    Post World Pictures

    Here are the isocs:

    First one is of the whole world (altitude).
    Second is of the section (altitude)
    Third: is of the section (climate)
    Fourth is of the section (rainfall)
    Last is of the section (temperature)

    To be honest, I'm not really sure how useful these are now!

    I'll take areas 21, 22, and 24







    Oh, and I guess 6 as well.


    Also, here are some major rivers as shown by FT.

    Post World Pictures

    I wanted a thread that had all the world pictures together, instead of searching through the other thread for them... Here they are:

    First is the normal view, then with continental shelves, a 20-sided dice view, and a boxed area of the current region we are mapping.

    Everything is made by NeonKnight, and I think some of the views are by ravells and Torq.

    If I missed any, please PM me... or just post

    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." - NeonKnight

    These look great NeonKnight, without you this project would still be in the thought process

    How did you produce those maps?

    Those maps were produced by myself with ProFantasy's Fractal Terrains based of the wonderful WILBUR software by fellow Guildmember Joe Slayton (Waldonrate).

    I was comparing the FT output with a sample Google Maps output. I learned not to believe the !@#)(*& perspective globe projection that Google Earth uses.

    Comparing the world map with an earth map shows roughly European area in extent.

    I also did an image with the original blocks overlaid on top. It was instructive (I recall that it's been discussed before in a general way). The blocks are about 435 miles high. The bottom of blocks on the bottom row are about 370 miles wide. The tops of blocks in the top row are about 190 miles wide. The original estimate of 600x600 miles per block was way off assuming an Earth-sized world.

    I'm not sure that this matters in absolute terms for this effort, but it could lead to issues if the effort is expanded using the same globe.

    Thank you so much! I was finding the 600mile square really daunting. I'd rather we stick to whatever accuracy we can keep.
