The middle east is missing loyalties, they are all loyal to ottomans. No Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq or whatever... Really sad.

2. Memel city is German, should be Lithuanian because Germany lost the city after WW1 (just as Gdynia, Poznan are Polish loyalty even if they belong to Germany at the beginning of the game.

I'm not sure this is either sad or wrong. In 1914, the nations you mention did not exist. They came to be not because those geographic blocks were logical but because colonial powers dropped lines and maps and tried to force the people living there to adapt to it. The events of the 1920s-1940s created those nations. In 1914, their fate has not yet been decided.

I'll review Memel, thanks.

I agree, but certainly people in the middle east weren't all Ottoman loyalists? It's a couldron of nations, the middle east is and was. Even if not by today's standards, surely there could be some loyalties added there? If not for fun factor or for realism, then at least so that players would have a choice to 'liberate' the lands from the Ottomans.

And what borders would you use? Loyalty to what region?

The Ottoman heavily suppressed the other cultures. I'm not sure different loyalties makes sense here.

Does this means you are planning to give us hey loyalty switch?! Since you are now admitting loyalties did change on rather massive scale :-)

But on the topic, people of todays Palestina or Lebanon or Iraq never felt as ottomans. They felt they are arabs (member of arab tribes) or levantines or egypteans. So, for the sake of playability and some historicall accouracy I recomend that these areas are not loyal to Ottoman empire. Adding loyalties roughly to today country borders may be considered to represnt different arab tribes that lived there.

All these hexes being loyal to OE is just wrong!

"roughly too" is much to imprecise. I disagree with modern borders.

The loyalty can be changed by events. If we add the creation of those regions, we can use events to control the loyalty.

For what map are you proposing this change? If they lose it AFTER WW1 then the WW1 map is correct...

In what year does that happen?

From what you said there I'm thinking this is a possible scripted event, not something we need to change on the map. IF "Germany dead" THEN give Memel -> Lithuania.

Can we have the same event for Ottoman Empire. If dead=>make Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Jordan and Iraq and switch hex loyalties?
