Yeah, I'm honestly not sure how it happened. I haven't noticed any other spots yet, but the more eyes we have on it the better.

Edit: Split posts.

Can you point out which island you are referring to?

Nevermind found it, fixing it.

Edit: I've fixed it, but can we get some eyes going through and seeing if there are any other errors that need correcting before I reupload them again?

Well, here are some polar ice caps:



And thus the updated files:

GIMP

KMZ

Make sure you take a look at the polar ice cap in Google Earth and tell me how they look. Also still looking on input for the ocean regions.

Been playing around with the map on Google Earth and I've come to the realization that aren't really places on the map for a Suez/Panama Canal situation. That being said, the age of sail should be more fun because of all the random subcontinents strewn all over the place.

Oh! Also we never got around to drawing in the ice caps! We should probably do that while we have some time waiting for rules to exist...

Ideally, yes, but enclaves and exclaves don't play by those rules.

No, it's pretty common. People often try to use colors most associated with nations they are meant for. But since a lot of nation are associated with the same (or very similar) colors, it's usually the "important" ones that get the colors. I mean, how many times have you seen the USSR represented as red?

Well, I wouldn't say I'm surprised.

I really only go there for the maps. And they have some of the most detailed maps of Earth.

Really, it's best to use a combo of Google Earth and Wikipedia instead of a legend. Too many things going on when you make a map of the whole world.

Actually, that's where I got it. But it's the first time I've seen it with the EEZs included.

These are also from the same place, but no nifty EEZs: http://imgur.com/a/nh2Wn

Edit: The above series of map is one they call "Q-BAM." And I happened upon a thread where they are trying to make a version at 9x the resolution: https://www.alternatehistory.com/forum/threads/the-m-bam-main-thread.376181/

I spent a week in August in an unairconditioned house in Florida; it's like trying to sleep in a sauna with your clothes on.

Is there a key for the map somewhere? I want to know why there are different shades within some countries.

There is, but you're not going to like it...

I know this isn't about that site, but this seem like a good as place as any to have a general map topic. Because this map is amazing:



Probably going to want to open it up in a new tab, it's pretty large.

Dry heat is weird. You can be boiling hot in the sun and the you walk into a building's shadow and suddenly all the heat is gone, even if it's 100 degrees out.

Yeah but the Chinese have ramps now, so they'll be able to get extra points in the "performance" section of the contest!! Puny Amerifats only have catapults.

Well, having ramps on aircraft carriers is hardly new, in fact it's pretty common on light aircraft carriers: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Light_aircraft_carrier
