Hi im making my second map and I would be happy if u could comment ang give some suggestions about my map, I need 2 make better borders because for now they overlap.
And rate initialy if u can, because I did this map in order to be playable.
So If your rating falls waek, I will not put so much effort to it.

the first thing that I want to improve it is to the value of the bonus was in the middle of it, because now it does not look too aesthetically

Every colour mean another bonus. Its 115 territories for now and 29 bonuses.

I can already give a bad approval due to a lack of determination because you need people to approve it. What would be the whole point of having determination if you're just going to give up if people hate it. It's your map do what you want with it.

It looks like it has the potential to be very good, or could be quite poor.

Some of this will depend on what you do with those one territory bonuses, like Macedonia/Albania..

sory forgot to wrote, that what i wrote every couloured territory is needed to take bonus, the formula of size of bonus is ( number of territories -1) so if we have bonus made from 4 territories, we get bonus +3. Exception is bonuses made from 1 territory for them u get +1.
Also i wasnt sure what to do with albania and macedonia they are 2 close to each other to be bove bonused +1, thats why i made this thread.
I wanna make this map best i can so i need lots of suggestions , also critical.

Whatmore i was wondering about mass bonuses (for countries(ukraine, russia, turkey)) but im not sure if mass bonusses want give to much adventage.

And i would be greatful if u give me some specific suggestions. Mayby some about bonuses size and placement.

I has numbered each territory, now it should be easier to talk about map(sorry for doing it in paint)

i have no idea about map making, but if it's not big problem, just create superbonuses with 0 value (some people like it, and this way they will be able to use it)

ill probably make that 0 bonues, and all will show in tests, anyway i probably wont make any connections in black sea, the only connection which could i make is to connect territories 25 and 91 like is in real but i'm not sure about that.

And about territory 38, i need 2 do sth with it, it would be 2 good starting point having two neighboring bonuses +1. Any suggestions? Mayby slice one of them?

I vote for getting rid of 38. The rest looks good. The black sea needs no connections (except for 25-91).

I like your map, number 25 is beautiful. I agree with removing 38 and superbonuses arn´t needed.

I would help test.

Can you post a link to the warlight map?

Also, please excuse the ignorance, but what is Territory 38, and will the thousands/millions of people that live there be upset if they're left off? Or do nothing but sheep live there?

Territory 38 is Albania. There are so much Albanians living there, that some of them moved out of Albania to Greece, Macedonia, Montenegro and they are a big minority in those countries. (few million people live in Albania, cca. 3 million). Practically 1% of them has access to Internet...

you could make the black sea with many small territories with no value like on the map Saligia. And the north-east side of the black sea looks not realistic.

I like the new greater bonuses but Central Europe worth too much (should be 1), and West Asia should have less income as well (2), however Middle East worth not enough would be better 4 or 5.

And still suggest that Craiova is part of Oltenia-Moldva, if you change it the balance in Romania still 1-3-4 with better playability.

Territories 1/4, and 2/5 look like they could connect but don't. Maybe clear that up a little bit on the map?

Distributions modes would add complexity and make it play better.

I'm a fan of the Warzones distributions on Chaos's Battle Islands, kinda like Warlords, but about 1/3 of the bonuses... Maybe you could put one start in each super-bonus?

I feel bad for the Caspian Sea, without a label like the Black Sea.

Superbonuses... sometimes its a nice touch to change the colors of the minor bonuses into a the same shade as the superbonus.

Is there a reason the land to the Northwest is Green and the Land to the Southeast is Cream?

Comments:

(1) First thought when viewing the map: "It is too bright."

(2) I played on my phone (big screen for a phone), and I had to surrender on turn 1 because the map takes up too much memory and caused my phone to lag. This only happens on big maps (with over 200 territories). You might want to reduce the amount of memory the map requires, otherwise it might be too cumbersome to play from a phone.

(3) The map's size requires too much zooming in and zooming out to be played smoothly from a phone. Medium Earth and Imperium Romanum don't. Your map has about as many territories as those two. Did you use the map size Fizzer rcommended? Or did you make your map size far larger, thinking it would have a different effect?

Suggestions: (1) Less color, more greys and blacks. Deleting some colors to make them black would reduce the memory required too. (2) Less details, less memory. (3) Play with sizing (so the map can be played with minimal zooming in). Maybe this influences memory most of all (eg, my China: Warring States map probably has more crap in it than your map, but its sizing is different and it never lags on my phone).
