Good jkid. But any chance we can remove some of the previous versions? DVFG maps are the biggest drain on server space that we have (though on the plus side at 54 Kb it's a good-sized map!)

Pedros, I deleted the first one. Jkid, looks awesome! Do you think anything else should be changed, or can we get the show on the road!

Pedros has suggested that another GM be found since a 14 player game with map changes is not best for a new GM, and I agree.

Once a GM is found, I will PM him the layers of the map.

Does anyone think that chhanging the Turkish center to Smyrna would be a good idea allowing him to ally with Rummania against greece as well as vis versa? Is this just me thinking triangles are the only way to make a good diplomacy board?
It is better to have scs then allies, assuming something aproaching equal combat power in each

Your credibility with eliminated powers is irrelavant

Keep your allies happy enough that they stay allies

I don't know, what does everyone else think? Alright Jkid, although could you also PM me when you get a new GM?

One comment (sorry if this has been discussed - not read whole thread)

There appears to be a 4-way junction at Got/Nwy/Swe/Fin - this is never good on a dip map, always causes confusion.

Wouldn't go so far a "never" - the one in Ancient Med contributes a huge amount to the game. But I agree it needs to be thought about very carefully. And also you need to specify clearly whether diagonal moves are allowed or not (if not, then you have a serious stalemate risk.)
