    Maybe Slovenia is a rogue state like North Korea?

    I've been watching the thread for a while and you guys are doing an amazing job with the maps. I have noticed, though, a lack of a border between Landkreis Altkirchen and Westerwaldkreis in Rhineland-Palatinate.

    Can I ask if anyone considered doing vector maps instead of pixel/raster maps? I like the size and equirectangular projection of VT-BAM but it sucks that we can't do the whole world at once. Especially when you can use equirectangular maps as an overlay for google earth. You can open 8K-BAM in google earth, but there are still a lots of pre-napoleonic town-republics or even contemporary international/administrative borders that I can't show accurately. And opening seperately each of 72 tiles of VT-BAM in google earth is nightmare.

    Just wanted to know if there is someone here who would have the skills and willingness to do it. I have the will, but don't have the skills unfortunately.

    Are there any plans to include the Native American Reservations? Perhaps as an optional overlay?

    I think those would be an optional overlay.

    In other news, I've just found out how to open and manipulate large amounts of data from OpenStreetMap in QGIS, which will allow me to create new data, albeit rather slowly at the moment. So I'll finish off my claims in South America and then I'll switch tack a bit and see if I can't start adding in rivers to tiles.

    I once again (For the third time I think?) renounce my claim on Morocco. If anyone wants to do that, go ahead.

    I think this should be all up to date now:

    @tungsterismapping
    Anything that is coloured in has been finished/WIP, anything white is waiting to be done.

    Next up we have the updated version of Ghana.

    I'd like to claim what remains of India for once I've finished in Africa.
    I also semi-claim Niger and Nigeria to do a bit of tidying to the existing divisions.
