    A WIP I'm currently working on. The writeup and annotations just keep going on at 6,535 words and counting. Questions and comment are much appreciated as they will help me come up with ideas?

    (hmm, this Turkey is a little bit weird... but they end in war with Germany at the end, so... And where is greater Israel? I know I know, probably everywhere, but I would still expect some special jewish state...)

    Yes, Turkey does fight the Axis eventually. Two Israels: Brandenburg and Madagascar.

    Sensible is up to your interpretation. This America is home to some nasty bunches of people and there was some enforcement of settlement after the drawing of the borders.

    1848 revolution victorious/1884 European union from here: https://www.alternatehistory.com/fo...s-that-didnt-happen-map-thread.317821/page-65
    There is united Germany, Italy and Poland, Hungarian (Hungaro-Romanian) French and Spanish republic and Greater Greece... not sure what with Balkan, if there should some sort of rump Ottoman... republic? or rather greater Serbo-bulgaria...
    Either way, there will be Russia as main opponent of republican Europe.

    @Gian Wonderful map! I can't put into words how awesome it is. Just two things I would change: If you could in the program you are using (I use Illustrator), try to put the lines with rounded endings. It doesn't deter much of the map except it is quite a large image and with a good monitor you can see the details quite close. The lakes tend to look kind of robotic... But that's just personal preference. The second thing is that it should be T.N. (which I asume means Territorio Nacional) de la Zona del Canal. In Spanish you almost never lack an article be it defined or undefined. San Luis Potosí lacks the graphical accent in the final "i" or it might be because of the river behind that I can't properly see it.

    That's all, just minute details though! :biggrin:

    I use Inkscape for all of my maps (including this one)

    As for the I in "Potosí", it's definitely the latter. I'll probably remove the spacing (and fix the acronym itself because it's supposed to be en español)
