the words, bummer on the switch, I going to miss the previous one, but keep up the good work.
Also north China and middle... Hindustan are pretty big... what about divided Egypt? F*ck Menej, make Lower Land great again!
Plata now has 32 provinces. Now on to Peru, Bogota, Brasil, Mexico, and North America. I guess I'll also do New Holland. Then, maybe just maybe, China,India and South Africa.
Progress on my Patriotpunk sequel map. The world is collapsing here. The legend is kept from the previous map.
Hungary in 1891 again - Previous post
Alright, so I improved the water a bit. This time it was a part of the render, while before it was added in post. Lemme know what you think about that.
I also added cities and marked capitals. Currently, all the capitals have the same style, implying Zagreb had the same status as Vienna. Gonna work on that. Right now most of the cities are in their native language and not translated into German. I will work on that.
To further spice up the background a bit I've added graticule numbers all around Hungary. It still feels empty and im not sure about what more to add, any suggestions?
The elephant in the room is, of course, the new land gradient. In my previous post, I stated that I wanted to make it look like the relief was coming out of the paper instead of floating above it. I think I've managed to implement that effect pretty nicely. Compare the smooth transition from the Croatia-Slavonian - Hungarian border with the harsh and jagged mountainous Romania-Hungary border.
To-do is probably to make another render. This time I want to add some margins where I can put a scale, title, and other info. I'll also see what I can do about the relief material. Making at least the lower levels look more like paper would make the transition even smoother.
Added rivers to Hungary. Adding them to the rest of the map is probably out of the question since they look too much like the national borders.
My next steps are probably adding national boundaries as well as maybe adding the internal subdivisions of Hungary.
The Latin Commonwealth - an island of democracy surrounded by the crumbling West, led by the United Kingdom of Italy.
I have done next to no work on this map in the two weeks since I posted the above, a damned shame as I still really like the scenario. But hey, life happens.
I am not sure how it manages to be an island of democracy with all those colonies, but it does look purty.
The Provinces of the Kingdom of North America(before the North Atlantic War). I still need to work out the northern territories. I've actually named a couple.
New Albion. I think this is enough of a cliche to know where it is.
The OTL Atlantic Provinces are joined as a single province called Newfoundland.
Quebec was never French, so it gets the name Drakesylvania (This is a in-joke to a show I watch.) Founded by Donald Drake. Is currently being run by his descendant, Lydia Drake with help from her niece, Mavis Drake.
What's left of OTL Ontario gets the name Gloriana.
One of the others get called Wellington.
Also, this place, though a Kingdom, has more of OTL USA's culture than Canada's. It's super protestant and has (had) the capital of the whole place at Boston. It can also be pretty puritan in it's values at times.
How is the progress on your series of poorly explained wanks?
It's going well. I have drawn the internal borders of several areas and still have to do some more. Still quite some time before I can get to the real fun part of drawing the legend.
Sorry, I meant to say @B_Munro.
don't worry, this will make sense one day, also I have no clue how the rest of the world except for oceania will be when it's finished
My wanks? Well, have two more maps to go on the latest installment: South Africa and Syria.
OK, that maybe wasn´t that good idea after all
This might be of use
What about Spain and South Sudan?
Already done. I don't necessarily finish these off in strict alphabetical order.
Oh, thanks! I may use it for hypotetical sequel
(white dpes not represent, necesarily, ice here, but just "blank spots on the map", here be monsters etc. ...)
