I have everything needed to make one. I want it about 600 territories. This will be my first map. I want to make it real world.

I suggest choosing a region who's history interests you, and then selecting a timeperiod. let it be noted that from about 400 AD to 1000 AD, it's almost impossible to find fully detailed reference maps.

Sorry for the stupid question, but how do you make a map?

^Click that help tab, and you will find a link showing you how.

I would not recommend a first map of 600 territories. Instead fool around a bit and make a small map, to see how mapmaking works.

I'd recommend doing Tribes of Gaul. Those are pretty well documented, and it shouldn't be difficult to find map sources.

Ghengis has a good idea; too many WWI and WWII maps in my opinion. If you are looking for an accurate map, that should help :

@ OnlythePie Well, that map is for the ancient world. I would like to have a medieval one. ;)

The play-ability of these maps needs to be considered as well. Gaul, the World in the year 950 and the Old World all fit this, but something like the Empire of Charles V or the Napoleonic Empire may not be so good when, at least for diplomacy games, which is normally what historical maps are used for.

It all depends on the level of imagination one has.

Any hysterical maps can be turned into a successful playable map

Eg: ROR

^^^ Desert Fox, are you saying that a detailed map of the Western Front doesn't exist at all?
(Or just in Warlight?)

Malta at 1798 could be a nice map

It has 68 administrative divisions, what would be good for 1v1(already existing), but really nice would be if you make every division a bonus and make the coastal towers and other defence buildings a 3D territory.

That first map looks awesome, would make a very beautiful map. The second one also looks like it would be really strategic :)

So many damn European maps already though guys, I like the historical maps but damn lets get some historical world maps done. I want 1. A large ww1 map 2. A large Mediterranean map preferably for 1200-1400 A.D. (Italy, Greece, the entire middle east, Spain, France, and north africa) 700 territories would be great for that and 3. A map that has bonuses by territory not by region and has at least 2k territories so I can use it for ww2 matches. I have also noticed there aren't really any good maps for the oceans. Ik i could just play them one at a time like that large Pacific map or the large Atlantic map but i would like a map that has most of the islands on earth and all the continents. In other words I want something like Issanders 2.2k map but with more territories and I would prefer for them to be territory by territory. Another map idea I would love to see is the world circa 1820 with about 2k territories. A large middle east map would be neat too, maybe with some islands from the horn of africa to india included.
