Revolutionary GFX: Border Overhaul

This mod chages the borders for countries, states, provinces, sea zones and sea provinces as well as the gradient borders.

Country borders:
Thick, with outlines and a subtle pattern
State borders:
Added outlines and a subtle stripy pattern
Province borders:
Thinner with a stripy pattern
Sea zones:
Thick and clean, with outlines
Sea provinces:
Thin and clean, with outlines
Gradient borders:
Less transparent when zoomed out, color fades out slower when zooming in.

Can be used together with any of the RGFX mods.

Ironman/Achievement compatible & Multiplayer friendly (doesn't change checksum)

Thanks! I'll try this with BICE even though i don't really have issue with its borders, but this looks awesome!

Does this not work with WW's Map Mod?

Oh nice, I didn't realize you could set them up to override that way. I'll check that out :)

@Bridger I only changed two lines in constants.fxh

static const float GB_THRESHOLD = 0.05f; // interpolation time
static const float GB_THRESHOLD = 0.075f; // interpolation time


static const float GB_THRESHOLD2 = 0.25f; // interpolation time
static const float GB_THRESHOLD2 = 0.33f; // interpolation time

Feel free to upload your own version. If you want your mod to overwrite constants.fxh from my mod, you will have to add my mod as dependancy in the *mod file of your mod so that mine gets loaded first. There's a good guide on the ck2 wiki on how to do that.
Thanks for your tutorial videos, btw. They are great and helped me a lot to get into HoI4.

nevermind, I think i figured it out. It appears to be Max filling clamp of 1.0 and gb_opacity_far of 1.0 that create the effect I want. I really like the clean nature of the map when zoomed out with this setting.

If you don't mind I'd like to upload this tweaked version of your mod? With full credit and link to this original of course.

Alternatively if you want to upload a tweaked version that I could link to that would also be awesome. I'm putting together a video of my recomended mod list for people and I really want to include this slightly tweaked version of your mod.

Please let me know, I plan to publish the video next week.

@Kryo I really like this border mod when zoomed in, but I'm also a huge fan of the zoomed out view of "better political map mode - default height version." I've examined that mod hoping that I could mod a few lines of yours to get the same effect (fully opaque country colors when zoomed out instead of the partially transparent default). Unfortunately it's all al bit over my head and I'm not sure what lines I need to adjust to achieve the desired effect while simultaneiously preserving the great lower level borders in your mod.

Any advice?

Looks really good. But it would be great if you could change the air and naval map mode in this mod too. Thx!

@Kerub: Yes it is, as well as my other mod in the RGFX series, Expanded Map Mode Menu
