• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

In Magellan 2.4.0, which I believe that is the latest one, it's write in CHANGELOG:

Marianas-rc1 (v2.4.0)
-----------------
Updates:
* implemented custom map sizes
* small bugfixes in file handling (better errorreporting)

So the map could be increased? Better than 18944 x 7296 pixels?

Magellan may support custom map sizes, but FTG does not.

I don't think so.
In Photoshop you must set a map of 18944 x 7296 pixels because Magellan 2.2.1 Sulawesi at most supports this size.
But maybe in the latest Magellan this size is increased. I don't write about the maximum number of provinces, but only map size. If I can do it, I draw all siberian, scandivian and australian coastlines with PTI inside of them and I will add South Africa and Madagascar with some provinces.

Please change the name of this topic adding the "a" of "increasing".

Sorry for the third consecutive post, but maybe I found the reply to my question:
implemented custom map sizes (use "/c:width,height" in minject instead of just "/c" to create a map with non-standard size

Here

EDIT: I can't do it with minject and mextract...

EDIT2: great day! mview doesn't work and view only an 18944 x 7296 pixel map but I see that the map is changed with minject... so I used mextract again with map files changed with minject. I tried to do it with 60000,30000 and in the game the map is increased. Tomorrow I try with mimage to see if in the map I can set South Africa and Australia!

I don't know, but I think 2560 x 2560 pixels with the exception of the beginner and the last ones, that may be 2304 x 2304... and remember that are overlapped!

However mview make to see only an 18944 x 7296 map... I don't know, because in the game the area selected in the small map different.

I wrong everything: in the map the map size is the same with minject, but not with mextract.

I tried to use mextract:

C:\EU2>mextract SGLv100.eu2map /O /C:19200,7552

So I add exactly 256 in 18944 and 256 in 7296 and in mview the map exactly 19200,7552.

So you must use mextract and not minject adding exacly multiple of 256.

Ok, I did "mextract test.eu2map /c:18944,9856" and it worked.

In mview the map size is 18944 x 9856.

What about mimage /e? Do you split it in smaller portions?

Do you mean smaller portions than 18944 x 9856?

Does this mean more provinces can be added as well?
Currently no. Anyway 2020 provinces are a lot.

mimage /e "C:\EU2\test.eu2map" /r:2560,0,2560,2560 /1

No.

mimage /E SGLv100.eu2map test.psd /R:0,0,2560,2560

Then, to put it in the map

mimage /I test.psd SGLv100.eu2map /PEDANTIC

Then

minject SGLv100.eu2map /D:C:\EU2

I recommend you to put FTG demo or EU2 files in a folder like C:\EU2 or C:\FTG

Including ocean, sea and river provinces it still is limiting for a whole world.
