I've got a good knowledge of African geography... if you like, send me the psd file and I'll swap the names out for you. I think it would be too much to just list them all.

Ok here's where I'm at at this moment. I'm currently waiting on IH to send me a version with revised territory names. In the mean time I made a few small changes here that can be easily dropped into the IH's new Version. I added a big Impassable Sand Dune over present day Camaroon and Nigeria, and I've also made all European Colonial power territories +1 auto deploys. I did this because I don't want players to waste all their troops defending their European territories rather than dukeing it out in Africa. I figure if it's a +1 auto deploy most of the work is done for them.

Yeah I do, but I'll probably end up changing it at some point.

Here's the version IH revised:

Ok here's my restructure based on IH's Revisions. Arabia is now it's own independant non-bonus region. I also went ahead and made a few more name changes. Also I added another Immpassable in the Ethiopia area. Maybe I'm going mad with immpassable's what do you guys think?

I'm definitely splitting Sudan into 2 territories (as it is want to do) I'm either going to do the traditional North South split, or let the Nile River split it. Right now I'm preferring the Nile split, what do you guys think?

Here's the new version. Yeah I know I'm updating on a Saturday night, maybe I didn't have plans, wanna fight about it?! It's not like I'm not already a little bit drunk despite the fact that I've already established I'm at home by myself Ugh let's see, so many changes.

OK obviously there are some superficial modifications like the borders and lines of latitude and longitude. I made British Somalia a pure british territory like Gold coast. You only get +1 with England. Eritrea as well. It's Italian but it's only worth +1 with Italy. This separated Puntland and Mogadishu from Eritrea so I bumped that down to +1 by itself and +2 with Italy.

Also in the legend I separated the note about single region bonuses for visual simplicity.

I also made the Colonial Powers territories text White so that they are more instantly recognizable.

Now that Libya is all over the news I did some reading up on its history... apparently the Italians only took it from the Ottomans in 1911-1912. If it's 19th Century Africa you're going for, you ought to strip it Ottoman Green.
