I've recently created a map resembling Europe in 1812, and it is about to entre the test phase. I already have some volunteers, but it would be good if I could have 2-4 more. If you're interested, just reply, and I'll add you to the list.

Crimea does not connect to Turkey properly. Good looking map though.

Also, there must be about a dozen other missing connections, please take some time to carefully look over and fix them. Moscow, and other territories in Russia in particular.

You made an extremely impressive map that I'd love to test out. The bonus system is not ideal but I can live with it. There's also a missing connection between Bogholm and Morbylanga (Öland, Sweden) Am I to understand that the city of Danzig was independent in 1812?

I'll test :). I like the map, it looks interesting, but i have few remarks.

1. Please check the connections carefully. We can do it in test faze too.

2. I have a problem with bonuses clarity. Considering they are all the same colour maybe you should place the bonus boxes right next to the bonuses. This way it's a bit of a mess and you have to learn them or spend too much time going trough all of them. It is a issue i find with many maps and could be just me.

3. Maybe make the side bonuses (megabonuses or whatever you call them) a bit larger and add some decorations. I could help if you have hard time with it.

This can be a great map, so think carefully about these issues. The final word is yours of course.

Cheers and have fun :D

Nightshade: it's difficult to get the last few, that's why I'm doing a test game ,they're the bets way to spot problems.

Moros: Great, I'll add you to the game when I make it. Danzig was a semi-independent city that was taken from Prussia by Napoleon during this period, but it was re-united with Prussia after.

Incaman: Thanks for helping, I'll take that into consideration. The territory connection problems should be solved after the test game.

Bournemouth in 1812? Back then Bournemouth would have probably would have been a tiny hamlet at most. It was just the piece of coastline between Christchurch and Poole. It never started to develop into a town until the Victorians started going there on holiday. Southampton or Poole would be a more appropriate name for that territory.

I just can help you with names in Spain.

Probably I skipped some connections but I'm pretty sure I found the most of the missed connections in Spain and Portugal, I will look for some other countries later if I have time. I hope it helped you.

Thanks for helping me with territory connections, I'll fix those when I can, but don't stress over them too much, they were the main reason I created this test game. I'll change Bournemouth to Southampton.

For starters nice map. I myself actually started one of these about a year ago. Luckily for you and me its been abandoned.

Personally I have a couple of issues with the map:

1. Like your other maps all the territories in a super bonus are all the same. Which makes it a lot harder to find where all the smaller bonuses are. Its way to late to do this now tho :p

2. All the bonus boxes are placed away from the territories which makes it even more confusing.

3. There is no division between each super bonus, let alone each small bonus :p

A few corrections I've seen, only in England :

Wetmouth >>> Weymouth
Birdport >>> Bridport
Chipping Norton should be Oxford
Cerne Abbas should be Dorchester or Yeovil

Wigston <-> Leicester
Leicester <-> Grantham
Richmond <-> Lancaster
Worchester <-> Stratford upon Avon
Birmingham <-> Coventry
Paisley <-> Girvan
Donegal <-> Sligo
Coothill <-> Dundalk
Castlerea <-> Roscommon

Wurzburg should be Württemberg ?

Okay, it seems a lot of you are worried about the large bonus chains that are on the map, so I've changed it such that the bonuses are always near the territories they include.


This is the version that will be updated during the test game.

I found a typo in the Netherlands, it is Breda, not Brreda. Also, consider putting a different name in Enschede's place, Enschede is either in the Emmen area or right at the border. When I looked at Google Maps it seems the Enschede region is entirely in modern day Germany...
