this map is looking nice. i like the colours, with the emblems incorporated into the continent backgrounds.

- we have to find another name for the yellow territory whis is named "Würzburg" right now, because Würzburg is a city in bavaria.
- and also: the German name is Bayern, not Bavaria.
we can align the continents completely with the länder boundaries by renaming some more territories. this lets us avoid using artificial directional names for the continents.
rename hanover as braunschweig (west germany continent becomes niedersachsen or maybe niedersachsen-anhalt - does this last name make sense to our german players?).
make kassel bigger and braunschweig smaller, then rename kassel as hannover.
rename würzburg as kassel (hessen continent becomes rheinhessen - this, suggested by daydream, is a well-known wine-producing region).
rheinland continent becomes baden-württemberg.
rename bamburg as würzburg (bavaria continent becomes bayern).
rename erfurt as jena.
make kassel (the old würzburg) bigger and fulda smaller, then rename fulda as erfurt (east germany continent becomes sachsen-thüringen).
rename prussia as preussen (suggested by daydream), unless we can think of a better name for this continent.
after renaming as above, will borders for unchanged gameplay be maintained if we use the correct political boundaries for the six continents (niedersachsen-anhalt, rheinhessen, baden-württemberg, bayern, sachsen-thüringen and preussen), based on the map below? i know that we can't use the actual political boundaries for each individual territory.
can u erase the part of the river that forms the border between dresden and both berlin and potsdam and replace it with mountains, since the river doesn't go that way (see below)?
add the oder river along the eastern edges of neubrandenburg and most of berlin, then veer it south-east into poland to join up with the existing river. add the neisse river along the eastern edges of dresden and berlin to flow into the oder river. below is a link to the preussens gloria website, which has a map of these two rivers, that together form the border between germany and poland. http://www.nccg.org/preussen/preussen8.html
