Europe 2050
For the last month or so i have been making my latest map: Europe 2050. It shows a possible insight into what Europe could look like in 40 years time. It may go to extreme lenghts but all changes have been looked into though current and past political relationships between nations. The map is currently going though testing and should be availible in the enxt few days.

New Distribution Modes
With the release of the Europe 2050 map i am also releasing 5 new distribution modes designed for specfic game types, so game organisers can quickly design roleplay and designed games much more quickly with alot less knowlage of how to do so. Information on the 5 new modes are as follows;

Strategic
Strategic is a mode which has featured on some of my previouse maps including Solar System and Falkalnd Islands. It includes a spread out selection of starting positions that aim to give everyone a fairer chance.

Political (Basic)
Political mode has also featured on a few of my maps but has now been reinvented into 2 modes. Political Basic is where 1 province from each country is selected into distribution, with fairty added. It is the ultimate mix of roleplay and strategic!

Political (Roleplay/Full)
Political Roleplay/Full is as the name suggests a full on roleplay design where larger countrys are started off fully controlled. Country must use politics and diplomacy to get controll of smaller neutral countrys.

Apocolypse Vengence
A mix of 2 great game modes, Infection and Plaque. One player starts off as a quickly growing zombie plaque, the other remaining medicalm teams of the world must team togever to defeat it. But once the plaque is defeated there is nothing to stop another medical team to take controll of it and use it fro there own purposes...

Jailbreak
One player is the 'guard' they own a small permiter around the 'prisoners' which are in the middal. However the guard ahs little or no bonuses and so must quickly exspand while fighting off the ever restless prisnors beacouse sooner or latter there going to get out, and when they do there going to need to be recontained!



Overview
The new distibution modes require some change to bonuses in custom game but it will reduce creation time by over 60%. I will be running many games with these new modes and if they are succesfull then they will be implimented into some of my older maps as well as new maps i release.

it should be:

One player is the 'guard' they own a small perimeter around the 'prisoners' which are in the middle. However the guard has little or no bonuses and so must quickly expand while fighting off the ever restless prisoners because sooner or later there going to get out, and when they do there going to need to be recontained!

Accuracy:

  • Lots of things are not really based on anything. Norway conquering Murmansk? Finland wants that area a lot more.
  • Germany conquering Denmark? Austria would be more likely, though highly unlikely.
  • France conquering Belgium? Maybe the southern half, but why would they want all of it?
  • Unity? Piedmont Republic?
    Not even starting on that.
  • And in all those changes, you forgot the Abghazians, Basques, Bavarians, South Ossetians, all people who are a lot closer to independence than Norway is to conquering, the Kola-peninsula, Iceland and Greenland.

Lay-out:

  • The bonuslinks of central Europa are about as far from their territory as possible. That will require constant zooming and scrolling, not to mention the difficulty of finding the right one, as they are not ordered in any way. They're not even spaced apart consistently!
  • But I understand why you placed them apart: they were too big to fit near their countries. Here's a quick solution: make them a few pixels smaller (since they are now already very big), and you can fit 5 of them in the Adriatic sea.
  • The borders overlap everywhere.

Skunk, if you want people to play your maps, you should start listening to what people have to say, and not think everyone who disagrees with you on anything is a troll.

Moros not all changes in countrys are due to conquests and wars. But some of your points i take into consideration but i am not researching into the far depths of Europe politics. Only skimming the surface.

I must say Skunk your maps are starting to get actually pretty decent.
I still dont see myself playing on them often, but good job on keeping it up and making some better maps!
However, those bonus links are terrible! Bonus sizes are weird and not too strategic.
So for the next map I think you should examine what makes maps like medium earth, Europe and Chaos's battle islands good strategic maps.
