Hi community!

After the launch of the Globe Edition, we're happy to announce the availability of World Political Map - 2D Edition V4​.

World Political Map - 2D Edition adds to your scene a beautiful and interactive 2D political map with selectable countries and states/provinces.

* Procedurally draws the frontiers of 241, +4000 provinces and states and the location of the 1249 biggest or most populated cities in the world!
* Interactive map: regions of countries, provinces/states and cities highlight as you pass the mouse over them. The interactive functionality is provided as API and a demo scene is included showing how you can add mouse selection, dragging, zooming with the wheel mouse, show tooltips, fly between countries or cities, make countries flash, fit the window to the width and/or height of the screen, etc.
* Automatically draws country labels with placement options.
* Colorize countries, provinces/states or entire continents! highlight any region of the world from code with just one call (example: ToggleCountrySurface("Russia", visible, Color.Red).
* Per country texture support! Assign your own textures to any number of countries, with offset, scale and rotation options.
* Find and fly smoothly to any country, state, province or city by its name from current position: you can make the globe rotate smoothly from current position to any country or city just calling one method and provide the name of the destination. You can also set the movement speed or go instantly (set time to zero).
* Two city catalogs included. Filter cities by population and/or size.
* Two levels of details for frontiers at 100.00.000:1 and 50.000.000:1 scale.
* Imaginary lines: draw latitude, longitude and cursor lines.
* Lots of customization options: frontiers colors, highlight color, visibility of cities/frontiers/Earth, labels, ... 6 Earth styles included, one high-res (8K).
* Can be instantiated and controlled by code (API and documentation provided).
* Custom editor inspector with 3 extra awesome components: Calculator (converter between plane coordinates and lat/lon), Tickers (scrolling, blinking or fading texts over the map) and Decorator (customize countries with specific labels, colors and textures!).
* No internet access required. Geographic data included in the asset, which does not use Google Maps nor any other map provider. Make it very fast and works offline!
* Mobile friendly: tested on Android and iOS.
* Source code included (C#) and documented so you can adapt it to your project easily.

This edition is aimed at developers who do not require the advanced features of the full 2D Edition but still need a lightweight, interactive map with selectable countries.

It's cheaper (only $30 vs $70 full 2D version) but also comes with a reduced feature set.
