I just wanna remind that the proper spelling of one of your territories is "Ningxia", not "Ningxi"


he also spelled seoul wrong xD


Well the thing about "Fractured" names can be fractured too. Combined - reorganized - misspelled.

Central Korea could be Pyongyang and North Korea is Liaoning (Chinese Name) but it was part of Korea kingdom of Gogeryeo. Maybe name it Gogeryeo in a historical throwback?

Also... this is probably a bit much to ask, but, maybe throw the Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, Tibetian, Hindu, Vietnamese, ect characters above the English names. Maybe only on the large version? I figure, writing system is a major part of national identity and something like that could really push the whole fracturedness of the map because it shows the differences between these places. I mean, it's not a huge deal on FA because we all use the roman alphabet. But yeah, that would really be cool for this map considering none of the other Asian maps give two hoots about what these people really call their own territories.

Okay so here is the new update with a couple of changes. I added in Xinjiang thereby decreasing Russia. Changed a couple of the mis-spelled names, and added ... well take a look.

Good step forward. Aren't you gonna use the same arrows as the other fractured?

I like Taiwan being a 2 way. Being able to attack the mainland directly. It will make it more valuable/desirable and influential.

Looking good. Do the 3's symbolize neutral starts?

Is Myanmar/Nepal ect. going to count as a bonus? or are they neutral?

Yes as long as I can remember how I did them. Since I lost everything in our house fire back in Oct., those files are forever lost as well. Don't you think Taiwan is desirable now being an autodeploy of +2? Maybe I could have Taiwan one way attack the mainland so as not give whoever is going for Chu too many District Cities to help gain and defend Chu. As it stands Chu is neighbors with Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Chongqing, as well as striking distance to Beijing. If anyone gets Chu and these cities well watch out.

Now that I think about it, maybe I should but an impassable around a city to prevent that scenario?

Thank you. Yes the "3" indicate those territories that will be starting neutral. Now that I think of it I just remembered I need to include a capital for my new bonus which will also start as neutral. Unless I add in a couple more territories.

Myanmar is a killer neutral to give another access point to India. All the rest are "neutral countries".

Nice update, may I suggest that you lower the bonus for Xinjiang to maybe 4 troops? It just seems strange that the bonus given is more than the number of territories in the bonus.

I thought so too, but according to my Bonus Calculator it came out as 5.17. You have to use all 4 territories to defend it as it has 7 territories that can attack it, so that alone brings the value up a tad bit. I could close off another border, but I think that would create too much of a bottle neck around there. Something we don't want. Right now it is bottle necked, but you can still get around fairly easy while at the same time requires some strategy so you don't get yourself in a bind.

That's okay, that's why I have the colors of the bonuses under the bonus values. Maybe I should figure something out about that.

I was confused for a bit as well. Maybe it could be labeled like a region instead of the ambiguous name "cities" Something like "Confederation of Autonomous Cities"

I'll come up with something that will be short and to the point and that will fit in the legend.

Other than these couple of points for now, what do you think of the grunge feeling? Too much, not enough? Let me know!

I have the large and small here. The small I put the "888" so we all can see that they will fit in the smallest territories.
