Well, this is my first post here at these forums.  I've been working on a new map for the game for a while, and now that I've got the map done, I figured I'd share it and see what people think about it.  The map is based on the Supreme Command variant map, however I redid all the artwork to try and make it more pretty.  I also changed some territories, added the convoy zone system from A&AE and the air/naval base system from A&AP, added Italy as a full sixth player, and increased the number of victory cities to 20 total.  The map is designed to be played with the A&A:Revised rule set, though it would also work with any house rules you'd want to use.  I'm still working on sorting out the starting setup, but it will take some trial and error to get that right.  Anyways, here's a link to a reduced version of the map for anyone who wants to take a quick look...

http://img2.freeimagehosting.net/image.php?c5bea81996.jpg

If you like what you see, you can download the full, uncompressed map here...

http://rapidshare.de/files/35170728/GlobalWarMap.zip.html

The above .zip file is about 17 megabytes.  If you print the map at 100dpi, it will be about 68 inches by 32 inches in size, and the symbols and icons on it will match the size of the symbols and icons on the official A&A maps.

If anyone has any ideas for changes they think I should make to the map, let me know.  Also, if there's interest, I'll upload the Paint Shop Pro files for the map, so that anyone else who wants to can make their own edits to the map easily, since in the PSP files, the background colors, border lines, and text/symbols are in seperate layers.

I have seen your map before and let me be the first to say Bravo on such a beautiful piece of art and gamework... Although as of now I don't have the means to print such a masterpiece I would definitely do so in the future...

Keep it up!

Dude great job.  Really that is an awesome map and I plan on playing it as soon as possible.  The fact that your going to put it on the net for everyone to edit is sweet.  The only thing I would suggest is to change it so that France can be a player too.  A lot of people don't like that idea, but I think it gives the germans more options.  If you need help with anything let me know.

Thanks for the compliments.  I used Paint Shop Pro 7 to make the map.  I working on figuring out the starting setup right now and putting together some nice looking printable country cards, and hopefully I'll have it done in a few more days.  As for the big map I posted a link to before, if you downloaded it and were thinking of printing it, you might want to hold off, since I've made a few changes to the map since then.  I noticed a few typos, plus I noticed I was missing a victory city, and I made a few minor IPC value changes.

Yeah, I think 1941 is probably what I was going for.  I'm giving Germany a battleship in the Danish Sea, so it will definately be set before the Bismark was sunk, and the starting Japan setup is very similar to the Axis & Allies: Pacific setup, so it starts before Pearl Harbor.

I'd love it if you upload the files.  I'd like to create my own version (personal use only of course) thats a 1939 varient if your cool with that.  I have my own map but yours is just so much better.

Hey positronica, love your map.  Were you serious about posting your layered psp files.  I would love to work on a hex based version.  Let me know if you would be willing.  I have been working on a hand drawn version of a map from May 10th, 1940.  My dream is to play on a huge scale map.  Hope to hear from you soon.  Alternatively you can e-mail me at nunotoo@hotmail.com.
