Yes I'm finally back, after all these days, although I have break my promise to not to come back.
But I'm delighted to see you all again, it was 4 months ago!

Good where should I begin ? Oh yes. My computer crashed and I lost my recent data svgs.... but thanks to a friend I have been couraged to work again, courage and discipline.

My grand arte 'penguins' is finally compressed to 1,8k and succeeded in size. Splendid!
Now my faith is restored, I'll work again as usual.I'm glad!

Starting of to continue my biggest project: https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=33360
Penguins will dominate as none other than a big world diplomacy map with over 2300 territories!
Before you start to complain I'll say that those holes actually are there for a reason, I'll tell you later.

Sincerely,
The pope

I derrived the name from a junk site on the internet: http://www.penguinrepublic.info/home.html they claim to posses a republic on Antarctica with the only habitants being pinguins. I read an article on that site where it was said the penguins will rule the earth one day in the near future. I found it quite funny and so I changed the name of my map.

I suppose it is a new trend now on Warlight to create big maps but I projected this map more than a year ago and the fact that this map has an incredible size proves that this really stands off from the others.

Thank you. You sure know a lot of Russia and its former clays. I think I just have some kind of weird addict to romanize every name to their best pronounciation I like.

If you have some more recommendations to change the colour of some nations, don't be afraid to post.I'm all ears. You see that I really fail at colour matching.

Sure, I will.

Here are some more:

Odessa -> Odesa
Kiev -> Kyiv
Ivano Frankivsk -> Ivano-Frankivsk
Dobruja -> Dobrogea

Socotra belongs to Yemen, not Somalia.

Rhodes Island -> Dodecanese Islands
Uralsk -> Oral
Aleutian Islands look weird - also they should be much closer to Commander Island.
Jeju-do Island -> Jeju Island

Also, your colours seem fine enough - I'm not expert in those things.

@The Raptor
You don't have to see working connections yet, this map is under preparation. Making line connections will be the last step.

@Жұқтыру
Odessa,Dobruja and Kiev are translated correctly in their English names. There's no change needed at all.

Jejudo or Jeju are both synonyms for the same island, again no change needed.

Dodecanese Islands,Ivano-Frankivsk and Oral seem better.

I totally forgot about Socotra. Auletian islands will be given a new place.

Thank you for your support.

Odessa, Dobruja and Kiev are all right, but the more correct names are Odesa and Kyiv (Ukrainian names). Also, Dobruja is the name of a town, I think; Dobrogea is the region.

Also, Jejudo is used to refer to the Do that the province is, not the island itself.

All names are converted to their English names because WL is an english speaking community. It would be confusing if they're all written in their own native language. Changing Brussels to Bruxelles, Lisbon to Lisboa , ... would confuse the main English speaking community.
forget Las Malvinas, they're the Falklands now chap.

Edit: I really sound like a British nationalist, now I have to do is vote on UKIP and spit at the EU policy.

Yeah, I agree to that, too, but Odesa and Kyiv are also standard right names for the cities.

Just one thing I'd like to point out about Brazil's northeastern coast, particularly the state of Bahia:



The selected territory is named "Salvador". The one directly below it is named "Itabuna", and below that, there is Ilhéus. The only one actually accurate is Ilhéus there. The red circle shows Salvador's actual location, the purple circle shows Itabuna's and the dark green one shows Ilhéus.

So... This region did get quite innacurate and messy.

Otherwise... Weird name, but interesting map, very well detailed ^^

You still haven't fixed what I said. Odessa and Kiev work, but Kaxgar and Karil are downright wrong.

Also,

Baki -> Baku

Maybe...

I totally forgot about your post, Жұқтыру. I was in hurry yesteryday.
Let's see....
Kaxgar or Kashgar is the English variant of the Chinese city Kashi and is technically correct.

Karil is a spelling mistake which should be repaired.

Baki is Turkish for Baku and should be changed to its English form.

Ok, I looked it up further, I guess Kaxgar works.

The actual Karelia is much bigger

Karelia -> Finnish Karelia

Also, it looks like Alaskan Bering Sea Islands includes St Lawrence Island. America is in the Eastern hemisphere, but Russia is in the Western Hemisphere as well.

No, Russia does not have territory in western hemisphere?
Please convince me with proof.

Also Karelia changed to Finnish Karelia thanks to your help.
