A possible solution is to let tiles be updated by the mappers as frequent as they want (nightly even) while the Malsingmaps Gold (which includes all tiles) to be released on a predetermined frequency, eg monthly or quaterly.
Mappers wanted. Read this to get started. Payment = Recognition = Priceless.
We don't just build maps. We build relationships.

I fully understand this is a hobby, at all levels, but there again we need to support fellow members in their individual quest for enjoyment. In many cases, a fundamental requirement would be a payback via regular updates.

I fully agree with this. All are doing this at our own time. But we do not want our effort to go to waste.

The East Malaysian map tiles namely Sarawak, Sabah and Brunei are normally compiled once a month (sometimes twice) and post in the Contributor's Area as Beta maps. The latesd posted on 01 November 2008 for Sarawak is v3.25, Sabah is v3.24 and Brunei is v1.8.

Bern is doing his bit efficiently no doubt. He is one of our most senior mappers. But most of us will want the whole Malaysian tiles rather than the various states. Mappers for the various regions may well update their region regularly and diligently. But it is the compiled version that is taking some time at the moment.

Wow shame we have to wait so long, sure it is going to be a better Map/MSM but a long time in the life of a fledgling map such as Brunei.

When there is a loss of continuity then there will be a loss of support for the project, we all like to see the fruits of our labour and this can only be done with regular updates.

To keep making improvements, I really an updated Brunei to be released, Sarawak and Sabah are already compiled so we are almost there.

I fully understand this is a hobby, at all levels, but there again we need to support fellow members in their individual quest for enjoyment. In many cases, a fundamental requirement would be a payback via regular updates.

Please, please make a better Map/MSM but does this need to be at the expense of our updates?

Maybe it would be possible to update V2.30 and provide an easy solution.

Perhaps bro envincem is right... is it possible to make it a v2.30a, v2.30b for slight updates here and there while waiting for the
big change in January??
