Thanks a lot. I know this is a hard work and i think people could at least say a little "thanks" that costs nothing.
I'm gonna check the maps next week (actually i can just go on the internet in the week-ends for a fex weeks, but not during the week) and see what version i will print.
Thanks, again. Really. You rule !!  smiley

Please will you tell me , if you are satisfied concerning the size. If the larger map is too small for you, I will prepare a larger one for you.

...and thank you for the feedback, nice to know, that there are people outside, who realise what a lot of work a map is to do.

try the following:

1. click on the link, mediafire starts a download
2. interrupt the download by clicking on the upper right button with the caption "download" (see graphic below)
3. a window opens with specifications for the download (see second graphic below)
4. click on download.

Got it.  The 30mb file is too big for Foxit reader to handle - that was the problem tongue

1500mm? Hm, there is hardly a difference in comparison to the 1625mm x 863mm size. What do you think of roundabout 1200mm x 600mm? This is far more than the OOB size (830mm x 450mm), provides a lot of space for the (few...) units and would fit a normal table size (width/depth 60 cm).   

I understand, i never played 1941 yet, because i always want a larger map (hate to use the plastic chips, i bought two copies of 1942 V1 which is cheap to have more tanks an infantry)
But maybe you're right, perhaps 1941 uses a lot less minis so the 600 ou 700 size could be a good idea. I just hope i will have enough room on the map not to use the plastic grey/green/red chips.
Just tell me what you think about it please.  wink

If the focus is to play without chips, then any map will be too small given a stack in England. Any other territory should work with the utmost probability but I must admit, I never played the supersized maps for 1941. After all, you've got less units, less seazones and less territories in comparison to 1942 but the same map size. This means, that any seazone or territory is much bigger on average than in 1942. Your special concern, not to play with chips, may thwart the idea to use a smaller map.

Ok Dedo, i spent some time checking the 1941 and 1942 2ed maps. I will reply in the right section for 1942 2ed.
So, what i noticed concerning the 1941 map :

- The most schocking is the german insigna : there is some red missing up and down which gives them a weird/unifinished look. (and under the title of the game too)
- East Mexico, not East Mexiko, and Mexico, not Mexiko
- "Panama Canal" and "Suez Canal" are missing
- The starting IPC for the US is 17 and 15 on the original map (there may be an errata, i di not check)
- The original map says Washington D.C. instead of Washington
- There is a missing slash between Normay and Finland.
- speaking about the slashes (ex : Span/portugal), i thonk they are too thin.
- The drawing on Sea zone 43 & 44 has a problem of transparency if you look closely (the other drawings do not have this problem)
- Sea zone 39 : this is written Wake instead of Wake Island
- The japanese insigna for Okinawa soudn't be on sea zone 45 but in sea zone 38 (that can lead to a confusion)
- On the mobiization zone, "UNIT STATS" is missing if compared with the original. Stas are ok, even not given in the same order (i personnally prefer yours)
- I hope there will be a double border version on this one, i'm not a fan of triple borders  wink

Hope that helps

Phil

I won't have accesss to the internet until friday.

Thank you very much for your time spent on the maps! In the course of this evening I have a date, so I can't work long on the map.

When I take a look at the pdf at 100% or 200% I can't see any difference, the symbols are all the same. Can you make a snapshot? I assume, that some of your (wide?) screen solutions aren't matching.

Quote
East Mexico, not East Mexiko, and Mexico, not Mexiko
Fixed, my fault, german spelling....

Quote
"Panama Canal" and "Suez Canal" are missing
Fixed. At first I resigned these due to space on the map.

Quote

Mistake in OOB, already fixed by author. Correct IPC count is 17.

Quote
The original map says Washington D.C. instead of Washington
Fixed, ...eagle eyes.

Quote
There is a missing slash between Normay and Finland.
Looks awful, voluntarily omitted.

Quote

Fixed.

Quote

Hmm, depends on the background of the graphic, has to be whited out more...needs some tries, I assume.

Quote
Sea zone 39 : this is written Wake instead of Wake Island
Fixed.

Quote
The japanese insigna for Okinawa shouldn't be on sea zone 45 but in sea zone 38 (that can lead to a confusion)
Fixed.

Quote
On the mobiization zone, "UNIT STATS" is missing if compared with the original. Stats are ok, even not given in the same order (i personnally prefer yours)
The mob zone is completely designed by myself as the IPC chart is. Due to asthetic reasons I omitted "unit stats".

Quote

There is going to be a double border version, at least as a reinforcement for your engagement.

I will upload new maps as soon as there is a clarification of the "german-insignia-thing".

For the german insigna, i will upload a snapshot. I won't be out without internet like the last three weeks, so i will be able to reply faster  smiley
