Flat Map Edition THREE:- Official Map Thread

You must be registered for see images








Applying for a MAP SPOT :-

Location :-
Name of Country :-
Capital :-
Location of Capital :-
Additional Major Cities and Locations :-

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 IRC, PM, Skype or any other private or offsite conversations. The Mapmaker cannot and will not accept requests forwarded anywhere other than official public map threads.

COLONIES & CUSTOM ALTERATIONS

All applications to expand one’s map spot, either territorial annexation or colonial establishments, need in-character - role play activity to support them through this application process; this can be through war role play (annexations and colonialism) or through the general activity and progress of a national character, in-character, to justify applications (colonialism).

For colonial applications a link to the thread/s that establish the background and general out-of-character effort of the colony also need to be submitted; a post in the map thread detailing the colony, it's background and additional information, can be enough, though needing to be somewhat thorough.

If the alteration affects other nations/players, for example shared borders or abrupt proximity, then you must open a discussion or somehow get expressed approval for the map alteration from the affected player(s).

TOYOU - Eastern Continent - is presently restricted with respect to new applications. If that region is your desired location, for in-character cultural purposes, open an out-of-character thread in the appropriate forum for players to assist you.

Location :-
Name of Colony :-
Name of Colonial Capital :-
Name of Primary Country :-
Established History :-

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


Any and all nations on this listing can be removed and replaced by a new player upon request for a map spot :-

MAP COLOURING SYSTEM

Introducing alliance colours for the out-of-character presentation of the following alliances :- Rurikgrad Pact (red); Trier Concord (green); Council of the North (blue). Non-aligned nations are currently a grey-pink colour, and those nations that are non-aligned, but with overseas possession, are within the yellow bracket. The most civilised, progressive First Republic is orange (privilege).

This is a new colour system, and hopefully it will be an improvement on representing the in-character world for our out-of-character observations. To clarify, there is NO LONGER an inactivity colour.

I really like the new coloring system, especially with the current IC situation at hand. But, I think there should be some color variation with Bergenheim, Trivodnia, Ruthenia Galicia, and CBS. To me, and my ever limited sight due to some level of colorblindness and general poor sight, it looks like a grey blob for me.

Just my two cents but otherwise I love the concept

Very nice work on a handsome map. I appreciate the effort. (Oh, Azraq is over there, @Trivodnia . Whoops.)

I'd like to file an eventual request for the cities of Port Stanley so that they conform to the "In Farthest Himyar" story. Would it be possible to have a little more territory north of the lake, where Fort Smith could go? Oriel is at the southern extremity of the lake. Chinde can be moved down the coast so it's not all scrunched. But in the story, Oriel is at the headwaters and Chinde at the mouth of a river, and Oriel and Fort Smith are at the antipodes of the lake.

Preferably I'd like the whole spot next to Kadikistan (not just the circled area) but if that's not doable the circled area will do.

Agreed.

I didn't expect Gallega to be greened completely, and I've thought a lot about it...could I go ahead and claim the complete spot, all the way to the border with Serenierre?

Thanks!

I know Toyou is 'closed off' to new players but would it still be possible for Azraq (my second nation to those unaware) to have some of the smaller islands of Toyou-Implaria as colonies? It's pretty central to the concept. Can call them the Spice Islands.

Separately could the two islands to the north of Azraq proper be renamed to Tephanon and granted back to Pelasgia please?

Cheers

You did a very good job with the new map, Engellex. Thank you :)

One remark on the cities in my country. Actually, Trier is the only city with more than 2.5 million people. Bremen has 2 million inhabitants, but you could argue that Bremen-agglomeration (Bremen plus the cities directly bordering it) has more than 2.5 million people. Lübeck has 1.8 million inhabitants, but also here maybe Lübeck-agglomeration has more than 2.5 million inhabitants. This does not apply to Köln, Emden, Bergen and Aurich, however; these cities all have less than 2.5 million inhabitants, and their agglomerations have less than 2.5 million inhabitants as well.

Hi Engellex. Great map, as always. In the next update, can you make Loago and Cabaon a neutral colour and change Dun Eidyn to Kuressaare?

EDIT: Could you move Cabaon from its position, more to the east, to neighbour Azraq, like in this map?

The orange dot is Ajdir. If you have the necessary space, could you add the cities of Heh (blue dot on the coast), Kawa (purple dot) or Baki (lavender dot, close to Azraq border). All of them are under 2.5 million.

Anyway, could you please turn Köln, Emden, Bergen and Aurich into cities with less than 2.5 million inhabitants? :angel: Thank you in advance :)
