i think a couple of others may have said this, but anatolia could be made smaller, its much too big a continent to try to hold especially with all the smaller ones

and the two greens you're using are too similar in my opinion

I'm in the process of working on that now Qwert.
And of course it's going to be different...we're too different cartographers, but that's why i chose Asian minor and Africa for my WWI maps, so you could have Europe. :)

Yes, indeed. and particularly if we go into some of the localised battles.

Version 2.

1. I've adjusted the spacing issue...Turkey should look less cramped now.
2. Anatolia (Turkey) has been divided into East and West to break them down bonus wise.
3. Also changed the font on the title

i like it

the east anatolia color could be changed a little more, its still pretty similar to the other bonus...

the title looks good

legend could use some reworking, the names of the continents look too light on that very shiny silverish background... maybe a darker border around those letters or just darken the letters overall.

i am still not a fan of the background color, but ultimately i could live with it

the playable area is a bit tight, and i think you could shave off like 4 or 5 pixels off of the left side of the map, push british egypt's name and circle a little right, then stretch out the right some more to give it more room. if you don't understand, just say and maybe i can explain it a little better

all that will change, but one step at a time eh?! ;)

I am not going to distort the map any further. I will adjust the rim of the legend, but those terts for egypt etc are where they are supposed to be. it's simply a case of africa being much larger than the middle east and because of the size of the terts, they are going to look more spacious obviously.
i really can't see where you're coming from saying that the playing area is a bot tight. this is the small map.

yeah, i know what you're saying about africa looking much bigger... its just so top heavy with all the stuff in middle east that i want the map to come in at a different angle... kinda like that picture that someone put up for the brazil competition, showing europe from the ussr remember? that might make the dense area of middle east a little less cramped?

I definitely like the idea. I was always surprised at how little interest there was on this site for the middle eastern empires. And the WWI theme is also a great addition to our map roster.

I agree that the map seems a little cramped, but there is little you can do, especially since this is the small version. Also, in the territory Kutais, i can't tell if the that little block of land below it is attached or seperate to the territory. It has a line, but it isn't as dark as the others. Is it just a mistake?

1. 42 territories now split into several more continents, with better gameplay options.
2. Obvious colour changes to those territories
3. Obvious design changes in the shape of the dome.
