Application for a revived Remuria

Location : in red, include SRN and JST islands if they're zombies, if not zombies, then do not include
Name of Country : REMURIA
Capital :Augusta (formal: Emerita Augusta)
Location of Capital : edit: half way between Tibur and Inova, close to the coastline, but not on the coast

Additional Major Cities and Locations : Just leave the current cities in the spot as is, hey, free names already, makes job easier for me! And they sound Italianish enough to be kept in place.

As I understand the land around Tibur is off to the Pope, so drawn the border to the south. To be honest, it makes Tiburland seem like two blobs of an improper nature, but I don't know!

I struggle a bit to really see where the itsy bitsy Radilislands end and where unclaimed itsy bitsy ones begin, but overall no pretense over Radilislands.

Hi, I would like the ditch the DixieNatal in South Westernesse and return to the good old classic, the South African one. Thus, I would like to revive this old application:
Location : South West Himyar
Name of Country : Natal
Capital : Camp Hill
Location of Capital : Red Dot
Additional Major Cities and Locations : Muzu (blue dot), Blackmere (Green Dot), Harton (Yellow), Parow (Purple), Balaka (Cyan)

Can you also please add as NPCs, the nations of Mutamba (orange), with its capital Sigwe, and Loago (blue) with the capital Maseru?

EDIT: Decided against it for the time being. Also, could you keep VItebsk as it is on the map?

Updated the map application with a description on the location of Emerita Augusta.

For convenience, please use just Augusta.

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.
