>So is this thing for sale or you offering it as a free download ( the map)?

Dear Imperious leader,
at the moment I have no plan to sell my game but I will be glad to offer the map as free down load.
The problem is that I don't know where I can upload the file for download as it is around 60 Mb in the printable version.
Maybe if you are interesting I can burn a CD and send it to you. Just let me know what you think.

Best regards, ciao.
Mimmo

Home based refineries were very important to Japan. Having taken over oil producing regions they still had to carry it to Japan to be refined. Sinking these tankers was a major part of US strategy, resulting in Japan having plenty of aircraft, but little fuel to put them in the air (and no trained pilots by 1945).
So yes, if you decide to have oil production the refining process has to be included, but as I suggested countries poor in oil, particularly Germany and Italy, had to produce synthetic oil whose plants in turn became targets for Allied bombing.

Mimmo, thats a great map. Its printed on cardboard? Did you printed all in one part or separeted parts? and glass uppon?

Whats the size of the map? I ask all this because Im doing one of my own and its 200 cm X 100 cm and its going quite nice with the bottom of the ocean and right now Im finishing the territory borders... lots of work as you surely know. lol

Im creating almost ALL coutries in the world at that time but I dont know about some like belgium and netherlands because that way Germany has lots of adjacent territories to defend... ( France, Switzerland, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands... ) and the UK is a one territory...

Also, Chinese and Russian territories are quite hard to define as I dont want tiny bits and moscow shouldnt be ready available for Germany...

I want naval bases. I dont want lots of them but I want really bases and not ports so these places can repair Battleships. I included some already:

Taranto
Toulon
Plymouth or Portsmouth

Constanta ?
Brest ?

Scapa Flow
Algiers
Oran
Bizerte/Tunis
Alexandria
Trincomalee
Port Sudan
Massawa
Sevastopol

Tripoli?
Tobruk?

Beirut

Trondheim
Narvik

Bergen?

Norfolk
Jacksonville
Pearl Harbour

S. Francisco?
San Diego?
Seattle?

more to be added to Japan and some other countries.

The airfields I dont think I'll add as I suppose that even every island or group of islands has at least one airfield.

Finally Ill add railroads that join territories as well as important roads (Burma road, Persian Corridor and others... ) for supply rules.

I'll post some photos here (if I can) very soon. The startup date is 1942.

Mimmo: you know you can translate the file all in one shot by using an online (internet) translator from Italian to English.. I would be willing to repair any grammatical inaccuracies so that other can enjoy your creation.

Also have one question: why do the Japanese carriers have 3 planes and 2 of them at 45 degree angles, with the third at a different angle? Do they have different types of planes?

email what you got and i can get to work. I understand you have limited time.
