Swiss is nice as well, I assume they are still part of the Germanic group

Nice map improvements indeed.
However, hope they made Bosnia´s culture Croatian & Serbian, not just Serbian.
Give the lower ´hercegovina´ provinces Croatian culture.

Also, I hope we see more provinces & decisions in the Balkans.

Lets see, I see new provinces in Umbria and Ancona, with Urbino now confined to a much more historical size. Montferrat is there, but it seems to be part of Milan (perhaps as an independent state it hasn't been implemented yet). Lombardy, Liguria, and Sardinia are all split in two; Florence looks to be split as well, but it's hard to see under the units - which are blocking whether we have Lucca or not (wait, that white shield unit - what is it?). Looks like several new provinces in south Italy: Calabria, Naples, and Bari are split if I'm not mistaken.

Is Tirol split? Hard to tell being all gray...

Oh, and I believe I see a north-south split in Macedonia as well!

Finally Vaud and Wallis were made swiss instead of burgundian (which made zero sense imo).

Can somebody please take that picture and trace all the province lanes in a thick black?

And then put a picture up of the current map next to it.

And do it quickly.

Nicely done with Italian cultures, this was much needed.

However, I don't like the "Swiss" culture at all. It was suggested on this forum either Swabian or Alemannic, both much better than Swiss. Also, Vaud and Valais (French-speaking Switzerland) should not be of the same culture. I would argue that Savoie, Vaud, Valais, Lyonnais and Dauphiné should be of the same culture: Arpitan or Franco-provençal, in the French culture group. Occitan is more accurate for Provence, Avignon and Languedoc.

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francoprovençal#/media/File:Arpitan_francoprovencal_map.jpg

Franco-Provençal (Francoprovençal), Arpitan, or Romand (in Switzerland) (Vernacular: francoprovençâl, arpetan, patouès; Italian: francoprovenzale, arpitano; French: francoprovençal, arpitan, patois) is a Gallo-Romance language spoken in east-central France, western Switzerland, northwestern Italy, and in enclaves in the Province of Foggia in Apulia, Italy. Franco-Provençal has several distinct dialects and is separate from but closely related to neighboring Romance languages: Oïl languages, Occitan, Gallo-Italian, and Romansh. The name Franco-Provençal was given to the language by G.I. Ascoli in the 19th century because it shared features with French and Provençal without belonging to either. Arpitan, a neologism, is becoming a popular name for the language and the people who speak it.[5]

The culture name "Croatian" definitely covers part of Bosnia, so it looks like their culture will be split.

Still no Ticino province? Well, whatever, I'm reall happ Italy is receiving some love, Umbria and Marche are now Papal provinces, we've got Lucca and probably a releasble Monferrato, but this map can be so much better with some more additions. For instance, there should be an impassable area between Venice and Austria, with a chokepoint in Trent, and the latter is owned by the archbisphoric of the same name, and it should be a vassal/allied with Austria. Also, the province of Romagna should be split in two, the newer province should be called Emilia with capital in Bologna and owned by the namesake city, and it should a vassal of the Papal state.

Also, you should probably call the Romagnan culture Emilian, since there's only one province in that group that is actually Romagnan.

Looking at it closely, I do believe we indeed have a Tirol split, and a 3-way Florence split: Lucca, Florence, and Unnamed Eastern Tuscan Province (I'm certain that will be its name!)

And, lol. I've been looking so closely at the map that I was missing the big freakin' "LUCCA" at the top as the nation being played! Missing the forest for the trees! :D
