Map correlation
« on: April 04, 2010, 05:26:28 AM »
I was wondering how the "around Africa" sea zones would be dealt with when playing both halves of the game together?

Do you just ignore the last set of boxes that have India and Australia in them and just come out into the sea zones on the Pacific map?

From looking at the Pacific map in the Jon Con thread, it would seem that the numbers (the "3"s) don't exactly match the number of sea zone present for movement to Australia.

When you cross the "3" line it counts at one movement point and you move to the Pacific map. It does match up to 3 movement points to reach Australia.

When playing both the Pacific and European theaters - you cross over when you move across the "3" line on the European movement map.  It is 1 movement point and you are on the first sea zone on the Pacific map.

It is 3 movement points from the "Europe box" on the edge of the Pacific map to the West Coast of Australia (along the Soutern edge) and 3 MPs from the Europe box to Bombay India.  The distance between Australia and Ceylon is also 3 (and to India proper, 4) - but to simplify movement when playing the European theater, we made it a consistent 3 between Australia and India.

Movement works out pretty much the same when playing both theaters or just one when trying to get units from one theater to the other.
