Sounds like a plan to me - something along the lines of the Canada / Great Lakes perspective style?

That could look impressive.

Tilted perspective could work... although what would really be nice would be some more space...

Don't you have a little space to move things to the right a bit?

I think if you are going to split Indonesia into different territories, you might as well do the same for other large Asian countries like Russia, China, and India. This would be a change to how China operates as a single territory in World 2.1 It acts like a gateway to more than 10 other regions and anyone holding it would suddenly have a lot more dominance over the board.
Also, you could add some sea routes between the Arabian peninsula and Iran, as they are only separated by a narrow body of water.

So... You gonna pick this up again, MrBenn, or is this gonna get binned? It'd be awful sad if it were the latter.

Names is a tough one, hmmm, Enhanced Asia? Great Asia? Asia of the East? Asia: The Far East, Asia

Just throwing out ideas, Asia: The Far East seems best to me.


We are still keep the original Asia map, correct?

MrBenn wrote:Map Name
???? - This might be my biggest stumbling block of all! To my knowledge, there's no natural metropolitan name equivalent to "Europa." And "Asia 2" is out because it signifies a revamp. "New Asia" also makes zero sense. I'm racking by brain but hoping that someone in the foundry will have the creative spark.


The map that is currently named "Asia" externally is NOT named "Asia" internally. So why not name THIS map Asia and name THAT map "Far East" (it's internal name)?

That way, everything is named consistently (what a concept). And for those of you who are thinking "But this will confuse people who know that as the Asia map"...it's confusing NOW. I was trying to find that map, knowing it only by it's internal name...and obviously, couldn't find it!

If each state will be represented by only one territorry, then "Asian States" (as opposed to Asian nations which is an entirely different thing) would seem to be most approrpiate and would not require renaming any other map, whilst keeping Asian maps together.

But that other map NEEDS to be renamed ANYWAY, so "not requiring renaming any other map" shouldn't be a significant consideration.

Lack would prefer not to rename the other map I think. :)

My understanding of the situation is that you can't rename the map with out the creators consent. They asked him earlier (prompted by this thread, check page 3 or 4) but he declined. I agree it's stupid, it doesn't make sense, and he's being a snot wad. The map should be called "Far East" it's OBVIOUS. It even says it on the map. Why it was ever called "Asia" in the first place is a mystery, but unless you can convince the original map maker to change it there's no point in discussing it.

I'd rather see some new updates than an ongoing name dispute.

Lack needs to pull his head out of his ass and figure out that confusion on his site is not a good thing, then.

I'd give it a shot, but the mapmaker's name isn't even listed on the map, as far as I can tell. All I can see is "demonart", and there is no user by that name.

I think the Asia map name discussion should be redirected to the foundry discussions and keep this thread for discussing the new Asia map.

For the record, I believe demonart is someone who was "hired" by lack to create some new maps for the site before the foundry existed, and wants to remain in cognito.

Yeah, I know...it's already being completely ignored there. <sigh>
