I go with a region name if its available, but sometime the city is the best thing to name a region after if you're using the region name elsewhere. So, for example, if you broke a big region in two pieces you could name one after the actual region name and the other after the nearest large city.

If Latvia and Lithuania would have "correct" regions (i.e. regions on the map like they are in real life then I would suggest to use the region names). But, as you can't do that (it would be insane to have either 5 or ~100 regions for Latvia, if I remember correctly looking at the real life map) then I would suggest using city names as it's easier to determine biggest city in the region rather than decide what regions are more/less important in there or how you drew the borders exactly. And, for the sake of unity, in my opinion, you should use regions for two countries and cities for the third one.

it seems that you have correct regions of Estonia and also of Lithuania, so you can go with original regions names.
here are as they are and with names:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counties_of_Lithuania
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counties_of_Estonia

about Latvia, maybe you could go with this and divide some regions (norht Kurzeme/south Kurzeme, east Zemgale/west Zemgale...)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planning_regions_of_Latvia

if not, I agree with amazzony.

I'm glad to see somebody pick up a map of The Baltics; there was a reasonable draft that somebody started once before, but it never ended up going anywhere - I'm assuming you're looked up the old thread?

I check all 3 threads....

Scania13

Captain Walrus

and the one with the draft still there.

I took a look at all the concerns with those maps. I am working on impassables, names etc. I want to keep pressing with the issues at hand and work from there.

My suggestions for remaining Latvia (cities):

Latvia 1 -> Daugavpils
Latvia 2 -> Kraslava
Latvia 3 -> Ludza
Latvia 4 -> Rēzekne
Latvia 5 -> Balvi
Latvia 6 -> Jēkabpils
Latvia 9 -> Nereta
Latvia 10 -> Ogre
Latvia 12 -> Valka
Latvia 13 -> Valmiera
Latvia 19 -> Saldus
Latvia 22 -> Kuldīga
Jelgava -> Dobele

Used this map, it should be quite accurate: http://www.atozmapsdata.com/zoomify.asp ... atvia_Pol2

Hope it will help.

As always---if you need name and language assistance, check CC's scoreboard for someone living in the region. Most of the time people have proved eager to help when they've been notified about such things!

I'm from Latvia and can tell that amazzony is correct. i can only make a little bit correction with writing if you want it in native language. To be correct it was only one correction, other corrections is for towns and cities which are already written in the map.
Oh and made one change of a town - Nereta for Aizkraukle (more known and bigger)
And don't change Dobele for Jelgava as Jelgava is bigger and more known town.

Latvia 1 -> Daugavpils
Latvia 2 -> Krāslava
Latvia 3 -> Ludza
Latvia 4 -> Rēzekne
Latvia 5 -> Balvi
Latvia 6 -> Jēkabpils
Latvia 9 -> Aizkraukle

Latvia 19 -> Saldus
Latvia 22 -> Kuldīga
Riga - Rīga
Limbazi - Limbaži
Cesis - Cēsis
Liepaja - Liepāja

Maybe you don't want to use those macrons and soft signs then just write without them ;)

Re: Baltic States: Version 5 Pg 5 Impassables?

Postby Bruceswar on Fri May 13, 2011 4:30 am

I few quick points...

1. Which rivers are most important?
2. How readable is the font at current for the territory names?
3. How should the bonuses be named? Any suggestions?
4. Anything else you can see that needs to be done right now?
