Maps are great... I will be printing one soon... aside from the size difference and the double/triple border between territories, I see the "5th" file differs by having the Mobilization box in the South Pacific (bottom right of map), while the other four have the Mobilization box in the South Atlantic.

1941 OOB map defaults to a Mobilization box in the South Atlantic while 1942SE OOB map defaults with the Mobilization box in the South Pacific... after reading this thread, its clear the first four files were made with it in the South Atlantic, and the 5th map, with it in the South Pacific was made per request to put it back in the OOB position.

Aside from personal preference I guess... is there any rime or reason one is better than the other?  Or is it really just a personal preference thing.  Even OOB maps have it in both places (1941 vs 1942).

Just as a public service, I am having the 1942 SE Supreme map (1625x863mm, shrunk down a slight bit to 57x30" so it can fit on my intended playing surface) printed at my local Fed-Ex Office print shop on outdoor banner vinyl.  It's costing me about $90 (US dollars) to have this done (might be a few bucks more than it otherwise would have been because I had it resized).  I know not everyone will get the same prices or print the same size, but that's just to give a ball park figure in 2016 dollars of what a typical big box print shop will charge for such a project.  Kudos to Dedo for making this available to the A&A community! Here's my results:

In this case it was just a special, personal wish of one of the users to deploy the mob zone at another place on the map. Was no problem to me to shift the mob zone (it is only "one" object to be shifted apart). If you are going to work with a graphical software like Corel Draw/Paint, it is easy to convert the actual pdf file into a vector graphics file, where you can change all these things. The maps were originally developed with Corel.

Sorry for the late answer, was on travel for some days. Thank you for your kudos! And, of cause have fun playing the map!

Great map... oddly enough, the 1941 has the zone in the South Atlantic and the 1942 map has it in the South Pacific.  I see no clear benefit for it to be in either location over the other, so out of confusion, I just used your map of it in the South Pacific cuz it matched the OOB map of 1942 the closest... no other reason.

A professionally printed map is the way to go - we'll never go back!

I would prefer to put this map thread back into the 1942-2e board. A map thread is more important in the related board, as people looking for maps firstly search in the corresponding board.

If the person in charge for the map thread movement can't agree on this (for whatever reasons), I would suggest, the map thread from the 1941 board should be moved to the customization board too to avoid confusions.

I will try to move this topic for you when I get home this weekend, it's not letting me do it from my phone for some reason.

Hello all

I'm very interested in getting this map. However, the map is very grainy and hard to read on my computer screen ( all variations ). I'm worried that when I submit this to a printing service, it will return looking the same way. I see pics of the map successfully printed and it looks great. Any tips to ensure I get a quality map?

Thanks

Hello and welcome to the forums... I hate to say "maybe its you"... but, well "maybe its you"... I say that with all due respect... as someone who did print this very same map, I had no problems and walked away with a very nice map.

My best advice, to rule out some issue on your end, try taking the map file to your local print shop and BEFORE plunking down the money to have it printed, have them pull up the file on THEIR system and show you and/or tell you how it would look coming out on their end.

Maybe your monitor is a tad fuzzy?  Having said all that, like I said earlier... I printed these maps and had great results.

I'm in a bit of a jam. I submitted this to FedEx and was supposed to pick it up today. Unfortunately when I arrived I was informed that they could not print it due to copy right issues. Anyone else have this problem? Or better yet a solution? I assume all I need is for it not to say Axis & Allies anywhere. I'm on the phone with them now trying to sweet talk and BS them into printing it...I'm not getting anywhere, however.
