wait. with battlefield you mean current version with "only" opposite armies (without battlefields as regions) or this* old version with battlefields as regions?

thanks. yes the legend and wording is allways nightmare for me
iancanton wrote:the map tries to cover too much territory, with the result that western and central europe, where the war was largely won and lost, looks tiny, while the ottoman empire has too many regions shown compared with its role in the war.
I know problem about Ottoman Empire. becasue the Ottoman Empire is easy to secure I add there more regions to gain this bonus harder. also this side of map is a little "closed" with a little maneuver possibilities. this needs to be solved...
iancanton wrote:u're attempting to show the russian revolution too, which adds unnecessary complexity to the bonuses: the russian empire by itself is enough, while moscow, samara, the railway and the don cossacks participated in the russian revolution rather than the great war.
yes on one side you are right, but on the another side the revolution was part of these times and it adds realistic feature. maybe if we try more simple way how to add revolution there?

but we "need" Caucasus because the connection between Russian Empire and Ottoman Empire here is the bigest problem...
I have approval for supersize (I am not big fan of supersized maps, but maybe so complex map as this could be supersized), so what do you think - make this map as supersized?
iancanton wrote:after u do this, try rotating the playable area clockwise by 30 degrees and zoom in slightly with the playable area centred on vienna or munich, while using the space east of the petrograd-alexandria line for a unified legend.
to be honest I rotate map to the left becasue it gived me more space .

iancanton wrote:why is corsica shown as independent? it was, and is, french! maybe it's best not to name corsica, but simply have it as an unplayable region in the french colour;
to be honest I do not kow why I made Corsica independent . I like idea to kick off it as playable region.

will be not Italy too closed? only Lombardy and Cyrenaica must be secured to hold Kingdom of Italy.
I am glad for your advices and thank you ian
