MoF 01 Steampunk_Clockpunk by Sapiento MoF 01 Steampunk_Clockpunk by Sapiento
A map for the Map of the Fortnight 1 contest on www.alternatehistory.com.

EDIT: WINNER! :D

Topic was as titled.
I decided for a version of Europe that is connected by a network of ironways (trains) and celestonavs (airships).
Dominated by a mighty Holy German Empire this Europe is far more advanced in steam technology, using it for transport and war machines. The Last German-French War in 1855 was fought with steamtanks and celestonavs. The superior technology of the HGE ensured its victory and the dismembering of France.

EDIT: Replaced the ship picture with a more steampunkish one.

I would like to know some details on this Republic of York, and I realised you posted this four years ago. I am curious.

...The only thing I have a problem with is the "Holy" German Empire...
Germany was Lutheran, there was nothing Holy about it

Alternate history. Although your argument makes sense, more of Germany was Protestant Lutheran and not as zealous as Catholicism. The 'Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation' was neither Holy, nor Roman, nor an Empire, and most certainly was not a united German state in the sense of a single country.

I understand that, Imperia Romana Sanctus was still overlooked by a Higher Emperor, who was Catholic most of the time...

...your argument is legitimate though so I won't continue this

Oh god, the contents of this map is like a wet dream. :XD:

Can't say I'm surprised you won the contest, that's for sure. I'd point out specifically what I liked about it, but I get distracted by the map everytime I try. Fantastic work!
