Custom Mapbox style as basemap

First of all: congratulations! You have definitely built the best online map editor on the whole web. I am amazed!

Now my request/suggestion: it would be really cool if you guys could make it possible to choose customized Mapbox basemap styles in the map settings. For me personally it is crucial, since I use Mapbox to customize basemaps for displaying historical research purposes (e.g. by removing current country borders, motorways, city labels etc.). But I also know that a lot of other people like to customize Mapbox styles for different purposes, now that they have become the de facto industry leader among web developers.

Do you have anything planned in this regard?

Hi @idontpanic,

First of all welcome to the forum. Now, if you believe it or not, exactly today I wrote an email to Mapbox about my plans to integrate custom Mapbox Studio basemaps to MapHub. It’s not easy, and I’ll need their help for it as welll, but I definitely want to offer it!

Are you working on maps that have none of the modern elements on them? Meaning buildings, highways, things like that? I was hoping to find a tool to make a game map set in the early ADs, I would not expect accurate vegetation or anything, just road and building markers to not be present.

If that is what you are planning, it would be brilliant!

Hi Coren,

It’d support everything what you create from within Mapbox Studio. If you can create it then it’ll be supported as a basemap.
