    Because I already made a map (two maps, actually) called VBAM. That's kinda like brand-stealing.

    So please put another letter before it. With M,Q and V being away you still have 23 left so why should it be so difficult?

    You already started a map.

    Why are you so stubborn about not changing a fucking letter that's already been used???

    Oh god guys, this doesn't matter.

    Just call them the VJ-BAM and VT-BAM if you have to create massive fucking maps most people will struggle to even load on their computers let alone actually edit.

    Because everyone here is like "uhh your map doesn't exist we're soo obsessed with the letter v". Why not just call it something else? It was 3 times the size of mbam, right? Then call it FY-BAM since several mappers have called an MBAM x3 a FYBAM.

    Can you link me to your map project called VBAM? Because I've never heard of it. If it's so far along as you say it is, I'll change my project's name.

    Here's the original VBAM. It's been discontinued due to several reasons.

    And this is the current progress of the new VBAM. It will Serve as an althist map on this exact graphic but it's intended to serve as a basemap as well.

    Is this the same resolution as the M-BAM?

    Nope. Both "VBAM 0.5" and VBAM(2) are somewhere around 3-4 times the scale of MBAM.

    By the way I don't think your project is bad not at all it's quite cool but it's just that I want to avoid later confusion and conflict :)

    So if that's the case, why not combine our forces rather than argue about names? Because mine is about 4.5-5 times the scale of the MBAM.

    I'm actually gonna rename my project to SBAM(ST15RM's BAM) which'll be 3x M-BAM

    Ah, this explains why I haven't seen you in a while in the M-BAM thread. Nothin against you, but I noticed you've been gone for a while.

    This entire argument is so far "inside baseball" that I can not begin to penetrate it (and, no, I have no desire to get a pocket Master's course in it).

    This one bit, however, is fairly simple.

    If someone else is already using the V-BAM (whatever the hell that is) title, it is reasonable that some other letter or letters be used.

    I REALLY suggest y'all settle this among yourselves, since you actually have the whole reality. I don't. Right now I see at least two members who are in violation of policy. If I have to come back in here, I'll deal with that situation based on what I see.

    Your call.

    I think that the X-BAM will be finished in 5 years as it is a public project. See you on the X-BAM thread!

    Well I'll continue soldiering on here. I can upload altitude maps for large areas pretty easily. It's adding in the borders and such that are time consuming for me, if anyone wants to help with that. And @Valdore Javorsky, I was serious when I proposed joining forces. I see no reason why we should be fighting against each other over this.
