- Exclusive custom viewport with 3D surface mesh for terrain with customizable/realtime height, infinite horizontal scrolling (world wrap) and gorgeous effects (water, coast foam, buoyancy effect, frontier lines, PBS based, ...)
- Several Earth background textures and styles included, from 2K to 16K High-Res.
- Cloud layer with animated drop shadows over terrain.
- Artistic and animated Fog of war with simple API to clear fog over a zone of control, country or province.
- Animated / thick / smooth country borders! Use sample textures or add your own with custom color, width and patterns
- Curved map mode.
- Day/night cycle.
- Optional minimap for quick navigation.
- Smooth runtime switching between 2D and 3D viewport mode
- Dynamic country and province labels with adaptive text to the terrain.
- Smart country label placement algorithm with curved text using TextMesh Pro!
- Line drawing system with animated dashing line support to show routes, throwing arcs, on-terrain paths, ...

Ability to connect to custom tile servers.
*** OTHER MAP FEATURES ***
- Map Editor for creating or modifying countries, provinces and cities, including a territories importer tool that automatically creates frontiers based on color textures.
- Map Generator: create random world maps including countries and province borders, cities, random names and textures (heightmap, background texture, water mask, etc) using a few sliders, options and buttons!
- Customize the map as you wish: change textures or water/fog color, add textures to provinces or countries, or color fill them, ... at design or runtime.

- Custom attributes for countries, provinces, cities, mount points, grid cells and game units. JSON support.
- Calculator. Convert from lat/lon to plane coordinates and vice versa.
