Diplomacy World Huge , orginally intented 'Penguins', is my 16th published map.

Especially created for the ones who want it huge. The map is based on World Nations 2012 by {rp} pedrito.

Date map started: 4/4/2014
Date map published: 9/5/2016

Every territory has approximately the same size and represents either cities or regions. Each single territory is rewarded with a single bonus that can range from 1 to 30. The casual bonus boxes cannot be seen however but they're represented with a shaped number within the territories instead. Because of this it is adviced not to change bonus values as it would confuse players and give an unfair advantage towards others. Note that you always should read the settings before you join a game as you might end up getting tricked.

As a substitute only the zero-valued bonusses on the map are specifically made to be altered. If you're a custom scenario maker please use these instead.Thank you

Special credits go to all the people that helped me on the map-development forum.

There's a ginormous amount of effort that has gone into this map. I appreciate almost every bit of it, but I can't get over the fact that Scotland as a whole is worth less than almost all the African countries. Like, what? Scotland is fantastic! Alba gu bràth!
Response by map creator Belgian Gentleman on 9/5/2016
Indeed Scotland is fantastic but just not relevant enough

All black isn't my cup of tea, but whatever. Anyways, here are some connection things I noticed.

Missing connections
Boa Vista - Amazonas (Venezuela)
Pursat - Chonburi (Cambodia)

Missing Sea Connection Lines
Baffin Island - Bylot Island
Prince Of Wales and Somerset Island - Elizabeth Islands

Thanks for your review. I heard a lot of people saying the same about my usage of the color black but I consider that to be necessary as those colorful numbers within the territories should be noticable from view.

Thanks again for your help with remarking some of the missing connections. I'll fix them soon. But on the missing sea connection lines however, I think you are wrong. These two examples you mentioned are already present on the map.

Review by Gen. NumbNuts on 9/6/2016.
Firstly, I would like to say I really enjoy the size of this map and shall enjoy many games on it. The Poland Ball humor is amusing and adds some decent artwork.

Really not a fan of how the casual bonuses are executed. Concept is interesting as well as space saving(The main reason you've done it no doubt) however they are rather small and kind of annoying. Editing the individual bonuses will prove confusing as you have mentioned.

If I had to change anything I would have added more color as well as change how the casual bonuses were executed. But overall a nice map.
Response by map creator Belgian Gentleman on 9/6/2016
Thank you for the compliment but the claim that the concept is space saving is absolutely false though. This map , big in bonusses can't provide a a minimal sized bonus box for all of its 2717 bonusses. It is impractable since space is limited. An alternative has already been made a year ago by resizing the bonusses below the size limit but it got quickly rejected by Fizzer because of bugs on the mobile app. After being followed by a series of drama on the map-development forum I could think of only one solace and that was to put the numbers in rectangles within territories and,... it turned out to be pretty good actually. I see you're in favor of adding more colours on the map as well, perhaps you'd love the old version of the map which had this until I shifted to black-only because things would look a lot more professional.

Review by Bane on 9/6/2016.
The numbers representing the bonuses are inconsistent. Sometimes they're in a hexagon next to an island or edge, and sometimes they're just floating off in the ether nearby.
Having every territory have its own bonus is fine (obviously meant for a diplo) but the super bonus are hard to cipher. It's shocking that you wouldn't make the borders for these colored. All black is a huge waste, and makes the look monotonous. Speaking of borders, having clean borders is important (although it becomes pointless when said borders are all the same color,) and the borders overlap each other.
Over all it's an ok diplo map. It's large, which goes in it's favor, but doesn't do anything special. No new or interesting way to add to the diplo experience. It looks like it just wants to be 'THE' diplo map, which is fine, but it sits in a pool of similar diplo maps vying for that title

EDIT: regardless if it's on 'every diplomacy map' doesn't mean its smart. If saving space was vital, then the ball characters could easily be axed
Response by map creator Belgian Gentleman on 9/6/2016
Those numbers you speak of act like normal bonusses like any other. The only difference there is, is that they are unclickable and specifically non-designed to be altered. Where they are to be placed is rather simple. A territory on the mainland will get a rectangle and inside it a number, and island territories will most likely have a number somewhere located next to it without any rectangular shape.

After all the clear borders countries and regions have is just merely a design. It wasn't meant to be specifally colored in red,green,pink,blue or whatever. It is a matter of taste however whether you like various different colors on the map or not. But as for me I opted for having one single color only on the landmass because I thought it would make my map look more professional and more suited for diplomacy purposes. This black-pattern can be found on almost every other diplomacy map by the way. Besides the aesthetics fills up the space a bit and only takes up 58kb of the svg which is almost nothing.

Normally I Love large maps, but there was just too much wrong. First Needed connections: Xining
Response by map creator Belgian Gentleman on 9/30/2016
thank you. The connection between Lanzhou and Xining has been restored. Besides if there any more issues I can fix please care to explain them to me via a private message.

This is finally published. Glad to finally have a detailed map of Australia in a world diplomacy map.

Review by Zephyrum on 9/8/2016.
4/5, perfect size, good distributions... bonuses being invisible basically destroys scenariomaking in this map, though. :(

EDIT: Scratch that, 5/5. Do full distribution local deployment 3 mins autoboot real-time games on this beauty. Autopilot every turn. Use the setting that blocks members from joining. Free points, period. :D
