21 different map fonts. Like any mod that doesn't change the checksum, they can be switched during ironman playthroughs.

This is a complete overhaul of the map, the GUI and many other things. Therefore any other mod that modifies the map, the GUI or water is NOT compatible.

List of known compatible mods and mod types:

Compatibility Patches

  • Turning off Post Effects in the option menu will lead to a slightly different look. (a bit darker, no season effects, even less shadows)
  • You can turn off the trees in in the option menu

Special Thanks to
  • Ryvoin for the basic terrain and water textures.
  • Negi for the magic code that makes transparency dynamic and his effort on porting it to 1.19

i was able to get it working by using manual download, cant wait!

i have a few of the ones in here downloaded, but the only ones that want to work are the water changing mods, the main mod and the font mods don't seem to work for me. Am i doing something wrong?

Thanks, that worked. That's what I get for giving credibility all of those "pls update" comments.

@Cherub: Thanks! I have no plans to release any more mods for EU4, but the Prussian blue mods you mentioned should still work fine if I'm not mistaken. Just activate one them despite the launcher telling you it's outdated.

These mods are great. Customization is amazing, wish i would have found it sooner. Everything here is exactly what I was looking for. I just wanted to be clear how wonderful all of these mods were before making a shameless request. I've already subscribed to the rev. flag mod for the sake of realism, and have been looking everywhere for a good Prussian blue mod that changes Prussia to its iconic color. None of the ones I have come across seem to be up to date. I don't know how difficult it would be for you to make a Prussian blue mod that is compatible with with these other mods but if you could ever find the time I would be very appreciative. Recommending these to all of my EU4 friends. Excellent work.

@Mr. Kalimotxo: Did you try the Deep Blue Water Add-On? It looks much more "realistic" than the standard map water.
Mr. Kalimotxo May 14 @ 1:02pm 
@Kyro if I delete some files from the base mod, can I get the vanilla water? If so, which files do I have to delete? I really want to try the mod with "realistic" water rather than "map" water.

@Yang Wen-li: Yes, the interface add-on is optional.
Yang Wen-li May 10 @ 1:14am 
Can I run mod without using interface fonts?
