Map of New York by GarudaTeam Map of New York by GarudaTeam
A finalized map of New York using a new kind of map style developed by fellow cartographer Blomma. This will be the final map from this universe of just New York, but I am proud of the results.

Basically, New York in 1894 declared independence from the United States, and in a two year War of Independence from the United States, Independence was finally achieved in 1896. Colonel Theodore Roosevelt became the nation's 1st President from 1897 to 1905, and over the course of the 20th century, New York became a major center of international trade and politics. While New York began to decline in the late 20th century and the early 21st century, in 2011, a revolution overthrew the old corrupt government and the new Second Republic of New York was founded.

Hello, you know men as Nick Griffalco from alternate history.  I wanted to stop by and let you know that I like your map.  Out of curiosity, why did Connecticut and northern New Jersey join New York?

My apologies for this belated response. The scenario has since changed since I made the map, but I had it planned that New Jersey (Or at least the northern parts) were gained as a result of World War 1 and a part of the Treaty of Versailles equivalent between the United States and New York. As for Connecticut, it was a matter of convenience. New England was not united, and Connecticut chose the stronger nation to join at the time. Looking back on it I felt it was unrealistic though, so the planned timeline is undergoing some changes.

This map has possibilities.

POD: The United Kingdom won the War of 1812 (Maine is part of Canada.)

Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Maine not being part of New England makes me sad.

If you did the map with Inkscape, how did you do the horizontal blue lines on the coast?

1Blomma has a tutorial for that. Its fairly simple.

 

You basically put a blue shadow or glow around the coast and then make a custom 1 x 3 pixel pattern with the 2 top pixels white and the bottom one clear, so that when you fill the water it covers 2 out of every 3 vertical pixels with white.

That sounds easy enough if I had Photoshop, but if not, it's not easy. That's why I was asking, I don't have the programme.

I used that old National Geographic map and spent a few hours making screenshots and sticking it together.
