I'm not going to spoil anything so I keep it quiet until someone figures out on what it is based. Call it project Polar Bears

Well I've been staring at this for ages, and I can't work it out. It seems to be roughly based on population centres, and the sizes thereof, but I don't see how that relates to the numbers (10, 15 & 30).

Europe's the most exciting continent for WarLight games.

No, but so many folk make Europe maps that loads of well built maps come out. For Warlight games, generally squares work the best - Poland and Macedonia are popular country maps here. But really, it's as exciting as any other continent.

Anyhow, the map idea - something like the Polish borough map, where the big territories don't count for much, but it's the forts you must capture. But where is Sjaelland? Why is Nordjylland not have it's own island? Moonsund? Balaeres?

I'm stumped, but here's how far I got:

The map is from between 1992 and 2002.
It's not based on city population, because Warsaw has less inhabitants than Hamburg or Budapest (but is marked red while the others are green). However... It is about something that correlates very well with population.

Lisbon is very well represented for its size.

The map somehow doesn't include Asian Russia, but it does include Syria and Iraq.

Crimea was part of Ukraine a little bit longer. But FR Yugoslavia shows your map is older. Or maybe that has nothing to do with the purpose of the map.

1. Amsterdam is at least worth as much as Brussels
2. Zeeland is called Flevoland and visa versa
3. It looks like a great map!

European fleets, European cities. You really thought I would place some american skylines into an european map? Actually the one with the blue circle represents luxembourg city skyline, The green circle saratov skyline and red the london skyline.

The map looks simple enough..

Population densitys with big towns involved.

Cities e.g London = 15

Dublin = 10

I don't know um... Athens 5? You know what I mean :(

5 = Towns..

3 = Minor towns

2= Important trademarks..

1= villages..

Am I right?

well i dont see the map clearly, but i would swear its not population.
It would seem Manchester for instance is marked green despite being only the 9th most populated city in the UK... I'm leaning more towards area of each city?

cities are rated on multiple things: industry, population, tourism, culture

I'd guess it's either 1890-1920, 1750-1820 or 1100-1150.

Ok I'll help you out. The map is based on a strategic boardgame that even has its own map here on warlight.net . It's very popular in France and the first letter of the game is a z.

I just conducted a search through all the WarLight maps that have a 'Z' in, but I couldn't find any that begin with that letter.

Cities have inner cities or castles while bordered by other cities which haven't. Also , the surrounding of a big city should be negative.

Nobody still realised that 10,15,30 stands for 10 armies per turn , 15 armies per turn and 30 armies per turn?

^^^ I definitely associated the numbers with income...

But when people said that the income didn't correlate exactly with the current populations of the cities, I think you lost a lot of guessers. :)

( I wasn't even in the hunt for guessing, and my local time right now has nothing to do with it.)

It does look like a very cool map though. :)

Where the heck did you get this fact from?
Manchester is the 3rd largest city in the UK.
I presume that the city values also take political significance into account (making capitals and the such more valuable) as well as balance.
Also, 10, 15 and 30 are very high values for individual territories, especially considering how many cities are depicted in the map.
