There'll be a loud uproar about the Alaska-Kamchatka connection being absent. I suggest moving Alaska a little East more, so that it doesn't look like it's going "around" the map.

I feel that Alaska is too prominent in all of the maps on conquer club. Does anyone even like that state anymore? No. It'll be the great American oil field in 10 years anyways. I say remove that territ, and make it into one "Great White North" or "America's Hat" territory. My only suggestion.

Too bad you're late, I already did ;) (although mine is not a world map...)

Anyway, I think S.A. should have a +3 bonus. +2 doesn't quite seem worth it for 4 terts and 3 borders...

Alternatively, you could switch the Antarctica-Argentina connection to Brazil-Antarctica, reducing SA:s borders to 2. This way it really would be equal with Aus.

the trouble with showing antarctica is that the three big continents, which contain 90% of the developed world, are squashed into less than half of the visible area. 5 of the 6 normal continents are now of a similar size.

rather than force a previous model on to a 34-region map, why not try to tailor the gameplay to work specifically for the small size? u've cut down the number of regions, so a 5-continent world will let us have more strategic variety than a 7-continent one. to throw an idea into the ring, i suggest 30 regions split into 4 normal continents that focus mainly on the northern hemisphere where most cc players live (allowing us to cut off the bottom of the current map and stretch vertically the top half to make it less squashed), being americas, europe, asia and oceania, plus a single-region neutral-starting africa that decays by 1 each turn to represent famine (a rough equivalent of antarctica on ur map, but with a serious point to make)?

That's an interesting proposal, though Africa is the second-largest continent in the world... Kind of hard to ignore, though admittedly, it's not exactly the best continent to control militarily, with famine (like you said), and difficult nations that likely aren't capable of assisting one in his conquest. Certainly something to try-out.

Are you planning on continuing with this project, MrBenn? It has "benn" awhile...

I'm not sure how I'd feel if I played random map and this came up. I like to be able to see what's going on in exquisite detail, and some of those regions are quite close together from the perspective of a clickable-mapper, so you might consider making the large version a more standard size; just for my benefit, of course.
Then again, that really would detract from the point of this map. Otherwise, fantastic idea. I might have to get an android phone just to play this map.

As this is in the gameplay workshop after all, I'll just add that I'd probably increase all of those bonuses by 1 troop with the exception of NA, as you've got more borders per region than on the classic map by the looks of it (SA, Africa and Oceania are more difficult to hold with the inclusion of Antarctica, at any rate). I hope to see this moved onto the next workshop soon and the project continued with.

So are most of the complaints about the size? If I'm going to make the map bigger, then I'll probably need to take this in a slightly different direction and up the territory count to make a bigger-than-classic-but-not-as-big-as-world-2.1 map

That was just 40kguy and ManBungalow, and even ManBungalow said to just make the large version standard size. So, I really don't think you need to take a new direction with this. It would be neat to see what this map would look like set up Moon Race-style, where Asia is on the left and the Americas on the right. That way, you can have the famous Alaska-Kamchatka border. And those two are a heck of a lot closer to each other than Maghreb-Brazil, Iberia-Canada, and Scandinavia-Greenland. Just something to consider. It would make this map a little more fresh, in my opinion.

Here's a graphical comment: Might want to make South Africa considerably lighter or darker to contrast it with Madagascar.

Also, the borders around northern Europe-Greenland aren't really clear on the small map -- or the large one for that matter.

After a fortnightly review, I noticed there hasn't been an update for sometime. So, come the next fortnightly review, if there isn't an update made, we will have to move into the Recycling Bin until the mapmaker makes an update. :cry:
