World Map Thread
« on: 2012 05 31, 20:34:07 »
World maps will be posted here.
The latest world map:
20180306: http://blacraft.wikia.com/wiki/File:Blacraft_20180306_Regions.jpg (regions)
20180306: http://blacraft.wikia.com/wiki/File:Blacraft_20180306_States.jpg (states)

The latest isometric map:
20140403: http://zoom.it/X8IB

This is how the land divisions are organized:
States (white on the world map) can contain regions (or a single region) and are the largest divisions. States will usually have their own, isolated economy and trade with each other. Examples are the Union of Blacraft Socialist States (many regions) and Socialist State of Spheron (one region - Spheron Rilmu).

Regions (yellow on the world map) can contain municipalities. Regions usually have local governments which give permissions to build and do other things in the region, either a group or a single person. In the UBSR, regions can have their own collective storages which store excess public property, which are managed by regional governments.

Municipalities (red on the world map) are the smallest normal divisions. They're used to name areas, like Spawntown in Kaktoland. Some municipalities may be managed by people below a regional government, like Plaidania, which used to be managed by Darvince, in the region Yukiland, which is managed by Ventus.

Zones (orange) are territories inside The Battleground which battleground teams can claim and fight for. Each zone has a flag showing what team controls it, and during wars, the attacker must replace the defender's flag to claim the territory. Battles must be arranged - people are not allowed to interfere with other teams' zones outside arranged battles.

Copied from the Ubox thread.

Heres my ideas for the border redrawing and region naming. Tierra Salvaje is wildlands (wilderness, untamed wilds, you know) in Spanish. Initially I tried to make two separate areas with a border on the natural divide where you had origionally put the yellow line, but I couldn't think of a good way to name the two areas, so I just made them as one.

I don't think there should be a state for "The Emrate Steads of Testificate", but there can be a greater region containing that area and stretching further north and east to the other borders, and it could be called Enod Stead and be a part of the UBSR managed by you if you develop it.

South Riverfield, I assume is the municipality name and not a region name? If so, ok.

Abbreviations cannot be in municipality names, so in Old Amazonis, the municipalities would have to be "Aeridanish Old Amazonis" and "Bielosian Old Amazonis". Smjjames was thinking of using another name than Amazonis, so maybe you might want to call it something else than Old Amazonis though?

Smjjames approved, will hopefully be in the next map. I won't include the tentative names, though... I think.

I've kind of settled on and like Amazonis, so stick with that, and Jungle Cove will do unless someone has a better suggestion.

The tentative bit was just a note since I wasn't sure about keeping those names at that time.

Also, the testificate state is based on the idea of having the area around it be a neutral territory.

No South Riverfield is a region name :P

And okay, rename Old Amazonis to Chestnut Jungle and rename Aeridanish OA to Pig Shipyards

Bla this is the general blan of my region. You can just call it Darvwnse-a if you find the official name too long. Also if you find Ikxlaxwv wv Swmpkex too large of a municipality you can use the smaller ones too. I meant for Swmpkex and Ikxlaxwv to be the alternates, and the Ikxlaxwv wv Swmpkex is both Swmpkex and Ikxlaxwv is if you decide that it is small enough for a municipality/province.

[17:02]   Darvince   okbla
[17:02]   well the one with just ocean in it is the representation of swmpkex and ikxlaxwv together as one municipality
[17:03]   actually change it to ixklaxwv

New world map:

http://zoom.it/UhcU

So far I'll make a policy of only showing 5km from the center on the map, otherwise GIMP becomes extremely demused. Currently, there's nothing of interest outside 5km anyway. I could set the Borderguard limit to 5km, or I could just decide not to include those areas in the map I upload.
Quontex found a mushroom island... And I also spotted the edge of another mushroom island somewhere in the western ocean on the map.

Look at the map. I don't know the coordinates either, but if you go straight west from around the middle of the swamp that is just north of Kaeshar, you'll reach it eventually.

It's a kilometer+ from the nearest claimed land. Besides, it's just been discovered (recently anyway) and nobody has claimed it, so you're free to build what you wish.

I haven't heard anything about Quontex claiming the island. I explored the ocean out west, found those scattered islands, does that mean I claimed them? no.

Scattered islands are common, mushroom islands aren't. Idk how he would react if you built on it, but he discovered it, and you can see the edge of another mushroom island on the map. Use that one if you want to build if you don't want to ask Quontex. You can still visit the one Quontex discovered.

How come you're looking for one specifically? The mountains in Kaeshar may have previously been or contained an extreme mountain biome, or at least extreme hills.

I'm expanding my territory. Here's the map of where I am going to do so. If there seems to any overlap between my territory and Ninjaworld, then that is a mistake I made in photoshop.
Thank you and good day

Bong: Is that small territory in between for me? Thx, i'll claim it. Agree?

With all the new people, the risk of people stealing land I actually want was brought up to me. So, why not double the size of my territory?



CHANGES:
Everything in the above posts.
Warakimi is now Makobi.
New region, Verslest (Vers l'est; to east), Hecla becomes falaises extreme.
Multiple new Kaministiquia municipalities.

Might as well post this for Fiah.



Also, Bla if you read this before I bug you about it on Steam, there is an argument over the ownership of the last unclaimed stronghold. While it's not heated, most of us want you to take it.

Okay so. Since Darv hasn't done it yet, he joined Solea and Rift Auspikitan, and I'm not sure but I believe Naru agreed to give Auspikitan over to Darv/Solea and Rift Auspikitan.

Darv gave Plaidania to Naru. I asked Naru for some of Plaidania that I feel like is my own national territory. We agreed to this.



The new territory should be part of Motski.

So much things

Just remember not to claim territories where you haven't built anything. Claiming areas so that others can't claim them is also a somewhat bad idea I think, then we can quickly get the entire map claimed.

Nobody really wants that swamp to the north of Kaeshar anyway Bla. Plus the swamp area is kind of unofficially Kaeshar controlled, just making it official.

Also, a warning to you that an expansionist fervor is starting.

I heard some people were complaining about a peninsula they didn't colonize and Rocksolid now building on it.

If Rocksolid built on it, it's his. He's also a new player. Give him a chance to get a territory instead of trying to grab the entire world for yourself.

If people are getting egoistic on claiming land their claims will simply be ignored.

And "nobody wanting an area anyway" is not a valid reason to claim it. Smjjames, I don't have a problem with you taking the swamp, but you should at least find a use for it and utilize it instead of just claiming it. Someone else could find it useful in the future.

Jace8060 is just temporary to mark that he claimed the land. I don't know what he wants the region to be called, haven't even talked to him about it.
