Creating Fictional World

I am going to start creating a fictional world for a OOTP game. Does anyone have any tips on how to go about naming a country, cities, etc? I have found a blank, fictional map I like...

According to OOTP itself, OOTP MLB play (modern and historical) outnumbers OOTP fictional play three to one.

Five thousand thanks for a non-modder? I never thought I'd see the day. Thank you for your support.

Honestly you seem to have a great start!

For the island you could do something ending in ~alia or ~onia or something.

When I go to create the fictional game in OOTP, what Nation and Region should I set it as? Or can I edit the database to input the fictional world?

In the spirit of Ruthlandia and Tycobbia. I prefer water for the areas left white.

I tried to color then, but when I got to Easthaven, it colored that and the background. It's like when that map was created (by whoever), it wasn't separated.

There is definitely a way to modify the database. Ideally that is what you would want to do unless you want your world to have people from the "real world".

Okay. First I gotta determine how many teams I want in my league, get the divisions set up, etc. I might make a checklist of things to do.

Your island seems very British-y somehow.

Yeah, I just realized that. Maybe I'll make it a newly discovered island in the British Isles

What should I put for coordinates for all these cities? Since this island doesn't actually exists. I'm making it part of England, if that helps.
