    Obviously the total Europe xP My computer would crash, though I am curious of how big the total world map can be :D

    giving on how large MBAM is and how it accords with VTBAM, I'd guess somewhere in the 45000-80000px range *shivers*

    Holy cow, it's enormous! I think that this map should be made of separed continents.
    By the way, Belgiƫ

    Here's the next part for you guys. As you can see, there are a couple places where data is inaccurate or otherwise absent, so if you could please add in internal bodies of water as you go that'd be awesome. I'm doing that for the Great Lakes of North America and others as I go.

    Well, excepting all lakes except Lake Constance.

    Quick Guidelines

    So what I'm thinking right now is to only do the first and second level internal divisions in order to finish out the map. And I think any river that is important enough to be included on Wikipedia should be included as well (which we can do later on) as well as any other internal body of water that is large enough to be more than just outline (so we have at least one water-blue pixel).

    Any other thoughts along the standard lines while I'm thinking about it?

    @VT45

    Can you export western Europe?

    I think that we shouldn't include very small lakes, but only the bigger ones. I don't want the map to become like swiss cheese xP

    Oh definitely not. Using your method of creating coastline borders and favouring putting them over water rather than land led to me being able to delete almost all the lakes from Pennsylvania because they were too small. I'll show you the before and after tonight.
