Kgd (Kalingrad) is necessary to have the Transcontinental bonus. In addition, you get a +1 for holding Kgd and Russia (motherland bonus).

Thanks Zeak.

It's also worth pointing out that San Marino (SMR) and Vatican City (VAT) can only attack/be attacked by Italy.

Additionally, it's worth looking out for the Med Islands bonus ;-)

What is the point of this map? We already have a Europe map that works/looks better.

The point was to get a map of Europe that didn't have parts of Africa in it and one that had sensible continents in terms of names and groupings compared to real life.

It's clearly different in terms of gameplay so another 'Europe' map is fine.

I need to ask if the above is correct about SMR and VAT only being able to be attacked from ITALY?

I would have thought that either FRANCE or SVN(Slovenia) would be able to attack SMR as these are adjoining territories!
And Isn't it true in real life that GERMANY in the WWII 'Threatened' ITALY to join them because as we know GERMANY had a HUGE Tank Army and EASY access to ITALY's North via what was then a part of Greece?

And also near the end once ITALY had taken heavy losses and threatened to bail out that Germany then moved TANKS to southern france under the pretext of building defences against the allies when it was actually a threat to ITALY that if they in 44' decided to pull out germany knew they would lose so vowed to take out ITALY. And tanks then couldn't go over mountains.

So perhaps its not as true a map if the north of italy cant be attacked from, or attack to, France or Germany/Greece(Now Known As Slovenkia).

Fix This and i will play the map for sure as its HEAPS better than the other Euro Maps.

Completely disagree on both points.

a) This map looks better.
b) This map plays better.
and
c) This map is of "Europe".

It's correct. The mapmaker himself wrote it. Don't doubt it.
Aussierager wrote:I would have thought that either FRANCE or SVN(Slovenia) would be able to attack SMR as these are adjoining territories!

Neither France, nor Slovenia are neighbours to San Marino. They are neighbours to Italy. But could they invade San Marino or Vatican in real life without going through Italy? No, they couldn't. So yes, only Italy can attack SMR and VAT, and vice versa.

And tanks then couldn't go over mountains.

Even if all that were true, would it matter? It's not a WWII map. In WWII, the baltic states weren't split up. Belarus didn't exist, aswell as alb, mne, bih and so on (EX-Yugoslavia... so there's no Yugoslavia. As there are no German tanks now, on this map).
Aussierager wrote:So perhaps its not as true a map if the north of italy cant be attacked from, or attack to, France or Germany/Greece(Now Known As Slovenkia).

The north of Italy CAN be attacked from France and vice versa. And oh, in real life, there are also mountains between Italy and Germany: the Alps. And 2 countries even lie between them: Switzerland and Austria. Maybe if you look closely, you might see those on the map. And Slovenkia (which is in fact Slovenia, a real life country too) does now not belong to neither Germany nor Greece. So you can't attack Italy from Germany. But hey, you CAN attack Italy from Greece. There's a route over the Mediterranean, which is ALSO on the map. And no, that's not the north of Italy, but if you really wanted to, you could always go through Slovenia. [/quote]

It already is a lot better and needs no fixing. If you don't play it because of your silly remarks, then don't. I won't mind.
