The Winkel-Tripel BAM project

Announcement + Teaser
Hello everyone! This is qazse here!

I would like to announce the Winkel-Tripel BAM, a brand-new basemap being made in the Winket Tripel projection! Winkel Tripel has always been one of my favourite projections, and I thought it was time to give the projection of Nat Geo some love.

I also noticed that essentially all of the currently available basemaps here are either the Worlda projection or equirectangular, so I hope this project inspires people to make more basemaps in different projections.

With that said, here's progress so far! Only Antarctica is complete for now, but I hope to have the shorelines complete by mid-April at the least.

You should cut off all of the unnecessary black around th3 edges.
Minor suggestion aside, I don't see this as particularly useful. We'vealready got the psuedo-Robinson maps (WorldA, Quarter-Bam, QBam, MBam), the XK-Bams (2K, 5K, 8K), and the EqualX maps; that's enough for me, and probably for most. But if you really need a Winkel-Tripel for your personal usage, by all means go ahead!
