But if you look at the bonuses, they are pretty OK as they are. A +4 for South Africa and a +2 for Indian ocean. Reducing those bonuses undervalues them. The only problem arises when one player gains a momentum in the south.

I disagree. Southern Africa is overvalued at +4 and is still very much desirable as a +3. I mean, look at Middle Africa & Angola. There is no way that is equivalent to Southern Africa.

Compared to Middle Africa, they are pretty similar, for a map this size. Raising one or lowering the other would make them unbalanced. Compare it to Maghreb though. That one has one more territ, but one less border, and in the top corner, also has a good way to expand. Niger + Volta, same amount of territs, same border and same bonus.

None of the +4 bonuses are equal, but with all things taken into account, all are worth around the +4 mark.

Horn of Africa +2, 3 territs, 2 borders, Indian Ocean +2, 4 territs, 2 borders. Going on your logic, one of these bonuses is wrong.

I really like this map a lot but there appears to be a glitch in that you cannot attack from Baso Fastino. It doesn't even show up on the list of potential attack points. I hope I'm not duplicating what someone else already pointed out, but that's been my only complaint with this map. I like the texture of the land, the graphics are amazing and I find the distributions to be good. Thanks for hearing me out.
