April 2022 Map Thread!
Alright, now let's really welcome you all to April and the actual new map! I have to admit, I decided on the April Fools thread when I first thought about posting the map on the 1st. Maybe I'll try something more creative next year. As for this map, there isn't anything special about this map other than update requests. I am toying with changes and an entirely new map format but that's a later in 2022 project release and because of that upgrades to this format are going to be slim!

A few changes that are puzzling and may need some explanation are:
  • Eastern Touyou has a lot of faded borders and nations, why? Between Tianlong and the Anti-State it's hard to know exactly what has been requested. Out of kindness for our dear administrator of the site (the man who keeps the lights on), a reservation is now visually on the map. These borders are not necessarily final though. This impacts Tianlong as well, although his borders are closer to their final form.
  • There is a new "British Isles" update of sorts. This impacted Scania by moving it northward, reforming Salen who was deleted and then brought back from the dead before the update, and also Prydain who was also deleted and then brought back from the dead as well. The new British Isles region is larger and hopefully gives the forum more space for RP that might be more thematically matched to this region. As a rule of thumb, pixels in this new area are going to be difficult to request. Prydain can edit his pixels a bit so he can fit his region a bit better, but space will be left over for new nations. It's not a perfect addition to be sure, but it does have a purpose since our main "British" nation is awol for a long time and will not be removed from the map.
  • Westernesse had a facelift, and has already been claimed! This wasn't not made in conjunction with the player, but rather a change made in hopes to make the region more attractive, and a player desiring the region immediately. -- There is still some open space there.
  • Galdea was deleted as part of the request of Caria. This was considered fine in my eyes due to that player's very prolonged absence, and month long period on the absence list.
Additionally, I've spent a good deal of time making wholesale changes to a lot of players in this update. This isn't any single player, and I'm not annoyed by anyone personally by this. I think a lot of players do this, and that's fine. So, I won't add any rules, but I do request that players spend a bit more time considering what they want to RP before making a map request. When I see a request, I often do it immediately or within a week to get it out of the way so the end of the month or near deadline period isn't a long grind. When I have to keep making changes, it's still a grind. So feel free to make new nations, add new cities or what have you... but for my health and peace of mind please make sure that is something that you really want before you request it. If you change your mind in a week, maybe you should've waited and kept playing in your wiki thread first. Thanks!

Lastly, I will start requiring RP to stay off of the absence thread. Simply logging in isn't enough anymore to claim activity! I do not believe it is difficult to post a paragraph or two in a domestic news thread once a month if one doesn't not have time or interest for anything else.

Someday Xen will bless us with something more official link wise, but for now, we meet pCloud.com servers again! -- pCloud.com did not treat me well on this upload, so it's possible I go host shopping again, but for now that is a trivial matter!

In regards to pCloud, many have complained about the links in the past saying they have to make an account! Nope! Not true! Make sure you read all the small print and if I remember right on mobile you have to click download. The the newest file is perhaps large for phones though, so if you have a data plan on your phone that you have to worry about, don't say I didn't warn you! The file size can be found next to the file.

To protect the fairness of our game, please make all requests for alteration to the map publicly. The Mapmaker will not make changes based on Discord, PM, Skype or any other private or offsite conversations. We will not accept requests forwarded anywhere other than official public map threads.

INACTIVITY & DISCLAIMER
Role play activity will prevent deletion from the map, there is no minimum activity needed to prevent removal as it is due to Mapmaker discretion, though an announcement of departure in the Absence Thread will excuse a drop off of activity. Prior to removal, the inactive player will usually be placed on the Inactivity Listing, allowing new players to assume their map spot should the player not return to in-character activity. The Mapmaker & Administration can remove, edit, add, or deny changes to the map based on existing rules or past lessons learned - clarification on the reasoning of these exceptional decisions can and will be given upon reasonable inquiry.

INACTIVITY LISTING
Please see the inactivity thread:

I don’t make the resource placement. That was done by the community in a separate thread. Eventually more resources will be displayed on the map based upon that thread. Not all resources are currently displayed, but that map is the official resource map. With that in mind, I don’t remember what else is there. I haven’t looked at that map in awhile. The next map update will likely have gold added though.

Nice work on this, Dravania looks perfect. Would love to know if it'd be possible to get a simplified map (3 color map with borders, land, and water only) but otherwise thanks for staying on top of all the things!

I'll see what I can do... April is a busy month for me with deadlines! At the worst, it'll be next month.

I would like to file a claim for the as an NPC to house the headquarters of the Association of Himyari States. It's planned to be neutral and business-minded (essentially the Himyari Singapore). Thanks!

Additional Major Cities and Locations : Cascalls (blue), Chiste (green), Laconi (dark red), Tertetu (purple), San Lawrenz (orange). If you could also name the island where Laconi and Tertetu are situated as Nuoria and where San Lawrenz is situated as Hamrun, it would be perfect. Could you also make Tibur look like a city state?

Yea, the area around Tibur should go ahead and be formally labeled as the Holy See.

Could you add Thoricus as a city in Caria, as indicated on the map? Thanks!

Also, could you please rename Pelasgia into Governorate General of Pelasgia (Caria), since it is a territory of Caria now? Thanks and sorry for any inconvenience!

I would like to replace Caria (in its current borders) with Rumelia.

Could you please rename the cities as follows?
Nauplia=Novigrad; Agios Georgios=Akova; Asprolimanon=Aspropol; Navarone=Knyazhansk; Thoricus=Dragonitsa; Krini=Kula; Neolcus=Keliya; Ambracia=Melikovo; Anaktora=Andravida; Sarantaporon=Vostitsa; Nikaia=Nikopol; Leopolis=Dimitsana; Malvasia=Malvasia (unchanged)

Also, please remove Pelasgia. If possible, please retain Propontis as a city state (the "Propontine Empire") to serve as the Orthodox Holy City--if that is not possible, Nauplia/Novigrad can fulfill that role.

Sorry for the changes and thanks in advance for all your work!

A slight addendum to this:

I would like to carve out a little city state for secondary RP from my existing territories. It would essentially consist of the little peninsula south of Krini, plus the islands of Pyrgoi and Hagios Georgios.

Location :- See map above (highlighted in orange/red)
Name of Country :- Ephesus
Capital :- Ephesus (city)
Location of Capital :- (see map)
Additional Major Cities and Locations :- Pyrgoi; Hagios Georgios (see map)

Thanks and sorry for all the changes requested! I promise I have a good RP in mind for this (with Vrijpoort inactive, someone has to be our Singapore).

After I spoke with davy, who wants to play a slavic nations, I decided to do some swapping, as I left Vitebsk and the slavic brotherly trio is dead, so he can go there, and instead of taking over the Italiote area with the Iberians I play with, I decided to move to Sollega's spot.

Location :- Sollega
Name of Country :- Ebria
Capital :- Valls
Location of Capital :- Miramir
Additional Major Cities and Locations :- Cascalls (Sargoza), Chiste (Kastrono), Adanero (Cardoza), Villanueva (Trajano). San Lawrenz (Callenza). Keep Amerida, La Compostela and Segovia.

Could you also please rename Alcanze to Hamrun and rename those ruins to Tartecia?

Please feel free to ignore all my map requests. Also, please feel free to green or remove any part of my country, if anybody wants to take up the space. Thanks, and sorry for any inconvenience.

So, after a bit of consideration, I would like to keep Pelasgia, but to alter it significantly. Please maintain the country as it is on the current map. Please also remove Caria from the map, and add Hagios Georgios to Pelasgia instead of Caria.

Thank you, and sorry for any inconvenience.

Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!
