Yet another world map

This one is based on an image generated by a freeware program called Alternative World Map Creator which has a few problems on my PC but seems to do a reasonably good job of creating the sort of image I want. I've edited the image to replace some ice with sea, make Greenland green, and add the equator.

My reason for looking at this is that I remembered I used to have a similar DOS program that generated vector-graphics maps; can't find it anywhere now, but this seems just about suitable for my needs, and won't require me to re-draw the map to get around watermarking etc.

There's a very narrow belt of land linking siberia and Alaska which is an artefact of the mapping program, I'll have to delete it but I don't see that as an insurmountable problem. It also needs more ice around the Bering Strait which is now under the icecap.

Any thoughts?
