I believe you read too hastily my proposal. It is certainly not about making Free France starts in Polynesia. I propose to allocate the "French" slot used by Polynesia (no historical justification for that AFAIK) to Free France, based -- if there is a need for a physical location -- to a hex in Great-Britain. If there is no need, just have them conquered if London falls and have them receive 15 MPP a turn from a script.
The other change is to give them a decent force pool, on par with what they achieved historical in number of men.
This would be much much more historical. It certainly reinforce the Allies, but if there is a need for compensation, I'm sure one among 50 solutions can be found to balance the Axis. Here is one, have them receive twice a year a spoil of 50 MPP (or more, or less) as overall spoils of wars from requisitions. Or give them an extra Uboot, or anything, I don't care really. This is not because something favors a side that it should not be implemented, if it is historical . If you go this trend, then the game is chess.
Right now, Free French are near non existent and work with the GBR budget. They should be a minor ally.. with their own budget, and certainly not have Polynesia representing them!
