Yep. If we do that, please let me make the regions <.< >.> Not because of any other reason then to satisfy my raging cartophilia (screw you card collectors, I'm taking back that word).

Yeah sure. Actually you might as well add a new layer now and start cutting it up.

Writing down some thoughts as Ovi and I are chatting.

Using EUIV as a template, the map will be broken into areas. Now, EU breaks things down using a fair amount of historical context, as well as geography. We're only using geography, so we can start with a smaller number of territories. As we play and as some territories become prosperous, we can discuss splitting them up or further dividing regions to add more playable space. But I think we can agree that especially early on, we don't need a full compliment of 400 individual territories, most of which we'll never see.

Current map for those interested: https://gofile.io/?c=kXTL8V

By the way, should you guys decide on a version of mine, I can provide a more detailed map, showing localized ecozones, such as major river ecologies etc. Just let me know.

Right then, to elaborate on Sam's idea.

I'm thinking something along the lines of Europa Universalis in terms of how many territories there will be. We're talking upwards of 100 or more? Maybe 200 or more? Are you guys cool with that? Or do you want a smaller/larger scope?

Should be fairly big regions at the start when we're just spreading monkeymen around. If we zoom in on a specific area to start doing more detailed stuff then smaller regions would make sense.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

It's looking like three, honestly.

Sam you have any thoughts on Flisch's maps?

I feel like 1 actually makes the most sense to me. Not overthinking here, going with my gut. I have the best intuition.

I'm fine with any of them.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Since there have been some voted for Charlie already and because I have nothing better to do, I decided to do a more detailed map.



You may notice that I actually moved Australia into the east and Amazonia onto the place where Australia used to be. The reason is while mapping out the details I noticed that having the Caucasus on its own remote island/continent makes no sense at all, so I did it like here. I also swapped the antarctic and arctic ecozones again, because I think having penguins in Africa is less weird than polar bears. (Infact, South Africa already has penguins.) Also, Canada has penguins now. Hooray.

Also I added a 1 pixel Christmas island, because I'm my own person and you can't tell me what to do.

Anyway, let me know if you like this one, if you want any changes, or if you decide to go with another version.

You may notice a new lake in the Northwest of that map (labeled as Lake Baikal). The lake will be in the file that I using, once I finish with it.

Flisch this looks great! You've done an impressive job, thank you so much for the time you spent. :)

Also, totally cool with you adding an island. We'll uh... talk about that. :3

Also, the island that has "california" as a label.

If it's anything like real-life California, it's going to be fought over by a lot of people. It will probably be one of the most fertile and economically viable pieces of land on our entire planet.

Nah, they won't have that problem because under my rule, they won't be allowed to grow crops that upend the water table and otherwise act like a bunch of dorks that think the ride won't ever end. :D

My army of dorks will seize your land and use it to grow watermelons and cucumbers.
