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.

I love this map. If you are going to change it, don't change the gameplay!
Also, the graphics aren't that bad either.

Also, I doubt this will actually be allowed to change, but I guess there is no harm in trying.

I know there is another better map of Europe but this one is still in use and geographical part of it is really bad.

The west part of Europe is called 'The West' so why the east is 'Germany'? :o

It's really bad not only from geograhical point of view but also when you look at historical point...calling Poland (and other eastern countries) a 'Germany' can be quite offensive for some people.

Not even mentioning the fact that there is Slovakia only and Czech Republic is missing. I think even Czechoslovakia would be better if it has to be one country for game play purpose (then you can imagine that this is an old historical map before Czechoslovakia was divided )

Hmm I come from Poland and I am just shocked, that the whole central Europe is called "Germany". WTF, it's not 1943 ^^ It should be called "central Europe" or something, to be 'neutral'.

Perhaps the 'Europa' map is more your style preference!
