|A map detailing the political situation and the power balance during 1444 AD.
This map is meant to be a psuedo-replica of the map of Europa Universalis IV.

As an EU4 AND Warlight player, this map is pretty damn good. It's very a very accurate copy of the European part of the EU4 map. The provinces' names, locations and owners are all correct, as far as I know. Aside from a few borders looking nasty, this map is pretty much amazing and worth a 5/5.
The development/3 method to set the income value of every province is great. Not much strategic use, but with all bonuses set to the same amount it might as well be a pretty good FFA Europe. The big deal here is the RP/Diplomacy usage: It has specifically set bonuses to make the slots, it has a backstory of it's own and - surprisingly - is easy to make slots that combine balancement and reality.
And as someone who HATES playing naval nations in EU4 (true pain defines), this map is already better than the original for the fact I don't need boats to attack Gotland from Sweden. Ah, so GLORIOUS not to have to suicide my whole navy into Denmark's to take that fort. xD

A lovely diplomacy map. One of the largest 'pure' diplomacy maps in existence deserves a 5/5 for sure.
Yes, nations can snowball and yes, deploying 100s of armies can get daunting but it is a diplomacy map. It is what it is designed for.
As, a devout player of EU4, I can safely say this map stays true to the game. It is perfect for recreating scenarios and games in the game. And, it is fairly balanced which is always a plus.

It's certainly a good map, the one bonus per territory is excellent for diplomacy games as it makes it easier to negotiate peace and makes the player choose which territories will he prioritise during war time.
However, I do believe some bonuses have to be reworked, mainly in the Islamic nations for example Basrah (Modern day Kuwait), Rosetta (Modern day Egypt), Alexandria, Sidon, the Holy lands.
I wanted to make a Local Deployment game but couldn't because of "Overlapping Bonuses", I had to go all throughout the list of bonuses in order to find that the Perm bonus (Worth 3 or 4 I don't remember) included two territories, please fix that.
Overall it's a really good map, if the bonuses and Perm get reworked I'll give it a 5.

Why there is no Epirus Achaea connection?
Also, map has too many territorries. Even for diplomacy games. Also, why big bonuses are set to 0 by default?
But overall quite good.

Great and quite historic. It is based(I think) on Europa Universalis, as seems. I think that countries("superbonuses") should have some armies per turn.

Where does the northern AI get so many armies each turn? This game doesn't make sense.

There is a missed connection but other than that it's a decent map.

Great Map!!! Simply beautiful
Review by sasa on 1/13/2018.
Low bonus for complete areas compare to income frm individual cells. Interesting , but, makes the game simple, enables only effective strategy - grab every turn as many cells as possible....
