Well, this morning we have 3 new maps to play: Brazil, Canada, and Europe.

If you find something wrong, or want comment, do a constructive criticism, hmm... this is the right place.

My first criticism, (and single one until now): small version of Europe map is smaller than it should be. The link:

Also, with the Europe map, the haze around the territory names needs to be got rid of.

2006-03-23 09:53:38 - Daz39: ok why can't moscow attack NW russia????

Those two regions appear to be adjacent but from what I gather Daz couldn't attack from one to the other.

Its a bit irretating to have to go all around Africa to take out Egypt when it clearly borders Israel

also - the Canadian map is just a mess - dont play it is my advice

Brazil looks fun though, just started playing it and so far so good :-)

Yes. it does look beautiful, but the xml needs a lot of going through to remove the (numerous) glitches...

The "bubbles" where the army numbers go.. I think they just mess with my head. They made my eyes go all wonky. And none of the groups of territories stay the same shade of color. I'm sure this was supposed to denote some kind of geographical change, but with some of the territories being so small and compact it makes it harder to tell what belongs to what.

I haven't the faintest idea how to fix these things though. :?

That one is definitely much more clear! The bold colors really help!

Grim could you please remove the haze from around the territory names on the Europe map? It makes the writing hard to read, and covers up borders and attack routes... plus I think the xml file will really need a good going over...
