First Glance Post:

Good idea, will probably need some impassability. However, I can't read the terit names without straining my eyes.

Can I ask, what's the deal with the year maps? Not criticism, just wondering…

What's so special about Poland in 1922?

The Territories are based on Poland in 1922 - 1939 (before the war) and so i just put 1922, the regions have probably changed since then?

It's just that it's kind of a weak theme... actually, it's not really much of a theme at all. A Poland map isn't a bad idea, but there's much more you could do with it than just giving us a snapshot of the legislative districts. For instance, there's always the medieval kingdom of Poland-Lithuania

If i was to do that, it would no longer be a map of Poland, i would like to stick to just Poland, although i agree that there could be a better theme, any other ideas?

I like the idea of a poland map.

A couple of things I've noticed though.

1) I don't like the font though, I can't quite make out the names. Can you sharpen it a little or change the font?

2) It's very hard to see the difference in colur between Lublin and Lodz, can you change the colours on these?

Prem.

EDIT: I don't think it has to have a theme, there are plenty of country maps that are just just country maps and don't have themes at all. Keep this one going!

This map has a lot more promise than the Med Basin one.

If you're going for a '1922' theme, then you should try and capture a feel of that era. Poland has had several boundary changes as a result of the World Wars, and the current area known as poland is substantially different from the area you have depicted... If you want to stick to a straight-up geographical map, why not use contemporary geography? I'd much rather you got a completely solid idea of what you wanted to achieve, and then work towards that goal ;-)

i don't know. It's a fine basic map. But I'm starting to think the CC is saturated already with this type of map. There seems to be a lot of discussion about themes nowadays. Maybe we should move in that direction?

I think that this map will need impassables, more clear font, and a bigger different between the bonus colors

Samuel...you have a brilliant opportunity to turn this map of Poland into a WWII theme with the invasion of Poland from Germany....that could be a very good theme, but you'd need to do some good research to determine how the gameplay would work.
I am sure you'd have good backing from the foundry regulars if you moved into this theme.
you could have Warsaw being bombed from German Luftwaffe....and the troops moving in across a couple of places on the border to replicate some impassables.

Is this map still being worked on? I thinkl it is good and has potential but it needs a few things.
    Impassibles
    more of a 1920's look
    something that makes it look less dull
