WIP Map Thread

Progress on Europe. Not happy with the Netherlands and not sure how to do southeast England (I have a rule of no city-states).
I would have kept the German states as is for the most part; but just merge Berlin into Brandenburg, Hamburg into S-H, and Bremen into Lower Saxony. You could split Franconia from Bavaria and North Rhine-Westphalia into its two parts if need be.

Some progress has been made...
No offense, but you do know the context of Years of Rice and Salt, right? Europe's population is absolutely devastated by the Black Plague. 99% is ASB obviously, even if you reduce it to like three-quarters (which is still probably ASB, but we'll go with that), there's no way Castile-Leon & France is colonizing the Americas & Africa, why is there some space-filling HRE in the Sahara? Why is every alt-his Aztecs (who are romantically imagined as "stable") going into otl Texas? Why is Africa always fucked over in alt-his, China couldn't properly colonize Taiwan for hundreds of years, you think they're going to have a fun time in South Africa and the Philippines? It takes one bad day to completely change Chinese foreign policy.
Don't get it twisted, please finish the map, just don't call it "realistic".

so it begins
 
Castile-Leon & France is colonizing the Americas & Africa, why is there some space-filling HRE in the Sahara?
Castile-Leon and France aren't there anymore. I used modified versions of their color schemes (not modified enough apparently) for the countries that replaced them after North Africans moved into the desolated areas. I'm trying to sort out borders in the Sahara and was just using that color because I had it on hand honestly. There's not going to be an HRE in exile in the Sahara (thought that is an interesting thought, but definitely not for this project). I'm assuming that the experience of repopulating Europe created a bit more of an expansionist ideology amongst the peoples responsible.
 
So is the center of North America a native state
Yes. I am trying to stay in the same general direction as the original YORAS, so the there is a large native state in the centre of North America.

The blue isn't the French. It's the (I still need a name for) countries born from the North African colonization of what was France before the super-plague hit. I need to change the color more.

If this is the case, you need to change their colors completely, and their internals (afaik) look almost identical to the French and Castilian internals. No new nations in Europe would make shop and decide to keep the exact borders of the former Kingdoms.

I'm not convinced. There's much to exploit in the lands of Europe that faring across the ocean just seems nonsensical. These peoples, the Berbers, Arabs, Africans, whoever it would be that colonize Europe would not have a significantly high population. American colonies relied on consistent immigration and supplies from the "homelands", that won't be the case for these new European nations for centuries. There are so many other factors that lead to colonizing the Americas and Africa that are never going to be present in this wildly different Europe. I don't think you realize how lucky and accidental it was that Europeans became the center for colonial empires.

Perhaps have a green color for France? My suggestion is to have colors completely different from the ones that are usually used for Christian Italy, Spain, France, etc.

So this is almost done... Note that I did delete the flags I prepared for this WiP because I can, but the seven entries with a square in the lower-left corner already have a flag.

Libya and Chad. Behold the long-named state of Fezzan-Tibesti-Chad! Doesn't compare against North Balochistan-South Pashtunistan, Red Sea-Dongola-Kassala, or Jammu-Kashmir-Ladakh-Chitral-Gilgit-Baltistan, though.
