Description

This map is supposed to be an accurate representation of WWII with territories and bonuses aimed toward creating a balance custom world. There are 8 major 1942 countries to play in the 1942 distribution. It is advised that small countries such as Liberia, Hungary, Nepal and others should be incorporated into their neighboring allies. A 1939 senario distribution is also possible but is unbalanced with the Allies having a major advantage over the Axis. Bonuses should be altered in a custom 1939 historical game to give each team a fair chance.

For a regular game this map also works well although some territories such as Greenland are significantly bigger than others like the Island of Malta for example

Notes:
Ocean territories and Antartica are not part of any bonuses as they had no historical population

This map will be developed further apon suggestions from players and any historical mistakes

The concept is promising but the execution failed to deliver a map that lives up to the scenarios designed for it. The biggest flaw is the construction of bonuses. One entire bonus for Germany, UK, Japan? That means those countries will be out of the fight if an enemy so much as sets foot in their territory! This map would simulate real war and in addition play much more strategically if the great powers were divided into many bonuses. The scenarios won't play well at all on the map as it is. The fact that the mapmaker didn't realize this makes me think they didn't play test games on their map. There are a few errors like inner Mongolia being in the wrong place and probably more since the mapmaker clearly didn't go through with a fine comb. A WWII theaters map is a good idea, but this just doesn't work.

Thanks for the feed back. I have fixed Inner Mongolia and altered most of the larger bonuses that I deemed necessary to have an equal potential loss of troops per turn. Also I did over 5 test games.

Enjoyed the map and it flowed well. Bonuses seemed fair too. I did notice a few missed connections, not sure if they are due a geography boundary or just overlooked. Here are the ones I found:
-In East Australia: Eastern Queensland to Southern New South Wales
-In New Zealand: Wellington to Gisborne and Auckland
-In Eastern Dutch East Indies: Timur to South Sulawesi
-In Southern Japan: Ogasawara Islands to East Coast of Japan
-in Philipines: North Maluku to Mindanao
