I think I can promise a finished map by the end of today, whilst I'll put units on tomorrow. While I'm off I'll make it look nicer.

Obviously, there are a few more things to do. Tomorrow, I will add units and labels, then while I'm away, I'll spruce it up

You need to add water boundaries on the inset of Korea/Japan/China/Russia/USA.

Okay, do you need any help naming the provinces?

P.S. Thanks for making the USA look better.

No thanks - I've already assembled a database as I worked. I haven't yet updated it for the Pacific Ocean spaces, but there are 321 spaces, each with individual abbreviations. I went with three letters for land spaces and four for oceans, with exceptions (such as LA).

That said, I did have a few difficulties, with results like the Verdean Sea (Verd), Falklands Sea (Falk) and Rockall (Rokl)

We should also probably include antarctica, even if it is impassible. Just make a squggly blob at the bottom.

Yes, I forgot to mention - The Arctic and Antarctica are impassable, and Hispaniola should be treated like a sea space. Hamburg, Istanbul, Panama and Cairo are all canals like in ordinary Dip.

Here's another map - we now have oceanic divisions in the East Asia inset, units and some names. I'll work on adding the rest of the names this evening (I'll post the result) and while I'm away. I'll also make it... legible.
