  1. Chörnyj Orel`s map storage

    From that day on, I will post my maps and ideas (TLs, Mini-TLs, ....) here (in irregular intervals). To start it all, here is an idea of a neutral, unified and demilitarized post-WWII-Germany, I got a few days ago: Hope you`ll enjoy my work.
  2. What Illyria would You prefer?

    Hey! I was looking at a Yugolsavia-map and thought "What if these areas were all united for a long time?" and then I wondered how it could be so and under which "nation". I brought up 6 ideas, where I can`t decide with which one I would do a TL with. So I ask You. What of these Illyrias would...
  3. "Pizza Beer and Metal" Color Scheme (PiBeMe)

    Not enough color schemes in here yet, huh? From time to time, I will post here my idea of a good color scheme. Let me present you my first group of base colors, the Uralic group: Opinions? There will come many many more (and better) pics of my idea. But please be patient. ;-) Enjoy.
  4. alternate names for some slavic countries?

    Hi! I didn`t know, if I should post this in here or in "pre-1900". I decided here, because these countries came independent after 1900. So my question is, if and what could these Slavic countries (/people) have been named alternatively. Belarus Other than using the terms "(White) Ruthenia" or...
  5. Realistic (!) climate map of worlda w/ Africa and South America switched?

  6. WI: Finland keeps part of Russia/ USSR?

    I was just wondering about a scenario, in which Finland never left Russia in 1917 and became part of the Soviet Union. Later - under Stalin in the 30s or early 40s - the Finnish SSR got united with Karelia and Kola. That bigger Finland finally became independent in 1991. How plausible is such a...
  7. WI: Divided Czechoslovakia after WWII?

    If the Soviet Union was a little weaker than OTL and Germany got divided (mostly) by the Elbe river (with East Germany holding the 1937-eastern borders, minus East Prussia), would it be possible, the USA and the USSR decided to split CS into two parts as well? One part is western orientated...
  8. After WWII you should divide Germany - but how?

    Ok, let`s say, Nazi Germany did not massacre Poles and didn`t do any suffer to them - it just occupied Poland and installed a Germany-friendly government, so that there is no need to give land to Poland after Nazi Germany lost the war. Which of these options would you prefer most, and why...
  9. Normans kept their nordic language. And now?

    Due of boredom I was looking at a France map and my eyes spotted the region, we call today the Normandy. I thought "What if the Normans never got franconised and kept their original language for whatever reason?" So..how could this change history? Would the Normannic region be independent from...
  10. My own color palette: COCS (Chörnyj Orel Color Scheme)

    A few years, I started doing my own color scheme thingy. I`m overworking it now. Here is a little example for what I have done so far. But there is more to do....when I got some time, I will show more. I did colors for the mothercountry, protectorate, dominion and territory. And yes...
  11. More "western" Russia, Belarus and Ukraine after the fall of the USSR?

    What if all these three countries do massive reformes in both political and economical ways? What if, there were leaders, who brought these ex-Soviet Republics into very western-stlye, democratic systems, other than supporting oligarchs like in OTL? Would Belarus and Ukraine (and maybe even...
  12. WI: Europe without Indo-Europeans/ Asia without Turkics?

    Don`t know, if this topic was here, before...but can you imagine, how could Europe and the world look like, if Proto-Indo-Europeans never spread over Europe? And what if, Proto-Turkics never spread over a huge area over Asia, let`s say, they only moved to India or something.. What would the...
  13. Independet Kurdistan after WWII - how possible/plausible?

    How plausible or possible would be an independent Kurdistan sometime between 1945 and, let`s say 1970? And I mean a Democratic or at least "western" Kurdistan. And how big would this country be?
  14. Unified Balticum during the 30s?

    Would an unified Baltic Country be possible, where all people of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania can live together peacefully and being friendly to each other? Just as similar (or even as same) as in OTL Switzerland? A unified Balticum, that is formed by Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania to build a...
  15. Historic (OTL) Borders on Google Earth

    Hi there! Did anyone of You draw the one or another historic border on Google Earth, via path tool? I think it would be pretty cool and useful.. But I also ask, `cause I have a request....does a .kmz-data exist, where the borders of the German Realm of 1937 have been drawn? Maybe even as...
  16. Most early possible flight to moon?

    Would it possible, to bring men on the moon earlier than 1969? Maybe even in the mid- or late 50s? What do You think would be the most early possible Point for a flight to the moon?

  18. The SUPER-MEGA-POWER-TURBO-ULTRA-HYPER BAM :-P

    So, my GF (and partly I) are working on an absolutely Über-BAM .... and what can I say. Most of Danish Jylland is done, so far (except for the one or other lake, yet) :) Coastlines and shores are at least 99,25% accurate! Will post more, when done.
  19. [REQUEST] Map of Central Europe/Germany

    Hi there! I post here my - admittedly a bit chaotic - basemap for Germany. Now I have a little request.... Due to little time I`d request following addings to this map: Borders (as the others please as accurate as possible and one pixel thick and just the other borders crossing) -Sudetenland...
  20. WI: Serbians got islamic

    Okay....as we all know, Albanians and "Bosniaks" became islamic during the Ottoman occupation of the balkans. But what if the Serbians (and maybe also the Romanians) got islamized by the Ottomans and the "Bosniaks" and Albanians stayed Catholic (and/or got their version(s) of protestantism)...
