    Go for it. The reason that I didn’t put them in when I did it before was because in the US especially the municipalities are mostly eldritch horrors that cannot possibly be mapped with any accuracy at this scale. The northeast is relatively tame, but the rest of the country not so much

    What does one need to make maps for this project? I want to collaborate and I don't know what you guys are using to get subdivision borders and such.

    I'd absolutely be willing to do Hawaii's municipalities if no one has done them yet.

    I went on Wikipedia, only France has fifth and sixth administrative divisions

    Also, in the VT-Bam templates in the Zip file, red lines means first level, yellow lines means second level, green lines means third level, blue lines means fourth level, violet lines means fifth level?

    Wait, so there is first, second, third, fourth level, that's it? When do we regard fifth and sixth level?

    Sorry for the late reply, yes that is correct for the vast majority of the overlays, the newer ones go red-blue-green-yellow-violet instead
    And Wikipedia have five or more division levels listed for a number of countries (they just list multiple levels in the last box), it is generally extremely difficult to actually get data on these levels however.

    I could only find Myanmar, Pakistan, France for 5th level. Any nations other than France with 6th level? Any more 5th level countries? Any nations with 7th level and beyond?

    When I've actually had the time to properly research my answer, yes
    There are a few countries with five levels of divisions, but it is true that three and four levels are more common (maybe two as well)
    It's often pretty difficult to find data on the lower levels, it's even difficult to find names for them in some cases
    In addition to the countries you listed I know that Belgium, Greece, and Morocco have fifth levels of some description, as do some parts of Germany
