A WW1 Europe Map: 11/5/2012 00:48:23

I am in the process of creating a WW1 map for Europe. I'm around 2/3 of the way done with drawing, and I already have all bonuses figured out except Russia and Spain. I based territory and bonuses off of number of troops mobilized. Except for countries that were neutral or mobilized less than 4 million troops, there are number of mobilized troops + 5 territories in each country. There are region bonuses and country bonuses. Region bonuses are number of territories - 2. There are also country bonuses, which are the number of troops(in millions) mobilized. Countries with over an extra 3/4 million troops are rounded up to the next million. Though they are multiple countries, I plan on making North Africa and the Balkans country bonuses. Most countries have 2 region bonuses and a country bonus, however since Germany and Russia mobilized over 10 million troops, I will give them 3 region bonuses.

I have not drawn Russia yet because I am not sure what to do. How should I divide Russia for bonuses? I was thinking to possibly divide it into areas of White Russian control and Red Russian control during the Russian Revolution. I am not sure whether I should do that, divide it between Russia and minority countries, or just north, south and west.

I also have some more questions. How do you make text visible on the map(with Inkscape)? Should I have a Scandinavia bonus with Norway, Sweden, and Denmark? Should the Balearic Islands and Spanish Morocco be part of the bonus for Spain or North Africa? Should I include Iceland?

If you have suggestions for bonuses and territories please write them. I could also use better names for bonuses, mine are not detailed. Any other suggestions please state them, I can use the help.

Here is the link for my map: http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer.aspx?PreviewMap=16748 . I just put them into bonuses for now because it is just a preview.

Thanks. Unfortunately I will not be able to have the map ready by Armistice Day. It should be open to testing by Tuesday

Austia Hungary held most of the Balkans didn't it? So should the Balkans superbonus be part of the Austria-Hingary one?
