Outermost regions is not fullEdit

Hi, TUBS. I have a question. Why in this map and other same maps with OMR of EU you not dispayed other regions? You displayed only Spanish, Portugese and French (not full) territories. What about Danish, British and Netherlands territories? If you don't understand me, see this map. And additional question-answer: what if another regions is not a part of EU? OK. Than what about another your maps without EU with OMR and multizoomes? Alex Great talk 12:16, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

I was a little off target statement. You use full OMR. Sorry. But do you have a map (or it's planed) with Overseas Countries and Territories of European States (same map with full OCT)? Alex Great talk 12:19, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
No it ain't planned. Sorry.--TUBSMail-closed.svg 14:36, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for answer. Can I ask you about another map family? Do you planned to make a map of Russia with disputed (and non-disputed) Crimea? I ask you because you already maked the Ukrainian map with disputed Crimea. Alex Great talk 14:54, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
Locator maps that show the location for Russia (either within Europe, Asia, on the globe, in the world) and take this Crimea conflict into acoount are already available, plz. see Category:SVG locator maps of Russia (location map scheme). Locator maps for subdivisions (federal subjects and districts) still wait for versions that show Crimea either integral part of Russia or at least claimed (=hatch marks). My plan is to do such maps, but I still wait for a reworked location map for Russia that I can use as a template. Cf. File:Russia edcp location map.svg! See that? No Crimea... There were some attempts to provide such a location map but still none with an exact mathematical projection (and its proper description) that works in location map templates.--TUBSMail-closed.svg 16:02, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
Why you don't used this version of file? Alex Great talk 04:39, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
That's what I meant. I don't want to use such maps as a template 'cause the author of this version (who was certainly in good faith and made - from what I can tell - a correct map) didn't provide neither a proper projection (is it still an EquiDistantConicProjection?) nor geoemtric data (what's the new central parallel and meridian and standard parallels, which most certainly must have changed?) that one will need to use the map for templates like in en:Template:Location map Russia. --TUBSMail-closed.svg 08:08, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
Why you need a cordinates and projection? You just repaint the map and enter the name of countries. Isn't it? ← Alex Great talkrus? 10:42, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
For just serving this single locator map purpose this would do. Yes. However, you loose the possibility to use the very same map in location map templates (which could be useful if you would like to show for instance the capital of a subdivision, that shall also be marked). Plus, using both location maps and locator map templates of the very same country at the same spot - in tables for instance - would cause me pain constantly due to the differing map dimensions and different map content. Plus, it makes everything increasingly difficult when borders change, 'cause I always follow changes made in the location map for that country and don't want to spend to much time to apply these changes to my very own map design (I just take the new borders from the same-size and same-design location map and fit them to my locator maps).--TUBSMail-closed.svg 11:39, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
I understand. Thanks. ← Alex Great talkrus? 14:23, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Benin on the globe (Africa centered).svg Cameroon light greyEdit

Hi TUBS! Why is Cameroon coloured light grey instead of beige? Does this have any meaning? --217.228.74.103 16:47, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

that means that I made an mistake. Well noticed! Depending on the display used, it's hard to see. Thus, this is probably not the most important thing to fix. However, I'll improve that. It will take some time though. Thanks for telling me. --TUBSMail-closed.svg 17:35, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
mission accomplished. Thx again for telling me. --TUBSMail-closed.svg 07:41, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
