The Colonial Era in Asia and East Africa. The nations are as follows (and based on the
diplomacy map "Colonial"
Black is Holland in the Dutch indies. they have yet to gain a foothold on the mainland.
Their main competitors were France and England.
Green is japan who has battled constantly with China. They need to hold off the advancing
Dutch troops as well as gain some ground on China.
China is Yellow and has had conflict over the centuries with Japan and now the encroaching
Russian empire.
Red is Russia, and they do not concern themselves too much with the seas, but instead
focus on controlling the lands of Turkey and China.
Grey is Turkey who has always been a force in the mid east, but now has to contend with
the British, French, and always Russia to the north.
Orange is France, the only country I changed from the diplomacy map to give them a fair
chance in this game. they have moved to Africa and Madagascar, and will compete with
Turkey, England, and Holland for control of the seas.
Blue is the British Empire who has just about pissed off everyone at this point, but find
themselves in a very good position to gain some ground while their enemies bicker amongst
themselves.
Just a side note here.
Besides my World War 3 map which was one of my first ones and has some big mistakes on it,
this is my personal favorite map.

Even though I didn't get to play the whole game, I really like this map. It's just plain cool.
One of the best maps I've seen yet, but I don't like playing in FOW.

Pretty good I'd say. China will be experiancing trouble from the west as the Japanese troops
invide.

also some basic artillery from china could devastate japan...
never mind, didnt notice the bottom base, yea good map
TheGeneral (11/14/2005 08:13pm):
This is a realistic looking map. I like where red starts. It gives them numerous attack options.
Japan could have more space, but still one of the best I've seen in a long time.
death flower (11/28/2005 10:26am):

thedudewhoishere (12/01/2005 04:32pm):

dboy (01/26/2006 08:28am):
a truly outstanding map
g-dog (02/05/2006 05:41am):
Currently in an amazing East v. West struggle for supremacy.
Love the map... 10/10
orangeelite (02/22/2006 08:20pm):
hm... i love it and how u placed it.. but.. in my opinion it looks as if who ever is china
will lose first cuz japan and the dutch can control the seas, preventing china in building
sea units and who ever is BM can march right into chinas land since most of chinas ports
and factories are towards the coast line.. other than that.. pretty interesting a good 8/10
Pyrranha (06/22/2006 06:55pm):
If it had roads it would be 10worthy.
oomouwmouw (06/23/2006 02:27pm):
yeah... roads would be nice. But it's still good
brandon_ridgway35 (07/08/2007 08:36pm):

Ok, firstly joey, sort your English out. Secondly, sort your history out, Britain used to
own India you idiot. Thirdly sort your geography out, the philipines is below Japan, the
islands in the south-east of the map are modern indonesia.

uh... zap? i dont think china had missle silos back in the colonial era...
roads are needed, as rain/snow would kill all non-sturm/lash people...

oh, also, what about Mt. Fuji in Japan???
the_abominator (06/17/2009 10:13am):
Needs roads. Apart from that, very good :)
Falconewing (08/06/2009 06:22pm):
Bh always wins
IPS (11/24/2015 06:14pm):
The distribution of bases of here isn't very fair to some sides, for example YC vs RF. RF
has 5 too close eachother making this side extremely strong for defensive compostures and
can easly spam infantries as meatshields, thing that YC for sure can't in more than one side.

I rate this 6/10 because severe problems of balance when playing the map.
Meta Rexy (08/12/2018 11:04am):
A fun map but has balance issues as mentioned above. I believe
demonhands released a modified version that helps a bit, though of
course this is the original.
