New Map Update!
Image

Changes:
-The non-playable areas are greyed out
-Map/Curvature lines have been added (this explains the funny UK/Spain angles)
-Meditteranean islands added
-Territory names moved, and some boundaries moved (particularly in Balkans)
-Some territory names abbreviated, and a key of these added
-Colours changed to show possible continent/sub-continent bonuses

Nice update, but a few things that need fixing up.

- Looking at your legend, you have the wrong colours for the Continents (E.g. British Isles is pink, Balkans is red as is Western Europe.)

- The border with Finland and European Russia is very thing, especially down the bottom. Maybe make it the same thickness as everything else?

Looking good anyway.

I preferred the colours in my first version - I think they look a bit muted/bland now... Does anybody have suggestions for a colour scheme that will 'fizz', and allow the diffreentation of the required number of areas??

Oh, and before anybody mentions it, I know that the legend needs redoing! :)

The sea routes are on my to-do list... I'll have to put some new ones in for the Meditteranean Islands too...

Don't like the way you did the continents in the south, you should have West Med. for all the Islands west of Italy should be a continent by itself.

East Med. should be Turkey Greece, Crete and Cyprus.

You'll be shot before you put Holland with Germany I suggest that you use The low Countries for BeNeLuxMake it there own.

You should now put Italy with all the countries inside part of The Continent Germany is in (I don't know what it is because you haven't redone the legend).

Russia should be part of "Asian borders"

Denmark, Iceland, Romania, Moldova, Slve. and Ireland don't have the same shade as the rest of there continent.

That was my opinion I hope it Helps

Be careful about small territories and placing the army shadow over them...Andorra, VC, Liech, etc.

-Amended Legend Colours

I've updated the legend with continent colours. My idea for bonuses so far - (I'm open to other ideas too) - are:

Scandinavia (dark purple) to be a small bonus (+2), with another +2 for holding the other bits (light purple)

British Isles. UK (light yellow) something like +3. Possibly another +1 for Rep Ireland too.

Meditteranean. A bonus for the dark red areas, and another for hlding the islands too. I'm not convinced I've got the divisions right here yet, and like the suggestion for having East/West Med. This (and ocean routes) needs some more thought though...

Western Europe. I'm not sure what bonus / sub-continents make sense here, and am contemplating "moving" territories into Central Europe/Meditteranean continents with a possible East/West Med rethink...

Central Europe. At the moment I don't like this colour. I do like the Benelux sub-continet idea, and will try and remember to incorporate that into a future draft.

Eastern Europe and Baltics. Two sepearte continents, with the possibility of having a bigger bonus for holding both.

Asian Borders. The pale areas (+2)are bona fide European Countries, while Turkey and Russia are (currently) not. I want to keep these together, and don't want to put Turkey in the Med.

Balkans According to one site I researched, the 7 dark blue are proper 'Balkan' countries, and Romania, Moldova and Slovenia are sometimes included in this group. I want to keep the countries here as close as possible to real-life, and have taken a bit of creative license to the boundaries to get the names to fit, and am pleased with the end result. I'm thinking of a 'Classic' Asia-equivalent bonus for this continent

In addition to the standard continent bonuses, I have been toying with the idea of disputed area bonuses, which would attract a +1 autodeploy to a 'partner'... ie:
N Ireland+England = +1 on England; N Ireland +Rep Ireland = +1 on Rep Ireland
Cyprus + Greece = +1 on Greece; Cyprus+Turkey=+1 on Turkey
If I do go down this route, then the grey area between Lithuania/Poland (which is technically part of Russia) would become Kaliningrad, which could be disputed by Germany/Russia)

I'm aware this is now a really long post, and need to catch up on some rest, so will finish here!

Keep the suggestions coming! :)

I've posted what I think about the continents, and I don't think you have room in the legend for 2 for the british Isles +1 for The Irish republic for each and every one.

I added in the Meditteranean islands, which somebody suggested would improve gameplay/movement in the South. Since doing this, I am also not happy with the Meditteranean continents.

I will make the Low Countries/Benelux a sub-continent of Central Europe in a future draft.

Moving Italy (and San Marino/Vatican City) into Central Europe makes this continet too large (10 Countries), and I want to keep Italy in the Med.

Russia and Turkey are currently 'extended' members of Asian Borders.

I like the suggestion for East/West Med, and have mentioned that in an earlier post. This seperation of the Med into East/West is the bit that I want to sort out next, but am not too sure how best to do it...

I'm currently thinking:

Thought A
West Med: Italy, San Marino, Vatican City, Sardinia, Sicily, Malta (6)
East Med: Greece, Crete, Cyprus (3)
With the Balearics/Corsica in the overall Meditteranean continent, but with a +1 bonus for Balearics+Spain and France+Corsica

Thought B
Med: Italy, San Marino, Vatican City, Greece, Crete, Cyprus (6)
Med Islands: Balearics, Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily, Malta (5)

Any help/other ideas are always appreciated!

I think this map is way to small for overlaping continents, and with the low lands as it's own continent Italy (and the countries within) without any Islands could go into Central Europe and it would only be 7, and the dark blue has seven so it's not to big.

And another Idea split russia in 2 to go with the 2 small continentsit borders, (just throwing out everything here)

And corsica should be able to attack Monaco just to make that con. hard to hold.

Balearic Ilse. should not be part of the spanish continent but should be part of west med.
