    Here is a map I have been saving for this occasion. Enjoy.

    I am working out the last little details of the story behind it, I'll get back to you when it is all worked out.

    I do like this base map. Could you post a link to its blank version, please? I'd like to use it for a map or two myself :)

    Wow, I was wondering when Map Thread VI would come a few seconds before I saw it on the recent updates.

    Psychic much?

    Of course. I'm posting it on the Blank Map Thread as we speak. I do look forward to seeing what a Master can do with it.

    It would be heresy to not have the classic basemap on the first page with a classic ATL scenario:

    Soviets on Cтероидах (Soviets on Steroids, as my Russian dictionary tells me), 1989.

    No need to make it fancy. Just pay attention to details, and a good historian can make a great map just using MSPain.

    I Claim the honour of Posting the First UCS Map on this new Thread.

    The World: 1941

    POD: Instead of Capitulating as in OTL, France Fights on during the Battle of France. Despite putting up a spirited defense, the Germans relentlessley push on, taking Paris after a month long seige on July 7th. In a last ditch attempt to fight on, the French government relocates to Toulouse on July 10, the same day Mousalini, in an act of stupidity, declares war on the Allies, invading Southern France. Due to early Italian gains and an inevitable German Victory. The French Government, along with virtually all the French Fleet and a Great Portion of the French Army and thier equipment, escape to Algeria, with the Government reforming in Algiers. France itself has fallen, but the fight will continue.

    The Axis Powers had not expected this, hoping that they could force the French Government to declare an armistice. However, the opposite happend, the Allies are now on the Offensive. The Italain Colonies are swollowed up with ease, with the last Italian forces in Libya and East Africa surrendering surrendering on November 1st and November 15th respectivley. Mousalini's September Invasion of Greece also goes horribly wrong and by Mid December, the Last Italian forces have been expelled from Albania.

    With the Italain fleet sunk, her colonies lost and talk of Mutiny in the forces, King Victor Emmanuel III dissmises Mousalini on January 7 and attempts to request an armistace. However, Hitler, fearfull that his former ally might change sides, orders that Italy be occupeid and Mousalini reinstalled. Gemran forces enter Rome on the 11th after no resistence, deposing the King and installing the Italian National Socialist Republic, with Mousalini at it's head. Although he has secured his Ally, he is forced to postpone his planned invasion of the Soviet Union.

    With virtual complete controll of the Mediteranian, the Anglo-French forces decide to next stirke Sicily, hoping to use it as a base for an invasion of the Italain Penninsula. With only scant Italain Resistance, the Island is taken within five days. Boyed with succes after succes, the Allies could be forgiven for thinking they were beggining to turn the tide, however, there was a new threat, one from the east. And no, it was not Japan...

    I love how Austrialia is always last to go, sometimes even after the US, in the cold war gets hot scenarios.

    Havn't had a 2012 prediction in awhile. This map is about a strong moderate party emerging from both major parties, with some members of congress defecting to it. Each party is roughly 20 EV away from each other with Rep>Dem>Moderates. No party has the 270 required. In the house of representitives* the Republicans are the largest party, but not the majority and the senate* is 48-48-4.

    *Keep in mind the NEW congress is what votes, not the old one.

    I find it amusing that only 1 of your moderate party states went McCain, and that by 4,000 votes.

    I was going with the assumption that the republicans can't lose much more, and will slightly rebound by 2012. The democrats on the other hand still have the possibilty for a split.
