    https://www.mediafire.com/?8p56rdb6cpwvn3v  ( this is updated map file)

    Need help on the colors… Ottomans, UK, Italy, and possibly Aus- Hun.

    Also, if the font does not look exactly like AA1914 let me know, i can include the font file.

    lastly, look for text or map errors if you can. Check the neutral flags. i had to research what was during this period and the OOB is wrong in some cases. Then again i could be wrong.



  • hhm, the link works but after it completely loads nothing happens, above the load bar it just says “retry”. I downloaded it and it worked fine though 😄



  • The Dutch flag should be without the crown in it. I used Illustrator the view the file and noticted that allot of territorty names are double font. In white en transparant black or something a like. In seazone 12 the blue color of the lines are different and between seazone 19 and 20 the lines are not of the same shapes.

    On the Dutch, the OOB map has it so in these cases i just found the same flag, but in some cases they fabricated a flag from thin air. In these cases, i inserted the correct flag.  I will look into the double font thing and changed color lines.

    If you find any misspelled words let me know.

    Same for me, in both Firefox and IE. I was able to download the file with the down-arrow button in the top-right area.



  • Imperious Leader, I love your maps, but ……
    A) I would much rather have a traditional rectangle map instead of the tilted one. I see the original 1914 map “under” yours so I don’t know starting over is even possible.
    B) I don’t like production chart and mobilization zone in the Sahara dessert.  Would it be possible to at least make these two things a layer that can be toggled on/off?

    1. The Russian and Italian territories are the same color or too close to the same.
    2. I really like that there aren’t any background images cluttering up the map. I find those very distracting and unnecessary during play.

    Other than that it’s great!

    LOL. Funny you say that. Alot of people praise how i do this on my maps, but oh well.

    I don’t like production chart and mobilization zone in the Sahara dessert.  Would it be possible to at least make these two things a layer that can be toggled on/off?

    Im working on a solution so the look will be different. At worst case i can send you a version w/o that…just for you.

    Let me get it final first.



  • Awesome Imperious Leader. Do you use Photoshop to create your maps?  I just completed a monster global map in Photoshop, that I’m looking for a home for, and many of the objects are layers so they can easily be toggled on/off.

    I’m surprised most folks like the backdrop images. They certainly look cool but during play I find they get in the way and wished they were gone. I’m looking forward to your v3 map, that seems like the one I’ll have printed out. We still use one of your AA50 maps that I printed out.

    I use illustrator CS3



  • Looking forwad to your map, bought the game and would love a better map!  I tired your links, it loads then doesnt show anything and asks to retry?  Is that on my end?  Tried IE9 and Firefox.

    thanks for any help!

    I think you need to sign up. The down loader is sometimes finicky, try again latter and if don’t work again let me know. I have about 60,000 downloads of my work on mediafire, and they didn’t have issues

    Also you need to have current adobe reader installed

    You don’t need to sign in, you just have to press an additional button at the upper right corner (see graphic below). Both the left and right button as well will lead you to another desktop, where you can download the file.

  • Thanks!  Downloaded it… wow very nice work!!  Can’t wait till your done!!!

    Ok this is the final for phase 1 map.

    see first post in this thread for final map

    Great Map! Whereas I don’t know the game and the OOB map here is some input:

    No shaded borders:

    • Austria
    • Ottoman empire
    • Spanish Marocco
    • All german colonies in Africa
    • Somaliland
    • Ethiopia
    • Holland
    • Norway
    • Sweden
    • Denmark (double border)
    • Greece
    • Bulgaria
    • Persia
    • Afghanistan

    Border shading pattern switching:

    • Alsace: not consistent with other german countries
    • Belarus: not consistent with other russian countries

    Border missing:

    • Canada (Right beneath country name ‘Canada’)
    • Ireland (right of the country token)

    Typos:
    Marselles - Marseilles
    Afganistan - Afghanistan

    "Wondering":

    • German East Africa - some blue brushes (lakes?)
    • Why are there sometimes countries with town names (e.g. Kiel, Hannover, Munich) and sometimes countries with their correct names (Prussia, Silesia)?
    • Kiel/Hannover: very strange locating and naming; Kiel is the capital of Schleswig-Holstein, the northernmost state of Germany. Whereas Schleswig-Holstein lies between the North Sea and the
       Baltic Sea, Kiel is located at the coast of the Baltic Sea. Hannover is the capital of Lower Saxony, another northern state of Germany, in fact located where the map shows the area of ‘Kiel’.
    • There is a country without a name (between  Transjordan and Egypt)

    You realize this is a reproduction of OOB map right?

    The lakes are on that map, name changes are not.

    The other items will be looked into, thanks

    Yes, I realized it, nonetheless I’m wondering (…about the OOB map concerning the mentioned cases).

    Here is an updated file.

    The shaded border thing are not meant to be consistent for all nations. The small space between Egypt and TJ is part of Egypt, which is why it has no name.

    Pattern Switching thing: i checked and the texture and color is the same. I have no idea why it looks different, but it looks the same on my file.

    Typo’s fixed



  • WOW… looks great!  I think Sea Zone 15 needs a Mine Icon?  By the way the idea of showing those mines is a superb! When we played we forgot about mines, this will remind us!  And this is a side question… since there is no anchor in India, I take it no navy can be built there?


  • 2017 2016 2015 Organizer '14 Customizer '13 '12 '11 '10

    I will check into those items. Thanks

    Ok i think this is it. I added a FEW artsy pictures, corrected sea mine in #15, changed the colors so they look great together ( not happy with Ottomans and AH)



  • Again…. superb work! I’d like to print this out about 25% larger than the regualr map, I think that would be big enough so things were not so tight duirng some of the game play! Looks like its ready to go! Are you getting rid of the text and prod. chart in the middle, I saw others commented on that.  Weve played twice now and none of us use it.  I’ll tell you what should be on there… a turn order on on side to match the cost chart on the other… wouldnt need the book at all then… Both could be larger so people could se from any angle.  Unless you want to add any territories that saw fighting in that region, I’m no expert on that though!


  • 2017 2016 2015 Organizer '14 Customizer '13 '12 '11 '10

    It is 50 x 48 and the OOB is 32 x 32.5

    If you want a special version just PM me if you are sure about the changes.

    Here is the version without the 1-99 IPC chart. Instead we have turn order and sequence.



  • Oh no, the dreaded background images are back.    😉

    Any chance you can create a pdf with layers for these background images so they can be toggled on/off? I’d like to print this map out but not with background images please.
