@Imperious: I`m not in on the scanning thing, but I tend to give an order to a copy shop to scan the map. Afterwards I would load the file up or, if possible, send it to you. Are there any recommendations concerning file format or size or scanning parameters?

Well if you do it i can guarantee that i make a map from it.

The scan or picture must be head on, no angles just drop down view and good lighting. For a poor example, check out Djensens picture of 42.2 from this site. A good example would be his picture of 1914. I drew my map from it.

Do it and you guys got the map. I can try to finish before Christmas.

@ imperious: right now I'm searching for a scan/copy shop, able to scan an unflexible paperboard in a size of DIN A0. Till now, I found only one shop in Hamburg, unfortunately, they can print the map at the earliest on January, 6th. So, it looks like that we won't receive an additional christmas gift (sad).The format of the scan file will be "*.TIFF", resolution 300dpi - would this fit the requirements for you?

yes that works, but you know if you scanned the map as a PDF or PNG you would do much better.

Do I understand this correctly - a PDF- or a PNG-file would work better as a TIFF-file? Or do you mean, if I scanned in PDF or PNG I would need a higher resolution as 300 dpi?

TIFF is like JPEG, which this format causes image to pixelate. PDF or PNG not. No TIFF file- instead PDF or PNG

IL:  Yes, please make this map.  My friends and I get together every week to play using your AA42 Supreme Map.  We are forever indebted to your work on that.  The large printed map is amazing!  We want to buy this version of the game, but we don't want to go back to playing on a small game board.  If you can make this, that would change everything Smiley

IL:  Thanks for the 1st edition supreme map.  I have some muscle control issues and the larger map is just more fun.  Is the work on the 2nd edition larger map really happening.  It will be well used and loved, if so!

I would love to have it.  I actually have one question though:  how would I go about dropping out the blue of the oceans?  In other words I want to make a transparency version where the blue of the ocean is clear and all that is there are the borders between sea zones.  I am wanting to actually build a table for a game room with the map actually adhered to the table and finished over with an extra thick clear coat finish.  So the ocean territories would simply be beautiful stained wood in the background.  Any ideas?  Would you just erase the blue and make it white?  I am not to pc savvy.  Thanks for any help!
