Thread: New Map

  1. #1

    Post New Map

    I know that this isn't technically in ww1 but this would play a big part in the war to come. The new map I purpose is a first Balkan War map. This map could also be used as a training for new players as I think it would be smaller then the 31 player map as the war itself had 5 countries in it. Because of the lack of countries in the war certain countries should be added that were around or influenced the war.

    Playable Countries I hope to be in the map:

    The Ottoman Empire

    Bulgaria

    Serbia

    Greece

    Montengro

    Rumaina

    Austria Hungry

    Russia

    Italy

    Egypt

    Germany

    Great Britain

    France(I would like them to be an AI but understand they are a big country it's just that they wouldn't fight Germany or AH if it was the Balkan wars fault)

    I'm not going to tell you all about the Balkan war because I'm not your history teacher but I will help you discover it for yourself with a link


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Balkan_War

    Please post comments and if you want make the map and post I will give my opinions on those maps

    Black(and for some reason a bit white):Austria Hungry

    Light Green:Greece

    Yellow:Italy

    Purple:Bulgaria

    Tan sort of colour:Rumania

    AI Countries:

    Blue:Serbia

    Brown:Montenegro

    I helped make up the initial concept with jake, and agree with most of what he says up there, except I wouldn't include Britain, Germany, France etc... My image is of a much smaller map centered on the Balkans AFTER the first balkan war, but before the second. It's more balanced that way, and the Ottoman Empire doesn't start bordering with EVERY nation.

    Playable nations: Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Greece, Ottoman Empire,
    With montenegro, Albania as AI's, as well as the southernmost bit of AH, and parts of Italy (along the maps border, so the whole nation isn't visible... You could potentially also have a Russian AI in there as well. Southern AH could be made into a playable nation if necessary.
    Being a much smaller map than the 10 or 8 player ones, it allows for a much different experience, with plenty of potential for land and naval battles both.



    As the image shows, pre-Balkan war the Ottoman Empire dominates the map, but would get ganged and eaten immediately... Post-war, the map is much more balanced.

    Also, I would envision the maps borders being slightly further out in all directions than that images, but it gives the basic picture.

    Sweden: 22'000 dead (me)
    North USA: 3.68 million dead

    I added Germany France and GB because two of those nations have major interest in the Balkans and France is in the middle

    Russia and AH should be playable they had lots of influence and were very interested in this war

    I'm very much in favour of a smaller map. We got enough of big maps, and quite frankly I don't think they're that enjoyable. The Balkan war is on top of that a very interesting scenario to have. My suggestion is to have it as a six player map, where Italy, Austria-Hungary, The Ottomans, Bulgaria, Rumania and Greece were playable. Russia, Monte-Negro, Albania and Serbia would be AI, which would give all players a relatively balanced possibility to expand into AI countries.

    A quick map to demonstrate what I'm trying to explain:
