The Gilded Era: North America by Alt-Reality The Gilded Era: North America by Alt-Reality
There are probably quite a few mistakes left on this yet, but, after three drafts, a system crash and three computers it is in a finished enough state.

Oh, very interesting here! Appears that the British decided to go full force in expelling the French from BNA, eh? Don't even see St. Pierre left as a bastion of Nouvelle France. Also... my hometown is the capital of a new province. Interesting - though Thompson sounds a lot more capital-like than Fort McMurray. Would probably end up looking nicer as well, instead of a cluttered oil-town mess ;)

Also, is it just me, or was Baffin Island nuked from orbit? Actually... a few islands look off... Cape Breton is shattered, and Haida Gwaii has been whittled down to just Graham Island. Higher sea levels/warmer cliamte, mayhaps?

Anyhow... interested in see where you go with this!

That's beautiful work, man. Gorgeous.

One question, though: what's with the big-ass lakes in California? If one of 'em is supposed to be the Salton Sea, you've got it way too far north.

That, along with some islands, is my attempt at scale issues I notice in some older maps (where some things look smaller or bigger than they actually are).

Thanks!
