Hey Gavin, that looks good to me.

Instead of using South India, you could simply call it Dakshin. West could be Paschim, and East could be Purab. North is Uttar.

I think Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh really come under South. Chattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, are usually considered west. You could club Kashmir with the remaining northern states or add Uttaranchal to the North (which it actually is). You have the option to club Pakistan and Afghanistan. The Eastern states could be clubbed with Burma and Bangladesh if you need to reduce continents.

Don't forget to put in the Himalayan range between the eastern states and Nepal. After all that's the highest mountain range in the world! The Siachen mountain ranges come between Kashmir and Pakistan, which actually is the highest battlefield in the world!

This would make the whole thing a very convincing and credible experience!

All the best.

One more thing, for all those wondering what "pradesh" means. It means "state." For example Uttar Pradesh means Northern State, although it is a proper noun. Similarly Madhya is "central."

For those who are wondering why this does not look like India. Well this is the Indian subcontinent, not the country of India. This is what India looked like a few centuries ago before it got all split up.

I realise later that you had added in the mountain ranges in the latter maps. Cool.

Ciao :D

U seem very knowledgable on the region pittman, do u wish to take over the map? i could send u the files. I sort of abandoned this map after the indian presidencies was thought up of, that map looks soo much better than mine, but it seems the cartographer gave up on the map.

Not my area

Yup, that's right, I live here. It's my country.

But I don't really think I can take over from you. This isn't really my area of expertise. We can collaborate though if that will helpful.

Indian Prsidencies

I checked out the Indian presidencies map. It looks nice but is set in a different time frame and the spellings are atrocious.

I think yours is much more authentic and that goes for mountain ranges etc.
