Picture of US & Sea Zones together, West meets East



  • Well from what I know we still are not sure what exactly happened to the colonies here in America, and we still aren’t 100% sure that they actually made it this far, they might have just gone to Greenland and that was that.



  • Actually they really found the norse colonies ruins in america 🙂
    It’s proven, but still, the official date of america discovery is 1492, because before that it was kept “secret”.



  • @i:

    the prarie provinses should be worth 1 maybe 2ipcs
    ontario should be worth 3ipcs
    bc should be worth 1 or 2ipcs
    martime provinces should be worth 1.5ipcs
    quebec should be worth 2.5 ipcs

    Being a Canadian who knows a little something of our history, I would like to say no. Were we important? Hell yes, pilots spies, special forces and not to mention our soldiers and the navy we used to put the hurt on Germany with did loads. But as for material value, we were much lower. Yes we have lots of resources, but they were not as important as some may think. Food and supplies came from here because UK needed them, and too be honest our IPCs are mostly represented in those of the UK, as they were unable to supply most of what they needed for the war, so we shipped it over then they put it to use. THe few IPCs in Canada represent naval and army and air units we raised ourselves, which was quite impressive at over a million fighting men, was next to nothing when compared to other big powers. So my advice, my young friend, is build a minor IC in the maritimes and build detroyers out of it, and just think that there are loads of Canadians fighting, they are just in with the UK armies.

    Also, to validate my point go visit Fredericton NB, my last home before i moved to quebec and see how much it has grown in 40 years, as durring the WW2 period, very little of it existed, a few blocks aroiund city hall and some farms, it was almost all woods. This was common of Canada in the period, and durring WW2 we only had 11 million people, and only due to immigration from other nations have we reached our current population, which is still less than 10% of the US.

    As for any other country like holland, etc being powers, no, as they will just stretch resources as has been mentioned, and in reality gave little to the war in most cases or just became part of the larger war effort of their big neighbours. If you want to play small countries in WW2 get Hearts of Iron for the PC, and see how fun it is to be one of those nations next to germany.

    That is news to me, I wonder if people are still looking for Chinese ruins because there have been theories that they made it to N. America before anyone else. I honestly don’t know why we still think 1492 was the discovering of the Americas, considering that people have been on this continent for thousands of years.

    Technically 1492 is the discovery of the America from the Euro countries.

    This is the itinerary of the norsemen travels

    @Wikipedia:

    The Norse colonization of the Americas began as early as the 10th century, when Norse sailors (often referred to as Vikings) explored and settled areas of the North Atlantic, including the northeastern fringes of North America.

    @GrayBlaZe:

    Dose anyone know if Central United State was intended to boarder Alberta on the Western tip of Lake Superior?

    No, it doesn’t.

    Does New Brunswich/Nova Scotia border Quebec?

    Also, I take it that central USA only borders western and eastern USA? And east Mexico of course.



  • Mexico isn’t worth 3 now, much less back in the 1940s
