WIP Map Thread


WIP for a massive project, still a few weeks out. Using a new color scheme being worked on, but also using a few other schemes to fill in the gaps as that gets completed.
 
I am not someon who can say something about history of India (damn, Id probably use some help with it in my map above :D), but if that help... I like that map
Thanks. I'm glad you like it. I'm not sure I totally understood you though. Also, a few more specific questions. Would you say that there's too much text flying around in different directions? Should the river labels be smaller?

Well, Indus or Ganges are pretty big rivers, so big letters are probably ok :D
However, as I like those "curvy" texts into bows, shouldnt they be either all "curved" somehow or made all into straighter lines (as is "Bengal presidency", for example)? But maybe its not really issue.
Bigger problem with text could be colour - blue letters on blue background aren´t most reader-friendly options (surely it could work, maybe change shade a bit?)
 


I set this down for about a month (I was very busy being driven insane by quarantine and lack of work) but last night I finally went and finished up former New Spain.
 
Carrying from the ASB map thread, which are two maps of the American Mediterranean, here's the two Tibets in the same world as them, separated by the Jinsha River.

West Tibet, or the State of Tibet (capital: Lhasa), is a theocracy led by two monarchs: the Dalai Lama (XIV) and the Panchen Lama (XI). The nation is notorious for corruption since West Tibet is an absolute monarchy, but is largely peaceful with a minimal self defense force.

East Tibet, or the People's Republic of Tibet (capital: Barkam), is a socialist state, led by the Chairman of the Tibetan People's Congress (currently Xiang Qiu 尚秋). The nation used to be labelled as a Chinese Bantustan to deprive the Tibetans Chinese nationality (and the cities as well), but when China collapsed into three nations due to a Nationalist Russian invasion, East Tibet found an unlikely alliance with New Afrika, another nation founded by oppressed peoples.

Neither nation wishes to unite with the other due to perceived cultural differences. West Tibet sees East Tibet as godless bastards, while East Tibet does not want to be ruled by a theocratic government ruled by "reincarnated monks".
Further progress...

Oh, n

now i get it :D
But! I am pretty sure that that thing in north-west isn´t Europe, but enlarged Greenland and chunk of Canada. Europe, even if horribly disttorte, is kept in one piece, torn apart is Canada. Or so it seems to me
That seems to be Baffin Island, The big long one over Hudson Bay, or maybe another one of the Canadian Arctic Islands.
