    Nice to see that you are working on this again! I really love the style, though maybe it's just me but I get more of a dieselpunk feeling from it than steam… Probably the horizontal lines in the oceans, they give an art deco look to the map. But please don't change them, it's awesome I agree with Max's points too.

    Thanks!

    About the borders, I'll give them a look to see how to fix it (you are refering to the red lines between the borders or to the coloured inner sides?). And I agree about the names; I was being a bit lazy and adding them on straight lines to see how the fonts looked, but I should get working on the curvilineous applications!

    Hah, thanks! That actually might be correct; to be completely honest, I'm just throwing stuff at the walls here and seeing what sticks. Never had much of a good eye for stylistic design!

    Thank you very much. Time-wise, drawing the thing itself is rather quick (the coloured borders are all done through layer effects, so I just hard-paint the territory of a nation and apply the style, which saves a lot of work and makes changes very easy); it's the research and constant fixing of the territories that takes a lot of time. Since the map depicts an alternate version of the world in 1883 -a year that's not well documented cartographically, since it's sandwiched between other more important events, like the Treaty of Berlin of 1884-, getting the borders to be properly historical (and ahistorical, of course) is quite the challenge.
