Hi folks! Just thought I'd create my own version of colours for the map of what I think the world should look like during game play. Special thanks also goes to Teckor for providing the inspiration. The colour scheme is based on some colours used by Teckor, except that I've swapped a few of the colours around. For example, I've got rid of the grey colour for Prussia since I think its inappropriate to colour them grey, especially when Germany has not yet formed.
You can see on this map that I've swapped the crimson red with a scarlet pink for the UK and in turn given the crimson to Japan. I've also swapped the Swedish blue from Oman and used it to re-colour Sweden. I've also swapped the Sea Gull Grey of France for the slightly bluish version that Brunei had and in turn given it to Germany. I've also re-coloured Sardinia and swapped Parma's green for the Ottoman's to make them both stand out more. As you can see, I've given the original green from Teckors colouring book to Persia since it better suites them I think.
NORTH and WESTERN AFRICA
I've re-coloured Algeria and Egypt along by adding a new light green to Sokoto.
Re-coloured parts of the Middle East which has improved the overall look.
Re-coloured some of the Indian states, giving them slightly brighter colours to make them stand out more against UK's red.
SOUTH EAST ASIA
Re-coloured Luang Prabang since the very light green didn't do it any justice against the Chinese Yellow.
CHINA & JAPAN
Re-coloured Japan in a crimson red since the previous red kind of looked more orange. China I haven't touched since it goes well with the country's own flag.
NORTH WEST PACIFIC
Russia stands out better in this new lighter but not too dark green.
Kept Teckor's colour for Mexico since its really nice and goes in well with the Mexican flags tri-colour.
Re-coloured USCA in a metallic blue with a silverish tint.
Re-coloured Venezuela and Colombia with a wheat yellow & orange yellow. Replaced Brazil's green with that of Chile and replaced Chile's green with a light red.
SOUTHERN most tip of SOUTH AMERICA
Replaced Argentina's darker blue with a more subtle aqua blue.
NOTE!! I've updated this post by including the 2 versions of my mod. V1 includes USA.v1 colour and v2 includes USA.v2 colour. Everything else is basically the same and both files should be compatible with all vic2 copies.
Anyway enjoy your new colours and let me know if you encounter any problems, will try my best to help.
