Time for a challenge!
The real-time maps on Warlight can be completed! We can make maps about all the countries in the world on Warlight! That's why I ask you to make a real-time map about every country that isn't made on Warlight.
How can we do this? Well it's simple! Look at this:

Red represents the maps of countries that aren't made on Warlight
Green respresents the maps of countries that are made on Warlight

Let your voice be heard!
To the map-makers, write a comment where you will pick 1 or more countries that are depicted red in the image.

This image will be edited until it shall shine green!

India would be the best map of what remains. And it offers the most strategy and history: ancient kingdoms, British Raj, modern provinces.

The creator of this map is no longer active, would someone be interested in obtaining the rights to it from Fizzer and update/improve it?

What if, say, someone made a map with all of the central American countries? Is that on the list, or is this for maps exclusively in one country. I don't mean "What about world maps, which have all" or Europe maps, or etc, but for example, a central America map, or a Baltic States map? I notice people don't play much of some national maps because they only have about 50 or 60 territories, and many real-time game players do not like maps that small.

Well, A country can be divided in more pieces and then in more pieces. Let's take Latvia for exemple http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/34/Latvijas_novadi_un_pagasti.png
You can make a country so big as you want

@ The King [Belgian gentlemen] and other people

The Norway site (pictures) contains a virus.
I try to download the picture and my computer crashed.

I was thinking of making a map of Norway but that country has so many ridiculous islands which is to much work for me to make.
I question the tactical aspect either, if you start in the North, you have a huge advantage (same with the japan map)

That's weird it didn't have virusses on my computer. The site was wikipedia, weird although.
Maybe I'll do Norway then.

And I'll also try to finish Gabon (http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=30531)

Good luck with Mongolia...

I would like to do the map or Armenia, but it has some very small regions that I'm not sure how to do.
If you give some advices about how to do it I'll start to do this map.


EDIT:
This is how the map is looking: http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=30649
I'm using the map wich was posted before: http://www.electoralgeography.com/new/en/wp-content/gallery/armenia2008/2008-armenia-presidential-municipalities-bagdasaryan.png

I can't make territories bigger, because I'm using the limits of the Warlight map, so I want to know if this would be ok or I should stop doing anything or changing how I do it.

And I'm also facing another problem, I can't find anywhere the name of the regions, the most I got was a map of the cities located in the map (Impossible to me to see to which territory is) and this in Armenian, language that I don't speak.

So if you can help me in anything I would appreciate it, or I would have to stop doing the map.

Wikipedia Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_municipalities_of_Armenia

Armenia cointains around minus plus 930 communities. This is far too much.
Maybe you can contribute the small communities together to form a bigger one, and the little communities in the urban areas can unify.
Than you can get around 400 territories, wich is far way better than 930.

maybe you can also do something with Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nagorno-Karabakh_Republic)

If you're in the most rural area , you can use the site http://www.virtualarmenia.am/main.htm but you must click on that clickable image with colored provinces

Thank you for the information, at first I will try to make the map as bigger as I can, and then I will unify some regions, but it will take me some time to name all the regions.

I was also thinking about do something about Andorra, a small country between France and Spain, but it smaller division is this one:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parishes_of_Andorra
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/07/Andorra_location_map.svg/400px-Andorra_location_map.svg.png
Just 7 territories, so I don't know if it worths. What do you think?
