Ichi no Hito
- Aug 24, 2012
I've been playing a campaign as Pasai, now Lamuri, during the mongol invasions, and I've been having a lot of fun. But I'm wondering, why is Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines so tilted and skewn? It's as if it's been rotated a full 60 degrees towards the left. Is this because the map isn't tall enough?
I believe it's a consequence of both the dimensions of the map (and what was desirable to fit on the map) and the chosen projection (which is partially based on vanilla's weird projection), though as the relevant decisions were made well before I joined the team I don't know if there's more to it than that.
Given that we don't have any active map modders on the team, that good map modders are quite rare, and that many of those that have worked on maps for CK2 mods in the past likely have moved on (and that those that are left simply might not have the time or the interest to help out), it's pretty unlikely we'll be able to switch to another projection, and even if we could find someone that'd be willing and able to do various things we couldn't do ourselves the things that'd remain for us to do would be quite extensive and thus rather time-consuming even in a best-case scenario.
