Awesome!! Always loved your TL, glad to see a detailled map!




Technically not alternate history but I'll move back onto doing that, just experiementing with styles. Been a while since I last posted a map. During this time, I've been learning QGIS and Blender to create better maps. Let me know if you have any feedback!
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

This map’s purpose is to provide a Scottish perspective of the isle of Great Britain. This is achieved through the use of Scots language, a south-east orientation, and a perspective at an angle of 35°.



Method…

1. Generating TIFF

a. Download relief data and merge into one file covering area.

b. Reproject TIFF and clip by extent.

c. Resample TIFF to a lower resolution to avoid noise when rendering.

d. Rescale TIFF to a much greater scale to avoid terracing.

i. Formula: “ReSampled TIFF” / 1250 x 65535

e. Translate TIFF to Unt16.

2. Generate High Resolution Base Image.

3. Import Base Image as the base colour of a plane and Translated TIFF into Blender with its colour corresponding to the displacement height of the plane’s material output (Midlevel 0.5 and Scale 0.1).

a. Angle camera at 35° for perspective.

4. Import rendered image into Inkscape to label.

5. Export as final image.

If it has one, a town in Britain will use its Scots placename. If not, it will be Scots-icised through this process…

· Placenames with the suffix ‘-ton’ changed to ‘-toun.’

· Placenames with the suffix ‘-pool’ changed to ‘-puil.’

· Placenames with the suffix ‘-ing’ changed to ‘-in.’

· Placenames with the suffix ‘-brough’ or ‘-borough’ changed to ‘-burgh.’

· Placenames with the ‘ar’ sound (i.e. Carlisle, Scarborough) changed to an ‘air’ sound.

· Placenames with the ‘ou’ sound (i.e. Plymouth, Portsmouth) changed to an ‘oo’ sound.

…going with the theme of the map of inversing the process of Anglicisation done in cartography by Scots-icising English placenames just as England-orientated maps Anglicise Scottish placenames. (All placenames in Scotland use their Scots placenames.)

God, i really love when people do perspective maps, a really beautiful one!

Also here's the map i made for the last Map Telephone game



"It’s a Bandal/Vandal (Romance North African) map of the alexandrine Roman Protectorate (Autoritu) of what is a continuation of the semi legendary Batembuzi (Temvuzi) kingdom, a kingdom which IRL is supposed to have existed in Uganda at the turn of the last millennium, before the Kitara Empire"
 
Hoping on the bandwagon, I now get to post my 3rd edition map for the telephone game. This has been sitting in on my computer for quite and while and I am happy I get to show it now! (Note not a French speaker so very likely many mistakes)

I'm a simple man. I see a map from this series, I click like.
I thank you for the praise, even though I am not sure I deserve it.


BTW my next idea is a world cup map or far more seriously an in-universe description of the relations between the Britannic Union and the United Kingdom-in-exile. Another idea is "what if this timelines World Wars (WW1 was different to ours despite me starting this timeline from a basemap of OTL 1914) ended differently. Not sure when exactly to set these maps however (also depending on when I decide to change from the original WW2 the end result could be way different. Most especially because Britannic Union entered the war late so there is at least three different things that can happen to them). I suppose about 20 years after the end of the war is a good time period to show however (with comparison to how that year looked in the original timeline). Depends on how much time I spend on my computer but one of these will probably happen by the weekend at the latest.

There's a problem on your map. 🙃
 
To jump on the bandwagon here is my map from the Telephone mapgame 3. Should hopefully be self-explanatory, done in the style of @B_Munro

Go check out the actual thread to see the rest of the fantastic maps done this round!

Here's my map of the map game, featuring the Upper coptic world, with the copts being the main colonizers of this world, with some important colonies being Demerētia (Australia, a merge of South Lands), and K'imerētia (Indonesia, a merge of Spice Lands)
