Hi there,
I have just noticed that on the updated latest preview version of the TS Deluxe map (http://www.gmtgames.com/nnts/TSMap11.jpg ), East Germany is painted in the Western Europe color shade! Now, I really think that's one bug GMT should fix... - Cheerio

Just to clarify: I meant the country on the map, NOT the country's counter placement box.

Maybe that have already done it. The link you sent shows EG with the prefect shade (Eastern Europe shade).

Edit: Got it now. Yup, there is an error there

Good catch. I'll post this over at CSW, where it is certain to be seen by Mark Simonitch.

Edit: When I follow the link, the DDR is the same color as the BRD and different from Czechoslovakia & Poland!

To be precise I don't see a border between West and East Germany, which should be between their boxes.

The former border appears to be completely covered by the two country boxes and the brownish connection line, which is between Lower Saxony (FRG) and the former GDR Bezirk Magdeburg (today Saxony-Anhalt).

The situation seems to be persistent, as the pictures included in the Deluxe Edition rulebook preview show all of Germany's shape in the Western European color shade...

When I check that preview, the colour shade is correct. Hopefully the final map is indeed correct.

Moreover, Austria has the Eastern European color shade, while Finland is painted in the darker Western European color shade.

While those countries are supposed to belong to both Western and Eastern Europe, gameplay-wise, I think the color shading should be the other way round (if at all different):

Austria was officially neutral since the Austrian State Treaty of 1955, but was definitely leaning more towards the West than Finland did (the Finno-Soviet treaty of 1948 comes to mind).
