Is there anyone else who thinks the British Isles map on here is small and boring, I suggest a new one should be made, however I've tried my hand at map building and I'm awful. So if there is anyone who can build maps and is willing to make this idea into a map then I'd be grateful and we would have a wonderful new map for everyone to enjoy. The way I see it, it should use Boroughs as territories, counties for bonuses and countries for large bonuses. Thanks for anyone who is willing to help build this map or simply agree it would be a good idea.
The shape of Britain is a bit shitty for a decent map. You have the appendages of Cornwall and Scotland which are awkward to get to. With the maps moros picked out, there is also the problem that some are much larger than others, which results in an unbalanced map.
The best idea would be one of just England and Wales, but that would result in the sort of non-descript blob that is usually the product of a real-world map. Otherwise, you could try to incorporate mountains and larger rivers as barriers. I think I'll try that one day.
I am working on a map of Scotland, which could go ok, since the geography is a little more interesting, with the islands. The bonuses will be what is shown by moros in his map, and the territories will be drawn by hand and named after towns and cities.
Those maps don't include further denominations of the counties. There are a good few hundred boroughs/parishes/districts that make up England alone and a good few in each county. So the unbalanced issue is easily resolved.
