If anyone missed it, the bonuses at the top are for diplomacy games that lead up to the Second World War.

This is another great giant world map and I have rated it on that basis. However, other than reflecting the political geography of 1939, it didn't really have a WWII feel. Maybe you could create a few scenarios - War of the Pacific, D-Day, North Africa, etc. - to help put the map into more context. That being said, this is still a very quality map and fun to play on.
There are a few (maybe 10 total) missing connections I encountered, but the only one I specifically recall is Grafton-Grand River in South Dakota.

Another spectacular map, perfectly made. I think that having bonuses for the full extent of the Nazi, Italian and Japanese empires would be good? in other words the height of their empires. I think that's lacking. I wouldn't worry about this but the map seems slightly off centre and the gap at the bottom is noticeable. Also no distributions, you should add some.

This map has about 20-30 missing/incorrect connections, which isn't bad for a map of this size. Other than that, It's an excellent World map, I enjoyed it much more than other big world maps out there.

Great territories, good idea, borders are smooth and match up well. However, the bar at the top is a bit ugly. In my mind, the black lines on it should be thicker, the white line under it should be black and there should be a frame around the territories as there is too much sea. I understand resizing would mean you have to redo all center points, so just put a frame around it. EDIT: Not your best map...
second edit (reply to zxctycxz): this is a review m8 XD

Well we'll see about that when the reviews start to come in. Unlike my other ones, this one was actually specifically requested by the community.

Very good world map, highly enjoyable. And yet, not quite as outstandingly good as the map maker's previous maps. I feel there were a lot of missed opportunities to make the map more like the second world war scenario it sets out to be (no Normandy - no D-Day, Stalingrad could have done with extra bonus, etc, just to float some ideas). Also the decision to mix up regional names with city names left me baffled at times. Dingwall in North Scotland? Stolp instead of Stettin? No Chongqing, only the war capital of the largest country in the world? West Africa is also a little bit of a mess - Gambia River connects to Sierra Leone though there is no obvious link, near Togo there are a three countries with missing link, and Canberra links surprisingly to Port Macquarie.
We are spoiled for fantastic world maps. Despite the criticism above, this is a wonderful addition to the world scenarios. AI is rather well-behaved so may suit beginners.

Fine map but to many missing connections!
Review by [Bajtan] picapau on 6/29/2015.
Good Design, good idea and nice options with the BigBoni... but there too many errors in the map and the boni are not well balanced (for example: there are a few 1-army-boni with only one and a few with two territorys!)
- Birnin Kebbi, Niamey and Benin from the Nigeria-Boni are not connected
- Sierra Leone is connected to Gambia River
With a little more work the map would be awesome...

A very nice map,yet there should be a way that That Empires be connected in some way,if they get connected,this would deserve 5 stars
