[Mini-mod] Better generic province pictures

  • 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.

These generic province pictures (desert, forest, hills, jungle, mountains, plains, sea, swamp and urban) are taken from WW2-era colour photographs. In my opinion, they are clearer and more immersive than the vanilla ones.

I recommend to combine this mini-mod with others that improve the number of specific province pictures, like this one.

Heh, I just noticed where you got the forest province picture from. It's a Finnish photograph from the Continuation War:

A story tells that the sorbus branch is actually being held by an assistant of the photographer.

Yeah, you got me. If you haven't noticed, also one of the battle event pictures is from the Finnish front.
