    @redrum For your consideration...

    @Hepps I dig it.

    @Hepps Maybe you want to consult a period atlas for the cities population, to decide what is getting the urban terrain? Like Tsaritsyn was really a minor city, while Kiev was a very big one, if I recall correctly. Also, I cannot recall the "Tcherniov" name, if it is not a different way to spell "Chernigov" (I guess not, since they are both there).

    I think "Politics of Power" would be better than "Power of Politics".

    Fwiw I agree. Maybe something really dynamic will still pop up : )

    Not all of the selections are done based on historical significance or accuracy. Sometimes game-play will take the front seat to an adherence to accuracy. Tsaritsyn is better positioned to help out the Tsarist Russian cause by being better positioned as a fall back place to combat Central aggression rather than increasing Kiev's significance in the game. I chose to lump the more significant production capacity in with Odessa as the region contained the naval production for Russia along with the city of Mykolaiv.

    Also, I cannot recall the "Tcherniov" name, if it is not a different way to spell "Chernigov" (I guess not, since they are both there).

    No idea... I put it out to the community and this is what I got back.

    I think "Politics of Power" would be better than "Power of Politics".

    I like both!

    @Hepps Ok, but I can easily see a number of people asking themselves "Why is Kiev not a city?".

    Anyways, in case it may be helpful, here are all the cities with 100,000 people or more in the Russian Empire (according to a 1920 atlas of mine) for 1913, except 1915 for Petrograd, 1916 for Moscow, and 1914 or 1910 of some other cities, in thousands:

    Europe:
    Petrograd: 2,319
    Moscow: 1,817
    Warsaw: 789
    Odessa: 631
    Kiev: 626
    Riga: 569
    Lodz: 416
    Kharkov: 258
    Saratov: 236
    Yekaterinoslav: 220
    Rostov: 205
    Vilnius: 204
    Kazan: 195
    Ivanovo-Suessensk: 168
    Astrakhan: 164
    Orenburg: 147
    Samara: 144
    Tula: 141
    Reval: 138
    Kishinev: 129
    Yaroslavl: 120
    Minsk: 118
    N.Novgorod: 112
    Dvinsk: 111
    Vitebsk: 109
    Nikolayev: 106
    Ufa: 106
    Perm: 105
    Goumel: 105
    Tsaritsyn: 101
    Asia:
    Tiflis: 328
    Tashkent: 272
    Baku: 237
    Omsk: 136
    Irkutsk: 130
    Saliany: 121
    Kokand: 119
    Tomsk: 117
    Yekaterinodar: 107

    (I don't recognize Saliany)

    @Cernel I'm just not sure that population data alone is a measure of a cities signifinance... unless you are utilizing a separate resource such as manpower.

    While I get your complaint regarding Kiev... I am less worried about how many people will have a decidedly unfavorable reaction versus my decision to make Odessa the powerful territory in the region to support naval production as a counter measure to swift Ottoman dominance. While also forcing the territory to do double duty vs the German and Austro pressure.

    Perhaps if Kievians? Kievinites? Kievisarians? start spamming the thread en-mass... I will reconsider my position.

    @Hepps Ah, also, not sure if the ownerships definitions are waiting for the release, but for that portion all is good except Lviv, or rather Leopolis or Lemberg, that should be part of Austria-Hungary. Also this way the borders would look more like the historical shape, since Russian Poland was bulgy like that, and Lviv seems to clearly capture the Galician border with Russia. This would require changing the name of Galicia to something else, tho.



  • Did you value Ottoman territories if yes can I see a screenshot?


  • Donators Moderators Admin

    @Schulz Yes all territory valuations are complete.

    However I think we shall save the remaining screen shots for the release. Between the starting financial and military distribution as well as the seasonal effects... I want you to have something to be excited about. 🙂
