Alright, so here's a 1932 map with... puppet Egypt and Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, Honduras and Nicaragua shown as puppets rather than claims of US, Bermuda British (was shown as Canadian for some reason), French India shown properly colored (part of it was colored Portuguese), Oman showed as a puppet (it was shown as a British colony but wasn't technically a colony or protectorate) and the Oman enclave in Pakistan shown (it was colored uninhabited), the British line in south Arabia of influence (though I'm not actually sure if that was still a thing, I see it on older maps for the year but it was originally a thing with the Ottomans and I'm not sure if it was still a thing. Speaking of south Arabia, I am pretty sure some of those borders are supposed to be the undefined border but I am not entirely sure which) and an attempt at China.
I am somewhat curious at the different styles for French Morocco and Tunisia, where Tunisia has grey border and regular french blue outline and protectorate fill, while Morocco has black border and no regular french outline?

I did not even bother to implement any suggested changes to the actual color scheme in this map. Not because I am against your suggestions (and with your clarifications, I understand what you meant more now), but because it seems like the sort of thing where we should wait until there's more of a consensus and hear from other people. Or something like that. Also I just stuck with the simplest/quickest-to-do coloring styles for China and the warlords until we figure what to settle on
Also, I am wondering about your thread, so are the maps right at the start still out of date? And the youtube video of the warlord era more accurate? And do the other maps from 1939 to 1946 seem accurate in regards to China and the warlords?
And while I did try with China and think I got things approximately right and at least in the right direction, I can do stuff like splicing borders from other worlda maps or changing colors or relatively simple stuff like that, but am not really good at all at doing freehand from another map of a different projection or anything like that. So as for stuff like the Uighurs, Kyrgyz, and Tunganistan in the East Turkestan area, along with the Tibetans in west Sichuan area, and the Nationalist/Ma border (in the video, it looks like the Nationalist central government has part of south Gansu province as well?). Maybe someone else could do it better than I could?

Not sure if anyone needs it, but I updated the USSR to include the ASSRs
Also, in regards to this... I don't know if we need to show ASSRs on the regular map (I recall past discussion of this, with the idea if I remember correctly being that they weren't functionally really autonomous to the point where it mattered for our purposes, but maybe some people here would feel otherwise?) but regardless, it can be useful as a supplementary or something. I made this edit, which I think makes it more clear which SSRs the ASSRs are within, since they were not subdivisions at the same level of the SSRs but instead were contained within them
