i realize youre using a mercator projection which enhances the size of antarctica, but having a global warming map with a gigantic ice sheet at the bottom bothers me...

this image shows antarctica if the ice was removed. not taking into account sea level rise if the ice did melt...so sea level should be even higher than shown on this map!

either way id shrink down antarctica...and even if its not an accurate 'projection' id shrink it so antarctica is only in the center portion of the map, and maybe some islands that are connected instead of a large mass.

uninhabitable isnt a word.

Habitable = People can live there
Inhabitable = People cannot live there

i think inhabitable is the word you are looking for

Um, no, uninhabitable is most definitely a word... I think you need to check a dictionary. Habitable and inhabitable mean the same thing...

This map is very nice and i voted for it to continue by the way...

However i think you need to add something different to it...Different kind of gameplay or sumthing...

I thought of a little idea....

Whoever has the a country in the red zone loses one army every turn but if they have a country in the antartica they lose nothing...

Now it could be important to have a country in the red zone to break up continents of the other players¬!!

I think someone may have said this before, but you should make it so all the ports can attackone another and there's a decent sized bonus for holding them all.

No further news on this yet? I noticed it was beginning to slip through the pages (only page 2 to be fair) so decided to give it a small bump.

i made some changes, mostly revamping antarctica, however, i also changed the bonuses
i also added a kind of underwater effect, to show how the continents sunk, and i toned down the uninhabitable zone
besides that, i just made a few minor changes to some text and stuff
p.s. : i know the legend is too small, and i'll fix it

It's starting to look really good but it still needs work I'm afraid. For example, I disagree with the 7 armies for Africa. Yes it may be split but it has only 3 borders. Antartica could be worth an extra army - almost every territory is a border. Also, some of the names aren't too clear and are the circles big enough? Despite this the map is looking good and has a lot of potential. :wink: :) :D

that's explained here

first of all, its not a post-apocalyptic world. this amount of global warming would take place over hundreds of years, so its not like there are gonna be giant tidal waves that flood the coasts. and dont you think humans would EVENTUALLY see the threat and adapt a little? people could build off previously flooded islands so they wouldnt have to make the ports floating or start building off the ocean floor. and these ports wouldnt be huge cities or anything. they would be international ports for ships and aircraft. so, for my map, i took current, centralized islands and turned them into ports. and finally, in response to the comment about moscow being gone, cities like that could be saved, i just didnt see the point in putting a bunch of little major cities off the coast of every continent

and about playability. without the ports, it would just look even more like the classic map. thats actually the reason i put the ports and the uninhabitable zone in, so it would be different from classic
