    South Sudan does not control Kafia Kingi. Sudan does. Whomever controls a territory is given primacy over disputes. So this region remains Sudan's color, which on the X2/3 is RGB 135-80-49.

    What about the Blue Nile state of Sudan then?

    Ah, okay. I see what you mean now. You gotta explain things like that a bit better. If you say "Blue Nile state is wrong color" what I think is that there is supposed to a country along the Blue Nile, or that Sudan or South Sudan is another color on a different color scheme.

    Hey, could someone kindly make a map of Europe and northern Africa in 1796 using the SUCK color key? I'm currently making an election game starting in 1796, and I need an in-depth map of Europe at the time (roughly January 1, 1796). I'd greatly appreciate it!

    You might want to request this in the “QBAM Historical Map Thread” - this one is largely for developing the basemap itself and modern borders/subdivisions

    Erm, I believe Canada might need some extra working to do, particularly along the Prairies:

    Of these, Alberta seems readily doable, and is completed in the case of Census Divisions 15, 16, and 19.
    Saskatchewan and Manitoba are about as difficult as Norway.

    Also, perhaps we could draw the Whitehorse Census Subdivision of Yukon (that big territory in the southern part of the map)?

    Has anyone touched on Antarctica in recent? Also, I was thinking about some past QBAM maps that featured ocean floor topography, and I'm wondering if that is compatible with the current version.

    I don’t think anyone has touched Antarctica besides glaciers. It probably is capable of being added.

    Sorry to ask this dumb question, but I don't have the time to search through this thread. Does anyone know if there's a QBam map with the Arno and Rubicon rivers on it? I'm pretty sure I saw it once before.

    The current version doesn't have rivers, unfortunately. You have to draw on your own. Alternatively, you can ask the historical maps thread.

    Hello guys, I have been working in a definitive blank map for a while (if this is possible) and I have noticed that nobody has added the Rann of Kutch, I know that most of it is salt pan and marshes, but I think there are two lakes who has water all year, am I wrong? Should it be added to the base map? or better I remove it from my map?

    Question regarding Venezuela. There are borders that follow the Orinoco River that shift between provincial border and terrestrial border. I wanted to be clear that this is intentional and not a relic from the early days of the QBAM having an inconsistent color scheme. If the regions in question are intended to be wholly black, as to indicate larger sections of the river that could denote lakes, then the issue is moot. However, if the length of those borders is intended to be entirely the coloration of the provincial border, then I can make a quick change to that, as I am already working on something pertaining to the region.

    Since the river is quite wide in some places, and there are "lakes", those coastline-colored lines are actually meant to represent that. The same happens in other big rivers like the Amazon

    I figured as much. But I wanted to make sure of this before I wantonly recolored them without regard for their purpose for existing at all.

    I was wondering : what do you use to locate the positions of islands compared to the nearest coasts (for example France islands on Atlantic coast) or in the middle of the oceans (for example Cape Verde archipelago) ?
    I guess it's not Google Maps, isn't it ?

    Amazing map. Does anyone have this map, with those same internal borders, rivers, lakes and the coastal economic zones but blank?
    And if is not heretic to ask: Perhaps someone will have a larger resolution like 8k or 12k?

    By the way, do you think the Q-BAM is now more accurate than before with the correct position of islands and continents ?

    It seems you already have a discussion about this subject, so i just want have confirmation the problem was solved and everything will be fine for me

    Thank you

    Edit : Question answered, so don't pay attention to my message
