    Default War and Peace map

    A couple of months ago I got a new game called "War and Peace" by worthington Games. It is a nice simple Risk-like game with kool plastic ships, soldiers, and Cavalry, but the map...well, suffice to say I Hated it. To me it looks waaay to dark and over saturated. This is a small image of it from the company website.

    So, I decided to re-draw it and make it into something I would like. I have been working on it, off and on, for some time and right now I am about 95% done. I made it larger, with (what I think is) a more period feel and a much lighter hand on the colours. I also replaced the generic numbering system on the original map with province and territory names off of another game map I have (called Age of Napoleon). I missed filling in the name for Finland, and I need to change some of the flags, which I have been told are not quite right for the time period. Oh, and I also need to double check the spellings on the provinces. I know for a fact some of them have accents I will have to put in. Once I do that I will see about printing it out.

    I like this a lot. Simple and neat! Forgive me if I'm wrong, I don't know much about the period this game is supposed to deal with, but I noticed there is no Kiev in Russia... Wasn't Kiev always something like a power center in European history (after it's establishment, that is)?

    Beautiful. There seems to be a typo for Ireland, assuming you are trying to spell it in the 'local' language.

    Thanks. I still have to fix that and a few other typos I found after I did a test-printing. I couldnt resist setting up the game on the test map- it looks pretty good!

    Your map is lovely, and a tremendous improvement over the commercial one. You ought to send the game company a pic of this, who knows, they may wish to commission you for future work.

    Cheers,

    Got to say I agree with Arsheesh on this one. Your map is definitely an improvement on the commercial one.
