The Sandquest
So I've seen some players here go on some grand "quests" I'll say to play every variant on the site. I've decided I want to join the club and do so aswell, but I want to do so with some sort of cool "twist". Trying to solo every variant is a little impractical, and I'm not certain about something super simple like making them all gunboats. So anyone got some ideas?

Inherent Balance
I was thinking about my past games today, and I noticed a pattern: when I played or fought against a (mostly) sea power that started in the corner, that power tended to have the advantage because of their spawn place and unit composition on the map. Does anyone else feel like this is the case, or do you think that these types of powers are balanced?
For reference, I was thinking of Italy--Balkans 1860, Srivijaya--Known World 901, Madagascar--Africa, and Japan--Youngstown WWII.

Interesting idea to have every land space be a center.

It's certainly an interesting idea, and one I'd be open to playtest. I have one concern, that the corner powers might be a bit too strong. For example, you'd need to surround literally every single tile around Turkey to break into the country if the Turkey player orders their supports right. I'm not sure what could solve this--perhaps divide the neutrals into smaller SC tiles (e.g. TEH into TEH and SYR) or make the sea zones more numerous?
Hmmm, alright, thanks! I am genuinely interested in either making this one myself or maybe someone else would do it, but I need to it be rather fair (at least to some degree
Hmmm, yes, the African power also seems to be very easily stalemateable. I think a few problems could be solved with more Sea Tiles
I think I’ve found a solution:

I will make a Syria Supply Center, which will be directly connected to the Algeria Province. I will also make an Eastern Med Sea Tile, which will be directly connected to the SOG sea tile

Having this many SC's, you have to remember, that's the number of units that will be on the board. You're gonna end up with major stalemates.

This is a stylistic issue, but you should double-check the geography before you publish. The Spanish supply centers are totally off, for example.
@JECE yea I did it from memory, not too accurate lmao. That’s something I’d change if I decided to publish this game

Definitely a better map. I'd be interested to see which powers end up being the best one, and how the general gameplay feels. If you make a few test games, I'd like to play in them.

Help finding a vdiplomacy variant name
What was the name of the East Asian map, that I believe was being playtested(?), where the countries were: China, Taiwan, Philippines, Vietnam(?), Indonesia, and Brunei?

ER Team Game Revival
Hey Folks! I was recently thinking about the Europa Renevatio Team game we did a couple years ago and I think we can do it again, better this time. Among the improvements, it may be ideal to determine the teams ahead of time and make them public so we can try to come up with a "balanced" set of 9 teams of 4. Would anyone else (err... 35 others?) want to give it a shot?

Interested in organising a game for folks interested in playing other big hitters. Not sure what the cut off should be, but would be good to get a mass of quality players interested and then we'll land on a general consensus if some aren't as big hitters as others.

[Speed Europa variant] moving from Burgundy to Ruhr should not be possible
Hello,

As noticed by Tyran (user ID 2518) in the game "Wolf Pack v3" (game ID 58137) armies may move from Burgundy to Ruhr and vice versa (see the Map info tab of the variant's page) while the map doesn't say that. Maps on the external variant homepage also, so I suppose it is an error in the code, not the map.
