It's looking really good, though, I REALLY don't like Xinjiang being a part of the Russian bonus. I really think it deserves to be it's own bonus. It's a really unique and interesting part of the world with a long history of changing hands, but as far as I know it's never been a part of Russia. It doesn't make much sense to me and I think it would be more interesting as an independent region.

Also I think India's too big.

Thank you! Hope you are having a good New Years Eve!

In response to Xinjiang as a separate bonus, yes I can do it, though it would have to be in response to the majority. I'm not saying no, just right now it's "let's wait and see what others feel and think" mode. That's the beauty of a futuristic map, it doesn't have to be accurate. Though in the past, China and Russia did have their little beefs with each other on their borders, and that is why I had Russia take over a few territories.

Still trying to get ahold of Tacktix to grab his thoughts on this one... so sorry for the delay.

I'd still like to see a few territories merged on Russia and India... but that's really up to your discretion.

For Tibet... couldn't you make the Himalayas more Impassable? What about surrounding Tibet and reducing the bonus to maybe 1 or 2, giving it very limited access. I mean, these are the biggest mountains in the world and it must be very difficult to move an army through them.

Not a problem on the delay, holidays and all.

As for Russia, I think that it is comparable to Canada on FA for size and bonus value, so for now I'll leave it. If I do anything I might do what Bison King suggested, so I'll just wait and see what others think first.

India, yea I can merge a few more territories then if I do your suggestion on Tibet then I can reduce the bonus for India at the same time. I might have to include Myanmar in the Indo-China bonus to open up that part of the map. I could also have Myanmar as a killer neutral say at 3 to give a way for players to pass from Indo-China and India. Just a couple of thoughts.

That might be cool for Burma I think. Also, with Tibet being more blockaded, I think this would help to recreate the border with China and India better. Yeah, they border each other... but they're very difficult to get between the two.

Okay just so I understand what you are saying, it would be cool to have Burma put in with the Indo-China bonus right?

I could go either way, putting it in as Indochina or making it a killer neutral.

Good, I think I will use Myanmar as a killer neutral of 2 then.

I'll be posting a new update with the changes you recommended here in a couple of days.

Look at redrawing terts and physically connecting Primorsky to N Korea and you need another smallish bonus or two. You could split India or the Russian. More fractured.

Looks like a pretty good map inspired by the Fractured America map.
I just wanna remind that the proper spelling of one of your territories is "Ningxia", not "Ningxi"
