If we can get some good colors, then yes.

i don't particularly like the national colors, but i don't mind them. we can just have a colored and uncolored version, it's just a matter of 2 minutes to paintbucket everything.

nation-text should be standardized, i hope a bit smaller than the large text fiah had in the second picture. also only one nation-name-label per nation, 'united states of america' isn't writen on alaska and hawaii.

what are these straight water borders even
curved water borders make no logical sense

Personally I'd be for nation names ofc. Not sure whether we should set rules on the fonts, we could make a poll on that. Ocean borders I'm not sure about either, depends on style. I'd be against writing a description of your nation on the map.
I think:
- Nation names: font chosen by user for their nations
- No ocean borders (the only ocean borders that should be set should be for tropical cyclone forecasting! and for the eastern hemisphere, the Nausikkak Meteorological Collaboration has that covered.)
- No descriptions

Also is kip not like... in the way... ? That's where Nausikkak was, was it not?

i don't know what you mean by where nausikkak was, there have been probably at least 10 so-called 'official maps', just move kallisto over if you want, i didn't have a specified position so i just floated it in the center. keep it slightly north of the equator and pointing in the same direction if at all possible.

also about the fonts:
1. I don't like the idea of custom fonts, it would make the map look strange/sloppy to me
2. That's no problem, we can just make a version with the custom fonts, and one without
3. text should not obscure or touch the borders of any landmass/area.

how does this sound:
one colored/custom font/colored borders /whatever divisions/whatever you want map.
one map with standard white and blue colors, one font, nation black borders only.

Well, we could simply start by making the land, and make the text and borders layers on top of it in a GIMP/xcf file or something. Then we can change versions quickly and don't have to make lots of different versions every time we want to update some borders.

Of course, we can decide the borders roughly before drawing them.

i suggest we make the national borders first, and then when it is done, a seperate .png for text and internal borders and whatever else can be made?

WAIT BLA. if a region is already settled and decided, it should be in the background layer.

there should be several layers for an already completed nation... a coastline layer, a border layer, a fill layer, and an ocean layer (maybe more?)

Well I think there should be enough layers that if someone wants to make a specific version they like they can do that, but when editing the map should be kept in the standard editable format, along with a png image.

ha yeah 5 colors for Amalthea is difficult as it is, especially since about 27 different nations are going to conflict with NP's solid red... it's such a popular color, isn't it?
