Description

A map of the Middle East, expanded to include Libya and the Caucasus, commissioned by Napoleon Bonaparte.

v1.2: Added oil bonuses that are set to zero by default; they can be changed for diplo games. Each bonus's name starts with OIL and contains a suggested value in parentheses if the value is not 1.

Thanks to Murk, joeydavis761, and Nikitan for help with testing. Thanks to ɠanyɱedes and dorex time for pointing out improvements.

A note on superbonuses: They have been fine-tuned so that together with the bonuses within them the player ends up getting a 0.7-0.75 armies to territories income ratio.

Review by King of noobs IV. on 1/20/2021.
Awesome. Bad connections: South Sinai-Arava works only in direction and Kufra-Tobruk shouldn t be there.
Edit: Checked South Sinai again and it works. I was mistaken by minimap and big map crossing.

Thanks for spotting Kufra-Tobruk, I'll fix it in the next version. I don't understand what you mean about South Sinai-Arava, though. Could you elaborate by editing the comment or PM me with a more detailed description of the problem?
Edit: Thanks for checking again!

Some of the bonuses didn't make sense and the scaling was weird. Claiming Israel is difficult and placement is weird.

This comment made me realize that I should add a note on how superbonuses work, like I did in my Greece Big map. They have been fine-tuned so that together with the bonuses within them the player ends up getting a 0.7-0.75 armies to territories income ratio. That's why countries that already give a lot of armies compared to their number of territories may have smaller superbonus incomes than other countries with different bonus distributions.
