Map-It Civilization VI: Gathering Storm Full Map – Seas, Lakes, and Bays Oh My! Update

TL;DR – Every single feature of Civilization 6 (at time of posting) in one map, this time with Lakes, Seas, and Oceans

This week we got the latest update to Civilization VI: Gathering Storm, and along with the boosted Industrial Zones and several pages of patch notes there was the announcement of the game adding water features to its growing list of geographical features. We have mapped Civ VI in the past as part of our Map-It Project, and I am always a completionist, so I thought it would be quick to add in a couple of lakes. Well three solid days of work later and it was not the quick job I expected, but it was a rewarding one as I got to learn more about the geography of the Earth while brushing up on my Māori.

 Now as always, a couple of notes before we start, first the Civilization boundaries on the map are based more on clarity than anything else, so in most cases, they conform to their modern counterparts. We have also worked using the commonly implemented political borders, not necessarily what nations claim, and this means making some judgement calls which you will see below. Also, while all attempts have been made to make sure that everything is accurately placed, putting this together meant working from multiple different sources, and map projections, and as such, no matter how much you try there might be some slight discrepancies here and there.

We will be mostly going over the new additions and changes to the map in this update, if you want to learn more about some of the location choices that we made you can find more detail in our First Full Civilization Big Map and out Gathering Storm Update Map.  

Finally, after the break there will be a lot of large images, so now is the time to check that you are on WiFi and are not using Mobile Data. Also a quick shout out to sonicmyst, God of Kings, Eagle Pursuit, Zaarin and SeelingCat over at the Civfanatics Forum for helping me with some of the obscure lakes I was having trouble locating.

We begin our tour with Africa, the home of civilization, out of all the maps, this is one with probably the least major changes. This is because most of the lakes had already been added in and because the continent is still a bit light when it comes to civilizations so it does not have the coverage of some of the others.

One area that was already very crowded and now is even more so is the Nile Delta, I’m not sure how much more I can fit in there, but we’ll see. Another note, you might see some odd Ocean names here and there in some of the maps, there have been a number of prehistoric Oceans added in as part of the features list. In these maps what I have done is put them as close as is practically possible as they would appear today. Also, I still hope they add Ethiopia one day, for no other reason that it would be great to fill in that Nile map one day.

Well, our next area is the one that has probably had the biggest change since our last map. Part of this is because Europe has the most civilizations so it took a lot of work to get everything to fit in places. But also I took advantage of the new map to fix two of the issues that were really grating to me. The first was the German coastline, which I was never happy with, and now looks a lot better, though it necessitated some river realignments which took a long time.

The second big change is that we can see our first European Insert in this map with The Netherlands. In the last map it became clear that there were too many features in the one small area but I sort of made it work, however with lakes in the mix, there was no way it would not look awful, so I sidestepped that and moved it out to an insert that I am much happier about.

This is also a good time to talk about how the sausage is made. Because this is made in Photoshop and uses multiple layers to make it work, it meant that adding lakes took a very long time. To keep them consistent across all the maps and in places where there was no territory, this meant removing layers until you hit the blue background, which was fine in some places, but it others meant that the one lake needed multiple layers to be edited which took a surprising about of time. Indeed just the lakes took over 1 and a half days of solid work to add.

With the update comes some changes to the greater Scandinavian Peninsular, mostly from the large numbers of lakes added into Norway. Also, I thought I had added enough detail to the water systems near Stockholm but I was wrong. Finally, I had wondered whether to add Finland’s lakes when I made the map last time, but when you look at a map of Finland’s lakes, it becomes quite daunting. This meant that I opted for the ‘gah leave it alone’ choice last time. Well, this time we had an addition, so Finland I hope you are happy because one of you thousands of lakes are now in the game.

The Mediterranean

Given that The Mediterranean once went by many names like “The Great Sea” it would not be surprising to find out that it has probably the largest concentration of new ocean features added in this update. I got quite familiar with all the different gulfs in and around Chalkidiki which took some creative manoeuvring to get them to fit. I’m still not quite happy with how the Black Sea coastline looks, and I might look at fixing that in the next update.     

The Middle East and Central Asia

When we look at The Middle East and Central Asia we come across my biggest surprise when putting this list together. There is not a single lake used in the entire Arabian Peninsula. There is also that big Babylon shaped hole in this map that I am still wondering if it will be filled.

Turkey has and continues to be the most complicated part of the map. We have cities from Greece, Macedonia, Persia, Arabia, Phoenicia, and The Ottomans with City States and Natural and World Wonders on top of that. This meant that there had to be some creative manoeuvring of some of the lakes around some of the features. All of this makes the prospect of them adding in Byzantium at some point to be a little terrifying as there is very little room left.

Once again there have been no major changes to Russia this time around, however, as it was the only Civilization that ended up not being featured intact in any one single map I thought it would be good to give it a little feature here.

There are very few changes of note to East Asia, but I did get to increase my knowledge about Indonesian lakes so that’s something. Also once again we get more additions to The Philippines, even though there is no Civilization attached to it. We’ll talk a bit more about that a bit later. One thing that did become clear this time around is that I am not happy with how Japan looks on this map, and I think if I come back to this map in the future then I will have to update it.

Now we come to my part of the world as we explore Australia, New Zealand, and the surrounding area with Oceania. With Australia, I had to do some interesting calculations as to how to represent the lakes, as most of them are at best seasonal, but many of them are just large salt pans. So I went with my heart and made them as big as they would be if there was a real rain event.

Another difficult area to get everything to fit ended up being New Zealand, which is once again probably the most feature dense region on the map. I had to do some creative manoeuvring around to get all the lakes to fit around Taupo. However, with the addition of Lake Taupo, I can now say that you should do yourself a favour and google the Huka Falls. Also, Oceania has one of only two cases of a name double up in all of the new water features.     

North and Central America

We now head over to the Americas and we come across our second new insert for this map with the Valley of Mexico making an appearance. It was already crowded on the map and while I could get some of the lakes to fit, it just looked bad, so to an insert it goes, and it looks a lot better. With North America, we also get our second and final dual sea location with the Hudson Bay and I got to add some more of Canada’s many, many, many lakes.  

South America

With South America we get another map where not a whole lot has changed, however, it does seem that I did not predict very will which lakes would be important when doing the base map.     

Unlinked Geographical Features

Over on the Civfanatics forum, user Luxerne went through the code and collated a list of Geographical features that exist in the game but who are not tied to any pre-existing civilization. The hope being to find if there are any areas that stand out where we could see a potential new civilization. After mapping it out my gut says that in most cases it just feels like these are extra features added in case someone blows through their own list.

There are a lot of features in The Philippines, which is interesting but with Manilla being on the Spain city list, it could just be that someone in the Firaxis office is a Philippines fan. There are also a couple of cases in and around Turkey that seems to be mistaken omissions from civilization lists more than anything else. However, after all of that, there is one area where this might draw some fruit because there are a lot of geographic features in Ethiopia that are not tied to any civilization, but that might just be wishful thinking on my part for wanting Ethiopia in the game.
