You can split it in 2: north sector west allies = britain, belgium, north parts of france geared against taking part in war effort against german front.
south sector west allies : south france (Marseille), Italy geared for taking part in the war effort against Austria and Ottomans.
Really this makes it gamewise much more sensible.

keep balkans as one bonuszone..that's ok.


I don't understand game idea of taking the central capitols only... won't the war be over if Germany seizes London, Paris; Brussels, Rome,Moskou ?

I don't like the idea of taking any "x" number of territories within a large space yields extra bonus ..like beforesaid You have the ottoman empire you get two bonusses combined ..

Like i say these is map one day before Start of War ;) . Creating two Western Allied Sector,will be no good idea. I realy Belive that Western Allied must be in one country.
I think that War is over when you take Central Powers Capitals,these is more logical.
Do you sugest that i have two Gameplay Objectives? Its these Possible?
"Capture Entente Powers Capitals-London,Paris,Rome,Saint Petersburg"
I dont know its these possible,i think that for now nobody have multiple Gameplayer Objective. But maybe will be very interesting Gameplay. Its will be good that someon who understand XML give hes opinion abouth multiple gameplay Objectives.

Well i can rise these to 15 for Allied and to 10 for Central powers,+ one starting position.

Operation Drug War has multiple objectives, so yes, they're possible. And I'd prefer to see both objectives, not just one.

Yes I was about to say that Drug Wars has 4 (I guess 4, right? ) objectives. And its better, if this is a war, Central Powers can win as well :) (I'm Turkish you know :P )

I really don't like the color of the nonplayble territories, I suggest some shade of gray. And you might also want to erase the border between Sweden and Norway.

Fix the spelling in the legend:
Nonplayble territory
Balkan States
Territory, not terittory

Maybe change London to England, unless London has some sort of capital bonus or something?

This thing about collecting a series of important capitols ..originally you may have thought this to be : you are an entente player and get to occupy these central power capitols and voila the war is over and you deserve a bonus.
That may have been the case in the real world, but on this map, it means as a player you control all central power capitols ..now go for world domination :arrow: :mrgreen: and attack all other territories.
So the bonus significance should be something of the sort "coherent HQ control" or "unified HQ control".
All HQ's of the Entente armies and that of the Central Powers means more effective troops and attack/defense control...that 's what deserves you the bonus :P

As for the update, i love it, but could you turn down the ocpacity of the picture in the sea?
It would be nice with a little more, i wont say texture, but alternating colours for waves, but subtly.

Aim want to say,that if you hold Central Powers Capital,then game is over and you are winner.Also if you hold all Entente powers capitals you also a winner,no need for any kind of bonuses.

Hi qwert, this is my first real look at this map, and overall I like where you've taken it visually.

For ease of play it would be good to make the Central and Entente powers shields distinct from each other in some way - a symbol or similar color border so that I can easily recognize from the map alone which four shields I need to hold together.

You have a lot of information in the legend - it takes up a LOT of your map - and yet it still is not clear from my first read what you mean with the Entente Powers legend. For instance, why mention the British Empire, if you aren't going to represent it on the map? It's neither a region nor a territory. And how am I supposed to hold thirteen Entente powers for a +3 bonus when you only tell us what ten of those powers are? Do I need to break out an atlas to figure out what is what, and then look up Ireland in wikipedia to see if it was considered part of the British Empire in 1914? Playing this map will require constantly referring to the legend and other sources.

In adding seas to the map, you have created four dead ends which don't do anything for gameplay. Was Berlin/northern germany the only seaport that exerted any control over the Baltic in 1914? How about Russian dreadnoughts out of St. Petersburg, which, by the way, was renamed Petrograd when the first world war broke out. The Black Sea is nice as it adds connectivity to that side of the map and rids the map of a bottleneck at Erzurum, but since the others seas don't go anywhere or connect anything, I would say get rid of them entirely.

Greece and Cyprus is another dead end... I maybe connect Cyprus to the near east somehow? Or connect Greece to the Med?
