Re: EXCITING DEVELOPMENTS : OFFICIAL MAP 2019

EXCITING DEVELOPMENTS
To be introduced sometime (hopefully soon)


I've figured out a way to include "layers" into the map, which would allow people to show individual or combinations of layers, including cities, national boundaries, names, etc. This will work similarly to Google Earth, where you have the option to see labels and boundaries and geographical features.

However, with this said, it may be a while until it is implemented fully. This has been my main focus on the map since it started, and I've run into many hiccups along the way. I'm thankful to say that I think I've discovered a way to implement it in a useful, non-glitchy way.

In addition to these layers, there will be one that will allow for latitudes and longitudes, which will help Bears Armed better determine climate, flora and fauna and other ecosystem-jargen for people who so wish for his help! It will also allow for people to make more realistic determinations to their nation's size, populations, etc. Very helpful tool indeed!

Also in addition, in my favorite feature to the map, there will be icons that, when pressed, will show basic stats for each nation on the map! For example, a logo will appear over Zamastan that will show the following:
- Zamastan's flag
- the name of the nation (The Imperial Republic of Zamastan)
- the population of the nation (103,000,000)
- the head of state (as of now, President Foley Sakzi)
Any other additions may include a brief description of the nation, its culture, climate, landscape, etc.!

I appreciate the positive feedback and patience the large majority of this community has showed me and Gardavasque in this process! As always, any additions you'd like added to your nation, or any requests, questions, concerns, critiques, etc, please feel free to place them here.

I hope these new additions will blend smoothly into the map! I'm excited to see what you all think when they are implemented fully.

Again, there may be a prolonged wait to this reveal as I figure out all the kinks, but as always, I appreciate the patience.

Update for estimated wait on the updates above: Early February is the *hopeful* release date of these developments!

Also in update - I'm adding three nations south of Zamastan that will serve as the completion of my "puppets", as they are critical to my nation's history. They are East and West Chanchajilla, and Paraboca. They serve alongside my only "official" puppet, Rio Palito. This will be the limit of my puppets (4), as per map guidelines that Gardavasque and I set.

Cadair here, I realized today that I had no puppet nation,.... so I created a puppet nation. If I could get it put on the map I'd appreciate it.

NATION: Tinten

CAPITOL: Fulda

If I could be placed on the South-West Continent on the River delta on the South Eastern side of the continent I'd appreciate it. TY

Can we place a second of my puppets on the map? If so, then I'd like LionsAndTigersAndBears, although under the name of 'The Wild Forest' to be on Catica occupying an area from southern end of United New England's lands (right across the base of that peninsula, from sea to sea) eastwards as far as 'Lake Omi', extending a reasonable distance inland from the coast but excluding the smaller peninsula just east of UNE. Its capital, the Emerald city, would be a little way inland, and would be about halfway between that smaller peninsula and the section of coast closest to Rio Palito,

(The presence of this nation across the base of UNE's peninsula would help to explain how that peninsula was still uninhabited by humans when the New Englanders discovered it, and also would provide enough additional range to support viable populations of various species & genera which occur on that peninsula even if no other nations on this continent want those same life-forms...)

I have upgraded the map. Hopefully it looks fine. If not, let me know and I can do my best to accommodate what is reasonable. I left part of the coastline to the east of UNE below that other peninsula open because of a requested spot via telegram that has not been officially submitted onto this thread. If you need more coastline, I might be able to accommodate additional space in that area, otherwise, I can give the Wild Forest more space to the western coast.

I also like the name for the capital. It shares name with a major city in my nation: https://www.theidu.us/wiki/Emerald

Thank you for placing it... and for explaining about the coastal strip. I'd already looked at the map before I came here, and was wondering about that point. I'm basically fine with it like it is, as long as whoever gets that area doesn't try too hard to push inland, but with that territory between Emerald City and the coast please could Emerald City be moved slightly further inland? it should probably be about as far from that border as that border is from the sea.

The city's name is a 'Wizard of Oz' reference. The nation name 'LionsAndTigersAndBears' (although the original source had breaks between those words, which the shorter limit on name length back when I created the nation meant that I had to omit here...) and the motto combine to form a quotation from the 1939 film version, and its national animal, the 'Jitterbug' appeared in a musical scene that was written & filmed for that production but wasn't included in the final 'print' released to cinemas. (I've seen that scene, in a documentary about the film...)

I will be updating the capital's location as per your request, and will also adjust the nation's territory. The shoreline is now yours due to new developments, and the peninsula is going to be a protectorate of the islands of Ruskayn.

Hi, can I have the area roughly around Serriel for my puppet of Iskiram, on the west side of the map?

Gotcha! Thanks for the additional details via discord. Much appreciated, and many welcomes to your puppet!
