Gameplay - Regular:

Regular Eurasia has 131 regions, 25 bonus areas (of which 14 form 7 pairs that share a region) which also form 7 superbonuses.

Starting neutrals: Ireland & Hainan: 3, Egypt & South Nei Mongol: 2

Starting positions for 2 player games only:
Position 1 - Spain, Switzerland, Poland, Astana, Nepal, Henan;
Position 2 - France, Austria, Qaraghandy, Austria, Assam, Shandong.
The other regions in 2-player games start normally, but these sets of regions are guaranteed to be starting with 3 armies and are assigned to both players as wholes.

Region bonus is 1 for every 4 regions, with a minimum of 3 and maximum of 10. That means that after 40 regions, you don't get a higher region bonus.

2 player games start with 44 regions each, and 43 neutrals.
3 player games start with 42 regions each, and 5 neutrals.
4 player games start with 31 regions each, and 7 neutrals.
5 player games start with 25 regions each, and 6 neutrals.
6 player games start with 21 regions each, and 5 neutrals.
7 player games start with 18 regions each, and 5 neutrals.
8 player games start with 15 regions each, and 11 neutrals.


Gameplay - Mini:

The mini version has 27 regions, which form 7 bonus areas. Each region corresponds to a bonus area on the regular Eurasia map (except Central India and Philippines), and each bonus area corresponds to a superbonus on the regular Eurasia map.

No starting neutrals.

Starting positions for 2-3 player games:
Position 1 - West India, Indochina, European Russia, Central Siberia
Position 2 - Central India, Indonesia, East Europe, West Siberia
Position 3 - East India, Philippines, Southeast Europe, East Siberia

2 player games start with 10 regions each, and 7 neutrals.
3 player games start with 9 regions each, no neutrals.
4 player games start with 6 regions each, and 3 neutrals.
5 player games start with 5 regions each, and 2 neutrals.
6 player games start with 4 regions each, and 3 neutrals.
7 player games start with 3 regions each, and 6 neutrals.
8 player games start with 3 regions each, and 3 neutrals.

Mini maps are nice. If this one becomes smaller than an average map like classic is the question. Smaller names (SE Europe) would save size.

The small map will be less wide than small classic, but about the same / slightly higher height.

This map will be 500x464 at small, while small Classic is 630x420.

Anyway, after a suggestion from a certain somebodies, I merged Japan & Korea and added some sea routes.

Hmm... If you do pursue the Eurasia map to completion, I doubt that we need two Eurasia maps on the site. At a glance I'd say it isn't going to be unique enough to warrant continuation.

Right, not like we need two maps of europe, or four world maps, or seventy zillion USA maps...

There's been lots of talk of making smaller maps for people who play CC on mobile devices, and I figured that making miniature versions of larger maps would be a good way to achieve that. Besides, small maps are all the rage right now.

Anyway, this is just an idea, and I'll let the CA:s figure out whether this is something that should be pursued.

Personally, I think this is something that could be beneficial for CC in the future, when more and more people want to use CC on mobile devices.

Good point, let me run it by the others.

So, while we're waiting for the decision from CA:s...

I'd like to get some input from people who use phones/other mobile devices to play CC... Mainly, is 500 x 464 a small enough image to be convenient to play?

For comparison, Doodle earth is 600 x 450 as the small version. Classic is 630 x 420.

I'd probably play this "Lite Version" more than the big version. Ha.

Same here - by phone or by pc

;)

I'd probably play Eastern hemisphere instead of the bg version.

Whatever happened to the new, big Asia map?
