    It would make the circumnavigation feat really impressive to be sure. It seems bigger than the Pacific. Maybe by a considerable amount.

    Ok. So assuming all my previous maps have been more or less correct, I made this, which is basically a rough draft of the summer (in the southern hemisphere*) pressure zones. I also left in the currents and orogeny layers, because I felt they would be necessary to get a full view. I think this is accurate, but again, I'm not 100% certain. Tomorrow I will generate the southern winter map the same way. At that point I will hopefully be in a position to place forests/rain forests/deserts etc.

    *Its centered around the southern hemisphere, because that's where the great civilizations have been centered, if you are wondering

    Edit: Updated the map with one better illustrating the pressure zones and also made some adjustments after studying the resources more.

    Looks good.

    Are you following "Geoff's Climate Cookbook"?

    Yes, along with a few other suggested resources.

    Ok, long time with no posts, but I have been working on this as I have a chance. I am about to figure up temperatures across the map and then I can start assigning biomes based on precipitation vs temp . Here are WIPs:

    Winter Pressure Zones and Winds

    Summer Pressure Zones and Winds

    Winter Precipitation (Relative, not absolute)

    Summer Precipitation

    BTW, if anyone is interested in how I created the precipitation maps, I can gladly explain my methodology, but all the info comes from the Climate Cookbook referenced earlier in the thread. If anyone sees anything that might be off, let me know.

    Sorry, I must have missed your thread (been really busy lately). Give me a link, and I'll take a look at what you have.

    And thanks for the compliment! I think it is right(ish) but I'm forging on anyway. Thats what lots of save files are for, right?

    Ok... I think I screwed something up. lol. SO, here is the climate/biome map that everything else has led up to. I don't think I should have so many "Mediterranean" climates, and I have one on the north ice cap continent that seems to not exist on earth. I also only seem to have one desert, which doesn't sound right either. At least only one major one. Anyway, take a look and see what you think. I'm off to work.

    Oh... I'm a silly sod. Planets are spheres, so there is no WEST on Antarctica. Similarly, there would be no west on my polar continent. That will probably fix the "?" climate zone I have there. I'll mess around with it and see where it goes.


    EDIT: And it did. Here are the corrected maps from above. Now that I have my biomes figured out, It's time for me to try and get this mess into Wilbur to get some nice detailed landscapes and rivers and stuff.
