whites the color of surrender and thats what neutrals do best. A color needs to have a vested interest in the game, while the rest do not have a side and are neutral... hence white.
We really need an Axis and Allies World War one game so i can play that on August 1st, 2014.

Yellow is the colour of cowardice and that's one thing you can't accuse the Japanese soldier of.

White goes much better with the black/grey colours of the European Axis in contrast to the "earthy" colours of the Allies.

Neutrals will be white.

Orange for the Japanese territories like Revised. I already have tan for the Commonwealth and allies. Dont know what to do with Netherlands colonies... for now they are a different red colour from the Russians... I dont want to mix them with the Commonwealth as I did for Belgian Congo... the board would seem to much tannnnn :!:

A work in progress...

Not sure I like the toned sea zones, it rather distracts from the look of the map which should be clear and simple. Unless territories have terrain types, keep the basic colour plain and get rid of all the stippling.

Why do people always have China as purple!? Definantly should be dark blue to match the Nationalist (KMT) flag and roundel.

If you use that color of orange, then you might have trouble with confusing with the tan.

Mimmo this map is exactly what I would want. You obviously used alot from AAP(I have this) and AAE(I assume). You also used some of your own ideas as well. The colors are perfect, I actually like the AA maps. Moscow may not be on the right spot in AAR but the colors are good. I can't tell in your pics but is Moscow where it should be?

If I would change anything I would not use as many territories for China. I think you could get rid of 4-5 of them. Your sea zones have too many 4 corner spaces(4 zones that meet at the corners). I wouldn't use 4 corners for a sea zones. Other than that I think it is perfect.

This is probably what DELUXE AA would look like. Larry take notes :wink:

Did you ever get the map uploaded anywhere like IL mentioned?
Foolish mortals, I will destroy you all!!!
NOT
