    @Drex BTW, my Southern Indian Ocean patch was off due to what I mistook as the Prime Meridian, so it should be removed the latest version. It just needs to be moved to the left a bit. The size and latitude are accurate.

    Hope you don't mind if I use the last one as a basemap

    Also patched the Lena River, it was awfully wrong. Yakutia's subdivisions are that bad aswell, but I'm not good enough to properly patch them.

    East Punjab Patch.
    I posted this because I have a question about the color scheme for India. Why are they fourth levels and not third levels?

    I have a question. Since this map has several dried lakebeds that have been deprived of water for thousands of years, would it not also make sense to showcase major shoreline changes since the beginning of the Holocene Era (about 10,000 BCE)? I'm especially thinking about the Black Sea, the Persian Gulf, and Doggerland, not to mention man-made land reclamation such as can be found in the Netherlands.

    EDIT: Also, would it not be possible for dried lakebed boundaries to present a different color? I'm thinking the best system would be (in RGB format):

    - Ocean/Lake (large bodies of standing water) = 180-220-224
    - Sea Ice = 217-133-247
    - River (no boundary) = 138-190-226
    - Former coastline (including dried lakes) = 202-219-231

    Not on this qbam, but definitely on another that would be devoted to those specific changes. The reason of this is because these dry lake-beds still exist in present day, whereas shoreline changes have often changed a lot over the course of thousands of years, and did not continue into the present day. So while I do like that idea, it shouldn't be on this specific qbam but perhaps on another.
    Regardless, you could probably post updates of that kind to here or the historical qbam thread.
