- Historical neutral countries will not have territories --> more memory for more important provinces
- European provinces: * 2 income
- Asian, North African and South African provinces: * 1,5 income
- Central African, Siberian without railroads, Australian and Oceanic provinces: * 1 income
- bonuses based on actual control, not de-jure
- mountain ranges to divide the combatants

Is there another map this is based on? What original values are being multiplied by 2/1.5?

Yeah, should be Somme, the bloodiest battle in the First World War.

No but i dont see a point in making any place its own map,i personally think it ruins the quality for roleplay and regular games,just make a good overall map

No. I just use a guideline from https://www.warlight.net/Profile?p=866669992 to create my bonuses.

@apollong3
Thank you! ^^

@Съмрьть
I will add the northern tip of Australia. I hope that the Philippines are enough to represent the US, but i will consider it if i find enough space in the Indian Ocean.

@Жұқтыру
I'll think about it. Verdun has the advantage of being a huge fortress and therefore actually a reason to be quite important to get a bonus of its own.

i think that having city bonuses for London, Berlin, Paris, Vienna etc. would really bring in the whole "trench warfare" feel that ww1 was, since the war majorly wasnt near any cities and capturing a city would be essentially valuable to the country's war effort.

In my opinion,cities having their own maps make a map worse for 2 main reasons:

1.It is inconvenient and harder to estimate the power(income) of players just by looking at the map,and cities are often ignored,which I do not like and makes scenario making harder.

2.I just personally don't like city maps.

I need some help with the African Colonies, especially the French and Belgian ones. What territory was formally and what de facto under European control?

i also think you should add the east coast of usa, canada, brazil and argentina. they were growing into relatively strong powers during this timeframe and could make politics in games more enjoyable

Looks cool. But I think you should remain with the idea here, no need to add countries like brazil or argentina, that's overcomplicating things. And adding the US unbalances the games for the entente since the country just joined late in the war and didn't have much influence in the outcome of it anyways.

I think to simulate the USA and how it entered late you should have a line of territories from France/UK that you take and then finally get to a big bonus. But make every territory worth 1 or 0 so the creator can decide how long he wants it to be until aid is achieved.

Cool concept, I dont like how blocky and awkward the territories are though. Good luck!

I decided to not include any mini-maps, considering that neither Marne, nor Verdun or Somme were the most bloody operation in the war, but the Brusilov Offensive instead.

I would suggest renaming Argos to Peloponnese and Nicosia to Cyprus,as they better represent the entirety of the places

I know, but like in the WW2 map already published, i would like to name every territory after cities whenever possible.

though not big in the war, siam/thailand was indeed a combatant of ww1 and shouldnt be kept neutral. maybe give them smaller bonuses to balance out, but they shouldnt be entirely neutral
