    Ok, I'm going to be critical on two points, here. First, copying the coastlines of Britain with such fidelity is in my opinion a mistake. It is...

    groovey liked post by acrsome On thread : Terraformed Venus
    As with, I suspect, most of the larval-stage cartographers who end up here I have discovered Wilbur (all hail Waldronate). I dug up some Magellan data on Venus topography and fed it through, dealt...

    Neyjour liked post by acrsome On thread : Pangea Ultime, 250 million AD
    Another thread led me to consider this as a mapping challenge (assuming that it hasn't been done before). How about a map of PangaeaUltima (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pangaea_Ultima)- the...

    Wired liked post by acrsome On thread : Moonfall and the Seven Realms of Man
    Neat. Nicely done. I was going to try to make a post-apocalyptic Martian setting, too, but I would want to keep that tidbit a secret from the players for a while and decided that Mars was simply...

    groovey liked post by acrsome On thread : WIP: unnamed Earh-like planet
    I'm not sure what you mean by "recreate the tropic and subtropic latitudes." If your axial tilt is, say, 23 degrees then the tropics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tropics) are by definition to 23...

    Don't worry too much about adding random mountain ranges wherever you need them. As long as they are older and lower- i.e. more eroded- then it's easy to explain. Look at the Appalachians or the...

    JefBT liked post by acrsome On thread : Gliese 581-G (Just for fun)
    Yes, a moon would be unlikely. Unless it were a recently captured vagrant. With a giant ball of fusing gas in a predictable location in the sky, I doubt that the locals would care much about...

    Yes, I'm still working on it. Exactly two days total since my last post, but I warned you all about that. Careers suck sometimes... @foremost: Those aren't "heat bands", they are high- and...

    Domino44 liked post by acrsome On thread : Planet of DURANIN and Satellites
    What kind of star does this planet orbit? Because 4.3 billion km orbital radius seems excessive. I think you may have had a decimal-placement error, there. That's 30 times as far as the Earth is...

    Brother, I'm still very much in the "Learning How to Use Gradients, Masks, Etc. in GIMP" stage. I spent two days just getting a gradient seascape that looked decent. And then another attempt last...
