About Podcreature
Biography:
Being a general sci-fi and fiction enthusiast, I ended up developing an interest in maps out of necessity, because I wanted to depict as realistic of a map as possible for one of my favorite sci-fi worlds: Anne McCaffrey's Pern. I've enjoyed making other maps along the way lately, and I can see this becoming a decent hobby in it's own right.

    HI. I was reading this thread and had a thought. Depending, of course, on the planet having a small or large elliptical orbit. This may cause sun watchers to see the sun "Beat like a heart" in...
