    It would be nice, if someone have checked the map concerning the topology.


  • 2018 2017 2016

    Some corrections:

    • some neutral borders corrected
    • some IPC values corrected

    New version:

  • Awesome!! Thats exactly what I am searching for at the moment! (I bought A&A41 yesterday)

    Imo you only need to correct the IPC-chart and make US worth 17 IPC.

    Maybe you could take a look at my paint-map of A&A 1914. I am really happy with the tts but it would look much cooler with geographical terrain effects like yours or the ones of Imperious Leader…

    http://www.mediafire.com/view/0ya2c08a5c4xjpr/1941-v10.pdf

    size: 1625mm x 863mm (a second map in a smaller size will be finalized, when all errors are fixed)



  • Hi,
    I just wanted to get some news about the final version of this map. A big thank you for the huge work already done  🙂


  • 2018 2017 2016

    Out of sight, out of mind.  
    So far, I didn’t receive any additional feedback or comments on errors concerning the map, all known errors are already fixed in version 10. Nevertheless, I will do a final check on the weekend and then release the final version.



  • Thanks a lot for the fast reply, much appreciated. And for your excellent work  🙂
    @dedo:

    size: 1625mm x 863mm (a second map in a smaller size will be finalized, when all errors are fixed)

    What will be the final size please ?
    Can’t wait for the final version !  :lol:


  • 2018 2017 2016

    What will be the final size please

    Make a suggestion, what size would you like to have (mm x mm)? Please bear in mind, that another size of the map should keep the proportionality of lenght and width of the actual map.



  • The actual size is size: 1625mm x 863mm; i think 1500 mm x ? mm (don’t know how to calculate) would be great, keeping the proportionality.


  • 2018 2017 2016

    1500mm? Hm, there is hardly a difference in comparison to the 1625mm x 863mm size. What do you think of roundabout 1200mm x 600mm? This is far more than the OOB size (830mm x 450mm), provides a lot of space for the (few…) units and would fit a normal table size (width/depth 60 cm).


  • 2018 2017 2016

    For a 600mm width, the length would be 1129mm.
    For a 700mm width, the length would be 1317mm.


  • 2018 2017 2016

    Three sizes will be uploaded:
    600mm width, length 1129mm.
    700mm width, length 1317mm.
    863mm width, length 1625mm.


  • 2018 2017 2016

    Final map 1941, size 600mm x 1229mm (ca, 50 MB).

    I STRONGLY RECOMMEND TO CHECK THE MAP PRIOR PRINTING!

  • Thanks a lot. I know this is a hard work and i think people could at least say a little “thanks” that costs nothing.
    I’m gonna check the maps next week (actually i can just go on the internet in the week-ends for a fex weeks, but not during the week) and see what version i will print.
    Thanks, again. Really. You rule !!  🙂

    Please will you tell me , if you are satisfied concerning the size. If the larger map is too small for you, I will prepare a larger one for you.

    …and thank you for the feedback, nice to know, that there are people outside, who realise what a lot of work a map is to do.



  • Doesn’t work for me _ I’ve tried several different versions and it just downloads a blank page every time

    try the following:

    1. click on the link, mediafire starts a download
    2. interrupt the download by clicking on the upper right button with the caption “download” (see graphic below)
    3. a window opens with specifications for the download (see second graphic below)
    4. click on download.

  • Tried that too: it appears to download successfully but when I open it all I get is a white page :?


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

    damm it .

    save the file to desktop and open it from there. Stop trying to view the file from the site, that will never work



  • Got it.  The 30mb file is too big for Foxit reader to handle - that was the problem 😛

    I understand, i never played 1941 yet, because i always want a larger map (hate to use the plastic chips, i bought two copies of 1942 V1 which is cheap to have more tanks an infantry)
    But maybe you’re right, perhaps 1941 uses a lot less minis so the 600 ou 700 size could be a good idea. I just hope i will have enough room on the map not to use the plastic grey/green/red chips.
    Just tell me what you think about it please.  😉


  • 2018 2017 2016

    If the focus is to play without chips, then any map will be too small given a stack in England. Any other territory should work with the utmost probability but I must admit, I never played the supersized maps for 1941. After all, you’ve got less units, less seazones and less territories in comparison to 1942 but the same map size. This means, that any seazone or territory is much bigger on average than in 1942. Your special concern, not to play with chips, may thwart the idea to use a smaller map.



  • Ok Dedo, i spent some time checking the 1941 and 1942 2ed maps. I will reply in the right section for 1942 2ed.
    So, what i noticed concerning the 1941 map :

    • The most schocking is the german insigna : there is some red missing up and down which gives them a weird/unifinished look. (and under the title of the game too)
    • East Mexico, not East Mexiko, and Mexico, not Mexiko
    • “Panama Canal” and “Suez Canal” are missing
    • The starting IPC for the US is 17 and 15 on the original map (there may be an errata, i di not check)
    • The original map says Washington D.C. instead of Washington
    • There is a missing slash between Normay and Finland.
    • speaking about the slashes (ex : Span/portugal), i thonk they are too thin.
    • The drawing on Sea zone 43 & 44 has a problem of transparency if you look closely (the other drawings do not have this problem)
    • Sea zone 39 : this is written Wake instead of Wake Island
    • The japanese insigna for Okinawa soudn’t be on sea zone 45 but in sea zone 38 (that can lead to a confusion)
    • On the mobiization zone, “UNIT STATS” is missing if compared with the original. Stas are ok, even not given in the same order (i personnally prefer yours)
    • I hope there will be a double border version on this one, i’m not a fan of triple borders  😉

    Hope that helps

    Phil

    I won’t have accesss to the internet until friday.
