I know it is probably just still in development, but I want to take this opportunity to say that having title names reflect local culture is a must-have feature from CK2. I definitely don't want to be seeing modern English exonyms in Ireland unless, God forbid, the English are there...!

As long as it's a gameplay option that can be turned off, sure.

Only thing I noticed is that on the pictures you provided the Ireland is quite undersized. If I counted correctly it has around 13 provinces on the picture while in the CK2 there is around 18. Why the downsizing?

Provinces? Do you mean counties? Well one difference between CK2 and CK3 is that CK3, baronies are on the map, which also mean the smallest unit on the map is baronies while in CK2 it is counties, so the total amount of map units are going to be much greater than in CK2 even if the number of counties are similar or even less.

Even if each county in Irland only have 3 baronies each and it have 13 counties, it would still end up with 39 locations, which would be like twice as many map locations as CK2 Irland.

Given that Baronies can't leave their de jure counties, the smallest unit on the map de facto are Counties. It doesn't matter if each county is further divided into 30 baronies each, only counties can change hands and be conquered into bigger polities (duchies, kingdoms)
It's irrelevant if there are "39 locations" making it "twice as many map locations as CK2 Irland"; the counties are what matter in CK3

For military purposes it is quite a big deal that baronies and not counties are the smallest unit.

But not for realm administration. It's still the same level (and I'd bet with less counties) as CK2.

It is hard to know, they may have changed around the number of counties so some places may have gained or lost counties,

All I want to know is:

Can I turn the tooltips OFF or at least DELAY them in this game to not POPUP INSTANTLY and flicker and bother the hell out of me as they do in CKII.

You can't even mod them away!!!!!

Just. This. One. Feature. Please.

For the love of all that is good in the world!

so... basically the UI will be relatively simple, to make up for the extreme complexity of everything else?

Thanks, i guess...
