as nobodies has already said, this is a touch-up to fix issues and not a proper revamp. this is one of the three original maps commissioned by lackattack, along with usa and the first version of classic. while this map, in my opinion, has some of the poorest artwork on the site, it is entirely up to lackattack whether to grant permission for the existing map to be replaced by a revamped map and, if he does not, then there's no point in revamping the map.

eagleblade wrote:its Tajikistan (typo on new map)

during the soviet era (the original map uses ussr as a bonus name), kazakhstan was officially the kazakh soviet socialist republic. it formally became kazakhstan only after independence. also after independence, the tadzhik soviet socialist republic became tajikistan: the "j" spelling was regarded by the tajik authorities as being less russian.

OMG that typo was on the old map....

It's not a typo. Tadzikhistan is the proper spelling. The new government has decided to change their spelling because it's the trendy thing to do. I say f*ck 'em.
