here is my first attempt at a map, still need to title the countries...

what do you all think? worth finishing?

what should the bonuses be?

anything I should change? more water connections?

is it too small?

Looks good and you're going to please a lot of people with a new map that isn't a part of Europe! :D

First point though, you need more countries. If I counted right there was 27, you're probably going to need about another 15. You shouldn't have any trouble getting those into China and Japan.

I really like it actually, that will make playability really interesting as the middle of the map is blocked off

I like the idea. :) But I also agree that a few more countries would really help this map, playability wise. I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Something fresh in the Foundry... :) ;)

I suggest splitting japan also, so that it is consistant.




you would benefit in playability to add countries to japan and china.. I like how korea is though.

While i don't subscribe to the notion that all maps should have the same number of territories as the standard world map, this map needs more territories.

Are the divisions of china arbitrary, or are those the actual province borders? Either way, it'd be nice to see better titles for the bonus regions than Upper China and Lower China.

Nice start - play around with it and see what develops.

Are the divisions of china arbitrary, or are those the actual province borders?

the upper/lower division is arbitrary, the province borders are close, but i used liberty and put in the borders by hand.

im going to add prob about 2-3 to japan and and 6-7 to china.

Upper China=Manchura Lower China=Fukien

ill use these.

and ill add names to the areas....

might take me a few days. i gotta prep to go back to work tomorrow...

also, the colour of writing on S.Korea clashes with the bakground. maybe darker green for the bakground OR black for writing

there are currently 5 in north korea - pyongyang is a small area (its the capital of nkorea). I think i will delete it though and make north korea 4. that will take the total down to 42. divisible by 6.

also, the colour of writing on S.Korea clashes with the bakground. maybe darker green for the bakground OR black for writing

i agree. ill make skorea darker, i want all the fonts to be the same.
