      What about Cold-war? West and East Germany, North and South Korea, you can split the U.S.S.R into the Soviet Republics as well to prevent it from being too powerful.

      I'd like to see a map like this!
    • I'm still sticking to my Torus World (Donut World) and Polar World (North Pole World) concepts. But, I've thought about the round map...



      In order to accommodate the stretched aspect of a wildly-configured projection map (like a polar map), the outer edges (especially sea lanes) would need to allow for faster travel (to better-reflect realism). Now, that idea hasn't been implemented and I suspect the folks at Bytro might not have been able to conceive of this solution:

      I think the idea of "speed lanes" could fix this. It may be a necessary additional programming aspect of the game that would require a core programming update, but the speed of units as they move along a path could have an additional element added that would query the path that they are on (when in motion). If the path set as "normal", the speed is unaffected by the path (though it IS affected by the province (terrain, ownership) if on land). But, if the path is "speed_adjusted", then the unit's speed would be adjusted (by percentage) up or down.

      Perhaps there could be different levels of speed adjustments (i.e., adjustment multiplier "ticks" set at 0.5, 0.9, 1.3, 1.7, 2.1, 2.5 respectively) which would then be used on the current speed of the unit in transit. The varying ticks would prevent shortcuts from being sought by players trying to hug the innermost speed lanes to sneak around the outermost regular speed lanes. To keep from over-complicating things, perhaps air units (in flight) would not be affected.

      ************************************************************************************************************************************************
      In addition to the above polar and torus maps, this upper-northern projection map (posted previously, also) might be able to be gotten away with not having speed lanes, but the edges might need to be trimmed to have less ocean. This is my proposed Eurocentric Arctic World Map.




      ************************************************************************************************************************************************
      The whole point of adding these polar view (and torus) maps is to change the ocean dynamics for travel between continents. Let's have an arctic war. Let's have a Torus war (north and south map edges connect while Antarctica doesn't exist).
      It seemed like such a waste to destroy an entire battle station just to eliminate one man. But Charlie knew that it was the only way to ensure the absolute and total destruction of Quasi-duck, once and for all.

    • @Pablo22510 is right, we need a historical world map, with prop boarders and as I said a blitz verson would be great


      they are needed first, not another map of Europe, we have 4 Euro maps, that enough until we at least get the full world map.. Although I love the current style world map, I still would like a world map with actual boarders

      same here and we should have a whole aisan map where the korean war and the vietnam war and then have a europe cold war operation unthinkable map

    • I'd like to see, as many others have suggested, a cold war map with more advanced tech levels. East v West Germany.
      Many of you are thinking large maps, I hate the HUGE maps. Most of the matches on 100 or 50 maps are usually terrible.

      Another 10 player map would be awesome, preferably starting with better units and a few weeks into it allowing us to jump straight into the cold war.

      Yeah, thing is, around which continent should it be centered on?

      My polar map ideas would either be centered over north pole or else over Bytro (Germany). I'm an American and I'm totally fine with looking at a map with USA turned cockeyed to get this.

      Now, a cold war polar map would better be turned so that USA is on the bottom and USSR is upside down (all communists are upside down, if you think about it). That could also be useful in putting together a nuclear war scenario (heavy on the nukes).

      The Bytro Blitz Map would best be served as a polar-projection-ish map (the last pic from my last big post) but centered over Germany, not the north pole. I've argued that this map would not need to have "speedlanes" implemented, thus it could be an easier map to release sooner.

      A smaller USS/USSR map (i.e., 10 players) could be more focused on the pole with just USA/USSR/Europe showing and little else being close enough to the map center to show. This map might be more fun with no polar ice.

      These ideas are so awesome, that thousands of girls have been lining up outside my door just to tell me how much I've changed their lives and how they'd like me to sweep them off their feet. I just don't know what I'm going to do with all of them. :D
