Both the highlighted countries and the text are just images afaik. I don’t think you can make it bigger without rewriting a lot of world map code; you’re probably limited to whatever sized image they used to highlight countries. Most people decide that the fe8 world map is far too much of a pain to be worth working with, so they instead create backgrounds of their world map to show in events.

This guide might be relevant to you:

Having messed around with the world map borders, they’re just images. Something we have noticed however is that the borders we have replaced them with have sometimes had junk pixels show up, likely related to what Vesly was saying about sizes.

Regardless you can find the images and replace them fairly easily in FEBuilder. Just export the originals, edit and import the new ones.

I think I explained this a long time ago, but it may have been on discord.

Let’s flip the Frelia territory and rename it a bit








Never destroy the palette because of palette animation.
Use software that can handle palettes properly, such as edge.

The file is divided into two parts: territory and name.
When IMPORTing, select the one for the territory (the one not labeled NAME) and import it.
When you import the territory, the NAME one is automatically imported as well.
These two files must be in the same directory.
Understand that they are two in one set.

Sometimes the import fails.
This is because this image is quite difficult to format.
If this is the case, try changing the shape of the territory a little.


This is what I was trying to do, but failed because I suck. Thanks for helping again, I’m just stupid.

I think it’s probably too big.
We should consider the size of the original Grado territory to be the limit.
