East, West...it is all a matter of perspective. ;)

I like this idea...we have numerous maps of the "World" and maps of smaller areas I.E. continents...so why not go in between and do Half World maps like this? I like it.

If you wanted to be real crazy...you could do Above and Below the Equator maps also! ;) But that may not work so well.

you mean antarctic ;) lol
antarctica has been suggested before - but the problems were in splitting it up into conts and labeling, and that there would be little impassables and the gameplay would be crap - i think anyway, i'll look it up
i think that we can almost never have enough world maps, as long as theyre not too similar to one another...i think this map will go far,

draft?

oops - yes, there would of course be a Europe bonus. Maybe even two separate bonuses for the Central Powers and the Entente (sp?) Powers.

I don't know if a WWI themed map for the Eastern Hemisphere is very good -- most of the fighting was focused in Europe. I think this should just be a geographical map.

I say keep it geographic, but use some older political boundaries than present day. I'm liking the look you've got right now, and if you want to age the boundaries to WWI era, more power to you, just don't make WWI proper the focus.

right... it doesn't haveto be WWI per se, but i like having the 1914 theme to push the graphics.

this doesn't grab me. i feel ripped off playing for half the world.

i can understand playing for a city, country, continent or the entire world.
i can understand playing a region that has been involved a war.

but right now this just seems to fall between those two.

Right... so don't mention WWI. Call it "The Old World in 1913" or something like that.

I know it's an early draft, but you've got some darn small countries on there. What'll happen with the small map?

Are you splitting up these areas more for bonuses? Almost every one has ten territories. Maybe it's not a bad thing. Just a different style for the map.


I think you've chosen the colours quite well btw.

Everything is up for discussion... I just like the overall footprint of the Eastern Hemisphere as a map. We could do big regions, more small regions, or sub-regions within continents like World 2.1. I'd like to hear what you all think works.

Going back a bit in time offers two things to the project:
1. a bit more flexibility in terms of how we draw borders. A contemporary map runs into all sorts of problems about what we call Israel, including Kosovo, etc.
2. visual direction.

As for exactly how far back we go, that is also up for discussion. The 1910s present a particularly violent period for the Eastern Hemisphere, with fighting in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, India, the Pacific Islands, and Colonial regions of China. New Zealand and Australia were involved in the great war, ancient empires in Asia and Europe collapsed, new nations were forged, revolutions were begun.
