A&A Global Map

Post by Dave » Thu Apr 21, 2011 12:20 am

Let me start by showing what I had to do in order to make my map. I had to resort to cutting up my existing map so that it would fit on my scanner and then I used Photoshop to put it back together. Along the way, I made many corrections and improvements (in my opinion at least) to the map.

Enjoy,
Dave

Also, I have it adhered to a sheet of metal and I will be magnetizing all of my pieces and chips so that it can be mounted on the wall where I can leave the game set up between play sessions. If anyone is wondering, I enlarged the map to 84" x 38.5".

I cant really see what you did since you got the original map over the one you made, so i can't see how well ( or not) what you claim came out.

Can we get another look of just the larger map?
We really need an Axis and Allies World War one game so i can play that on August 1st, 2014.

Here's a pic of the Western US and Mexico. I removed the 50ipc marker and centered the 10ipc marker. Since sea zone 10 does not connect with the other side of the board, I elongated the two territories so they take up all of the sea zone. Also, hopefully you can see that I added text which labels which territories they border on the other map. I also did this for all the sea zones on the edges.

Also, I didn't think that the convoy markers and kamikaze symbols stood out enough, so I changed them.

Yea, it's coming. Give me some time.

Here's a pic of the whole map. The file is so small, it doesn't yield much information though.

This pic shows how I added a bit of extra territory to the edge of the map and added a border between C. US and Alberta. Also, I changed the border between New Brunswick, Quebec, and the E. US so that there is no confusion over how it properly is to meet with sea zone 106.
