That's very nice of you, thanks!
I've replaced the old map with a new, revised version. Many, many landmarks were added, lands were revamped to fit more closely to their in-game visage, there was some continents and islands rearranging and more. Endless Ocean is less endless now, but judging from the MM6 intro, there's not so much space between the continents.
What caught my attention were enrothian roads. As for the one leading to Agar's laboratory through a frozen wasteland, it's a bit of a stretch, I guess. But who knows, maybe someone was attending to it, so it's not hidden beneath the snow. On the other hand, road leading to Abdul's desert resort straight through the Dragonsands was too much and I've decided to not place it on a map. As those roads are pre-silence, the desert part would have to survive the Day of Fire, years of abandonment and tons of sand. When you come to think of it, from what exactly the Ancients produced them
I've added more towns, especially on Antagarich, they were mostly taken from non-randomized town names found in H3 campaigns.
There's a region added on Enroth which placement concerns me and the fact that the whole continent is apparently re-imagined between H2 and MM6 doesn't help either
. Carator Mountains were placed to the south of Free Haven, close to Darkmoor. As they were supposed to be south from the initial battles of the Succesion Wars and in some distance from the dwarven domain, it seemed to be the best location for them.

Yep, there's no doubt there should be a lot more islands here and there on the Endless Ocean, yet we know virtually nothing about their exact location, shape and name. I've decided to add only those islands about which we have at least symbolical knowledge. Thanks to that the map is, hopefully, venturing less into the fanon territory
So, here's the revised map:
