Are you talking to me or Mojo?
Your recent map put me in mind of L. Sprague de Camp's Viagen Interplanetarias series. There has been a nuclear war on earth, during the 20th Century that left Brazil as the superpower. Centuries later, they were exploring intersellar space, first with sleeper ships, then with slow FTL.
Cool! I've never read that one, though I'm a fan of de Camp's work.
I've also used it as the backdrop for my latest Ah.com the series episode, set in Utah.

It's not as good as Ed(T)'s... but then, whose are?... but here's my attempt at altering an existing map for my own devious purposes. It was a living nightmare with MS Paint, let me tell ya.
Well, that's the best non-EdT map I've ever seen, anyway! Well done, Diamond.
Where was the base map obtained?
Why is alt-Hudson Bay named for tungsten?
Wolfram is tungsten, not titanium, dumbass.
That's just what I said.
You edited it, though...
"Bah, I'm too busy trying to remember the high and low spin configuration of the t2g* orbitals of the transition metals to remember minor irrelevant details like what they're called!" he blustered unconvincingly.

Oops, I mean, from a Google image search for 'maps-north-america'.
Because I was reading a book that had a character with that name, and I thought it sounded cool, smartass.
I have a new, shiny blank map of North America for you guys to edit. I got it from MBarry's topic 'Maps Maps Maps' in the Help and Feedback forum. However, I made some changes, because his original .png map was quite difficult to deal with, and the borders were not a solid color, so if a dark color was filled in, it would look crappy. So I painstakingly converted it to a .gif and made the borders nice, solid, black lines; easier to work with. Here ya go!
Oh, and nice map Diamond.
yay! this is what i have been looking for!!!! now my DoD maps will be complete!
Yeah but... Yeah!!
Greetings and salutations.
Here's another - the world from Philip Jose Farmer's "Two Haws From Earth."
India has yet to collide with Asia, and most of the Americas are under water, with the result that the Amerind people went west, rather disrupting the migrations of the Indo-Europeans and other OTL ethnicites (and oddly enough, maintaining some of the same tribal identities as OTL. Note the Iriquoi-like Hotino-etc., and the Itskapintik are Aztec-equivalents.)
It's a bit ASB (the protagonist himself suspects that the world may have been deliberately settled with people from other TLs, long ago). Europe is colder than OTL due to the effects on the Atlantic current: white areas are largely uninhabited due to glacial conditions.
Diamond: Instead of Nuova Istria, perhaps it should be called San Marco?
Dammn! That should be "Two Hawks ", of course.
Very...interesting map...especially Finnish Japan.
