    Pitcairn Islands patch. The relative sizes of Pitcairn and Henderson were off. Ducie is also de jure claimed by the United States, as per the Guano Islands Act, although this has been considered dormant since America has never established a physical presence on the island to maintain its claim.

    -Fixed the border from Mongolia to Myanmar
    -Fixed the first and second levels of both
    -added third levels for both
    -added lakes in the Himalayas and patched some lakes in Xinjiang
    -patched the border disputes between China and India

    The map so far using the X3 color scheme.

    X3? Did @Ashtagon revise their scheme?

    It's pretty much the same as the X2, but contains colors for climatic and biome data. I came across it in the color algorithm files that @Ashtagon shared with me because she got tired of me asking if such-and-such a color could be used for Bougainville, finally telling me to look for it myself. I've been told that the X3 is "experimental," and that it likely would not be developed any further.

    EDIT: With regards to the map, I did cheat a tiny bit. I dropped down the national borders colors from the X2/X3 RGB 4-4-4 to the "special national borders" color of 17-17-17. This is to better help distinguish it from the coastline (0-0-0) and map edge (1-1-1). Trying to make life easy for editing, since that's kind of what is done on this thread.

    Fixed some islands off of the Australian east coast. There were two islands where Lord Howe Island is supposed to be, and nothing in the vicinity of Elizabeth and Middleton Reefs. I assume that whoever composed the previous version of this area simply merged the three.

    Curiously enough, the Deep South counties are not yet done

    It's just called the South, or Southern United States. Deep South refers to the five states that border the Gulf of Mexico. I should know, I'm from Mississippi and I now live in North Carolina.

    The CS abolished the county system in 1884 and replaced it with an unitary system for each state, what reality do you think you live in, huh?

    Mercator, if I'm not mistaken, with the meridian nominally somewhere near longitude 10E or 11E.

    i dont think mercator is like that. mercator would have bigger distortion than this

    It's not even close to Mercator. Q-BAM doesn't have an actual specific projection, IIRC it's a sort of hybrid between Robinson and Kavraisky VII but I might be wrong.

    I mixed up Mercator with Robinson. Sorry.

    On the other hand, I don't remember Q-BAM being of a hybrid projection.

    The projection the qbam uses, apparently. Why do you ask?
