Based on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Americas#/media/File:N&SAmerica-pol.jpg this is the first big map of the Americas designed for warlight, and also the only map of the Americas with accurate political borders.

You will have to excuse some distortions, as country subdivisions had to be traced BY EYE without a proper map source! Just like with my Arctic map. Wow.

This map should work for any kind of gameplay, standard or diplomacy.

MOTW Week 280 Winner
October 2021 - changed background color slightly, fixed some obvious distortions
October 2022 - consolidated Canadian Prairies bonus, bigger bonus links for superbonuses to help differentiation, and flags added for major countries.

A very good map,usable for many types of games. I have already used it.
One my suggestion is that some small provinces with cities look a bit like bubbles.
Please change that if you can.
Super work!
Have a good day!

Thanks a whole lot. I had a diversity of gameplay in mind when I made this map, so I'm happy to learn that others also see it for its versatility.

This is a great Americas map! It is sized well for diplos or large FFAs, and the territories/bonuses are very accurate. I am a big fan of the sea connections, they aren’t all over the place like in other large maps and are balanced and intuitive.

I do have a few complaints. Many of the borders overlap and the superbonuses are impossible to differentiate from the regular bonuses. As well, most of the territories bordering the water are circular shaped to be able to fit the army number, but it makes the land look lumpy.

Some flags would have also been nice, the artwork (or lack thereof) is a bit dull. Gameplay and accuracy is spot on so it is still a 5/5 for me :)

Thanks. Superbonuses are represented by somewhat bigger squares, but I kept them small due to a lack of space. The lump territories don't look great, but they are necessary to keep a "realistic" balance in territory density. Mexico, for example, is a dense country. I considered putting a logo in, and flags, but decided to keep the map simple. It is a simply styled political map. I will make more artistic maps in the future, but simplicity seemed the natural style for this one.

Update 2022: flags have been added and superbonus links englarged.

The background color is terrible for the visibility of the map, stick with plain black would be a huge improvement imho.

The plain jane grey works fine since it contrasts almost every border color. But I added a little blue to give the map more life since the grey was definitely bland.
