I'll probably have to scrap the verny-novosibirsk line too, it seems it wasn't built until 1930:s...

I believe I wish to further deviate from the gameplay of OE with this map, and I believe I will do it thus:

"Industrial Centers"? That seems cool. Do you have a reason for their placement?

Sigh... I meant are there industrial centers where you placed them on the map or are they placed strategically for gameplay reasons?

What's more, I just checked, and the territory count is good too if all stations & industrial centers are coded as neutrals.

42 = golden number.

I'm liking the map so far. Do you have to hold the stations within the areas to get land bonuses?

I think you could darken the colour for China a bit; for my eyes it blends with Mongolia too well...
Also to me the mountain impassables aren't very clear, especially when bordering East Russia as they're a similar shade.

Could you move the 888 and name for Tuva up a bit? And maybe Zavkhan slightly to the right?

Oh yeah and I think the bonus for North Russia is a little high, 3 might be better when compared to Mongolia.
Important Tournament Notice

The data for ALL of my tournaments has potentially been lost. I am working to recover it but as I am away on business all of this week, there will be some delay. Sincere apologies.

no, they're separate from the land bonuses.

I'll deal with the graphics after the gameplay is done... this is just a gameplay draft, it is not meant to represent the final graphical form of the map.

As for north russia, I agree.

My major issue with the map is the fonts. They just don't...fit. The title's great in that regard, but the territory names look bland and the explanation text doesn't quite match the "imperfect" style you're going for. The degradation looks more like graphical flaws than intentional additions for thematic accuracy.

Yeah, the font does seem to be off, but wouldn't that be dealt with later? This is just the Melting Pot.

Nice 3D effects! I can't say which I like better, the one with the title at the top or the one with the title in the legend...
