Whenever someone gained permission from the cartographer who made the map or whenever I time comes where I feel europe is ready to be revamped.

not very well done because the only way germany could ever be tht big is if it was during ww1 and then spain was neutral ...replace the name norway with scandinavia and make spain just spian and portugul and rname it iberia and make the african part afrcia..u need to name italy and conect norwway to uk...also i would change the colours and relating to my first part about germany ..rename it to some thing like central europe and romania it balkans maybe....would never play it how it is because it is totally unrealistic for all times and the names are alll off

Does someone have access to the original to make changes? The army numbers for Iraq need to be moved to fit on the smaller map. Only 2 digits are visible.

Hath wrote:Ok...has anyone else run into this issue?

If you're quick to the draw have a look before some more turns are taken:

Game 2995785

Have a look at Iraq. The number hangs off the screen so it *looks* like a 1, so i plopped my 3 guys down and then Bob (thankfully) told me it was an 11 I was attacking. Fantastic. Not sure if it matters but I do have the color aide on. This needs to be fixed.


I suppose you could hack together a solution just by editing the xml to move the territory over a bit, but it won't look as nice as if the mapmaker could change it.

Could easily be done in the XML - but the army circle won't be moved unless we have the original somewhere.

Even though I'm a newbie (but already loving conquer club), I'll join in the calls to modify some of the territory names (obviously, only the ones that were initialy mistaken).

Some of the mistakes listed are quite basic and jasnostj list is complete and correct:

Germany = Central Europe
Slovakia = Czechoslovakia
The West = Western Europe
Belgium = Benelux
Mediterranea = Southern Europe
Croatia = Yugoslavia
Sardinia = Corsica & Sardinia
Scandinavia = Northern Europe
Estonia = Latvia & Estonia (or Baltics, if 2 words don't fit on the map, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baltics#Et ... f_the_term)
Saint Petersburg = Karelia
Africa = Northern Africa
The Near East = Middle East
Arabia = Saudi (Arabia)
Israel = (Southern) Levant (includes Jordan, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_Levant)
Eastern Turkey = Eastern Anatolia (includes Georgia and Armenia)
Western Russia = European Russia
Moscow = Western Russia
Northwestern Russia = Komi
Western Russia = Caucasus

Europe map -major- ambiguity

Postby e_i_pi on Tue Jan 27, 2009 7:43 am

Italy borders Albania, which is fine if you could see the sea route, but it's covered up by the name 'Albania'. i think this is a massive oversight. In fact, I have only noticed it after almost 20 games on this map. Might be an idea if the Foundry crew contacted the mapmaker and got it fixed.

i dug through half of the thread, not sure if it was addressed, but whatever - the map is at it is and is played, so i will react, even if that was already pointed out

not very insulting, it's really a bad thing to call Poland, Belarus, Ukraine and Lithuania a "Germany"

Germany roots come from Italy+France+Germany, and what this maps looks like, is the concept of "Lebens Raum", the idea that it's easy to slaughter and enslave Sklavians - notice, the roots of word slave comes from former name of sklavians, the most spread slaves in Roman Empire.

I am polish, and i am very disappointed with this. Actually, with the exception of germany being in, and baltics being out, this really looks like Polish & Lithuanian Commonwealth from around XVII century. Also east germany is built atop extinct sklavian nation...

Politically, nowadays Germany is far from Poland and Former Soviet Republics. Just notice how societies judge the recent gas conflict. All former soviet republics are a bit more supporting Ukraine, while Germany (foolishly, imho) supports more Russia. And i speak of citiziens, not government.

Also, Germans have ugly names. :P Like Udo and Georg (pronounciatiuon matters here) :P

So... Poland should not be one continet with Germany!

Europe was made in the beginnings of the site for gameplay reasons. You should play MrBenn's Europa map — that has all Europe's countries labeled and positioned in their correct places.

hi. could you please lighten the background color for the player troop positions? right now, it is almost impossible to read the troop numbers for dark blue. a background color of light gray might be much better, or white. thanks.

Without checking the posts on page 1-11, I'd like to tell you that next time you update the map you should update Denmark aswell (since Sjælland/Zealand (an island) for some reason is a part of Sweden...).
It annoyes me a bit, since I live here, our capital is on the island and... It's just Denmark, and not Sweden. ;)

I noticed that a bit earlier, but I doubt they will change it, since it does not affect the gameplay or anything major.

The geography of this map is notoriously inaccurate - hence the Europa map ;-)

Numerous complaints (many minor) have been brought up ranging from color selection to border issues. I would like to request these either be fixed or I be given the chance to fix them. Please let me know.

Also, the graphics aren't that bad either.
