What in the world is Kyoto doing to the East of Kansai? Kyoto is actually a part of Kansai.

On the image shown, in Cornovii (modern Shropshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire), Viroconium (modern Wroxeter) is some 25 miles to the South-East of Oswestry, not as shown. I should know, I live nearby and cycle between the two some weekends.

Hopefully this can be corrected. It seems a simple swap.

The map for this first edition of Empires in America has Detroit north of the border, in Canada:

The map has lots of oddities, ones I recall off the top of my head include Bihar being displaced onto the Tibetan Plateau and Byelorussia (i.e. Belarus) being displaced far to the north east, just inland from St Petersburg.

The Pripyet "Mountains" in Vinci. It makes for an interesting game, though.
