I really miss those old style paradox maps that actually felt like they belonged in the game. Sure the map is nice, I suppose, but for a game about High middle age Europe to pre-industralism, a satellite map feels really wrong. I know I"m in the minority and my opinion won't effect the outcome of the game, but hopefully there will be mods to fix the map.
NEWSFLASH: In an ironic twist, despite being the "Keep your V2 out of my HOI3" sig guy...I've played a lot more V2 than HOI3.

Beautiful. Can't wait for this game to come out.

we need more provincies, for example Minorca (English possesion on balearic islands)

Only 7 map modes? I hope in the final game there will be more. I really liked the many map modes from EU3 DW 5.1!
I agree with a more simple mapmode. A drawed map, that looks like something used in 1400-1800. 7 map modes? Why not 1 that actually works? Anyway what's all the fuzz with the terrain map mode? Does anyone use it? I always play on political. And it bothers me that I have to change between that and the religious among others because the map reveals zero information.
Magna Mundi cancelled! Can't stop laughing!
You might be right, but I used the terrain map mode for weather data. A smart combined "max supply limit/max attrition/weather" map mode would be nice. The SOI map mode (If SOI is still a concept) could be combined with the "diplomatical relations" map mode. And for bigger countries the "revolt risk" map mode is a must have!
Edit: I started a thread about map modes

The map looks nice. I guess I'm kind of underwhelmed by the scale though. I expected larger land masses and more provinces to play in, but it seems like there are less compared to EU3 let alone the games that came after. I don't want to call it a step back so early in development, but the pics seem to show a regression in this area imho.

I like the look of the map, although the CK2 styled borders don't seem too fitting, somehow, especially not in the later stages of the game.
