    Moda and I have now completed North and Central America for the Giant Earth map and we are now playtesting for bugs. Moda will make a pull request for this area soon. He will post the details.

    My next target area to map for the Giant Earth map is the remaining parts of Russia so all Arctic areas are modded.

    Is there a complete list of areas that still need to be mapped for the different maps?

    As Stauffenberg mentioned above, we will make a pull request on gitHub once we've checked for bugs and are comfortable with its state.

    Good work with the Americas, screenshots look great!

    Play Europe Again is complete (I think).

    Giant Earth Map to do list AFAIK:
    -Africa north of y=29 to Suez
    -Siberia east of x=51, Ural mountains.
    -Persia/Central Asia, in between x=46 and @guidemwit 's south asia work*

    *South Asia (India-Pakistan-Bangladesh-Sri Lanka) currently a work in progress by @guidemwit

    Not sure on the status of the Greatest Earth Map.

    I'm starting a new job soon which will make it very difficult for me to contribute for a couple of months at least. I have enjoyed working on this project, the Civ community is great. Hopefully we have enough contributors to finish it!

    My test game for America was halted With the game crashing on turn 185 regardless of what I do. So I need to start a New game all over. So far the cities created had proper names, I managed to settle all the way from Washington to Tampa to San Francisco and Seattle.

    Pity that there still are crash situations in the game when the AI's are doing their turn. Had a similar one for Russia on the Europe map, but it was fixed With the last patch.

    It's nice that we are able to define progress on GEM with just what is left to do rather than the parts we have done—progress is being made! However, Play Europe Again is not actually complete: there is still one final section in the Middle East pending. @rock_and_ride was working on it and had made some progress, but it hasn't been merged on GitHub and @rock_and_ride hasn't been active here for a couple of months now. Meanwhile, on the Greatest Earth map Australasia, France, and a few capitals have been done, but no serious effort has really commenced yet. Nothing has been done on Largest Earth. I did plan out the names for Australasia for it when I did the other two sizes, but I haven't written the xml yet.
    Speaking of progress, the status post on the first page hasn't been updated for ages now. Seeing as you have moderator privileges @Gedemon, would you bring it up to date?

    Yes I can edit it, could you send me a PM if there is more, or should I just add the information from your post?

    I've finished play-testing the city map additions for North America on the Giant Earth Map. I made a pull request on gitHub, though I'm not entirely sure if I made one properly since it's my first time.
    Just let me know if I need to make another one.

    I also made some start location changes for Tikal (Maya) and Vancouver in YnAMP - More CS for the World. Although those weren't added in my first pull-request, is it OK to include those as well?

    Thanks @brick623. Your additions look fantastic too!

    What should I do if there are two important cities sharing the same name?

    Hyderabad in Pakistan (3.5 million) vs Hyderabad in India (6.8 million). They are an isolated cities without other important city nearby.

    How can I set Arabia to have an alternate capital if Egypt is also in the game? I'd rather Egypt have the default Ra-Kedet/Alexandria start with Arabia moving to Mecca if that's the case but leave him in Cairo if Egypt is not in it.

    I noticed from my playtesting of North Africa With the Giant Earth Map that the city states are not updated properly With the true city names. E. g. Kansas City on the map is being showed as Cheyenne in the city state window. I think other city states have different names in Messages than on the map.

    Northern Africa doesn't seem to be mapped. I met Spain there and saw the usual Spanish cities in Morocco like Cádiz, Cordoba etc. Which parts of Africa aren't mapped in Giant Earth Map?

    what about adding the province name to the city in Pakistan like wikipedia did to differenciate both?

    This is not coded yet, still thinking on how to handle each case.

    A tag to exclude a TSL if another civ (& leader?) is in the game may be a good idea too.

    Thank you, merged!

    see third post in first page, it has been updated.

    Woops. I forgot to include Cheyenne's start location change in my last pull request. It should take a few seconds to fix. I'll make another small pull request when I do.
