why change the Eu3 map it was perfect.the new map is crud
Nothing is ever perfect. The map as it is has problems, which are more obvious with a large nation and a small(ish) screen.
I already lose track of province edges when I zoom out fully for example.
Also (not necessarily a map issue) navies appearing variably in provinces and on the edge of provinces is a bit wearing, especially when trying to select them if you don't know the name of that fleet.

Parma in the game is a coastal city, while in reality it belongs to central Italy
The new map is looking absolutely great.
However, it may be a bit too similar to Victoria II map.
I think Parma still has a port but it is not shown because of fow. The province right below it doesn't have a port either.
OK, I'm intrigued.
To the game you stay a slave
will the wasteland provinces change so they can be colonized ?
Nice map. I specifically love the coloring. Easy contrast on the eyes and equally as easy to navigate neighbor provinces.
True it may look the same as Victoria II, however, you can select units from zoomed out and see the unit flags in EU3 unlike VicII. I've always liked doing this especially with large empires. At least seeing where they are at a quick glance where in Victoria II you would have to hunt them down selecting the Army menu.
Good job Paradox. I for one am really excited for Divine Wind.
I'm for eliminating wasteland. Humans love to claim EVERYTHING. I think if it's set up for (near) zero growth and high attrition, it would work into the game quite well. It might even lend credence to placing Antarctica at the bottom of the map.
I kinda like wasteland.
The northern coast of Russia and the Northeast Passage have far more claim to be in the game than Antarctica.
Note that you can create events/decisions to give a country ownership of a wasteland province. Can't build anything there or move units through it but it can provide part of a 'land connection' to another province which can be useful.

I agree with the general sentiment that the style of the map might be a bit too "modern", and not really fit the EU3 period.
Something that appears handdrawn (a la Strannik's HDM) would suit better, IMHO.

Not sure how you put it in developer terminology but is this maps foundation Victoria II, different textures for the terrain, provinces and such but essentially the Victoria II map?
Its not the EU3 map being redone?
