Well, this began when playing TRP, I did some minor changes in my own version (error fixing, adding ship's model names, etc...). Then I thought to begin a more extensive work with the mod and send the material to DerStudti, and the first thing I wanted to do was to add as many province pics as possible. Never did this before, so I then discovered that no files have to be modified for this, as you only have to create the images with "ill_prov_****.bmp" name, and the work is not only sensible to a particular mod, but works with everything that doesn't change the province id's.
Will upload my progress in this thread, and hope you guys find it useful and enjoy it.
Also, found Vanadio pics from years ago, so I merged many of them into my archives.

Paste the files into your Dh full or mod directory

Province Pics 13/02/21 1.635 pics


Most of the pics are from 1920 to 1942, but I had problems with some zones and they use a 1900s, 1910s or 1950s pic, but they're a minimal part of the pack.


If you guys have any pic to complete the collection (or you consider that you have a better pic than the one I used), don't hesitate to send it to me and I'll include it in the files.
Format has to be 24bits bmp, 192x74 pixels, coloured pic (timeframe 1920-1945)


Special thanks to Michal77 contribution, Nick3210 help with Russian little cities and Imperial Zenith mod

Even if it adds more provinces but keeps the originial ID's there wouldn't be problems, if you refer to E3, i'ts not compatible (well it will not crash but you would have wrong pics on wrong provinces)

Really great job!
Can I steal some of your images for my mod?
So far, I have been forced to search for similar images of urban provinces among other vanilla images, and so my Barcelona, Lisbon, Seville and several other cities have similar in nature/architecture, but fake images, lol.

Well, before returning to "normal life" tomorrow, I wanted to do a last update (it has been some days dedicated only to this project)
I have finished all of Europe except the Soviet Union (that has some pics too), North and Central America with the Antilles and most of South America.
You will find some countries finished around the world, like Vietnam, Spanish and Italian colonies, New Zealand, Syria, Iraq and some pics here and there.

Hope you enjoy it

Am I wrong, or did you use AI coloring for some photos? The saturation of colors indicates it.

Most of them are AI coloring, it's really hard to find coloured photos from the 30s
