Region Map

Post by Novum Urbem on Mon Dec 07, 2015 7:10 am

I don't know if this is the proper place for this or not but, I'd like to propose the creation of a regional map. Nations, which have created their own maps, can select areas on a provided map and have their nation placed in that location. Thoughts?

What if everyone starts drawing huge maps and claiming more and more land? They will just try to be bigger than the nation before them. Also, this can lead to rivalry between the Union members. We don't want anything like that to happen. But for the sake of roleplay I like this idea.

This map was pretty popular in one of my regions:

We could just give everyone a tract or two and be done.

Something like this would be useful but I imagine that many nations who have already built their own map would want to keep it. I really never considered the logistics. I just figured that we could throw up a blank map and then allow people to pick quadrants and whatnot.

I was looking around for a regional map. I think that LD's map would work very well. Having everyone draw then submit their own personal map would be far too much work.

Usually what would happen is each nation makes their personal maps out of the regional map, instead of the other way around.

I love the idea of a regional map. If anyone would make this happen, that would be awesome.

Bandua is a new member of our region, they arrived 4 days ago Smile !

Also, I support this idea and like LibDem's map. Maybe I'll write a bill for sometime in the near future, if someone else doesn't beat me to it... Smile

Ideas:

Each nation can apply to the MoD for a tract of land, specifying which one. The MoD subsequently grants them the land, after posting a notification a week in advance on the RMB. If during that week, another nation wishing to occupy that tract can protest, and someone (I haven't quite thought out who) rules in one nation's favour after some back and forth.

Each nation can have more than one tract of land.

Nations can customize the interior features of their tract(s).

Nations can invade other tracts (roleplay forum etc), under the supervision of the MoD who can intervene if things get out of hand, but there must always be other tracts available for exile governments who can, of course, try to take back their homeland.

Another possibility would be to have each war or dispute be settled by a treaty which both parties must sign before the definitive change of tracts is  made official. That way nations can't lose their homeland without consent, even if they, in roleplay, are forced to become the underground resistance in an occupied state.

Just ideas, it's surprisingly hard to make this work without making it prone to becoming obsolete, which is why the second idea for making war work seems to me to be better..

1. I can rule in the nation's favor 2. Can the map be in real-world

Yes, that would work, having the MoJ rule in case of dispute.

As to a real-world map, I'm not quite sure whether I would support that, because it could bring with it biases and cultural assumptions which might not be conducive to an inventive and imaginative roleplay.

I could be swayed on that last point though.

If we want a real-world map, I used one like this in another region:
http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

Also, we had the MoD make initial rulings, and the MoJ on appeal (or absence of MoD).

We also had the MoD "expand" territories biweekly so that everyone's land increased by two or three tracts periodically. Land could also be taken in small amounts through colonization, but that land had to be distant from the motherland. And, of course, RP could change land ownership too.

That real-world map is really cool too, LibDem. The continual expansion idea is interesting, but seems like it would end up by taking all the map, leaving no room for newcomers.

Of course, in response to that last point, we could add another planet every so often...

I too do think a map would be great for our region. However, I do not think that set expansions (say every three weeks) are good as well. Like Abdoa said, this could limit the interest of newcomers, as their space would be very limited after some time.

Also, I do not like the idea of having more than one planet, but that can be regulated by vote...

If any Senator or Minister would like to introduce a Bill on this, please do state so within one week, so that I can otherwise create a poll on our Regional Page.

Well, maybe we could have an opinion poll on the RMB?

Good idea, LibDem! We could ask people what their views are on the subject, and compare the answers.

Or just create an actual regional poll or two (in succession), because they would be non-binding anyways.

Proposal Map for LibDem and Aboda

Post by Sepharich on Sat Dec 03, 2016 2:24 am


We can section off areas of land and establish certain places for our land. If we use this map, may I have first dibs?

If we do use that map (which looks like someone crushed Africa and Eurasia together), we would need to create some smaller sections on it, because I could see that map getting very crowded very fast.

Also, we still have to deal with the interstellar nations.

Yes, the current roleplay has highlighted that... It's a bit of a connundrum.

Maybe we have one world map, where everyone has a piece of land, but they can also have territory off the map.

???

Also I concur with LibDem about the map proposed by Sepharich.

Even though I would prefer the real world map, this one is a pretty good map also

I will edit the map and add some more continent. For stellar nations, Such as Sirius Knight, I propose that they make their own maps for their own worlds.
