Could I please have the full-size version of the map from the first post?
Well, to be honest, a higher resolution of the image didn't exist in the first place, but I'll make sure to do a new one, since you asked. It should be done by tomorrow, I'll send it you via pm when its done. Just tell me how high resolution would you want?
The Middle-earth part doesn't work quite right with MEIOU 5.4.3. Or are the Khmer's supposed to have settled in the Ettenmoors?
Anyways, the next expansion will be much easier to install (you will be able to download whole modified meiou folder to make it easier) and will be updated to latest MEIOU version. Currently Tamriel map is done, countries are done in 75%, provinces are planned.
Time for an update
The Tamriel part is finally done. Now I need to focus on fixing climate, regions, and the thing that I fear the most, forming new nations conditions.
One one question to anyone interested in the mod:
Would you prefer more fantasy regions or put on map some fantasy nations between real ones or rather just "release" every possible nation into the map (like Northumberland, Leon or Karelia) to make things interesting
Sorry to be nit picky but the isle in the middle of marrowind "vaardenfall" or something was destroyed in an eruption soon after the time of the oblivion crisis so personally I think it should be a wasteland to simulate this seeing as we are not sure if it is completely gone off the map or just rendered uninhabitable.
The islands south of hammerfell that you seem to have given to them are also inhabited by different people including magical jabbah the hut like slugs. I would personally make them colonizable or something.
It would also be neat to see the Akivir continent put on there, but with the lack of knowledge of it i would understand why you wouldnt.
I understand this is all for fun so thank you for putting up with my little rant there lol.
On another note i would like to ask how I would go about downloading this. I usually get mods that launch as a seperate mod through the MEIOU launcher so im not sure how to go about this one.
You have all right to be picky (and I even encourage everyone to be like that, so I can get more suggestions and opinions), but you are little mistaken in the points about the map here. According to lore Vvardenfell was devastated by the vulcano eruption, not completely destroyed - some people must have survived. And, what is even more important, the game is set in year 201 of 4th era, when the cataclysm happened in year 4 of 4th era. After 200 years I believe that such a big island would be inhabited again (Although I gave it only small population to begin with), About the islands south of Hammerfell, they are undoubtedly inhabited by Humans - Stros M'Kai and Stirk The islands that were inhabited by sloads were called Thras and were sunk thousands of years before the game start (around 2200 year of first era) and so I didn't add them to the map (they were supposed to be to the west of Hammerfell). Sorry to disrupt your ideas, but I'm open minded to any discussion, if you don't agree with my points.
About the downloading part - unfortunately I was unable to secure any help from proper coders and so I don't know how to make meiou launcher start it as a separate mod. The installation however will be still very easy - the next version of the mod will be downloadable as a whole meiou folder. You will just need to rename original meiou folder to for example meiou2 and put the downloaded folder into the same directory. If you would want to play original meiou you would only need to change folder names again.
secondworld.7z (Paradox forum doesn't allow files with the .mod extension so I had to zip it.)
That should let you have simultaneous Second World and MEIOU installs.

I don't think vvardenfell is gone from the map, it's just become more ashy, but shortly after the eruption of Red Mountain, the argonians invaded Morrowind, causing the Dunmer (aka Dark Elves) to flee to Solstheim, the little island to the north of Morrowind.
So if you want it to be true to the lore, Morrowind should belong to Argonia and Solstheim to the Dunmer. I don't care though I think I'm going to invade everything as Argonia anyways!
I've done a little research, and the lore tells us that the argonians invaded at least as far as Red Mountain, but some Dunmer are returning to rebuild their homeland, so I guess your layout seems reasonably legit.
About Solstheim, the Elder Scrolls Wiki states that the Nords gave Solstheim to the Dunmer as a new homeland. There are no references to lore, though.
I can't help about the lore madness, sorry
Sure! I think I know relatively much about it; in geography and history (both real and fictional), my brain works kind of like a flypaper, so I'm stuck with all kinds of useless info on the history and geography of places like Tamriel and Lord of the Rings. Anyways, i'd like to help you, I guess it's not totally useless afterall!
Will you be adding fictional nations ? I'm thinking for example about Westeros, the world of Peter Brett's Warded Man,...

Out of curiosity, once you've finished adding things to the map and polishing, do you have any plans to modify things like unit/building names or etc?
