i did not add language strings
i removed all "pacts/entente/unions" there was sure no "STR_BALKANPACT" in that region at 1999
the other country fixes were new african countries (STR_DRCONGO, STR_ETHIOPIA, STR_ANGOLA, STR_ALGERIA, STR_MOZAMBIQUE, STR_IVORY, STR_KENYA (selection based on size, population and gdp lists) to make up for the loss of the "african union"
and splitting australia and new zealand into two countries
all of these + prague would need new strings i also did not make usefull founding values entries
this thread just needed  a bump with the new border functionality and the easy one can now edit borders, country boxes and city placements https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php?topic=2835.0
so hopefully it can be revived and supsuper can be convinced that in regard to border a "replace" instead of "add" would be better to e.g. fix clunky russian borders

Are you able to add the English strings ?
I always get an error message.
If I add Prague first, OK, but after, well, nothing works.

Great work you did.
I'll use it one day.

"easy" fix would be options to purge all borders loaded by previous mods.

i think it unlikely that there will be  mods "mexico.rul" and "iran.rul" to add single countries and their borders where an "add functionality" would be useful
but i can imagine many uses for a full replacement
you can recolour the borders and use them for something else
borders have no functionality in itself
e.g. in tftd the borders are rivers
making a scenario with completely different factions nation borders in the past/future
i can imagine making new planets where the borders e.g. energy lines/structures to fit some storyline
also
making "more correct" borders like this https://imgur.com/8zj22F7 would be nice

so my "fix" would be "replace" instead add

this would be better.

It should also be possible to replace "Polygons" defined in the World.dat, which is loaded in the standard ruleset.

SupSuper changed the behaviour like described now if you want to change borders you need to have ALL borders in your rulefile

please confirm that this mod is working with the latest nightly build. nations and regions seem to change, but no cities show up beyond vanilla ones.

This mod is only partially compatible with the latest nightly - the nightlies introduced changes to the missionZones (which include the cities) a long time ago.

thank you for the quick reply.
what do you think, is it possible to make it compatible? could missionZones be altered to include the cities without seriously changing missions themselves? i'm a bit into this ruleset thingy but does not quite understand the structure of regions (and i don't want to dive inside).
or do you happen to know of other mods that include cities?

You'll need to convert the 64 city entries to the new format used on the nightlies. And probably there are more conversions required elsewhere on the ruleset, I don't remember all the changes made to these sections since 1.0

You can compare the 1.0 ruleset to the nightlies using these links:

Have you checked the Terrain Pack?
