Interesting, I think the Russian Navy in G7 has a copy of the Atlas.

Joking aside, you can do expeditions in-game to refine your own maps.

I do like the part about California being an island though. That's sort of conceptually right, even if factually wrong.

Nice one Deacon. Might just have to look into a mapping expedition for Southern Africa. Obviously with some White folks (in-game) who know how to make maps!

I agree Deacon, the Isle of California does make more sense Smile

I keep planning to do an Ordnance survey-like survey of Scotland in G10...but I seem to have to be focusing on raising army units rather than improving my infrastructure...

...That and drinking whisky. [in-game joke. Near-enough every newspaper here's the leader of Scotland drinking a whisky and giving an after dinner speach]

Front page news...[Hic] Toasting withs a tumbler filled with whisky...[Hic] Blezzed be Scotchland...[Hic] Where'sh thee map men, to make-sum maps...[Hic] Fanczee a tripz doon to Sooth Afreeca, boys?...[Hic] Gots a commizziun jobs to be done...[Hic] Besst taken a big hatz, though...lesht ta get a sun-burnt...[Hic]

elephant That'll be the Rozwi-Scotland relationship sunk then lol!

Next up - Scotland invades Rozwi! sword Wink

Very Happy A bunch of uncivilised savages...against the Rozwi Wink Now that would be a battle, 10,000 claymore-armed Highlanders v the spears of Rozwi...

Scottish Africa? Now why hadn't I thought of that... Wink

I should add the whisky drinking is simply a marketing ploy, to increase the products profile internationally and so lead to extra profites from trade...honest

Clearly only a matter of time before the Scots send a Dr Livingstone to spread the true faith and single malt to the poor savages in Southern Africa but I think the search for the source of the Nile may run into problems with Ottoman Customs.

I'm more likely to look at the Far East and have a Thomas Blake Glover go and help modernise Japan Wink

Maybe we loose the thread a bit by looking at modern maps, Historically there are still lots of blank bits on the map in 1700's. Some of the voyages of exploration haven't taken place yet.

That certain areas have been inhabited by the local population for thousands of years simply doesn't count, they need to be officially discovered by a white Christian explorer to count as part of the modern world.
