But that other map NEEDS to be renamed ANYWAY, so "not requiring renaming any other map" shouldn't be a significant consideration.
My understanding of the situation is that you can't rename the map with out the creators consent. They asked him earlier (prompted by this thread, check page 3 or 4) but he declined. I agree it's stupid, it doesn't make sense, and he's being a snot wad. The map should be called "Far East" it's OBVIOUS. It even says it on the map. Why it was ever called "Asia" in the first place is a mystery, but unless you can convince the original map maker to change it there's no point in discussing it.
I'd rather see some new updates than an ongoing name dispute.
