The Historical Scenario Commission has now finished final updates for 1788-1808.

The base map I used for that first map doesn't include the information you are talking about and I didn't plan ahead as well as I should have (it was the first one I did). I have to stretch and contort other maps on top of the base map to make some of the final maps and I just didn't go back and re-do the whole thing after I decided on a more consistent style.

I am capable of doing it though, and I agree it would look more consistent. I don't think it's a bad looking map, but the gradient overlay isn't really used anywhere else (and I only included it to help fill out the space more and to provide historical context).

I was also thinking about uploading some alternate or themed maps people can plug into scenarios, so I'll make sure a re-do of the first map is released too. Some of the upcoming scenarios (like 1820) will also come with alternate maps that represent how borders changed between the beginning and end of the election.

I actually have a series of gradient maps in that mold with areas intended to be non-interactive at certain points for my Canada 1867-Present series that I plan on (one fine day) taking on for PMI, and project I've had in mind for quite a while (since PM4E2008 was the most advanced Westminster game engine), so I immediately recognized the format, even this early on, and thus the inconsistency in the early maps.
