Default Update Maps for Prime Base Location

Since the original topographical maps provided in the module are not the best reproductions, they should be updated to a more "modern" version available from the USGS, which I'm guessing Terry and TML would be working on at some point.

Topographical maps can be added to Google Earth easily (not sure the legalities of using maps from Google Earth in products) and we have some excellent online resources available today, that where not available when it was originally produced.

For example;

https://www.topoquest.com/map.php?la...zoomin&size=xl

I have lost contact with Nick and Bill, but it could have been an interesting discussion on how they came to choose this location of Nevada. Unless one of them traveled thru the area at some point, or thru darts at a map, how did they pick this area?

Default Weather at Prime Base

This is Utah but is could easily be anywhere in the region, especially after the war messes up the weather

One could also use the DeLorme atlas of the area.

Default Alt Locations for Prime Base?

Looking at the maps I really can't see a better location for Prime Base. Northern Maine might work, or the northern part of Wisconsin and the UP of Michigan, but other then the general northern Nevada, southern Idaho and south eastern Oregon that is really the only parts of the country that won't get either totally plastered with nukes or covered with fallout, or overrun with refugees.

For the "frozen" bases only the nuke parts matter. So long as the bases aren't discovered being covered with fallout or stampeded over by hordes or refugees (so long as they don't stick around and build a city over your head) won't matter much

It does indicate that the back up base is probably in the northern tier of States.

Of course in a universe where ELF arrays are still active in Wisconsin and Michigan that rules those areas out, since they will get hammered.

I have not checked the licensing rules recently, but I believe publications can use maps from
https://www.openstreetmap.org/

as long as it is attributed.

Check through the versions of the map.
The cycling version of the map does have topographical markers.
