Suggestion: Territorial Additions And Changes (G40)
The majority of this is a compilation of territory additions to Global 1940, mostly islands.
Please use the map with British Columbia, the Yukon Territory and Sea Zone 128 in the Caspian Sea.
In terms of customisations, I’d use the Indian Air Force Markers only for territories that were a part of British Raj. The rest of U.K. Pacific’s territories would have the Royal Air Force Marker. I like the Italian roundel (even though it and the Indian Air Force marker are both innacurate). I’d also give South and South-west Africa their air force markers of the time because they were independent by that time. I’m also not a fan of painting Mozambique and Angola as independent when they weren’t.
There are other territories that I’d change the markers of. Including: Mexico, South-east Mexico, Central America (there are six countries there, but the U.S. controlled the Panama Canal Zone, therefore their marker will be on Central America as well), West Indies (and all that I split it into), Greenland (Danish), Iceland (Danish), the Low Countries, Denmark, Norway, Vyborg (Finnish), Baltic States, Eastern Poland, Poland, Bessarabia (Romanian), Slovakia–Hungary, Romania, Albania, Greater Southern Germany (German, Austrian and Czech), Abyssinia/Ethiopia and the Belgian Congo. Said territories will still remain as though they’re originally controlled. In this context, even though they aren’t originally owned by these nations they are the playable nation who originally controlled them, meaning one can still place a major complex if said territory(s) is worth three or above. Said air force symbols are purely symbolic and are present for emmersion.
With such territorial additions here, I’d change one aspect of the British Atlantic national objective, being that any territories outside of Britain proper excluding Scotland will not be counted because it’d be too easy for Germany to just take a random island and make things much harder for Britain.

You can split the U.S.A. like this:
North-east United States: worth thirteen and has the facilities and complex.
South-east United States: worth five.
Florida: worth two.
Central United States: Worth six.
Texas: Worth six and has the complex.
I wouldn’t mind making Portugal worth two, Spain worth three, Switzerland worth one, Kazakhstan worth two and Turkey worth three. I’ve also considered adding Tibet, worth one, pro-Allied with one infantry, around Yuunan.
I was thinking about splitting Japan, which I went into on the list. However, along with that I had another idea. That being, making Thailand (Siam) a pro-Axis neutral. But, to make up for the loss of one IPC, I’d divide the income of Japan like this when splitting it up: Honshu (worth three and has the facilities and complex), Kyushu (worth two), Shikoku (worth one) and Hokkaido (worth two). I’d make Thailand’s border accurate in this case, making it border Malaya. Although, there would be the problem of the U.K. trying to attack Thailand. I’d just make doing so be judged as an unprovoked declaration of war by Japan, just as Britain attacked another Japanese or entered China.
Honshu was meant to be worth four not three. My apologies, I don’t know how –- if possible — to edit messages.

Welcome to the forum, Spaghetti King
Socotra on the list was supposed to be Bahrain, I apologise for that.
The Western Aleutian Islands were supposed to be in Sea Zone 4.
