A few questions about the Middle East: 6/9/2012 02:09:32

On the [Middle East](http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer.aspx?PreviewMap=9065) map, I just need some clarification from someone with more knowledge of the area.

In the real world (i.e. not on the map you're looking at), do the following places share borders:

|>Maan - Cairo
|>Irbid - Israel
|>Riyadh - Hail (Central Saudi Arabia)

Also, which of these pairs share a border, or neither?:

|>Armenia - Gharel
|>Azerbeijan - Erzerum

Thanks in advance for any input.

Okay, I have adopted the Middle East map, mostly for the sake of cleaning it up visually. You can compare the currently public map:

http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer.aspx?PreviewMap=9065

with the adjusted map:

http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer.aspx?PreviewMap=14232

What I need to know is if anyone knows of any other issues with the map that need to be addressed. This could be as little as a territory name, a bonus value, a single connection, or even a bonus color.

I'd appreciate your thoughts and ideas.

It looks nice! Maybe the unification bonuses can be lower.

the original can be viewed via..

Your new version looks beautiful in comparison, I didn't look too deeply at it, however.. :/

Yeah, I know. The only reason I adopted it was because Matma Rex wasn't interested in implementing the SVG that I edited. I just want to know about any other issues that need to be fixed before I put another version public.

The "I know" was about the older version, not the beautiful part. :-P

Yeah, I can see "a little improvement" to the image. ;) Nice job!

As for feedback, I think it's very rare to use black for a bonus colour (and the black bonus box on a black background looks ugly in my opinion), so how about changing the "Iran Unification" colour to something else (since it's a superbonus, none of the territories will be affected, it's only the bonus box itself).

Do you mind if you separate Nakhchivan(the exclave of Azerbaijan)from Azerbaijan itself and have Armenia connect to Tabriz? You don't have to make Nakhchivan a separate territory, but just for the map to be accurate, please split Azerbaijan.

@Ironheart The map description says that !Romper created the map. Also, I can't quite understand your suggestion about the Gaza Strip, can you explain?

@RvW I agree about the coloring. Changed it and a few other dark ones. Any opinion on the big bonus values?

@i-like-swords Thank you. I changed it and edited the map slightly to make it easier to see that Azerbaijan is still one territory.

Keep the comments coming! I could still use some input concerning the questions in the first post.

I think they're fine now. Some mapmakers set them to 0, I hope you won't.

sorry this is late


maybe you should unite a gaza strip territory with west bank to make one territory.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaza_Strip

Pending public. I decided against adding in the Gaza Strip or Golan Heights for the time being. My main intention was to make the map look better and clear up a few confusing spots.

Very nice, thanks Muppet! Why did you choose to use such soft colours for the bonuses, though?

I thought changing them all to the standard colors would change the feel of the map too much. A bit silly, I know, but I didn't want it to feel like a new map, I wanted it to feel like the same map, just nicer. I changed some of the colors that were too similar(there's still one to be changed on the upper-right that somehow didn't save).
