Austria–Hungary, also known as the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Dual Monarchy or the k.u.k Monarchy was a state in Central Europe ruled by the House of Habsburg, constitutionally a monarchic union between the crowns of the Austrian Empire and the Kingdom of Hungary. The state was a result of the Ausgleich or Compromise of 1867, under which the Austrian Habsburgs agreed to share power with a separate Hungarian government, dividing the territory of the former Austrian Empire between them. The Dual Monarchy existed for 51 years until 1918, when it dissolved following military defeat in the First World War.

This would be a great map and I'd definitely play it!

There should be a separate territory where you can occupy the two thrones as Franz Josef did, The Emperor of Austria and the King of Hungary. Maybe like an inset depicting the two thrones or perhaps a bonus for holding Budapest and Vienna.

Also I think Bosnia-Herzegovina should have some sort of different status as it was annexed in 1905, so rather late in the existence of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Perhaps no bonus for holding it or something?

I think the map should have a variety of terrain features as well to depict the many land features of the empire. So mountains in the Italian and Austrian bit, the Danube river also very prominent.

I would favor not taking an ethnic approach to carving up the map as it just gets too complicated, the terrs. should be drawn on a provincial border basis I think.

Finally, someone to undertake such a task. I've been wanting this for a long time and I hope it does exceptionally well.

I'm in favour of the last option, honestly i'm not a big fan of insets.

About mountains and river, absolutely YES!
No ethnic approach, specially for this zone. ;)

Cool idea and good work so far!

But maybe you can make the color softer? For me at least the present scheme grates on the eyes...

Also, a suggestion: maybe add an auto-decrease on Sarajevo? This makes historical sense because it was the squabbling for this particular piece of land that sent the empire to its doom. Just a thought, anyway...

And like I said before, cool idea. :)

Hey, great idea for a map, looks awesome so far !

I've been waiting for some time for someone to take this subject for map-making purposes, and seeing it in the foundry is just great; being myself from there makes it even greater 8-)

Keep it up!

Unusual style of graphics, I love it. The map itself could only use a few tweaks graphically, it looks good enough to play as is.

The flags you put on the map and the picture you have in the bottom right are very blurry.
See if you can bring down the impassibles and one way attack from above the map to below it so that all the legend is in one general area.

Is there a reason you made bonuses for certain amounts of territories rather than an entire continent? (Just curious)
- I like the way you placed neutrals and arranged the two smaller bonuses on the map, but I have some concerns about other bonuses.
- Transylvania needs 2 neutrals placed in it, I would say. Currently it gives a 2 bonus with 2 regions to defend and no need to go through any neutrals to get it. I think if you placed one on Hunyad and Haromszek, it would balance it out. The reason I don't want to place one in Temes is because it adds a defense to the southern border that helps to get the bonus rather than hinders. The same goes for Maros-Torda, except this would do the same for the Galicia bonus.
- 4 is too much for Austria, I would suggest reducing the bonus to 3.

More proof that maps coming out of the foundry are getting better and better, keep up the good work.

Its awesome to see this map in drafts!

Gameplay wise... the bonus regions are a tad hard to read.

I'd bump up the bonus amount on everything but Austria and Hungary by 1.

I also think that Galicia ought to be part of the Austrian Empire. I think its cool that there's a bonus for holding each seat of the Duel monarchy... it might be interesting if the game came down to two players holding one each.

I think you should consider a sea link along the islands of the Dalmatian coast... or perhaps another territory.

Anyway, that's all I see for gameplay at the moment... I'll offer some more when you get going on graphics adjustments. Nice start, I look forward to playing this one!
