    A long time ago i created a mars map. Sadly this was half of Q-bam Resolution (Instead of ~2500x5000, it was ~1300x2600)

    Today, i have upscaled it and over the course of some weeks i will try my best to make it Q-bam Compatible.

    Progress as of Writing:

    The thin line you see is the familiar Q-bam border 1px-thin, while the black lines you see are 4 times as big (upscaled 2x, so it's 4x now)

    I know this is my third threat on the forum already but i really wanted to do this sometime. When this is finished i will also upscale my Venus map, which was about the same size.

    If i make updates, i will write it down below VVV

    EDIT: MARS MAP DONE

    Someone's done this already.

    Just over a year ago XO Maenadicus made two Mars topographic maps that I'm pretty sure are QBAM compatible; the projection is wrong (Kavrayskiy VII), but seeing as the QBAM itself has is its own unique weird dodgy pseudo-Robinson projection I don't think it matters, while the scale is pretty dead-on (I double-checked and did the maths to confirm that quickly about a year ago, all part of a project that still has yet to see the light of day unfortunately).

    If you want to continue with this, by all means go ahead, its just a bit futile seeing as its all been done before.

    Thing is, it is already around third / half done and i don't want to scrap it. Also it has the same dimensions as conventional qbam maps, with the added bonus of looking like one (because of the color sheme)

    also i think this would be a good time to post an update

    Stuff in lime green is done. It is lime green so you can see it easier on the ocean

    If it's the same size as the QBAM, isn't it... not a QBAM, because it's not to scale?

    thing is that i prioritized consistency over real life scale

    This map seems relatively low-quality, judging by the... smooth squiggliness of it. Is Noctis Labyrinthus not underwater on this map?

    i only upscaled the map. didn't change anything else. however this makes it the largest (at least in pixel dimensions) mars qbam map

    it is mainly to be used for alternative history mars (duh)
