    This thread is for the discussion of the M-BAM map that will be larger and more detailed that its Q-BAM Parent map.

    M-BAM Status

    Right now we are in the early stages of development as we are doing the Low Countries of Europe(The Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg). Objectives of the map include showing more detail with borders, showing districts within country capitals, showing third level administrative borders. Here is where we are now.

    M-BAM Setup

    The M-BAM will not come together all once instead there will be different regions that will be worked on by different people. Right now we have people working on Western Europe, Northern Europe, Southern Europe and Middle Africa. So there is more than enough room for everyone to help just please say so in the thread. This picture is a example of the regions we are doing and they are subject to change as the difficulty may be higher for other countries

    No. Nothing less than a full scale map. :p:D And then we take it... to the third dimension!

    The reason it is 9 times as big is because i am taking each pixel from the Q-BAM and making it 9 pixels. I am not trying to make the map too big.

    so this is my first try to the full dutch coast-line i think it looks good from this far out but when we zoom in i think it needs (like Belguim) a lot of improvements...

    My god your border work is amazing and i am extra happy that you were able to fit the third level admin units to fit. As a note if we get where the only way to display a district is by one pixel should we have a different color to denote it for people.
