But others seem pretty redundant. We already have Mesopotamia (Fertile Crescent), and splitting Sakhalin in two is just silly. It’s not that big, is sparsely populated, and wasn’t even mapped until the 1800s. Overall, I’d like to see them finish filling in Asia something like this, and also adding some in the Americas.
A lot of them are way too big to be represented by a single map like they are now, which is why I’m mostly suggesting splits. The variety of minor civs from South America is way too small for such a diverse region, and Zapotecs and Mayas don’t belong there, but the devs won’t remove the last two from South America anytime soon since they want every minor civ to appear in at least 5 maps.
And I think Asian people are also too diverse to be represented by only a few religious settlements, half of which are Indian.
Edit: it’s a bit incorrect to say half the holy sites are Indian now that they reworked Sufi and added Tengri, but there’s still little diversity with the holy sites.
And anyway, I think they can both add new maps to already explorer (but poorly represented, in my opinion) and add new regions, instead of adding just “some more” to America and Asia.
Also, I compiled that list in the middle of the night, so I only listed stuff I already knew about or was willing to look up on such short notice. I probably wouldn’t be the best person to suggest polynesian maps.
Actually, Canada, Alaska and the Andea need a split as well. Imo at least.
To do it properly they need to be willing to move and rename the maps to be more accurate and make room for new ones. For example, the Plymouth map doesn’t even contain Plymouth. Most of Canada is missing because of the distorted map and South America has a pretty odd selection of areas represented.
For native sites, only South America is in urgent need of new content. The addition of Tengri and Sufi rework fixed the worst of the problems. It would be nice if they made a new home for war elephants and added a Bedouin option for Africa and western Asia. Inuit could also spice up the north. A few others like Habsburgs need a rework for their units and techs.
