Thank you for your application.

Here are a few remarks:

  • AN114 is quite a small island (483.50 km²/186.68 sq mi landmass), 790,829 seems a bit too high. The highest I have found for islands in this range is the Indonesian Adonara with 126,469 hab. Adonara would be a "special case" as, contrary to AN114, it's located very close to larger Flores.
  • Still related to the size is the number of roads, especially motorways and trunks roads for very short distances.
  • Antarephia is unlikely to have a mapping style that is that US-influenced.
  • I'm not sure I understand the reference to Bai, apart from the "driving on the left".
  • The past mapping section does not contain links to your past mapping you'd like to showcase in the context of the present request, so I had a look myself. For example latest airport, you may want to practice how you space out items, how you deal with their respective size and shape.

Given these elements and your past territory requests, requesting a BG territory may be strongly suggested, so that you would have your own temporary sandbox (BG as non-cannon and temporary) to practise and improve.

All the best and happy mapping, --Aiki (talk) 12:38, 8 January 2023 (UTC)
