I really love the new terrain. The previous one sucked.
The map upgrade looks excellent.
Well overdue. I was starting to get worried about the somewhat dated graphics.
It's amazing how much better looking each subsequent Paradox game is.
Is it right to assume you have put some thought into enhancing the look of the interface a bit too?
I like certain things the MEIOU team did, but I also really like the additions made in VII for popups, if that is at all possible.
Either way, not expecting an answer, just throwing my support behing the PI team (even if I would like a Rome exp someday ).
"For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others."
"When we are unwilling to draw clear moral lines between free societies and fear societies, when we are unwilling to call the former good and the latter evil, we will not be able to advance the cause of peace because peace cannot be disconnected from freedom."
Both the V2 and this one look like they are from 21st century IMO. I am not complaining as it might represent someone from future taking out the map of that age and looking at it and most important of all: it looks nice.But then, maybe you should consider giving the map a more Modern-era look. Like Blaeu's maps, because right now it looks too much Victorian or 20th Century-like.
I just love a map more similar to Victoria 2's, it's better and more fun regarding all aspect: wars, economy management, replayability.
I guess the handling of core will change a little (more flexible -sp-), too.

I hope the devs will also make some indicators for unit size/org on the map without the need of hovering on the unit.
I missed this feature a lot from EUIII (thats one reason why Im still prefering Ftg over EUIII). They have nicely "reintroduced" it in Vicky II, so I hope we can also see it in DV
My God in it is full of win.
This developer diary makes me cautiously optimistic about this new expansion. It has alot of room for potential.

Excellent changes to the map!
I can't wait to get into Chinese and Japanese politics as well as whatever new events you guys throw into the game.
"also most of paradox rise as a successful company can be attributed to the motivating powers of "Mr Nibbles", a vicious old platypus specimen Johan keep locked in a drawer.

Good maps. Terrain map mode will finally be viable for my old eyes!
The map of Europe looks not as a map of Kingdoms, and as a map of any tribes. I think borders of provinces should be made historical, i.e. more curved. But in general, I like this mapstyle.
I'm sorry for my English.
Looking very nice. Really weird to start a game as Switzerland now.

It's such a pretty map now, especially the political map kept drawing me in. o_o
My favorite view is the new Vicky political map where you see terrain features as well. I noticed in the DW video that this is in. Thats incredibly precious, being able to see who-owns-what and not have to switch to a terrain map when you want to plan military operations!
It's understandable, but really... This paper looks like the one which they've forced me to use to draw gearboxes on. Could we maybe have fancy compass and scroll-style cracks? Wouldn't it be more authentic?
Woo! More provinces for Switzerland.
De drabbat samman med dunder och knall
I höstdagens ljusningstimma
Det smattrar från gravar och dikesvall
Det blixtrar i gulgrå dimma.
Kanonen plöjer bland rök och damm
I åkern för blodigt säde
Och fäktande fylkingar flyttas fram
Som brickorna på ett bräde.

Nice. That first picture has me excited!
I'm not a fan of the creases in the map though. Also, I hope that they use rich colors with plenty of contrast. . .that was probably the main thing I didn't like about the Victoria II map. I soo hope they reconsider the creases. . .

The map looks good , I'm happy now that in my mod I still did not made any changes to map . less work for converting it to DW
you will change and improve the interface a bit ?
I would love to see a oportunity to hire more troops at one time in many provinces, it will be a usefull option specially in MP games
You are maybe looking for beta tester players ?
