    A tilted plateau look would be very cool... that could be testing my meager photoshop abilities, LOL. But I like that! I haven't yet gotten a plateau I like let alone tilting one, heh heh. Widening those mountains a tad isn't a bad idea either.

    Cool map, the mountain ranges are very Mordor-esk. I'd love to see a tilted plateau, but I don't know how you'd do it either. What if, you overlay a height map of a real one and see if you can't work from that? Might work. I like the colors you used. =)

    Looks like a very good start. Looking forward to the final product. It's nice you think so much about tectonics and explanations of things, makes the world much more alive.^^

    Out of curiosity, does anyone know of a good resource for how natural resources are distributed around the world? In particular metals?

    And here is the latest version of this continent. The labeling is mostly placeholder I am playing around with.

    There is no lack of thought in this world! Someday my daughter will have me committed to an asylum citing this world as evidence of my insanity. The world "exists" as a whole for about 10,000 years with a distinct beginning and end that I probably won't live long enough to fill it all in, LOL.

    And also an updated version of the world... again the labels are in progress and some might overlap as they are intended for different versions.

    The map is looking good. =)

    Your question about ore deposits got me wondering, too, so I did a couple of google searches and found these...

    http://www.d.umn.edu/~pmorton/geol53...snotes2009.pdf

    I haven't looked at them in depth yet, but that last one looks quite readable and interesting. If you find anything more useful, I bet it would be a great addition to the reference material forum. Come to think of it, there might already be something there. hmm...

    Excellent! Those are far better than any info I found in my quickie search, and that's having barely glanced at them, LOL. Very promising stuff.
