected are the rivers, these have been completely misplaced in vanilla EU3, as everything across Germany was just miserable .
Note some of the major changes, that will teach the historically and geographically interested reader, why this Mod had to be done and why you need to install it
- The Elbe river now touches Magdeburg, Dessau and Dresden, no more messing around in the Hannover province and west of Leipzig...
- Oder river now is the border river between Brandenburg and Neumark, Berlin is now west of the Oder, otherwise it would be in Poland today...
- The Weser, Rhine&Main now follow correct paths too...
- The southern half of Brandenburg isnt any more a saxonian province of Meissen. Brandenburg now is in its correct known shape, Meissen is reduced back into the correct borders of saxony.
- The city of Nuremberg moved back to frankonian lands, leaving a province that is now correctly named "Oberpfalz" with its new capital Regensburg
- a complete reorganisation of the bavarian states was geographically absolutely necessary.
- so was all the other provinces
- Frankfurt returned back to the main, leaving Nassau and is now the capital of the province now named Main
- The Main province now reflects the cities of Frankfurt, Mainz, Wiesbaden and Darmstadt.
-The province of Lausitz was renamed Niederschlesien as that would be the name of a province located there. The real Lausitz is located in southern Brandenburg, that means in the area a province called Meissen is located in vanilla EU3
-ALL German cities are now placed geographically correct.
I did not add or delete any province, I just wanted to correct the present provinces for maximum compatibility. Several changes in positioning of harbors, cities, troops and names were necessary. It took me whole days to test this out until it was finished. To reflect the change of city locations for Nuremberg, Frankfurt, the contents of the related files in the history folder had to be changed around. I didnt alter them, just copypasted the specific entries of the moved cities to their new provine's files. So everything I could leave as it was, I did not touch.
I had to rename some provinces too. Note that the positioning of names on the map was only tested with my german version, so it maybe differ in yours.

As another alternative you can download the
GERMAN CORRECTION 3.2 VERSION C
NOT compatible to vanilla EU3 savegames
This is Version B with changes in Silesia and the addition of the danish isle of Bornholm. I killed the province of Ratibor and merged it with Breslau, since historically there was only this greater province of Silesia handed around the middleeuropean rulers. With the empty province slot, I created Bornholm in the Baltics. As this is altering the vanilla province system, please note that VERSION C IS NOT COMPATIBLE to vanilla EU3 savegames. (Only Version A and Version B ARE compatible to vanilla EU3) VERSION C SAVEGAMES ARE ONLY COMPATIBLE TO EU3-CONFIGURATIONS RUNNING GERMAN CORRECTION VERSION C! Other mods regarding graphical issues only (without map editing and stuff) should run parallel without problems. Contact me for questions
