    Grenada already was finished
    (Unless there's another island called Granada which could be the one I made)

    Some of the counties in NJ (those are the only ones I notice) look a bit strange, is that just the projection?

    Yeah, it's surely the projection...

    (Jk with that "Suuure..." voice. I think it's because many people know the counties only in their regional map version (in which the counties are near projectional 0 degree point) and not the Robinson/Q/MBAM projection...)

    Yeah, looking at them now that seems to be the case. By the way, thanks for doing so much with the M-BAM / V-BAM - especially with your Greater Germany TL - and I can't wait to see what you make next!

    Ucraine and Belarus are really extended on the east and both incorrect. [​IMG]

    Posibly so, but keep in mind the Qbam is also incorrect. So it provides a poor comparison.

    This means nothing. De-facto M-bam is enlarged Q-bam and their borders must match. Furthemore , even if the Q-bam is incorrect, we must prevent future errors. If we shall not do it, errors grow.
    I hope you have understood my awry English.

    Depends. Of course, M-BAM was created as an intent to have a larger qbam, but it also was created so there's a world map with the second level subdivisions (eG local government, county or Bezirk).
    I think everyone knows that Q-BAM has quite a lot mistakes and i think it also was an intent that MBAM would eliminate most of these mistakes.
    I think it's rather an attempt to remake QBAM by increasing the scale than a straight 3:1 copy of Q-BAM.

    Also, I think your English is quite good since we can fully understand it.
    It sounds a bit formal but I think that's usual for someone who hasn't been speaking English that long.

    Nobody can eliminate mistakes like that. It is possible only to increase their number.

    I don't think so. Indonesia for example had a whole area that was made wrongly by Q-BAM but I corrected it, for example.
    And in general i can say that maps are wrong in some degree. but that's only normal.

    How much bigger is the M-BAM than the Q-BAM, and are they the same projection?

    mbam is 3x bigger than qbam, by design. They are the same "projection", but that has caveats. Technically, they were both hand-drawn rather than projected, and both contain errors. ymmv.

    It's 9 times as many pixels, but 3 times as large

    Hi, everyone. I've got some time in the next week and would like to contribute. I've got my eye on the Bahamas, unless someone else is already working on that.

    [edit] Also, Block Island (part of Rhode Island) is missing. I posted once about that on the QBAM Improvement thread, but I was late to the party and it was mostly ignored. At this resolution, though, it's a big enough island that it really ought to be there.

    Fun fact: block island was existent on the old version of the eastern US, but was removed when I redraw the map to match MBAM standards. Gonna readd it.

    Small informational text: As English and Prestentation Exams are on April 5th-7th, I do a sort-of hiatus until that time. After that, we luckily have two weeks of holiday on which I will continue my work on the US, Australia, Spratly and the Guyanas. Although I'm normally a loner who does work by himself (which is also because if someone helps, everyone argues who gets more credit), I'll give China "free" for modification.
    In may there are the other, "not-so-critical"-exams and after that I'm basically completely free.
    So basically: I'm not away from this project and "KEEP OFF MEY PROPERTYY! Except for china do whatever ya want" (Imagine Old Geezer voice)

    --
    I think the next states I'm gonna redraw are Alaska, California and Texas since these are the largest.

    The Dniester National Park bought was missing, the one that makes Moldova Landlocked by 2km.
