    I'm done with some of the stuff I said I was going to do so I'm just looking for new stuff to fix up, preferably coastlines so I can improve the historical changelog. Which coastlines are most urgently in need of patching (besides Norway)?

    I guess South America, Western Africa, eastern Australia, Siberia and Canada the Pacific shore of the US and Mexico.

    Where might I find a QBAM patch for Greece? I'm working on a world map circa 1400, but I've run into a problem with the Cyclades.

    EDIT: Never anyone mind that last question. Turns out my basemap is a little out of date, and thanks to this thread, I've found all of the relevant patches.

    What exactly is "Put Point?" I've tried researching it, but nothing relevant comes up. It's on none of my maps, either.

    TLDR; Campeche, Quintana Roo and Yucatán states in Mexico Have different coords where to put their border because of some miscalculations in the creation of the states, seen clearly here, here and here (grey areas denote "zone in controversy caused by dispute of statal boundaries")
    Edit: found another similar, but I think kinda worse dispute in the same country: details (in Spanish tho, too long for me to translate, but I think it goes like a municipality that kinda doesn't exist)

    Ah. I was actually looking for a physical Put Point, like a new coastal feature.

    I swear, when I first got into alternate history, I found a reservation Qbam, but I cannot for the life of me find it anywhere

    There are a few of them floating around. I posted one I worked on at some point, but it borrowed in from other efforts and probably is inaccurate or at least could be improved by more seasoned mapmakers. Mine had other, unrelated stuff going on, but here it is again. balconus.png

    Patched the coast from the St. John's river in Florida to the furthest western boundary of U.S and Mexico down to Panama, did a patch on first levels for El Salvador, second levels for Belize, and a couple easy patches for some of the second levels in Honduras and Guatemala, just to get the ball rolling

    @Drex , do you have the QBAM basemap on your DeviantArt account with nation colours for OTL 2019?

    Do we have Q-BAM with longitude and latitude grid?

    Nop, but it's an interesting concept.

    Just remove the Gambia, Swaziland, Lesotho and Rwanda since they are done; the Netherlands (maybe also Burundi and Bhutan), because I don't think any secondary subdivisions fit; and Libya and Botswana since no remotely updated map has been found for Botswana and no available map has even been found for the baladiyat of Libya. Also maybe the glacierless zones in Antarctica and some broken antarctic ice shelf zones need to be updated

    Here is a small patch for the China-Tajikistan border. In 2011 Tajikistan gave the PRC about a thousand square kilometers of land in return for the PRC renunciating its claims to the rest of Gorno-Badakhshan.

    Another tiny fix, this time to the Kermadec Islands. I'd wager a good deal that I know more about these islands than most people know their lovers.

    Patched the coast of South America from Panama all the way to Tierra del Fuego.

    Hey guys, I want to change the internal borders of French Guiana, since that yellow looks weird and can be hard to see.

    Maybe something like this?
