    Great work mate !!! Question: Is it possible to change the individual province terrain ? Noticed some provinces are still wrong (i.e. Durban or Ulundi= Semidesert should be Grassland). I tried to make a change by selecting i.e. a province like Belize and adding this text to the Belize.txt ( terrain = jungle or terrain = tropical_forest) . Nothing changed when I reloaded the game, seems that by default Vikki 2 just keeps using what it derives from the modded terrain.bmp. Is there a way around this, to make the map look even better ?

    Is possible change the terrain of a individual province in terrain.bmp without changing too much how it look in the game. Please report any anomaly in provinces like this (mentioning the name of the province) and I'll change it in a future patch.

    Great initiative!

    Could you perhaps make a version for the POP demand mod also?

    If you are lucky, Naselus and Rylock might even make it a part of the mod...

    Please?

    Integration of this Map into the "Pop demand mod" would be really cool!

    I think the integration of this mod to POP demand mod should do it the respective authors. But I'll see what I can do.
