    Considering the content & context, I hope it doesn't count as spam. There's a lot of good map sources, historical atlases and such, but one is new and particularly awesome for RFC & modmods: http://geacron.com/

    Essentially you get a year-by-year historical atlas of the world from 3000 BC. You can view any year, or make your own timeline and easily compare specific years. Here's an example showing the area of SoI from 800 to 1700 CE in 100 year intervals (timeline buttons are at the bottom of the map):
    http://geacron.com/en/?lang=en&z=4&...100A1200A1300A1400A1500A1600A1700&di=800&tm=r

    It appears to be quite accurate and includes small and short-lived states as well, but only as long as they are independent - at this point, larger empires, even such as HRE, are drawn as one big blob together with their dependencies.

    +++ This is definitely not spam. Lets see If I can find a split up Britannia in there. :D
    I take two ++'s back. It sees the Brits as blank space. :(

    Just looked at Germany's expansion in WW2 and it has prompted me to call this map as false.

    I don't see how's that false, it matches historical maps. In this case German borders are shown, occupied but not annexed countries are not included. It's not as detailed as historical maps of a particular period are, though seeing as this service just started, I'd imagine they'll eventually add more detail.

    Okay. I was including annexed territories.

    Will rate 2 or 2.5 to 5..
    Fairly good but...
    It doesn't show the Srivijayan and Madjapahit correctly..
    Perhaps they only show the core territory?
    But it does cover those another modern Indonesian city-states ;)
    Disappointingly, no pre-Srivijayan city state.. even Tarumanagara or Sunda ._.

    Mesoamerica is pretty oversimplified compared to maps I've seen around the internet...
