A&A Global Map

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?

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.

Another pic showing the labeling of adjacent sea zones at the edge of the board.

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.
