I would love this map! I specifically got on here today to see if there was one available…

RE: Ambilzi & Grasshopper's 1940 Global Map (Video Added)
This is amazing! Great work! I have 4’x8’ of sheet metal on my office wall where I have a 6’x3’ 1942 map up (laminated, pieces magnetized) for vertical game play. Would love to have a Global Version up on the wall as well. Quick question - do you have this in photoshop where you can still remove the layers of the charts you added? I would love to print a copy with just the map and I can separately print the charts and have them off to the side on my wall. I like the “prettiness” of having just the map on the wall and the IPC chart along the bottom is the only chart I would keep. I can “delete” them myself in photoshop but it’d be nice to have the original water textures / zone lines.
Let me know and thank you for sharing this file! Wonderful.
RE: IL's New Global 1940 map file…
IL - awesome map. Preparing to print, quick question. When I opened in Photoshop the sea color is a much darker blue in the Pacific than the Europe map. Do I have the right files? I’ll be working to match them up unless I am doing something wrong. Thanks!
Round 16 - Pointless Game Cotinuation Question
Hello A&A Experts,
So I’m on Round 16 in a 1942 Game - Due to some bad Russia rolling the game was really over on round 3 but I keep playing because I can’t stand losing to my friend (that was previously 0-5 against me). Anyway, here’s the scenario. I lost Russia and had a huge UK navy so when it was clear that Germany was going to take U.K., I retreated the entire Navy & men to the Pacifc where I planned one last dual U.S. /U.K. strike to take Japan. It’s about to succeed but my opponent wisely took out my U.S. fleet so when I take Japan I will take it with U.K. … and U.K. lost it’s capital.
So does this just mean that U.K. would put the Japan Money in the bank (and can’t spend it) and then if Japan takes it back it get’s the money right back? If I held it (which I think I can for one turn) I assume U.K. cannot build in Japan on the following turn because of losing the capital? Correct?
Man, I wish I could have taken it with the U.S. because then it would have been U.S. versus Germany - a very interesting game that I might have been able to come back on.
Tank Question / Non-Combat Question
Hello - after so many games I was surprised a scenario came up that I wasn’t sure about… here it goes:
I understand how blitzing works and I understand that a tank can move 2 spaces in non-combat through friendly / occupied territories (if it did not engage in combat).
I also know that land forces that were not used in battle can reinforce newly taken territories. Here’s the scenario:
Let’s say I have Tanks in Eastern Europe but I don’t use them in battle. Then I am able to conquer both Ukraine S.S.R. and the Caucasus. Can I move my Tanks in Eastern Europe through Ukraine (a newly taken territory) and reinforce the Caucasus (also newly taken).
This was a neat little trick that came up because if the tanks engaged in battle they wouldn’t be able to reinforce the Caucasus.
Anyway, we decided that this was fine but I just wanted to confirm that this movement is legal… I couldn’t find any other messages about it.
