    One area I was not happy with the map first time round was The Cree, so I spent the day adding in the key rivers and relocating the city spots to be more accurate and expanded it to the Plains Cree historical boundries, also changed up the colour to work better now it overlapped both America and Canada.

    Nice. Are you adding unique infrastructures to the maps for flavor?

    Yes, I felt the need to add The Great Wall, and the others flowed after that

    I have tweeked a lot of the wonders, because some of them were really small for some reason, smaller than the tile improvements, so that had to change.

    One of the issues with Sweden is going to be where to draw the line with the lakes, there are sooooo many lakes, not Finland level of lakes but close.

    Don't forget about the lakes, rivers, and islands of Canada.

    After all, it has the longest coastline in the world when using a reasonable scale and precision of measurements), given the infamous coastline problem that baffles many geographers and cartographers.

    Canada also has the most lakes in the world and many Canadian lakes are very irregularly shaped with some lakes having hundreds of bays and peninsulas that make Sulawesi (a large Indonesian island with four very long and very large peninsulas jutting from the centre of the island) easy to draw in comparison.

    Oh I am well versed in all of Canada's many, many, many islands, when you have to go over every island twice to add them (well 4 times when you add adding the base North American continent)

    Sadly, as far as I'm aware, we still don't know for sure where Akkad was. :(

    If you just draw Vänern, Vättern, Mälaren and Hjälmaren, you're good.

    So I have come across my first stumbling block so far

    On the Maori city list there is a city called 'Pari-Ru' and for the life of me I cannot find where it is supposed to be

    Is it a Maori translation of an English placename?

    Aren't you pushing yourself a bit too hard since you're endeavoring to add all the named geographical features in the game? How many are there anyway and isn't it randomly generated, and therefore would consist of more than 50 names?
