Description
The Graphical Map Improvements mod improves the overall look and feel of the map.

Features include:

♦ New HD terrain textures.
♦ More emphasized and better-looking seasons.
♦ Darker and more colourful water.
♦ Shadows removed from the terrain, thereby making it easier to see borders (Version WITH shadows further down).
♦ Thicker font for country and province names.
♦ Easier-to-see country and province borders.
♦ Larger occupation lines.


MOD COMPATIBILITIES: This mod should be compatible with other mods that don't change the way the map looks (this doesn't include provinces and new countries etc, only aesthetic changes)

IRONMAN COMPATIBILITY: The Graphical Map Improvements mod is fully iron-man compatible!


DIRECT DOWNLOAD LINKS (TERRAIN SHADOWS HERE):
Here is a text file with all the links to the downloads:
Download links[www.dropbox.com]

Instructions: Extract/unzip the package and place the two files in Documents\Paradox Interactive\Europa Universalis IV\mod\


HOW TO CHANGE THE MOD VERSION:
(This will work for updating the mod to a newer version)
Navigate to Documents\Paradox Interactive\Europa Universalis IV\mod\ and open then graphicmap.mod with Notepad (if it's not there, you will find it in the corresponding zip file, graphicmap.zip for example). Navigate to the line that says supported_version="[version]" and change the field [version] to whichever EU4 version you wish. For example, for version 1.22, you would insert:

supported_version="1.22.*"

The * symbol is to signify all patches under that version 1.22. Do this if you want the mod to work with all EU4 patches under a certain version.


BUGS:
If you encounter any problems, it's probably best to use the direct download links above to install the mod manually. Otherwise, there is a known bug involving the font being glitched, and it seems to happen to Mac users only. If the font is buggy and messed up, install the vanilla fonts version of the mod in the direct download links above. This will get rid of the custom font but it's better than having a buggy, broken font.


USE TERMS:
I am fine with anyone using my mod in any way and reuploading it as long as they give me credit in the description of their mod.

@Bleergh yea i know that im asking if you are going to add the mod to the steam workshop

@baconprison - The download link for the terrain shadows version is in the description.

@Phil Swift - I wouldn't think that it's my mod causing that. Try running the game without the mod? Verify the game files maybe?

Has anyone ran into problems with the flags losing their logos and color? All of my flags are black and this is the only mod I run.

@Zak Preston - You can download the terrain shadows version in the description which adds the shadows back to the map, this should be more for your taste :)
