Gaea Occupied Land Map Thread

Post by ApolloVonSol on Tue Nov 01, 2011 8:03 am

Map is subject to change continually and may be outdated at any time.

All RED are Occupied Nations
Yellow are nations under Application

If you wish to occupy a land, please post a small image of the area you want to occupy for approval.

Unoccupied Land Names are not the final names, please feel free to change it, it was just a placeholder for others.

Due to already having some history set, nations next to occupied nations may already had set an neighboring nation history, please respect this and try to be close to this history if you still want to occupy said land.

Also remember, the map change is always in flux, so don't get mad if the land you want is already ocupied but doesn't show up on the occupied map picture. Your best shot would be to claim land in large swath of grey areas.

Please be reasonable and dont try to claim multiple lands to make a very large nation.

This is a Alternate Reality, so be creative, do something that may be out of the norm. Examples would be, an Arab nation being a democracy, Communist as the reigning power of the world, an Isolationist nation which refuse any access to any foreigners (Such as Japan pre WW1). Or partner up with a friend and have a vietnam style war with gurriella attacks across the borders.

Due to the large size, please click on the link.

Nice job Apollo. Smile

For some reason U-K is always shown incorrectly on World maps, extending further to the NW than shown. There are maps here and here to illustrate.

I'll provide an up to date map showing the location of Carpathian dependencies next week when I have more time. As mentioned on the SCJU thread there is some land in the bay to the south-east of Carpathia which hasn't been marked.



There are two major Carpathian dependencies in Orienta that people should be aware about. One is the Carpathian Protectorate of Siam, which is a nation that is partially isolationist in order to safeguard its traditions and values but has Carpathian Protectorate status as a result of history which will be detailed later. The second is Kowloon, which is loosely based on Hong Kong with some nice twists Smile

I'll get the locations up today hopefully.

No they aren't large, Kowloon is a little bit larger than RL Hong Kong and Siam is larger again, but nothing major.

For the simplicity, I just pasted over the continent picture since it changed a lot since that world map was made, so ignore the names for now, its just there to show you which land is occupied. Someone can create a comprehensive world map if they want.

This is Carpathia, I've also labelled Kowloon and Siam for reference. Carpathian Dependencies of significance have been also noted, there are smaller ones but they mainly consist of very very small islands in the oceans and I'll add those next week.

Updated Map with the 4 app. territories.

Also I wanted to add something I noticed,

Theres no Antartica or North Pole like continents, so our planet would be pretty hot without the ice to cool the seas. Should we add some or should we ignore this fact and pretend it still has an earth type of climate depise the lack of ice?

We have had periods where there was no land mass in the north or south pole, and did have ice caps. The caps will be there no matter what unless the climate is too warm. Perhaps the south will have something like the north, a seasonal migration of ice, and a permanent caps.

I think we are safe to assume we have frozen poles. Just not mapped yet, country landmasses were the priority at the time of map creation.

OMG there is loads of room lol

We're also going to have to give some unclaimed nations names and a basic background to their status if we are to roleplay properly. A few nations were previously claimed, named and a background given and I think for the meantime we should maintain those, at least their names and basic information until such a time where someone claims the land. So places like Canterbury, New Sealand and Nieuw Guinea to name just 3 should remain.

Thanks for updating the map to include the entire Nordic State! =)

For all people who don't know »» the Nordic State (Norden) is made up of Norden proper, Iceland, Bolvangar and Vinland Smile

new proposed map, nothing is changed except my continent is added. world is stretched to compensate. would this affect anybody?
Reason for change: Amagosa wants to implement his storyline into the northern territory i initially claimed. his storyline didnt fit into mine and talks didnt work out.

Are you aware that your nation would be frozen most of the year and an incredibly harsh climate that would make a modern sophisticated society very very difficult if not impossible?

I don't like that new landmass either if I'm honest, the stretching looks awful. The world map was agreed on nearly 18 months ago, it's not to be changed, bar very very small changes like little ocean islands and the like.

well the harsh and frozen climate dosent seem to hinder Amagosa from conquoring the north hundreds of years before the advent of modern technology...

Conquering land is one thing building modern cities and civilisation is another. The new 'island' would have a society similar to Greenland which is isolated and dependent on basics such as fishing.

Why don't you move to the land that was previously Canterbury and establish your nation there? There is no reason why you can't have your American style society in that location. Just remember that the islands of New Sealand and Nieuw Guinea are former Carpathian dependencies and that there is a small nation located on the north-western tip of what is known, currently, as Canterbury.

I'm not going to approve the changes to the world map as proposed above, sorry.

Oh ffs, before you try to make me a villain, you did not initially claim the northern territories, I already had a history when you asked about it, and I said you could if you used the history established. You agreed, and then decided to change everything, and violate our agreement. And btw, does the word Vikings, or Dutch , mean anything? They didn't need modern equipment. How about the Russians? They claimed their northern territories without modern equipment.

I also cannot support such huge alterations to the map as it has been decided upon already. I would go with Michael's suggestion.

@ Weecaeks; I'm sorry, but I can't accept it either. I like the current position of Island (Iceland) too much for it to change.

@ ApolloVonSol; None of the countries bordering the arctic would ever allow you to. Would Russia/US/Norway allow Germany to start claiming the north and building oil rigs there? NO... A bit of realism would be nice Wink

Realism is something I'm trying to have enforced on people, this isn't a world full of restrictions. The growing diversity of nations should already be a testament to this.

People are free to have realistic nations, however Gaea is a means for people to be a bit more creative and different.


Just saying......

to be fair kev, i think you should have labeled your ex-territories with stripes to indicate there is a predetermined storyline. Not all people want to work with your history or ideas.

As for the reason i broke the agreement: as time went on i developed more and more ideas how i want to run the country. the old storyline simply didnt fit into the new ideas i had so the agreement had to be broken. i am free to do whatever i want within my borders, you cannot intervene unless i say so.

thanks michael for Canterbury. im assuming im going to have two new neighbors to my north Very Happy. are these two nations played by you or is someone occuping them already? Also i would like to work out some history between us considering we also speak Selonian....i will move Eisenhower to Canterbury
