Should Kaliningrad remain on the map? If so, should it have its own bonus?

I have a feeling people won't like it... it's supposed to make for relatively quick games....

25 territories
3 continents

-photos at the top are bad
-the textures on the bottom cont. and the middle cont. are pretty ugly.
-im not sure that having only 3 continents will actually lead to 'quicker' games. it seems to me that it would be very hard to get a continent and get bonuses to give you an advantage. therefore people will be dealing with the 3 bonus armies for many turns and that will slow the game down.

Quench it!!! :wink:

Hehe, your feelings were correct...

How could it be designed for shorter games with continents that have at least 4 borders? And the continents are like 1/3 of the map. Would them really be holdable in games with 5-6 players? In fact, I think 32 should be the minimum amount of countries in any map.

Ooooh, and its too ugly, too.

However I feel some potential. Make the image bigger (the playable area, I mean), add more countries, at least 5 more, and create at least 2 more continents... It can become a map. :D

Get rid of the current textures and make them more subtle. Remove pictures. Add the rest of Europe to wherever it should be, even if it's just a black, correctly-shaped mass. LABEL the three countries/continents.

Other stuff, too.

DON'T GIVE UP! Ask for graphics help if you need it, or illegally download programs if the task requires it. I support you in your efforts.

I think the idea of Baltic States could be interesting...but why not 'zoom' in even more, and make a larger country map. Right now, the amount of countries feels too small...

Kaliningrad is not part of the Baltic States. It's a part of Russia. I wouldn't include it at all.

I don't think so, because then Lower Lithuania would be yellow, and the yellow is very similar to the green

Where do you suppose I should make more countries? I've got to basically start over, but that's OK because this wasn't hard.

All areas. :) I'd really just like to see a more zoomed in and focused map of the area...as long as you can include all the Baltic States. Splitting up some of the countries into others, and making a larger map of the area could be interesting.

Does anyone know how to make an image bigger in Inkscape? I have GIMP too but it didn't work well for the kind of map I was aiming this to be....

You can even make it a bit smaller, to add legend, etc. But your other images was really tiny, so its making difficult to add more territories to the map. And I agree about not using any russian area.

How about if you try with 5 continents, friend?

Added legend... that's about it.

It's got 30 territories, where do you reccomend I split them?

Looks promising. Needs a fair few more countries though. 36-40 would be great. I think both Lithuania and Latvia could do with more territories.

Instead of having the bonus names in the back, color code the legend.

It needs more territories too.
