Ok im keeping this short and quick because my computer keeps crashing and i'm tired of typing all this.

For the past two week's i have been working on a map it is near completion but i would like some help finding territory's which should be connected but aren't. The map is fictional and take's place in the book i'm writing.

<here is a link to the map>
http://warlight.net/Map.aspx?ID=10688

If you're willing to help out please reply, and if you like the map and want to see more of the world in my book, please help me because once this one if finished i can start my work on the others.

Thanks for all the help in advance.

I don't like your map because you make a view of Europe in the future and the way you erase empires to replace it by an new empire that today exits...
It's the world you know...Greece and FYROM hate each other but in your map FYROM has controlled albania , bulgaria , Greece and even ... Turkey?? Sorry but... some nationalities are going to dislike your map. Maybe you could make something neutral for everyone?

@the King this isn't in the future it's in a alternate universe, and the nation's are ruled by force there is no getting along, everyone is oppressed by the ruling class. There also was no empire erasing i honestly don't see where you got that from.

The Kind, are you suggesting he change his book, and his map because you think that someone cares if they are controlled by someone else in this version of someone's imagination???
I am half spanish and personally don't really like that spain is controlled by Portugal, but if Colman seems to think that they do, from some random circumstances which he thought up, then fine.
Also the same with Ireland controlling the United Kingdom, I don't see how it would happen, but it is only imagination, so who cares really?

So please explain to me how "some nationalities are going to dislike your map".

Please rename your map name to ' Europe fictional ' instead of 'Europe in the 2000's'
if you think your map is fictional in the universe

' Potota '(yes you also spelled my name wrong) , as I said the Republic of Macedonia hates Greece and Bulgaria. they even hate them so hard that they have greek nazi flags. and also claim the capital of Bulgaria as the capital of The Republic of Macedonia.

This is a propagenda from FYROM
don't thin that europe is a peacefull continent :



( I don't support them)

The King what you are saying is that: "this is not what Europe will look like in the year 2123, so therefore your map is invalid, you can only name it that if it accurately represents what the world will look like in that year, and because everyone knows it wont be like this don't call it that".
Everyone knows that a map named in the future will be form someone's imagination and wont take it seriously...

I am pretty sure that this is a typo, you mean he would take it seriously (or your whole argument falls to shreds).
But why would he take it seriously on a map, made by some random guy? If this person was from Macedonia making a map to show that it is better than the other Balkan countries then yeah there might be a problem, but it isn't is it? It is just some random person who made a book and in this fictional world he made in his head he said why not have Macedonia control all of Balkans?

Your map is full of inconsistencies. You have a names of bonuses on english and german. For example: Frankreich and France:)
Bonus named Chita in european Russia? That is in eastern Siberia:)
Not to tell how unrealistic are those empires...

I named all the bonus's in the language that the nation use's, While some language's could not be recognized i decided to just use English for them. I named all bonus's and territory's after city's and town's that are in that nation in real life. There actual locations are irrelevant.

Now then if you read anything else and not just look at the map you'd know.
1. This is Fiction
2. This is a alternate universe, meaning that all history and economic positions that the nations are in now is irrelevant.

Once again this is fiction any actual locations of any city, town, or province/region are irrelevant.

Missing connections:

North midlands <-> East Midlands (England)
Ile-de-France <-> Picardy (France)
Ile-de-France <-> Rhones-Alpes (France)
Aquitaine <-> Mirandela (France/Spain)
Unnamed <-> Unmnamed (North-west Zentrale)
Sognefjord <-> Trollheimen (Norway)
Trollheimen <-> Rjukan (Norway)
Dovre <-> Unnamed (Norway/Sweden)
Unnamed (same as the one above this one) <-> Unnamed (Mid-Sweden)
Unnamed <-> Unnamed (Eastern Zentrale)
Unnamed <-> Unnamed (Bulgaria/Greece)

Also I would consider to lower your empire bonuses. France and Italy are quick to grab and give a huge income advantage early in the game.

Furthermore:
Why are Italien and Sicilia worth 3?
Why a difference between Frankreich and Sweiz on income (why is that bonus called Frankreich anyway, that is not the name for that area)

Also your borders do not seem to be very smooth, look in these forums to find tips and help to get them better.

I Named it Frankreich because i felt like it.

Thanks i connected the one's you told me about, and i lowered Italien, Sicilia, France and Italy.

I also looked up on the forums on how to make it look better but that require's me to redo everything in the map designer and redo all the bonus's, line's, etc. But since this is my first map I decided to let it slide this time.

I don't think you understand the idear of an alternate universe. Lemme give you a very simple example. Take everything in History , the Mongols , the Depression , the Chinese , the Pacific Ocean Trade, every war, and throw it out the window. Assume nothing except it's a whole new timeline.

alternate universe's can be anything that's the whole theory of the multiverse. an alternate universe can be something where history went the correct way up to, lets say 1500's where then lets say the papal states started attacking all the Italian states and created a empire that eventually took over all of Europe.

By the definition, The (Alternate universes) The multiverse (or meta-universe, metaverse) is the hypothetical set of multiple possible universes (including the one unique universe we live in) that together comprise everything that physically exists: the entirety of space and time.

A alternate universe can be anything with infinite possibility's. Before you say i don't know what a alternate universe is please make sure that you do.

But a big requirement with alternative universes is that you specify where the timelines (ours and the alternative one) split. I.e. what happened that made your world possible? For example, Europe without Napoleon would be shaped very differently. The Italian states would still be independent, Poland possibly still divided, a weaker UK etc. The trick is to make a very small change result in an entirely different universe, and to describe exactly what happened after the change. It's not a sandbox, you can't just put random lands with random countries.

bonus values definitely need to be refixed, map looks good though.

One suggestion, I suggest a different color for every bonus. I can see Spain's bonuses are yellow and germany's are red and so on, but it is really messy, and very hard to identify individual bonuses. I suggest just getting rid of that color system, and just using random colors for every bonus.

Last thing, there are many bonus worth 8-18 territories that involve a lot of territories to take. Split those up. Those large bonuses can be divided into more individual bonuses that will increase the fun.

Well Moros that is a excellent point and it can all be explained for just $14.99

@Gladiator Yea i'm having trouble with the bonus's this is my first map so im really trying my best to do this but i really don't have a way to decided yet on how much a bonus should give. I'll split some of the bonus's up and see how that works.

@Moros Alright i'll try different shades of the color's.
