Okay mapmakers, stop it with the Europe and world maps. Seriously. I love them just as much as the next guy, but we. Have. Enough. We don't need anymore. Take a look at this list. This is a list of all countries that still don't have a map. Read it over and get ideas from it.
Note: The list contains countries that do not have full maps of their own. For example, Gunz's 3.1k US map doesn't count as a US map because it doesn't feature the full US (Hawaii and Alaska missing). Nor does Nate's big North America count, since it features other countries as well. I'm talking about maps that are made up of 100% said country, and 100% of that country (if that makes sense). The full country; nothing more, nothing less.
Antigua and Barbuda Aruba
Bahamas (surprisingly. Figured we'd have one by now.) Bahrain Barbados Belize Botswana Brunei
Central African Republic Comoros Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Republic of the Cote d'Ivoire Curacao
Mali Marshall Islands Mauritania Mauritius Micronesia Moldova Morocco
Namibia Nauru New Zealand Niger
Palau Palestinian Territories Paraguay
Saint Kitts and Nevis Saint Lucia Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Saudi Arabia (this one is surprising too) Senegal Seychelles Sierra Leone Sint Maarten Solomon Islands South Korea Swaziland
United Arab Emirates United States (we technically have one map of the full US, but it's.....weird. I suggest someone redo it, maybe me if no one else volunteers) Uruguay Uzbekistan
I just named dozens of countries/nations/whatever that have no yet been honored with maps on WarLight. For Christ's sake people, we have a rug, a TV remote, Kate Upton, and at least two Nicolas Cage maps. Why are there no maps of these countries? And if you do still want to do the same old world or Europe map, make it unique. Make a Pacific projection Earth, a massive Europe diplomacy (Like Diplomacy World Huge, but Europe), or something else that we don't actually have yet. Mirror Earth, upside down Earth, anything. So many possibilities, yet we keep pumping out identical maps.
I, for one, will work to the best of my ability to have a map for every country published by the end of the year (obviously, I can't do this alone). This is more than doable if people will stop making more of the maps we already have and started making those listed. Who's with me? EQUALITY FOR ALL COUNTRIES
What I did was copied and pasted a list here, and then removed them from the list if I saw they had maps. Sometimes I was dumb and forgot to, even though I do remember seeing both Macedonia and multiple Greeces.
I don't see why every country needs a map. I agree that we have quite enough colossal (2000+ lands) maps in general though and that there are already very many maps of Europe (could use more of the world though).
Stop insulting Lionheart with your fake blind comments, his map looks like crap at this point since all maps look like crap at this point. You haven't seen at all what his aesthete or how the boni will be set up or how clear the Dhaka delta will be, maybe it will be awful. I doubt it, but calling his map good at this point is an insult.
Ginger King of FCC has a Saudi Arabia map in development.
As being one of the players who had made maps for a fair amount of time, this is the fourth time this topic come up. As far as I am concerned, the "world project" as it is called, will eventually happen naturally anyway. I doubt this thread will finish it as much as the last threads have not. But this project will see it's conclusion... one year.
Nauru and Seychelles already have a map. I started in March 2016 to make as much new real world maps as possible. I have made: Trinidad and Tobago (new real world map) Sao Tome and Principe (new real world map) Seychelles (new real world map) Canary Islands (no country) Balearic Islands (no country) Madagascar (new real world map) Papua New Guinea (new real world map) Indonesia (First Big map)
This month, I will publish a big map of Australia (1600+) I have made a list of maps I am planning to make this year: January: Australia (1600+) February: Oman (60-100) March: New Zealand (300-500) June: Solomon Islands (50-80) July: Canada (1000-2000)
