I'm completely new to all this.
I'm trying to make a map of Han dynasty-era China for a mod for a game called Crusader Kings 2.
I've downloaded QGIS and Natural Earth 2, but I need this image to align with the rest of the map so I can use it as a guide for province boundaries.
I tried georeferencing the image, and I managed to get it added as a layer, but even with on-the-fly projection conversion, QGIS refused to show it at the same time as any other layer.
This was the result.
I'm also open to suggestions on any simpler methods I could use if QGIS is overkill for what I'm trying to do.
