You are speaking of my ultimate goal! In fact, "Modern Middle East" will be most likely my next project. Look at my profile or see post 14 of this thread: https://www.warlight.net/Forum/86615-syria-calling-testers
In addition, I have another map planned known as "The Cradle of Civilization", which will focus on the historical significance of the Levant/Fertile Crescent. This will include many of the historical bonuses that you would like to see in a middle eastern map. However, that will happen after I complete "Modern Middle East."
It will take me a couple of months to make these maps, however.
