A lot of times, territories are consolidated to make them playable on a map, or a different time setting is assumed. As long as the area is close geographically, it's usually permissible on a lot of maps due to how hard it would be to put every single country or, per say, Europe, into a map.

Also, no need to be rude.

this map has very big geographical mistakes.
if those offend you then maybe you should try the Europa map. it has far worse graphics but it is at least an accurate representation of modern europe.

but i would personally recommend Europe 1914 map. it has great gameplay and better graphics than the other europe maps and the accuracy is excellent (according to 1914 borders)

Names in Russia are not too accurate either (except for Arkhangelsk). I would say:
- St. Petersburg = Karelia
- Moscow = Western Russia
- Western Russia = Caucasus
- Northwestern Russia = Komi

And I don't think people in Lebanon and Jordan will be too happy to be called Israel, not to mention the Palestinians (the state of Israel comprises about 15% of the total area that is called Israel on this map, and less than one third of the total population). I don't think I have to explain anyone how sensitive these matters are over there... (Southern) Levant would be the most neutral name for this region.

And Slovakia is ofcourse former Czechoslovakia, an area inhabited by about twice as many Czechs as there are Slovaks.

And finally, you've got to be kidding me to call Poland, Belarus, Moldova, Ukraine etc. part of 'Germany'! When you make flagrant mistakes like that, don't blame people for criticizing after quenching (=publication!). All you cartographers are ignorant, or what? (I know the answer to that question)

Quoted for truth.

Germany = Central Europe

The West = Western Europe
Belgium = Benelux
Mediterranea = Southern Europe

Sardinia = Corsica & Sardinia

Scandinavia = Northern Europe
Estonia = Latvia & Estonia (or Baltics, if 2 words don't fit on the map, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baltics#Et ... f_the_term)
Saint Petersburg = Karelia
Africa = Northern Africa
The Near East = Middle East
Arabia = Saudi (Arabia)
Israel = (Southern) Levant
(includes Jordan, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_Levant)
Eastern Turkey = Eastern Anatolia (includes Georgia and Armenia)
Western Russia = European Russia
Moscow = Western Russia
Northwestern Russia = Komi
Western Russia = Caucasus


No changes to the graphics or gameplay have been suggested, except for the mountain graphics.


People have been asking for a revamp for this map for years...

Why has it never been done I wonder?

I've just been playing a game on this map.

It brings back memories of when I was first getting into CC.

But it's a map which I feel would particularly benefit from a touchup.

As noted above, there are several geographical inconsistencies which could be resolved quite easily. Some borders are unclear (and essentially non-existent between Italy and Albania), and there are a few other things I'd improve.

If I demonstrated an updated image which is based on - and very loyal to - the current design, would you [cartographers] consider putting it through the process again?

That's not to say that I should necessarily be the one to revamp it...I'd just like to show that it can be improved without making critical changes.

Before getting violent and calling everyone names, maybe you should check the more recent Europe map.
