Question about political maps

I noticed that for the merged oceans there are no political maps. Here's the ocean page for Meridian for instance. However, if I look at the former oceans that were merged, I find that the political map for Viridian and the political map for Malachite are still being maintained. The interesting thing is that the Malachite political map seems to be much more expansive and actually represent the political landscape in the Meridian ocean. Is that correct? Malachite political map = Meridian political map?

Re: Question about political maps
As I understand it, the same holds true for Emerald. If you were to take a look at theHunter political map , it is actually representative of Emerald's connections.

Perhaps we could insert the links for the old maps into the new pages.

The maps are actually not maintained, but automatically updated with some coding voodo.

Re: Question about political maps
I wonder how the code works. Maybe it looks at a specific list of island pages, and counts flags? Because it's evidently clear that it's not Malachite map = Meridian map, because otherwise it'd also be the case that Veridian map = Meridian map, but then Malachite map = Viridian map should also be the case, and it's not.

I can see Barely Dressed on the Viridian map, though, and that's a Malachite flag...

Re: Question about political maps
Does Barely Dressed own a Viridian-side island, perhaps? I'm not in a position to check.

Not at the moment. Pretty sure they did until recently, though.

Re: Question about political maps
I think it takes also the fame list and follows alliance/war links. So if you're not on the fame list or connected to a flag that is, you won't be on there. (Or if you don't meet the size/island requirement)

Re: Question about political maps
I think it probably works by looking at the islands that were in a ocean and finding which flags own them, and then working through their alliances.

Hence a flag that started in Malachite that owns an island that was in Meridian will show up in the Meridian Political map.
