    Sounds like a great story hans_worst. Who is it by? I agree with you regarding the different climatic regions that the portion of the map represents. Maybe the two kingdoms are divided by a big river and the pestilence was river borne. Just thinking aloud here.

    Here are some images of World 4. Basically in FT I can flip/invert, change the Location fot he north pole, etc, etc, etc.

    Additionally, other facts about the World:

    Circumference: 25,200 miles
    Highest Peak/Lowest Ocean 30,000 FT

    Axial Tilt 20 degrees (can change to whatever, this affects of course temperatures)

    Temperature based on Earth Orbit (base appears to be around 59 Degree Farhenhiedt)

    Average Rainfall is 51 inches per year.

    Main World view with additional details.

    Shows Latitude & Longitude, with a Circumference of 25200 miles, each degree latitude = 70 miles (I like round numbers). And at Equator longitude = 70 miles (nice, eh?).

    Following is the Mean Temperature map, and then the average Rainfall (light green = driest to orange=wettest.)

    Of course the one thing I have yet to do is erode/place rives based on Heightmap.

    Finally, for those with FT, here is the preliminary FTW map file.

    I need to run out to arrange some stuff for my youngest's 4th Birthday Party. I will do the rivers later when I get back (approximate 2-3 hours).

    Can you split it here instead?

    That way the island chain will not get cut...

    Thanks for the info Neon. If the circumference is 25 000 miles approx. then I make the zoomed in area about 3000 miles across which would mean each quadrant is approximately 500 miles across.

    Varianc eof 30 000 ft from highest point to lowest would mean that the highest mountain peaks are about 15 000 ft.

    Since the first version of map 4 is the one many voted for, perhaps its better to stick with that one. Do you have a bigger version?

    Yep, that is no problem, just need to rotate the globe a bit to get it cut that way.

    Looking at it now it becomes clear to me that much cooperation will be necessary with features that extend over different quadrants eg. rivers and mountains, so there will need to be discussion between the mappers of adjacents quads.

    If the planet is approximately earth sized, can anyone tell me how big those quadrants would be more or less?

    How about this for a bit of a teaser for the area, so as to get the discussion going?

    "Two kingdoms, oreintated more or less North/South that have been warring since their tribal days thousands of years ago. The tide of conquest has pushed back and forth between them without either attaining major ascendacy. Both became kingdoms in their own right resulting in a powerful stalemate. Recently however (maybe 100 years ago) a mysterious plague swept through the border regions of both kingdoms, decimating the populations and almost destroying the economies of both. The recovery has been slow on both sides, but the time may be ripe for a decisive victory either way."

    Here is your area a little more 'zoomed and detailed' including rivers (main rivers).

    This covers an area 1350 miles east/west at the top of the image, 2616 east west at bottom of the image, and 2308 miles north/south.

    Thanks Neon. Is it possible to post a snapshot of that same area without the grid as well as the same area in greyscale so that those that wih to can incorporate the exisitng height info? I will divide it up and let people stake their claims and get on with the business of mapping.
