National Map Service

Recommended Posts

So this is something @Orioni and I have been talking about this July, but I couldn't find a good moment to kickstart the project.

Well, now I've found it!

The National Map Service is just what it sounds like. You request a map, I do it. Please keep in mind that this is a pretty complex task and, believe me or not, I do have a real life aside from NS, so each map could take a few days/ weeks to make.
I only do maps for people who are on the map (makes sense, right?). If your nation will expand on the map after I have already done a map of your nation, I will update it, but it will have a lower priority than any other map jobs.

As an example of how those maps will look like here's mine. For those of you who know the maps I did before, you will notice that the colour pattern is different from my maps, that's because I adapted the pattern of our world map to make the whole thing more cohesive. If you prefer the older pattern, I can provide you with both patterns.

Patterns:

I don't like the dark grey in the first pattern, I have added it to compensate for the lack of a seventh overland colour, I might change that in the future.
My colour pattern was ripped straight out of my geography book. Nevertheless, I prefer Orioni's because it's the same as in the world map.

Comparison:

I hope that you like this idea, like the maps in general, etc. :) If you have any C&C feel free to post it here.

Greetings,

Great idea dude, really glad you're doing this. Your contribution to the community is always top and this goes above and beyond. Thank you.

I can send some references for Prymont over Discord if you'd like?

@Prymontsure, but as far as I have thought about it I will be overlaying a zoomed in version of the world map onto my template. But sure, send me the stuff you want to have inculded in the map. The more details the better.

Although I assume that you want to expand in the future, but I'd be happy to do a map for you anyways.

I have no experience with road and/or city maps, but I'd gladly do a map for you.

Maybe one showing both you and Mantella.

City map can be complex. Fortunately, there are some nice generators that help you get a long way towards the finish line. /cc @Cristina

I wouldn't necessarily call mine "beautiful". Was just a rough plotting to indicate major cities, ports and state boundaries.

Hey Thomas,

I'd just like to queue up behind Cristina and/or Synturia so I don't fall behind too much! No rush intended, I'm just saving a spot for reference :)

Dearest Map God,

In case this is still active and you find some time to work on maps, I'd like to ask for two simple maps (although I'm sure that what seems relatively simple to me will end up being an hell-spawn of labor). One simply being the outline of Variota (and preferably also Lukinagrad, as that'd remove any need of updating in the near future, just plant it down in one of those fun little boxes or something), blank in the middle (although, if possible, do include the locations of Grootwaterflakte and Ferrefaaierhafen). The other including the elevation, such as the world map has and preferably also including Lukinagrad and the locations of Grootwaterflakte and Ferrefaaierhafen.

I intend to use both maps as a base for things like the Variotan provinces and such (handy to have when the wiki is launched), so the only thing that's really important is that they're large images, like blow that sh*t up like an atom bomb. The larger they are, the easier it will be to use them (not to mention that it's generally easier to make images smaller without issues than making them bigger, cut bits out of large maps and what not). No rush or anything but I do need it in like an hour or so, maybe quicker if that's possible...

Yes, that was meant as a joke. I don't expect this to be done anytime soon so take your time, really.

    • PMN BREAKING NEWS Theodorian troops prepare their defences STANDOFF AT THEODORIAN BORDER AS REFUGEES ESCAPE Connor, Anderson. Today 44 refugees from the suppressed ethnic group, Charcentine escaped Theodoria via the last few travel coaches before the full travel ban is enacted. Theodorian authorities were first alerted when a sniffer dog found one group in the hold of a coach. Later Theodorian tanks rolled up to The Etherton Gateway, where they faced PyeMcGowian tanks on the other side of the border.  Futher escalation occurred as Theodorian fighters flew dangerously close to the border leading to the ABDS Anti Air System being activated as bombers flew directly at the border. This comes only weeks after the Anibyniaet Andirswn attacks on PyeMcGowan, which have been both directly and indirectly blamed on Theodoria, as it harbors the terrorist organisation. Theodoria and the AA have been revealed to hold power in companies such as TIA, Teluedu Iaeth Andirswn the group that controls Andersish language media and AEC, the Andersonian Extraction giant, who’s CEO was arrested for possession of unlicensed firearms and illegal explosives. The Ministry of Defence has said that they are closely monitoring the situation along with the Prime Minister and PyeMcGowian delegations across the world. PyeMcGowian markets have dropped today as a possible escalation could have easily taken place as the standoff enters the night. Yesterday the National Conflict Emergency Act was updated, to include the nationalisation of formerly state-owned Companies such as PyeMcGowian Airways And PyeMcGowian Petroleum, incase of all out war. Authorities have released a series of educational posters and videos on what to do incase of an invasion and aerial bombardment.  
    • Gaut'n Reep'n Statium wins EurthVision 2019 bidding contest The Golden Bars Stadium in Ferrefaaierhafen was officially named the winner of the bidding contest for the EurthVision 2019 contest, to be held by Nasionale TeleSicht Variota within Het Huisselant. Other contestants included the King Luka I Stadium in Lukinagrad, the Anita Vooters Stadium in Rooibes and the Gillofan III National Park near Grootwaterflakte. While the Gillofan III National Park would have held more visitors, almost double compared to the Golden Bars Stadium and over seven times that of the King Luka I Stadium, the technical limitations of the locations ensured it was quickly eliminated from the NTSV selection as the organisation wants to make sure all kinds of tricks are available to contestants of the EurthVision 2019 contest, including but not limited to pyrotechnics and optical illusions. Similarly, the King Luka I Stadium in Lukinagrad was quickly eliminated due to the small size of the stadium and the lack of a civilian airport, plans to increase a local airport to one capable of receiving civilian flights being realized as we type but not being deemed ready before the start of the contest. Rumors state that those in charge of assuring that the contest becomes a success deemed anything less than 40.000 capacity as too small, seeking to double the attendance numbers compared to the first EurthVision. Whether this was a genuine requirement or mere gossip remains unknown. The final bidding was between the Golden Bars Stadium, or Gaut'n Reep'n Statium in Variot, and the Anita Vooters Stadium. Regretfully for the Anita Vooters Stadium, Rooibes' municipal council denied giving out any permits to allow the EurthVision to be held there, stating that they were hesitant to allow such a large scale event to come to their city. Indeed, the city of Rooibes maintains a lower amount of hotels per capita than most touristic cities in Het Huisselant and it would have been doubtful if a significant number of visitors would have been able to stay in the city or even in the neighborhood of it, instead having to travel a large distance to visit the venue. The Gaut'n Reep'n Statium in Ferrefaaierhafen, venue for the EurthVision Song Contest 2019 Bringing together a large amount of corporate sponsors and groups willing to sponsor the event, the Gaut'n Reep'n Statium was able to claim victory. Official sponsors include Vooters Food Group, which will be providing food, drinks and personnel, Heerefal Casino Resorts, which will be providing special hotel packages for international and domestic fans and the East Variotan Association for Adult Entertainers and Actors, which will be providing last year's winner Hete Henk, taking part in security duties through their Folke Milisie and providing special packages for international fans seeking a taste of the real Huisselant. The most surprising of these sponsors is the narcotics store chain SnuifFuif, who claim that recent lowering of production costs has enabled them to provide free product to any person with a ticket to the EurthVision Song Contest. Nationale TeleSicht Variota has not yet revealed who will present the contest, although bookmakers are giving reasonable odds on Dina Diva and/or Hete Henk. Other possible names named include Filomedes Jonkheere, General of the Propaganda and Morale Force of the HAP, Cherry Vooters or Lantheere Sjaak fan Oliefaaier, although even the bookmakers are seeing that possibility as a long shot. What they were able to reveal, however, was that all 41.000 fans of the contest would be able to enjoy an entire array of effects during the contest, special technicians from NSTV and from the stadium itself ensuring that contestants will be able to go full out during their performance in the upcoming edition. Airlines such as Fleugels fan'es Huisselant, Nasionale Flieg Maatskappij Variota, Air Reierfer and Vooters Air have already declared to be willing to maintain additional flights during the period to enable all fans to fly in genuine Variotan fashion but reminded all international citizens about the need to apply for a visa in time. Embassies throughout the world and Het Apparath spokespeople have acknowledged the upcoming need; while only 41.000 will be able to enjoy the contest from within the stadium, it is rumored that many more will still be flying to Het Huisselant to enjoy the contest from within its host nation.
    • Greenhouse Emissions Make a New Record in Greater Serbia; Conversion to Orimulsion Cited as Concern The ecological administration within the Serbian bureaucracy has cited concerns over record-number greenhouse gas emissions, the top culprits being power plant conversions to coal and orimulsion, a bitumen fuel derived from Serbia's leftovers of crude oil reserves. In the past week petroleum corporations Naftna Srbija and Energetike Srbije have successfully made the conversions on their crude oil plants to orimulsion or coal. The fuel has been used for a week so far, and it is showing signs of producing higher smog levels in Subotica, Novi Sad, Nis, and Kragujevac. The Serbian government has ordered NS and ES to cease orimulsion services in Beograd, citing concerns over the beauty of the capital city. Instead clean coal will be used in the absence of orimulsion. Zones will be designated in the future over where orimulsion and coal power plants can be built, so as not to hurt fragile nature conservation sites. The effects of this newly used fuel will be studied more, however foreign scientists that haven't been relocated to their home countries following the Serbian Blockade of 2018 will be excluded from these emissions studies. The Department of Ecological Safety made a statement to accusations of collaborating with Serbia's oil and energy companies: "We are committed to protecting the beautiful Serbian landscape, and there are indeed legitimate scientific studies over concerns of CO2 emissions in development." It is projected that the blockader nations will spin this story in a negative way, making claims over hurting the environment and sending pollution to @Sayf. Zvezda News will reply to the foreign news agencies should developments be made. For now, Serbia is completely energy independent, in regards to power plants and electricity. Glory to Serbia! Only Unity Saves the Serbs.
