Notice:

Don't use copyright protected images and/or assets or your modded maps will be rejected.


Guideline:

Generally, a good source for maps is the CIA. They provide all their maps as "Public Domain", so you can do with them whatever you like.
Download the PDF-version! Then scale the PDF and copy the parts you need into an image editing program. Please note that they tend to come with texts in the maps, so you'd probably want to clean them up manually. Maybe there is some way to hide text in the PDF also?

Otherwise, Wikimedia Commons has a lot of maps that can be used. Please note, if you search in Wikimedia Commons, make sure it either says "Public Domain", "CC-BY" or "CC0". You cannot use "CC-BY-SA" on the other hand. I'll suggest if in doubt, post your map of choice here and we'll comment if it's OK!

Another option is to ask permission from the original author to use their image in the game! If they agree, tell the to message me at contact at ageofconquest to com from their official email account so that I can verify.


Reasoning

I am not planning on going to jail or pay hefty legal fees & fines for maps that are clearly in the copyright and cannot be used. If in doubt, please post the image in question here and we'll say if it is OK to use or not!
