    CWM Revision 5 Status

    For those of you who are interested (especially the user worldmap), I have just begun the latest revision (the 5th) of my Colored World Map series. This will be the definitive map which will hopefully resolve many issues of of my previous CWMs. It will use Ashtagon's X-2 Color Scheme instead of my own TACOS based scheme, primary and in many cases secondary subdivisions for all but the smallest nations, sea claims and over a thousand major rivers, as well as the current political situation in Yemen, Syria, Ukraine and so much more! As I am creating this entirely from scratch (the others I just use paint to color in a blank qbam), it will be a few more months before it is ready for posting. But it's on the way!

    Looking for a recent Worlda

    May someone please help me find a new/updated blank Worlda map (with subdivisions, possibly)? I'm having a bit of trouble comparing the various versions, and there seem to be many conflicting standards on the map thread.

    "Just draw the borders of the fictional nations."

    Maybe tell us where the borders of those fictional nations are? What you are asking is basically impossible without additional information.

    Well I think all of the fictional nations in that video exist as subdivisions of countries in OTL. So it should be theoretically possible to fulfil British Empire's request (though it would take an enormous amount of time)

    Yeah. So just watch this video, take down each country, come up with the borders for me, thanks.

    Just giving you shit, British Empire. If you look around (or I can look later on) you'll be able to find a Qbam (that map) with all the first level divisions. States, provinces, cantons, whatever. Then you can just highlight out the ones you want with the color change tool. Or at least watch the video yourself and list them all out or something.

    Where can we find that? Like your link to "another version map," but with out the coloring. I would also need to be able to zoom in further to be able to get the mouse pointer into some of the provinces/states--like the size here: https://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showthread.php?p=11684223.

    I could do that, but it would take a long time and I can't promise that I'll actually get around to it considering how busy I am.

    A quick question for you: the QBAM you posted (with country borders but nothing else) is outdated and has very thick border lines for some reason.

    Shall I use that one anyway, or should I use a similar but more up-to-date like this one?

    Why are you acting this way when we're doing this for you for free? You come in here, demand we make a map for you, then give us no prerogative to do so. From the way you've treated us mapmakers as people to do your random busywork, I don't see why you're continuing to act this way. Please chill.

    Given the lack of response, I'm just using the map you gave me originally.

    P.S. I came across a problem when making the map. The video gives two different countries of "Khalistan" (at 5:36) and "Punjab (Sikh)" (at 8:36). Khalistan refers to a proposed Punjabi Sikh independent state, typically covering the Indian state of Punjab but also occasionally covering a wider area. In the video, both of these states are given different variants of the Khalistan nationalist flag.

    I don't know how to put two different Sikh nationalist states with undefined borders on the map; it is possible that the uploader of that video made an error here. Am just putting one on for now, covering Indian Punjab; let me know if you intended something different.

    edit: also didn't know whether to make Balochistan just Pakistani Balochistan, or whether to include the Iranian and Afghan portions. In the end I included it all.

    edit2: Same problem with Kurdistan. which out of Basur, Bakur, Rojava, and Rojhilate do I include.
    And Palestine. 1948 border? Green Line? Gaza+areas A and B? One of the myriad West Bank partition proposals? With or without East Jerusalem? I'll just go for the 1948 borders

    edit3: nvm about Palestine, it's already on the map :noexpression:
    also, Asia is done! (apart from Kurdistan. Still deciding what to do about that one.)

    HERE IS MY CURRENT PROGRESS. AS YOU CAN SEE, ALL OF ASIA HAS BEEN COMPLETED. DOES THIS WORK SATISFY YOU, THE_BRITISH_EMPIRE?

    that's me done for tonight, will do some more another time.

    true... It is taking me a few hours to make this map. Main reason I'm doing it is because it's 5am and there is nothing else to do. :/
