People are bugging me for months on this. Personally, i have never played it but own 3 copies. All i know is this is the one with the nifty AA guns in player colors...but no Italy

Does this need a 60 x45 map? What is the OOB map size?

Absolutely! In fact I wont get rid of my AA1942 Supreme map until you do. My group is just too used to playing on these nicer and larger maps. I like not having seams too.

Just my opinion though, the OOB map size is 40" x 26" so a 45" width might be a bit big. It's too wide for a pool table and won't fit in a standard 36" mailer tube for storage. The 64" x 34" of your AA42 Supreme map was just the right size IMO. It could be placed on a pool table or a 4x8 with just enough room around the periphery for trays and drinks. Might save you some time to just modify the original AA1942 supreme.

Love your maps and look forward any new edition.

the OOB map size is 40" x 26"

a 50% upgrade in size would make it 60 x 39

The 64" x 34" of your AA42 Supreme map was just the right size

To keep the same perspective the ratio of size must be kept. Is 60 x 39 big enough or go more than 50% larger?

Need more support for this. Not making it unless many people want it. It takes many hours to do this and i wouldn't even print out my own copy, so this would be a utilitarian gift.

I'd be very interested in this. Though, as this would be my first giant map, can anyone tell me the best way to print it out for use? undecided

AAA flag and banner. All done via internet. They mail in a tube and no gimmicks

I just need more than say 30 people to say "make this"

100+ hours of my time won't go wasted then.  Also, to motivate me get me a great scan of the 2nd edition map so i can trace it.

I would also like to print it.

To whom it may concern: I know a manufacturer in germany, printing those maps in a high quality (blockout banner, 720 dpi eco solvent print) for low costs (e.g. for AA1942 first edition 162cm x 86cm, 42 Euros plus 22 Euros for shipping).
