View Full Version : ecosystem and clima-zones of my new world

12-28-2012, 07:06 AM
Dear community,

I worked hard on my New world For several months. Now, where the general topographic is clear i want to create the ecosystem and the clima-zones. I once found an impressive tutorial on clima-zones, wind etc' where it was shown right from an empty world to the finished world' where there are the influencing factors like pressure etc.

I'm searching for it now for several days without succes and I need help. Can anybody link this tutorial (pdf ?)

Thank you so far

It's not completely finished, but this tutorial I began should get you started: Where does the wind blow? (http://www.cartographersguild.com/tutorials-how/11964-where-does-wind-blow.html). There are also a bunch of work-in-progress threads where I and better climatologists than I have made suggestions for people.
