War Maps - Big Maps and Map updating

The war maps are essential in the war-game as they show many details of the countries involved, positions of military units and essential targets in all countries.

The best map to use is the "big map" which is four times larger than the map showing on the country home page.

The map has the same number of items showing as the smaller map but the area is larger and the size of the objects on the map is the same as on the smaller map; it is clearer and much less crowded than the smaller one.

When military units are moving, the maps are updated once per 5 minutes and will show the current position of all the military units.

The map also shows zones in the country with their colors. Zones can be empty or can have one or more objects like a city, a factory, a fortification etc. placed on them.

Map customizing and the number of visible objects

In war, all objects in the country show on the map. The map-customizing feature is deactivated. Moving cities and factories remains controversial in peacetime. Moving them around during war is ridiculous and will create impossible situations. Also the choice of objects feature, to select the objects that show on the map, is disabled when war is declared and roads too are painted for the full 100%. A large country may have 300 to 600 objects.
