Hello DSA. Our current maps are not original, or at least the outline of the land is not. Our base map comes from a video game called Ace Combat. To view that map, click on the link below.
Ace Combat Map
This map is used by many on NationStates, including the DSA. Over my time as the Director of Cartography, I have tried to work with this map in creating original maps of this map, with many good attempts like my climate map, drainage basin map, and more. However, I do not like how unoriginal it is to use the map of a video game. I find myself demotivated to create any new concepts of DSA maps with this map that is someone's work, someone else's world, a world used by many other regions (one region in particular that keeps sending me recruitment telegrams, which is annoying).
A few months ago, I stumbled upon a map I made when I was in 9th grade in high school. I wanted to transfer it to a digital space for safe keeping and then realized how terrible of a map it was. I started working on it and found it to become a map I am proud of. Then I kept going. I started making multiple maps of this world. Now, I propose this world to you.
I propose that these original maps become the new maps of the Democratic Socialist Assembly. However, I only propose this. Over the past week I have been talking with other members of the DSA about these maps and ways to improve them.
Now I show them here and put it to vote. We had a vote on if these should be trial-ran. That vote passed. Now we will have a final vote that will last 4 days as to if we want these maps to become permanent or to go back to the current maps.
