Climats, WIP, comments welcome: for mountains, I'll just put alpine biome, vegetation depends on altitude
Elevation, with only 1 missing continent. The gray line shows the maximum tundra extent, on low altitude.

A note regarding the north pole: The elevations there make it appear very warped. For work on the poles at this projection you need very long smooth horizontals for it to work. Also what you have essentially creates a mountain region right in the centre of the pole. Looks strange and contrived in G. Projector, which of course makes the south pole island seem even more contrived by comparison.
That said the rest of it is looking really good.

There is a black hole in the middle. I guess I will put back some straight lines. Not now unless someone was considering mapping the north pole today.
I think the south is ok. The poles are the only places that are very distorted.

Blackchakram: your spot is at the limit of humid and semi-arid climates. The south is a hot steppe BSh and the north is more humid Aw under the ITCZ. South west is probably a hot desert and south east is the rest of the steppe.
In your plot the difference in temperature between summer and winter is around 5-10 Celsius. A dry winter winter and Humid to very humid summer.
Falconius: The climate is probably Af, hot and humid all the time.
Ghost: I classified most of the area as Mediterranean climate but the western part is wetter. Some parts could be considered Cfa (south and west).

I'm almost done with the elevation map. I'm taking a break but I'll finish it today.

I managed to get a basic climate map:
And also a biome map to go with it:

Impressive. The climate map is strangely beautiful. I'll add them to the plot post later today.

Hmm not too sure why but the forum software keeps telling me the climate map is not a valid image (possibly somthing is wrong with the file name?), so I just put a link to it instead.

I updated the other post.
Some climates are missing but they are probably all steppes. The map will definitely need adjustments.
Although the tree line go very far to the north, the forest are very scarce over there. Less than 1m tall.
The areas with the lower precipitation category are classified a bit strangely because it can be almost anything if it's cold enough. Some steppes could become deserts.
And some temperate climates are too rare.
