Okay, I asked this question yesterday anonymously thus I couldn't edit it so I'm remaking it.
Long version: I want to make a Grand Strategy type game with provinces and countries. However, I'm not really an experienced graphics nor Unity programmer.
I already have a map drawn with the desired black borders with each province being defined by these very borders and each has an unique color (sort of an identifier). Having just this seems plain and complicated to use so I'd like for each province to emit a color corresponding with a selected map type (diplomacy, terrain, domains, etc.). Obviously, this would be hard to do with just a single plain texture therefore I need to make objects and this is where my inexperience blocks me from continuing.
Is there anything I can do (in Unity and/or Photoshop) that could make the provinces be objects without manually isolating, importing and matching (as a puzzle) each single one?
I've already looked at countless questions and answers but still none fit my problem. I'm at my wits' end with this to the point where I'm actually thinking about scrapping the project.
