Description

In 1600 the Spanish and the Portuguese empires were forming a union called the Iberian Union that controlled uncounted colonies on 4 out of 5 habited continents. Under the rule of Philip III, at the end of the XVI century Spain was experiencing its rise.

Scale:
Note that the scale differs in different parts of the map in order to emphasize the most significant regions. These areas are separated by borders.

Historical accuracy:
1. A few provinces in East Africa and India are absent from the map to make it more comfortable and playable.
2. Some geographic and political bonuses contain the same territories (like Granada and Emirate of Granada). This is impossible for a Warzone map, thus three insignificant alterations are made (Andorra is given to the Kingdom of Navarre, Catania is given to Naples, two African provinces are given to the Emirate of Granada).

Nice historicity. Perhaps as a reflection of the farflung nature of the empires represented, the different segments of the map seem isolated and independent of each other, and moving from one corner of the map to another can be a long slow slog. I suppose that's how it was in 1600, too.

Not too small, not too big, no missing connections between neighbouring territories (albeit you should add one that would connect the Philippines with Mexico), relatively balanced bonuses. Only issues (on naming and drawing,) I have spoted are in Colombia, 1. At the time you would name it Popayán, not Cali (and by that time, you'd really have at least 4 gobernations, Antioquia to the northwest of the territory Cali comprises here) 2. Borders for Bogotá and *Popayán* are incorrectly drawn, *Popayán occupied the west of the modern country and the southeast while territories that belonged to Bogotá mostly comprised the center and mid-east of the modern country, 4. "Gobernation/Gobernacy of", should be added to Cartagena, *Popayán* and *Antioquia, 5. Bogotá should be renamed "Kingdom of New Graanda". Do forgive me these annoying corrections (surely we could do them for the whole map) which I've done as a Colombian, because anyways they don't make me think this isn't an excellent map
