  • Bonus Areas:
    • Russian (A): +4 or +5
    • The Stanz (B): +4
    • Siberian (C): +4 √
    • Chinese (D): +10
    • Japanese (E): +2 √
    • Ottoman (F): +2 √
    • Arabian (G): +2
    • Iranian (H): +3
    • Pakistani (I): +3 √
    • Indian (J): +4
    • Southeast Asian (K): +5
    • Indonesian (L): +2 √
    • Philippino (M): +1
    • All Yerevan: +3 √
    • All Dushanbe: +4 √
    • (All of the above values are based on number of borders, number of territories, position, and expansion potential.)
  • Other:
    • I think the neutrals on TYO E, TAF H, KHI I, and CAI FG are unnecessary, as the drop percentage is still pretty low without them.
    • In your signature, you seem to point that this map is post-1999, yet one of the rails is named after the Ottoman Empire? Is it still called that today?

thanks Sully for that input.
Do you think the connections are solid for gameplay or could they be made better?

The map is set anytime in the future, so for providence sake i have said 2050.
For instance
1. technically Cairo is in Africa - should that be changed to Port Said?
2. should there be a see route from MNL to HCM
3. should AKY join to VOG with same station type as AST
4. is China too large - should it be broken into eastern and westrn china for smaller bonuses.

Okay.

1. Sure, that sounds good.
2. Nah, I don't think it's necessary, and I think it would just look weird and "out of line" (pun intended).
3. No, I think A and B are already reasonably hard to hold.
4. No, I don't think so, I like the diversity it adds bonus value-wise. But, if you break apart KUN and ULB into 2 territories, it would make the bonus much more possible to achieve.

Well for the purposes of discussion, is there any merit to adding any of the following connectioms?

A) IST to TLV
B) MHD to AKY
C) switch the KHI to NDH to a KHI to MBA

No strong feelings on any of these but they do seem to be worth discussing.

Peter, thanks so much for commenting. :)
A) is defintiely doable.
B) MHD to AKY - Aktay is a beachside resort on the Caspian Sea. So that is doable also. There isn't a lot to the north for a connection to VOG. But there is a highway from north of MHD Mashhad to AKY.
C) I wouldn't replace the Karachi to New Delhi line between those two capitals, but i could place the other line betwee Karachi and Mumbai, if that makes strategic sense.
There should really be a line between New Dehli and Islamabad, but there is not room, so i reluctant to pull out the other line between KHI and NDH
