I'll show my age here: I almost snorted my drink out my nose at this map. The Turtle feels like an old friend who finally got an effin' sense of humor. Love the concept.

i like the map. I know you have the stars, but the "USA only" bonus is still confusing because Alaska is part of the US. Might want to specify "lower 48 states" or "continental US" or .. i dunno. just a suggestion.

This was discussed recently, and the general consensus was that: 1) it's fine because Alaska wasn't a state in the 1950s, the era of this map, and 2) it is my hope that it will be obvious by the stars what is going on.

The other day somebody suggested that the old American style stars were better than the asterisk-stars... I'm kind of in that camp as well, epecially since I'm already using a standard five-pointed star on the top of the map, where it says "conquer." I may try to update the standard stars and post another version for discussion.

I agree. The asterisk's look like snowflakes at first glance. Stars would be better IMHO.

Here it is with proper stars. They're a bit smaller than before, and I've angled them so the "top" of the star could be north, rather than the top of the image. Nothing else is new to this version.

Not sure what kind of comment this is. Is the plane flying over the U.S. a B-52?

Yes... it seemed the most cold war-esque. The Russian plane is a Tu-16, also a bomber from the late 50s.

i know it was already discussed and added because of that discussion but i would love to see the north pole gone from this map it looks like a part that oaktown forgot to colour in

i prefer stars to snow flakes
Don't now why people on here don't like being cooks, remember under siege: A former SEAL, now cook, is the only person who can stop a gang of terrorists when they sieze control of a US Navy battleship.
