I'm thinking of making a map of the mongol empire, but there are various ways of doing it. The main theme I want is a big mongol area (about half the size of what it was at its peak) and then another area about the same size, but unconquered. This would occupy the area which the mongols hadn't captured by the mid 1220's, but had by their peak. The main set up would be 1 player as the mongols and the rest as the respective un-mongolized nations/cultures.
Sound easy?
Well, apparently not, as the map would have two play-styles; 1 mongol player vs an array of opponents OR normal gameplay. For this reason, there should be one mega-mongol-bonus, for all the 1225ish mongol territory, with the default value of 0, which can be increased for the mongols expansion game-style, and bonuses inside the 1225ish mongol territory which are roughly the same size as the other nations in the map.
There are many implications of use for this map, e.g. the Mongols clan could find it good for roleplays. It would also be a decent diplomacy map with one divided mongol team and an anti-mongol team.
And about mongol bonus names... Considering the mongols' expansion was somewhat like an expanding pool of blood on a rather flat floor (gradually increasing but not being stopped by any real geographical/political boundaries (except for big lakes)), it would be best to have each bonus as some sort of generic pre-mongolized or post-mongolized series of nations, but the nations are divided by a line, one half of the nation would be mongol-[nation name] and the other half would be the same, just without the 'mongol-' prefix. This would mean the nations on the border of the mongol territory would have to be quite big, which actually fits together with the fact that a lot of the surrounding territory to the mongols was rather like wasteland (just grassland and stuff).
Any ideas or potential issues with the map would be gladly accepted!

if there would be a map I could possibly point out some issues .... The idea sounds nice so far. You should give it a go.

It's implied. Not saying fault in our stars was good ; it's just an out of the usual chick flick/book imo.
