Further to my previous post, I have cleared up some of the connections and tried to make things slightly more clear. I have made several small tweaks, and the following adjustments which are more significant/obvious:
  • Madagascar is now connected to South Africa.
  • Greenland is now connected to Canada with a line as well as the islands
  • I have moved the Phillipines slightly, which makes the Indonesia connection clearer. I have also moved the labels for Phillipines and Japan, and made it so there is 'white space' between Asia to help clarify that there are no borders there.
  • The Iberia-Canada connection has been 'hooked' to make this clearer. Personally I preferred a straight line path, so may consider fudging the USA/Canada border a bit around newfoundland and putting it straight again.
  • I have added a short label about the Antarctica decay; I think the simple text should be sufficient, but am not wholly convinced it's wholly legible on the small map
  • The territory label font has been changed for the 'large' map

And here are images for the map - small (300px) and large (600px), complete with tentative army placements.

This map project no longer belongs to the drafting room.

Onward and Upward!

Update is worlds clearer, I do think that the '-1's on the small map are still pretty hidden. Why not just state the negative decay directly in the text?

"Antarctica loses troops to frostbite (-1)'

The text seems legible in the small version, btw.

New Guinea looks weird - a large island (with Oceania's color) that's not actually a territory... I think you can squeeze text and another set of 8's in. And have you considered the possibility of S.A. being +3? 3 borders and 4 territories, and N.A. is not far off.

Once again, i really like this idea...

actually I was looking at apps today and found a free app called Lux USA, I made a quick video just to show how it looks and how it played, it was very simple to play, hoping lack could someday make something like that for CC, i know it would be a big job tho. Anyways check it out.

Looks like you're almost there. An updated first post with a bonus continent breakdown might help community visitors to the thread, so I took the liberty of compiling the info.

Here's what I counted and took from your first post:
Total Regions: 34
Bonus Continents: 7
Antarctica
-- bonus: +2 (with -1 decay)
-- regions: 3
-- borders: 1
Australia
-- bonus: +2
-- regions: 4
-- borders: 2
South America
-- bonus: +2
-- regions: 4
-- borders: 3
North America
-- bonus: +3
-- regions: 5
-- borders: 3
Africa
-- bonus: +3
-- regions: 5
-- borders: 3
Europe
-- bonus: +4
-- regions: 5
-- borders: 4
Asia
-- bonus: +5
-- regions: 8
-- borders: 4

What strikes me here is that Asia might be slightly undervalued, and that the adaptation of the classic bonuses has made the long-standing discrepancy between the S.America and Aussie bonus more pronounced. S.America has 1 more border than Aussie yet has the same bonus, whereas Europe has 1 more border than N.America/Africa and has a +1 bonus.

A final concern was mentioned last page, that decay regions should probably start as neutral, and in this case I'd recommend all neutral 1's for Antarctica. That would reduce your total deployable regions to 31, which is 1 shy of a 'decent' number.

Oddly enough, although I wasn't in favor of Sully's idea to add a region just when the clarity of the small-small map was looking good... it would actually address most of my gameplay concerns. The +2 bonus for S. America and Aussie would be more balanced, and Antarctica could have all neutral 1's and the map would still have a decent number for the drop.

just throwing some ideas out there...

What about Philippines to Japan?

I don't feel like Sudan and Magreb are appropriate names for the areas they're representing. Use Nile for Sudan and W. Africa for Magreb? Maybe use Sahara?

Saudi implies the ruling party of Saudi Arabia. If the king were deposed, the proper name of the place would be Arabia. I suggest middle east because I can think of nothing better. Maybe Mesopotamia. Maybe greater Persia.

I would recommend changing the name of "Saudi Arabia" to "Middle East" as there are at least 16 countries in that area (Except African part of Middle East) and using the name of 1 country for all of them isn't right, putting the name of area is much more better, like "Central Europe" you used for middle of Europe, for your info:
