After making the world-maps, I realized that my previous Book 1 map didn’t sync up well with the ‘current-age’ map, so decided to redo it off the world-map template.
It’s still not entirely what I want, and very busy with all these labels, but the labels are on separate layers so I can strip them out when needed. It’s also narrower, which makes it more suitable for insertion into an epub — the wider previous one was getting cut off about 3/4ths of the way along.
The older one had more blank space on the left side though, which I miss. That’s why I decided to put the other countries’ names in the sidebar in the direction where they would be on the world-map, but I don’t know if that’s easily understood. Sigh.
I think it works, but obviously I’m looking at it from the perspective of someone already pretty familiar with your world…
