Trench warfare 1917.
Germany VS. England/France/USA


Map Name: Trench warfare 1917
Mapmaker(s): Flapcake - XML by Koontz1973
Number of Territories: 92 Map size 840x840
Special Features: 44 Neutral starters.
What Makes This Map Worthy of Being Made: Trench war was relentless and the soldier lived an nightmare every single day in the trenches, my intentions with this map is not to cover the entire war front, but to make an close up on the trenches and turn it in to that dogfight it was, therefore this map is about staying alive and wipe out your enemy, get out on the ohter side, wounded and exhausted, but to feel the sweet victory of the bloodiest battle.

No-Mans land should have some shell holes to hang out in for protection against assaults by the opposing side from a the main offensive direction!

2 points Flapcake, I know your other map has slowed down a little but I hope you are keeping an eye on it.
USA entered the was in 1917 and tanks made there first major appearance in 1916, so a slight title change is needed. Agree with Andy, shell holes are a must.
Where are the trenches, cannot see any?

I remember looking up some images about trench warfare when the other map about trench warfare was in production. Maybe these could be of some assistance:

Also, because I am sucker for poetry, it me be worthwhile to read (and include a few lines) from some WWI poems by soldiers:

And dozens and dozens of other fine pieces of WWI poetry.

Change airforce for the British to Royal Flying Corps.
Change luftwaffe to Imperial German Army Air Service.
trenches are looking very nice but sharp corners?
Add the flag of Austria-Hungary Empire to the german flag as it looks lonely.
Are you adding the shell holes later? cannot see them yet, like the trenches last time.

Nice work.

Looks good but I have no idea what the No Man's Land bonus is about.

Change the US flag from the 50 star to the 48 star flag as Alaska and Hawaii were not added until 1959.

From the image:
1=-1. 2=+1 -1=0 3=+2 -1=+1 and so on...

It just is confusing to me.
