I wanted to create a map of Feudal Japan.
Since I am a perfectionist I put a lot of effort into research. That means correct names and locations of castles, cities and more or less their historic significance. Terrain of course, mountains and rivers, since they change the overall strategical situation. I even researched mountainpasses. I read so much about the period, that I planned to incorporate it all and that at the right location. Historical Mines, Ninja Fortresses as well as Ikko Ikki Warrior Monasteries. Wako Pirates and proper trade routes to kyushu, China and Korea. I even had / have proper ideas how to make all of that work in game terms.
But sadly there are certain limits, that I now have to work around and hopefully can make it work nonetheless.
I will give you a sneak peak, but none of it represents the final state of the map project:
