Here is our map for the start of the game.

Important notes for the Seven Islands variant:

  • Due to increased number of support centers the victory condition is 21 SCs, not 18.
  • There are land bridges between Sardinia and Corsica, Sicily and Naples as well as Cyprus and Syria. I tried to make them more apparent with ugly red arrowds.

The Spring 1901 turn will end on Sunday, 9th July 2017 at 1900 GMT. Please have your orders in by then.

It took me a while, but I finally got the variant file hacked up enough to keep it running smoothly in Jdip. Unfortunately arrows to indicate land bridges were not possible without spending another week-end or so on the layer-riddled SVG file to learn why that breaks it, and units often overlap SC symbols on the new islands. I have created a transparant PNG layer that I just slap on the exported map as a lazy quickfix, as I think I have already spent more than enough time on getting the technical side to run.

On another note, I have played around with the colors while I was at it. Russia is now purple (I found the white sometimes hard to distinguish from neutral areas), while England is deep blue to not be confused with Russia. I'm also trying the modern unit symbols. If you find anything hard to see, or would prefer the classic unit symbols, let me know.

Yeah I like the purple Russia look myself. Nice and royal, appropriate for Czar of the Motherland.

Here's hoping for a good game all! Looking forward to it!

(At work now, will get to messaging when I get home, most likely)

If you find anything hard to see

England's icons are hard to make out with the black-on-darkblue.

I'll fumble with the dials when I get home. A lighter blue for England along with a turquoise tint for France might do the trick.

Yes, I concur. It's easy now, since their starting units are still A Lvp, F Lon, F Edi, but it might be a hassle further on.
