Hi all, got another map for you. 13 American colonies is stuck in some sort of limbo in the Main Foundry but there's little work left to be done on it. Wars for Italian and German unification have some work to be done, but at this point its the little tidbits. It advanced a lot quicker than I thought it would, so I messed around with a new map: South Africa 1885.
The map is based on some old British map I found on Wikipedia. I'd been thinking about a South Africa map or perhaps a Zululand map for a while. Africa is way underepresented on CC and needs some maps to focus on its areas. South Africa in 1885 had many different states and nations and this map reflects this. These states and nations also warred heavily throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries, which this map also reflects. I hope you enjoy it and look forward to playing on it in the near future!
