What if you put a line or dash from the name to the place?

Yes, thanks for that offering Gozar. I am currently investigating some options right now just when you wrote that.

I am even considering an entire re-working of colours and fonts to enable place names to stand out more.

I really like it, but i just find it REALLY hard to follow. lots of lines everywhere. my first time playing this map, I would probably use up the hour for my turn, just trying to get strait different borders etc.

with that said, i really like it. i love maps that are somewhat complicated. i think the majority of my confusion w/ the names not being on the territories, but in the "water". probably will just take some getting used to.

Yes Gemineye...i tool find it a bit confusing :? and that will be a challange with the armies in the water, but unfortunately this 1942 campaign was not simple and like most wars there were various fronts. I think however, that those name to territory lines may have to go. Its just too much.

Addition of extra component - airfields can attack each other.

What does everyone think? Good idea. I think it is for this map - adds that extra element.

i like the airfields, but they are a little to "crisp" for the rest of the map. maybe dull them or blur them. just my opinion.

Thanks Sam_levi_11....complicated yes...and perhaps this is one continent that would be really hard to hold because it is split up....perhaps needs a higher bonus package....glad to hear however that you'd still play it.

Upon reflection, now that you have pointed this out, I have just come up with a solution that will join the entire japanese navy red together to make it easier to play this as one continent. Posting somehting shortly.

What is off the east coast of nullhunnby? Is that just an island?

Map is looking nice! The black background give the map a very dark, ominous, "war" feel. A much different feel from the Cairns map, which is much more light and "summery" as someone said.

Keep up the nice work!

Cheers,
