There's a few things I'd like to point out. First off, one of your American territories is improperly named: it should be "Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island", not "Massachusetts and Connecticut". Second, I'd suggest signifying the Kurdistan region in Turkey and Iraq. Third, I see you named some territories after cities, and others after states, provinces, and nations. This might bother some players. They probably won't be bothered by the one city bonuses like New York, though. Last of all, you have some of the wrong cities. For example, you included cities such as North Battleford and Goose Bay, but you missed bigger and more important/significant cities such as Saskatoon and St. Johns and Halifax. I will also say that I like your map in some ways better then other world maps, things like the detail you put into it.

goodgame, the territories named after provinces/countries were for provinces/countries too small to represent in a bonus, and the territories named after countries have their own bonus as I don't want to combine 2 countries into one bonus. Also, the reason I included some cities and not others that may be more important is due to the fact that I don't want a region too cluttered with cities (New England and SW Canada are already pretty crowded) which is why I didn't add Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Tianjin, Halifax, Quebec city, Boston, Bordeaux, etc... (I might add Saskatoon tho) and decreased the amount of cities in Europe quite a bit. Also I'm going to add countries/special regions bonuses later so I may add Kurdistan. (Also point out where North Battleford is I don't remember putting that in).

the map looks ennermous. From hindsight a lot of effort seem to be put into this work.

some feedback (with more to follow):
the territory names seem very randomly chosen. One thing I noticed very fast is that territories names are named after both regions and cities in a mixed cohesion. There's no clear line if a territory is named after a city or a region. Take Spain for example: the region Galicia is named A Coruna and Extremadura is named Mérida while the regions Catalonia and Aragón keep their names.

and for aesthetic, you could use a blue blackground to represent the oceans and the seas, with maybe some information of the map on the top or bottom. Bonusses for big countries (Russia,USA,Canada) are lacking.

Thanks Belgian, I plan to add the the country bonuses later. (I used Mapcarta for the territory names) I already have blue outlines on the ocean so maybe dark/ light gray?

I just checked the map, and it's not a good map, because the earth is not a sphere. NASA has fooled a lot of people by claiming that the earth is a sphere. The truth is that earth is flat.

I hope that's a joke. There's tones of evidence, and for some proof, that the earth is round. There is no evidence that the earth is flat. The earth is round.

How about regional bonuses such as the Caucasus, Virginia together, Mongolia with Inner Mongolia since Inner Mongolia should be with Mongolia, but China has it, etc.

The earth is flat, and the heaven is above the earth, not under the earth and neither is the heaven at the side of the earth. Furthermore, Allah lets rain fall down from below His Throne (from the 7th heaven), and the rain comes down to the cloud, where it's filled up with rain, and thereafter, it falls down on earth, and with every raindrop, there's an angel who places that particular raindrop on the place which Allah wanted that raindrop to be put. And this all happens because this is how Allah wants it to be.

As for the sun and the moon, then both planets are smaller than earth, and both have an independent light. The fact that the sun doesn't shine on the earth entirely is evidence that the sun is smaller than earth, hence that there's light at some place on earth while at the same time there's another place where it's dark on earth. The sun rotates around earth, hence why I see the sun from the east during the morning, and I see it going down at sunset from the west.

The earth is flat.

Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): [He] who made for you the earth a bed [spread out] and the sky a ceiling and sent down from the sky, rain and brought forth thereby fruits as provision for you. So do not attribute to Allah equals while you know [that there is nothing similar to Him].
Surah al-Baqarah, ayah 22.

Al Qahtani said in his Nuniya:

"The astronomer and the soothsayer and their kind lie, they claim they possess the knowledge of Allah.

For them both the earth is spherical and they have this statement in common.

And the earth is flat for the people of intellect based on the true proof from the clear Qur'an."

The Earth is not flat since if it is flat, there would be no overlapping clouds and we have to go to the opposite direction unlike now, we can go from Singapore to New York without using the EU traffic and we can travel exactly at the equator, and there are several sea factors for it. If we can't go through the opposite direction, then the earth is flat, we would not have international datelines, our time is the same, and we will just go upside down because of gravity.

There's no such thing as gravity. Allah said (interpretation of the meaning): {And He holds the sky so as it cannot fall on the earth except with His permission.} This ayah can be found in Surah al-Haij, ayah 65.

The ones who believe in gravity, will not believe in this ayah.

Also, people who believe in gravity, believe that the moon and sun cause ebb and flow for the ocean and they claim that this is "due to gravity." They think that the moon and sun have control over the sea. So much disbelief.....Allahu al-Musta'an.

Angel who is authorized with the ocean.

From Mu'tamar bin Sulayman, from Sabaah from Ashras who said: "Ibn 'Abbaas was asked about ebb and flow, so he (Ibn 'Abbaas) said: Verily, an angel is authorized with the ocean, so when he (the angel) puts his foot, it (the ocean) overflows, and when he raises his foot, it (the ocean) recedes."

Source: Tafsier of Abd-ar-Razzaaq (3004), Musnad of Imam Ahmad (23238), Tarikh al-Kabir by Al-Bukhari (42/2), Gharieb al-Hadeeth by Ibn Qutaybah (346/2).

PS: There are even more narrations about that an angel is authorized with the ocean, and I will translate more of them, in shaa Allah.

Peace and blessings be upon the Prophet Muhammad, his family and companions.

Well, if the earth is flat, then we would not see the moon every 2 days

Rain falls down from below the Throne of Allah.

With a good chain (isnaad), it was narrated from 'Ikrimah who said: "Water falls down from the seventh heaven; thereafter a raindrop falls down on the cloud like a camel."

Source: Ibn Abi Dunya in al-Matar (4), Ibn Abi Haatim (1469) and Abu Shaykh in al-'Udhmah (4/1258).

أخرج ابن أبي الدنيا في المطر (4) وابن أبي حاتم (1469) وأبو الشيخ في العظمة (4/1258) بسند حسن عن عكرمة قال : ينزل الماء من السماء السابعة فتقع القطرة منه على السحابة مثل البعير .

Here's the Arabic text of the narration that I just translated.

You are believing in the Islam world, it is just a belief. Look at science, science can answer any question

The people of NASA do not possess intellect. The opposite of intellect is whims, and that's what they have in their heart, hence why they philosophize a lot and neglect the clear evidence. They want people to be indoctrinated into becoming atheists.

If you say that, then believe in your own way. Everything will change, your belief, your life, your own self, and most importantly your future. Do not depend on something else, it will affect your life positively and negatively.

I don't entirely trust in either Mohammed or NASA. Mohammed was a prophet, a human, and NASA is a bunch of scientists, also humans. No human has lived a full life without lying, intentionally or unintentionally. Therefore, I don't put blind trust in either.
