I didn't see any mention of Italy maps by using the search. Most likely because the map is long & skinny - not the best layout for a CC map (but then either was the Philippines). Before I go further, would like some feedback on first draft. Italy really has 20 regions, each subdivided with like 4 or 5 provinces. So I had to combine some. Map has been created so far using photoshop layers so changes to borders / colors etc. will not be difficult. Also some good textures & images will be used to spice it up before it's complete. Thanks ![/color]

Actually, I made one a while back, and i'll post some versions here to. Mateo someone or other also made one, called Conquest Italia.

Ahh.. I figured there was something out there. Almost every idea I've thought of has already been mentioned here. I'll still wait for some feedback & see if I should continue, or if Matt is still working? - I guess you're not since you closed it. Thanks for the images.

Vento needs an extra territory as does sardinia. Leave Tuscany as it is though, will make the map interesting.

Is the territory with rome in it missing from the bonuses list?

Hmm.. appears that I totally left it out. 8 Territories with only 7 Bonus. Ha ! Should I combine 2 areas or add the 8th Bonus terriroty (with Rome)? I'm thinking I should combine & re-divide the lands, as 8 would be too many for a map this size. [/quote]

If you wish, I could give you many feedbacks about Italy map...
so ask me, please, for any kind of doubt you have about it.
There could be many ways to make an italian map:
one could be similar to world 2.0 map, taking 4 or 5 continents and as many sub-continents as the number of italian regions...

Image

Italy is subdivided into 20 regions (regioni, singular regione). Five of these regions enjoy a special autonomous status that enables them to enact legislation on some of their specific local matters, and are marked by an *:

Abruzzo (L'Aquila)
Basilicata (Potenza)
Calabria (Catanzaro)
Campania (Naples, Napoli)
Emilia-Romagna (Bologna)
Friuli-Venezia Giulia* (Trieste)
Lazio, Latium (Rome, Roma)
Liguria (Genoa, Genova)
Lombardy, Lombardia (Milan, Milano)
Marche, Marches (Ancona)
Molise, (Campobasso)
Piedmont, Piemonte (Turin, Torino)
Apulia, Puglia (Bari)
Sardinia*, Sardegna (Cagliari)
Aosta Valley*, Valle d'Aosta (Aosta)
Tuscany, Toscana (Florence, Firenze)
Trentino-South Tyrol*, Trentino-Alto Adige, (Trento)
Umbria (Perugia)
Sicily*, Sicilia (Palermo)
Veneto (Venice, Venezia)

This could be a really good way to reproduce a modern Italy map...

If not, if you prefer to make a smaller map I suggest other 2 options:

- you could take inspiration from Italy hystory and make a map of Italy at a certain age..(it could be quite cool)

- or you coud consider the idea to make a physical map of Italy.....


by the way, about your map, you placed rome in the wrong position, instead it should be placed where actually there's a bordering circle

Lupo (and others) - thanks for the all the feedback so far. I considered making the map true to the current region borders, but thought it would be too many, and the map would be too busy. The map you posted I already saw and got excited at first, but it was too much. I was going to have a +1 army bonus to hold Rome (even though it’s in the wrong position) – then I thought instead of having the Vatican as +1 instead (the true Italian Roman Catholic Army!!). Let me think about the topography style map & the historic italy sounds cool also.

Anyway, I would prefer to keep the map with 42 countries, 7 or 8 territories. Unless someone feels strongly against it. I’m kinda busy the next few days, but will work on it & post an update early next

I love the idea of an Italy map. In fact I was going to try to do one myself but someone was working on one so I didn't.

Anyway I like your map but it would be nice if the names of the regions and cities were in Italian. If you need any help with that I am available or I can give you links to Italian maps.

On the army bonus, I think it's a great idea but I would give that to Roma (Rome). Rome is part of history...it's the eternal city. :) And anyway the Vatican is in fact inside Rome!

i was thinking that it could be possible to rotate 90° Italy map, in order to make a more detailed map using the same space...

about Rome you could do whatever you wish, but please locate it in the right position... Moreover I would prefer a different territory division changing some of the territories you created and in some cases also their names
