Where is provinces.bmp? 2.29.155.206 17:14, 11 June 2018 (CEST)

hidden earth colormap[edit]

When blanking the map and all terrain files like terrain.bmp you can observe an overlaying earth texture (colormap?) which can't be found anywhere in the game files. Even when researching about it on the internet it's like it doesn't exist.--Olegson (talk) 12:04, 24 February 2019 (CET)

map/terrain/colourmap_<XXX>.dds SquireBev (talk) 12:09, 24 February 2019 (CET)

I need to replace a specific colormap which has to be somewhere in the game files. There are only water related colormaps in the terrain folder. https://hoi4.paradoxwikis.com/File:Earth_colormap.jpg --Olegson (talk) 13:41, 24 February 2019 (CET)

Okay, I discovered that it is located in a color channel of the file "colormap_rgb_cityemissivemask_a.dds" which I ignored somehow, my bad. Thanks for the help anyways! --Olegson (talk) 15:16, 24 February 2019 (CET)

crashes from large gaps in provinces[edit]

The section map modding#province map mentions that large gaps in provinces lead to crashes. Is there some way to reproduce this? When I put the same province into Siberia and the Sahara, it doesn't seem to cause any immediate issues. Bitmode (talk) 10:22, 19 February 2019 (CET)

That was my addition, based on my experience drawing the British Isles map for VBCW. I can't offer any examples currently as I'm away on holiday all week, but I'll try to sort out some more detail and examples when I get back. --SquireBev (talk) 10:40, 19 February 2019 (CET)
