78/100. Great quiz, though I would argue that Crimea should be yellow like the rest of Russia

Thank you! I am in agreement with you, considering Russia currently has control/administration of Crimea (and Jetpunk maps prioritise that when handling disputed territory, I've noticed). This issue has caused a great deal of controversy on my quizzes before, and I want people to focus on enjoying the quiz rather than concerning themselves on what stance I may or may not have towards Crimea.

True words. Crimea is de facto russia now.

Claiming anything else is a political stance about how one might think it should be, however that doesn't change reality

fantastic! how do you normally add sorrounding countries to the map? for me, I usually place dots on a high-quality map and overlay it from Google Maps and add the sorrounding countries that way, but it takes a long time!

I think he cuts, and then draws out the oblasts himself

Level 70
Jan 2, 2021
I use one or more maps as a base and then add whatever I like, be it oblasts, or surrounding countries. This map is question was used for my quiz on the Oblasts of Russia, which I reused here as it took a few hours to make and I wasn't keen on making a new map for this quiz. I always add cities last. I use Google maps as a source to place the cities, traditionally I use map features on the same latitude and longitude to approximate coordinates, although this is tricky on projections such as the one in this quiz.

I somehow got Tver even though I've never heard of it and don't think I typed it..?!

I'm assuming you typed 'Kalinin', the Stalinist-era name of the city, with the name Tver being restored in 1990. 'Tver' and 'Kalinin' are the only two type-ins possible for that answer.

Great quiz! I would like to suggest a few changes in city-names:

Kalinin - yes, it is an old name for Tver, but not popular now. You get this city automatic if you try to type "Kaliningrad" in

Nizhny - gets Nizhny Novgorod. But on this map there is also "Nizhny Tagil", maybe user has to type the full name for both of them

Thank you!

That is fair, I have removed Kalinin as a type in. I will keep the 'Nizhny' type-in for Nizhny Novgorod since it's really common on Jetpunk, and it reminds me of how some of the Mexican quizzes allow just Baja for Baja California (Lower California) even though there is a Baja California Sur.

I appreciate the suggestions :)

This is so much fun! Only thing that's a tad annoying is that I'm used to the German spellings of these cities and the English ones are ONLY SO SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT. But I'll get used to it. Nominated!

Thank you for playing and for your support! I struggle with the different city names too when I play quizzes in different languages. On the plus side it keeps me on my toes :)
