Filling in the Frontier map

Man this is so hard to see what is and what isn't filled in. Big chunks of the wilderness have dark blue swirls over em, despite being discovered. :/

I had trouble with this as Turn the brightness way up and if you move the map around there is a light area in the backgroud that moves around a little. Try to line up the parts of the map you want to look at with the bright area.

The maps in this game are a freaking joke. Why even have viewpoints if they don't open up everything like in the past games?

I sure mowed through a lot of blank areas in NY and Boston while waiting for another courier to drop. Filled in a lot more looking for pivots in the Frontier. LOTS of pixel mowing!

I heard if you look with the hunting region overlay it's easier to spot places you need to uncover. I haven't started this BS yet myself though.

You dont need to get ALL of the map, just most of it. Collecting chests, feathers, hunting, and other missions will fill in a great chunk of it. Then just fill in all the rivers and lakes, follow every path. Basically they are much easier to pick out on the map so filling them in is simple. Every pixel counts so there is no reason not to. Mine popped with not even half of the paths fully discovered and I still have large blocks of unexplored terrain.

The frontier was the easiest one to uncover because of all the hunting i did

I did this in Sequence 6 or 7, hunting beavers, and got the exploration for the map before I even had the whole frontier available to me. This seems to be the way to do it.

Also, I've found that if you look at the hunting map and uncover the areas along the borders of each hunting zone, you'll get the challenge done. Just look at the hunting map and run up and down each side of every border to each zone. Takes maybe an hour or two, and you can hunt/kill patrols/attack convoys while you're out there.
