Remove the Mayans and Zapotecs as allies of the Incas. They do not make sense historically and geographically speaking.
I think Mayas were replaced with Caribs, though idk if that makes much more sense.
Ideally Muisca should replace Zapotec, and Jivaro should replace Caribs for the Inca alliance card.
And Quechuas could replace Tupis
I don’t think Tupi are part of it. I believe the options are Zapotec, Carib, and Mapuche. Only Mapuche makes any sense.
Well, I certainly remember Tupis among that. Maybe they were replaced but nobody documented that?
In compensation for Maya being removed from several maps, they could be added to Caribbean. The Putun Maya made trading voyages into the Caribbean.
Interesting find. Definitely makes more sense than Mayas in South America.
That could be combined with the Mexico split I suggested.
I think we could have Jesuits in the Amazon and in Florida and maps of the Caribbean. I understand that they would already be on too many maps, but it would still make sense.
Toward the end of his reign, Henry IV of France started to look at the possibility of ventures abroad, with both North America and the Levant being among the possibilities.: 43
In 1570, Spanish Jesuits moved northward from San Agustin in La Florida to establish a small mission in Virginia: the Ajacán Mission. On February 19, 1571, eight missionaries were killed by the local Indigenous.

The Jesuit missions among the Guarani were a type of settlement for the Guaraní people ("Indians" or "Indios") in an area straddling the borders of present-day Paraguay, Brazil, and Argentina (the triple frontier). The reductions were established by the Jesuit Order of the Catholic Church early in the 17th century and wound up in the late 18th century after the expulsion of the Jesuit order from the Americas. The reductions have been called an experiment in "socialist theocracy" or a rare exam In...
The Society of Jesus, or the Jesuits, owned plantations in the Americas to fund missionaries who proselytized among native peoples and enslaved Africans while ensuring that colonists remained Catholic. Fusing the roles of planters and missionaries,...
They could even be included in the map of the Andes to replace the Zapotecs.
If the developers add at least three more maps based on the Mexico/Mesoamerica region, they can remove Zapotecs and Mayans from South American maps while still keeping them in the minimum of 5 maps they want for minor civs.
I’d suggest maps based on Guatemala, Oaxaca (Zapotecs’ historical homeland) and maybe Texcoco/Tenochtitlan.
