I think if India figures so much in this map, it should not be so monolithic, and if it is all one bonus region, it should not have so many territories. On a similar note, the Russian regions would be impossible to defend (and I still think East Turkestan would make a good bonus).

North Vietnam is a large tert. I'd fracture it further. As for Japan I'd look at just including Kyushu on your map. Put Korean ownership to it.

I can combine some of India's territories so that it would come to about 14 total. As for Russia, I still haven't added in any extra mountains to help make it more easily defend (though not to easy). East Turkestan well that would be where the map name is, so I think I will forgo adding it in.

Yes I will be enlarging and fracturing that territory up on my next update.

My suggestions (in form of image):

-Keep Xinjiang (or Sinkiang), as opposed to grouping it with Russia.
-Keep Xizang (or Tibet), as opposed to grouping it with India.
-Split Mongolia up into Inner Mongolia, and true Mongolia.

I think you need to keep rolling with the "fractured" idea, the last update combined too much. there are too many big bloated bonuses that will be impossible to take and difficult to hold.

How about expanding this into "Fractured Asia". You are covering most of it now anyway.

Yeah, I'd severely cut some of those Indian and russian territories, at this rate this map is losing its focus on China.

And I Suggest Giving Russia Vladivodstok As Capital

Plus You Made A Typo On Yellow Sea Making It Yelow Sea :lol:

Thank you. As for your first suggestion, yes it could be done but I'll wait to iron that out in GP. You are the second person to mention Fractured Asia, maybe but I think I would like to focus on China for right now ... but you never know ;)

The Russian capital will stay where it is for now as most people are familiar with Irkutsk. Oh how I hate typo's :oops: Will be changed on next update.

For now I will be focusing on getting the legend done so this can get into GP where we can discuss more of the game play.

On the map I have it is spelled with one "s". I'll dig into and find out for sure.

No, I don't mean revert back to China, I mean condense and merge some of those Indian territories in India proper, same for Russia. India should be more like 7-10 territories. Russia maybe 6-7.

I'm not sure if Laos is playable or not, but you might as well throw it in the Vietnam bonus and call it greater Indochina.

And you might want a bridge to connect Shaxi to the rest of the territories it supposedly has political control over. I mean, if that river prevents armies from getting across... how is it that Shanxi is maintaining control over them?

Ok, understood! I know have Russia at 8 territories and India down to 13. Compared to Canada and Amexica in FA, I'd say they are comparable.

As for the capitals I was thinking of having them as separate territories to be included as part of the bonus region. If I do that then I will have 78 total territories. If I have all capitals start neutral then I will have 69 territories to start the game which is a good number. I might have to have a Korean territory start as neutral to prevent a player from dropping the Korea bonus, which would bring the number of territories down to 68, another good number.

Ok, I feel like Tibet ought to be a little more defensible... as it is now Korea and Manchuria are the only quick bonuses... it's going to make most games lean towards that one side of the map. You need a sort of South Africa to your two australias over there.

As for the capitals, I could go either way... I'd lean towards keeping the same gameplay FA had though for simplicities sake.

Anyway, get a legend on there and maybe show a quick small version for me to check and we'll get this moving on.

Okay so here is the new and improved update you all have been waiting for! Version 1e! Both large and small maps are here.

Changes made:
- Added legend with bonus values
- Added three one ways between Shanxi-Ningxi; Fujian-Taiwan; Nanning-Guagxi; and Guizhou-Kunming
- Added an impassable forest between Kunming and Sichuan Prefacture
- Added mountains between Shigastse-Nagqu Prefacture; and Gansu-Sichuan Prefacture
- Removed Hebei in Han so it won't be confused with Hubei in Chu as well as it was too small to fit in the army number
- Removed Shannan in India and merged it with Nyingchi
- Removed part of the river between Chonqing-Sichuan Prefacture as it was just unnecessary
- Extended the river between Guizhou-Sichuan Prefacture
- 12 territories are now coded as starting neutral which gives us a total of 58 territories to start with which is a good number

Large Map

Small Map

To do:
- Rework the legend some more
