Hm, the game play of this map is interesting, especially the lay out of the continents. We have the resident "Waste Land Continents" (Europe and Russian Empire) at the top of the map, with the more friendly and smaller areas located towards the middle and bottom. Of course though Europe will get play, due to the connection strategic advantage it holds in regards to the Trading Companies and Colonies.
All your bonus values seem spot on...as I figured.
Australia and then into S.E. Asia look like great starting positions if you happen to have some control in Europe. But if you don't, China and Japan along with the Middle East seem to be the best bets...
Hm, it looks like the game play is well thought out. I can see various scenarios working, depending on your initial placement.
Few minor things:
Does Italy have a route to Austria-Hungary? Maybe nudge the mountains up or down, depending on if the answer is yes or no.
Are we supposed to see territory division lines beneath the tree roots? I mean, mountains? I.E. Stavropol-Perm-Siberia and Amur, etc.
Maybe alter South Africa's color a little bit, just so the text of "S. Africa" isn't so light in the ocean.
You are going to do something still with the flags, yes? They feel...hm...too shiny and new compared to the other style of graphics on the map. Maybe more dull colors...or something to to keep in style with the...erm...style.
Lastly, are we playing hide and go seek with your signature? Or maybe it just takes time to move it to its final resting place in the upper right.
Keep up the work!
