Done! I think I had been misreading the height and weight restrictions previously

2.Is there a way to make it more clear that Athens belongs to Europe only (unless you want it to a transcontinental territory)?
I switched Brasilia to Buenos Aires but I don't want to add cities to SA or Africa. I think a map of this size will play much better with some "easy" to grab bonus regions, and 5 cities makes it to hard.
For the same reason, I don't want the Africa cities to border the Asia ones, because Africa is one of the low bonus regions. Tying it to three different continents makes it too hard to defend for 2 bonus troops. As you have probably noticed, I did switch the Africa connection to the more obvious location of Cairo.

You are correct that Sao Paulo is larger (in fact one of the 7 largest cities in the world!) Tokyo, NYC, Mexico City, and Mumbai are already included. Seoul is too close to South Korea in my opinion, even though its in the top 7. Jakarta is the 6th, so maybe it should replace Singapore after all? I think you've made a good enough case for Sao Paulo though simply on size.

Also add Stalingrad and Alaska's Capital.
The graphics seem pretty good so far so I wold focus on balancing the left and right side of the board from a GP perspective
Athens, Dubai and Cairo should all connect.
I would also change Singapore to connect with Nairobi instead of Cape Town
Great Idea and Great Map!
Cairns I'm still debating. I don't want to add another territory to Australia, so it would replace Perth if I decide to add it. Perth's position is much more favorable though (Melbourne, Sydney and Cairns are basically in a line). People know Cairns on CC simply because of the town's most famous poster. Perth is much larger and in a better location so I think it will stay.
Volgograd (Stalingrad) is too close to Moscow and Tehran. Tehran could be switched, but Moscow is the real problem.
I originally included Anchorage in my draft instead of Edmonton, but I think it connects awkwardly with the rest of NA. Also the USA already has the most cities on the map, so adding another to Canada seems reasonable to me. I suppose I could include both, but NA is already the largest continent, and 42 territories is much better than 43.
What do you feel is imbalanced about the current gameplay?

Correct. I don't have an exact plan, but the current straight lines exist because they are simpler to redraw than curves. I think in the end I will have curved connections like an airline map and no army shadows when the xml is complete.
