Is there any particular reason why the region's founder, 'The Free Land of The IDU', has had its name and capital city removed from its former location on the map with that area now shown in the "unclaimed" colour?


(For reference, it was the area between the Bears, Malabra, and [nowadays] Lauchenoiria and Kerlile.)

It's on some versions of the map (i.e. the one with the timezones) but for some reason it doesn't show up on the main map file.

So no, no particular reason. The map has over 100 layers, I imagine it's just a visibility bug.

There's a version with timezones?
How do you reconcile that with your recent statement, in the 'Elephants and related species' thread elsewhere in this forum, that "I'm not putting longitude and latitude on the map"?
After all, the concepts of timezones and longitude are intrinsically linked: Presuming a 24-hour day (and taking the world on which the IDU exists to match Earth for matters like day-length & year-length is what we normally have done...), the default width for a one-hour timezone -- before nations start making local adjustments for political reasons -- is 1/24 of the planet's circumference which is (360/24 =15) degrees of longitude...

I can reconcile it because I'm the cartographer. People wanted timezones for more realistic RP so I put estimated timezones on the map going off best judgement - with the caveat they were rough estimations and for reference purposes.

There will be no latitude and longitude placed on the map because the map (and the size of the "planet" the IDU is on) may need to grow depending how active a region we become and I'm not placing limits on that because, by that time, nations will have established backstories and national canon based on km2, neighbouring countries etc. All of which would have to change if I have to add a new continent or two, for example.

Greetings,
I want to apply for a location on the map .

Nation: Eywaan
Location preferred: The island south of the southern tip of Sanctaria.

Thanks.
I can't render that island without it breaking the map, and I just don't have the time to spend to investigate it fully (there's hundreds of layers to the map, and each of those have like 4 or 5 or more sublayers!). Unfortunately you're like the third person to request it :(

Would you like anywhere else?

Both requests above are fine, and I'll add them to the map this weekend.

Ecclesiastical Dominions petitions for map recognition. If granted, this will be the only Gardavascan puppet making a map request. The preferred location would be the coastal areas to the northeast of Gardavasque along the narrow inlet separating the two nations stretching northwest to southeast, including the peninsula at the southernmost tip. Our proposal is included below, however, as relative newcomers to the IDU, we'll consider edits you may offer.
