This is incorrect.

Take the L'viv map, for instance. Indeed, the grid overlay is 1:1 scale (10km square equals 10km, etc.), but underneath the grid the actual map itself is about 85% scale. This results in the cities and towns on the map being 15% smaller and closer together than they would be if they were 100% scale.

For example, in the game's map, when measured at the same latitude the centers of L'viv and Krosno are about 140km apart, whereas when measured from the same points on a real chart they are about 163km apart.

Other maps in the game similarly are at reduced scales, and some are quite obviously way below scale, the Libya-Crete map being a example of this, with a much-reduced and out-of-place Sicily being added as well.

The 'micro machines' look comes from missing details and too simple lighting - thats all. If you fly over the villages of the Slovakia map, you will see, that it can look quite realistic.

It's the most beautiful map in the game, though. Gorgeous.
