I have a problem understanding river access around montreal. Montreal harbor is connected with Lac de Montreal (North to Lawrence) but not with Rapides de Lachine (South to Lake Ontario). This means if I want to get to Lake Ontario I can use my bateaux to transport troops to Montreal but from there on they have to march through the wilderness, which will almost annihilate my infantry.

IIRC, the fleets operating on the Champlain were built...on the Champlain (either at Isle aux Noix in the North or at Ticonderoga in the south)

Then I have even more reason to want to send Burgoyne elsewhere. I am sorry to hear that a portage link was not included here. Are the other ones such as Ticonderoga, Fort Stanwix also not included?

First attachment shows short way to Alexandria - via Annapolis harbor. It seems shorter than through Potomac mouth - attachment 2 (made manually). Works for other harbors (Albany-Kingston, for instance). Patch 1.01b Montcalm Scenario.
Perhaps all is OK but personally for me it looks unnaturally, sorry.

The area of Kentucky in the map was basically Cherokee or Shawnee territory... depending on which nation you were speaking to. Both nations hunted there but there weren't any real towns there during the period WIA covers.
I'll be delighted to look at this.
..and what specific region or regions [by name, with UID # if possible] would you suggest for their 'relocation'?

It's there in pretty much every scenario I've seen so far, even ones not involving it.
The Creek village is in Apalachee (which on the map would be in modern-day Kentucky) A more accurate location would be way further south in Talladega. The map's Talladega is close to where the battle of Horseshoe Bend was fought and is historically the heartland of the creeks.
Speaking of Horseshoe Bend, maybe someone who can change/add towns to the map could create a scenario around Creek War or mix in the Creek War with a War of 1812 scenario since the Creek War was a part of the War od 1812.
