    It's just struck me. Mistake in the colour layer.

    And isn't province of Sibiu too large? Or, maybe, long?
    Plovdiv looks huge too.

    Both provinces are looking but but it is only to keep the current amount of provinces. I said I will increase regions with few provinces after the first running version.
    EDIT:
    Here the maps, I use for these borders.

    I did understand you. As for Novi Pazar, you could make it represent the whole region of Sandzak:

    Rest of the yellow area. Your current Novi Pazar consists of the blue area.

    Nice, but I have a question: why don't name all the Italian (core) provinces with Italian names? IMHO, those should be renamed:

    Pula = Pola
    Piran = Pirano
    Trient = Trento
    Bozen = Bolzano
    Venedig = Venezia

    Another little complaint is about your choice of splitting Italy in its actual political regions, which I don't like. Anyway, de gustibus non disputandum est, I guess...

    Oh, I forget the northern italy provinces.
    But regions with a dominating foreign ethnic will have thier name in their language. So Bozen will stay Bozen.

    Yes, if you're giving German names for provinces, then you should Germanize all names: Rom instead of Roma, Florenz instead of Firenze etc.

    And btw, there's a typo in Ioannina.

    I'd rather see the well-known names such as Roma, Venedig, etc. be in English. I hate it when Moscow is called Moskva. Everyone knows it as the Battle of Moscow, so it's weird when you're fighting over Moskva.

    The sense of it is to offer everyone a map who shows the provinces in the user's country name. You will still know that it's Moscow because you can use the anglophone names in the game language.

    That is a bad idea. It is a tricky question where a lot of depends on a size and shape of an area and what sources you are using.

    It would make more sense to keep the names in the spelling used by an owner of a province in 1936.
    Plain and simple because otherwise you are inviting some crazies with issues waging wars in the internet over such details.

    Will you make the Borders of Congress Poland in the Game? With the area in Lithuania?

    Do you make the province Trieste how in your old map?

    Trient probably not, because it would be too small. Congress Poland is already possible. (with some differences)

    Congrats Mex!

    BTW: Have you heard any news from the devs regarding the Mapsize?
    It would be great to play on a higher detailed map

    My Map is larger than the orginal map bit you must pay attention - if you make the map much larger in the resolution, it will be horrible because the game engine will no more work with correct distances.
