Update:

CopComm and Admin are working on creating a larger list of cities and sectors to assemble for a broader map of the Earth and Combine control. The new cities that have been added but are not map locations so far are as follows:

City 5: Maraba, Brazil
City 6: Los Angeles, USA
City 9: Dublin, Ireland
City 10: Mexico City, Mexico
City 11: Calgary, Canada
City 14: Warsaw, Poland
City 15: Baghdad, Iraq
City 20: Bengaluru, India
City 25: Pyongyang, North Korea
City 33: Taipei, Taiwan
City 34: Seol, South Korea
City 39: Melbourne, Australia
City 40: Cairo, Egypt
City 42: Anchorage, USA
City 45: Keraniganj, India

This list is subject to expansion, and the numbers/locations are subject to change as well. For now, keep these in mind if considering adding new cities. Please do not change their number designation if adding them to the map.

Notification:
In Lore submissions, you can now submit faction lore for those factions on the map and the ones you create. You can even create more detailed lore for Union bases/strongholds and have them submitted in for review by the Content Creation Team. Character lore for faction leaders and so on can also be submitted now. So go ahead and make your submissions if you have any you wish to add.

It is basically a section where you can post a lot of detail into that which you make considering the map text space is limited and readable is not the best for long sections of text, forums is a much better place for it. Go crazy if you will. ;)

Update:
  • Added UVB-76 on the map
  • Added KILO DETACHMENT on the map (Still waiting on RAD for comment)

Update:

A general sector map has been added for Earth. Note that the official sector and city list thread has been removed and its contents transferred to a new thread for the sector map.

Note as well that city numbers have been added so that there are at least 4 cities in each region, with smaller regions having only two, and none having three. Please bear this in mind when creating new cities for a certain region: the city number will not change when you write lore for a new city. Use the pre-determined city numbers when making a new city using one of the 'N/A' slots available.

Added:
  • City Twenty Five - North Korea, Pyongyang and affiliated regions. (More to come).
  • United Korean Front resistance group, stationed around the DMZ.
Modified:
  • Cities now appear first on the map as per their Green, Orange, Red and Purple icons.
  • Combine affiliated markers now appear second just before cities.
  • Resistance comes third after all Union related markers.
Map's now much more organised and visually appealing this way. Points of interest and other miscellaneous additions and threats can be seen by properly zooming into the map towards their destinations.
