Casablanca should also be included for sure.
Instead of Athens, Istanbul. And where's Moscow?
All of Asia is too empty really. Perhaps include Seoul and/or Pyongyang?
Instead of Quezon City, perhaps the only city on the map I'd never heard of, maybe include Jakarta?
I love the idea, sorry to throw so many cities out there. Of all these suggestions, I feel most strongly about replacing Denver with Las Vegas. Las Vegas is distinct, Denver is just another midwestern city.
Las Vegas is a good idea, and close enough to Denver that it should work. I wouldn't say Denver is just another city, but I agree Las Vegas is more major.
Moscow will be coming to Europe as I shift the Eurasia border over, I guess at the elimination of Rome which is currently too crowded.
Seoul was on my list but the area is too tight already. I'm thinking of sticking with Russian territories since that is the empty part.
Jakarta is also too close to Singapore, which is why I wanted a territory from the Philippines but it can be switched to Manila.
I have not spoken with Andy about this map. I understand the concern about copyright issues, but this map is very different than the Classic map was. All original artwork is the most noticeable chance, but also all places for armies are cities and not countries which makes it inherently unique IMO. The layout by its very nature will become original because it is based on existing cities. If I am asked to stop development I will understand, though I think it will be a shame! (Also, I would not say that "great care" was taken with Classic Shapes or Classic Art. Those maps were hack jobs and the fact that they remain on the site in their current state is an atrocity
