    Well... wouldn't it depend on what is happening with the other plates too, though? The ones they will run into?

    Well technically speaking the earth is an oblate spheroid (a little wider at the equator, than at the poles) and not a perfect sphere - but its a lot more spherical than what you got in your thumbnail.

    Well, I found this image which seems to suggest that at one point in the past the southern pole was covered by ocean rather than the Antarctic landmass, which over time gradually moved southwards until the pole was instead covered by land. Reasonably speaking, it seems that the pole would have, at some point, been on the Antarctic coast.

    Looking good so far. I like the Play Doh idea. Sounds fun . I Totally recommend this tutorial thing for the climate stuff (and yes, that's kinda where you are at the moment). Its been invaluable to me in my similar endevours here.

    Now, that central continent is huge, so its going to have some pretty wild weather stuff going on, especially as it is huge in both the northern and southern hemispheres. I think you may get some climate types that are nothing like we have on earth. Also, the center of that continent is gonna be HOT and most probably quite dry. Like the Sahara turned up to 11. Or at least that is my impression at first glance. Also, having continents at both north and south poles will make things interesting, as it keeps all the water in the oceans just a little bit warmer. Again, at a glance, based on what I've read, this world looks positively Triassic Era (Warm, dry, and fairly uniformly so).

    I'll look more when I get home tonight.

    temperature wise, i mean..

    And i still don't understand how the mountains will affect that, or where to make it rain (no, not like that! Gosh!) on my map, even if I have the temperature right? >.<

    At a quick look while on break the temps look pretty good. The rest will be largely be determined by starting with your pressure zones.

    Aye I did that (though I think I posted it on another thread... but it was totally messed up.

    I checked out your maps and your links again, and re-tried:

    WIP: Since nothing is working (and I have ADD) a world from tectonics up-pangea.jpg


    SO... then I overlaid my heat map (which is pretty close but not quite a match)

    WIP: Since nothing is working (and I have ADD) a world from tectonics up-pangea.jpg

    So... either... one of them is accurate, and the other is off, or they are both nearly accurate but not quite, OR I'm doing this completely wrong...


    And in any of those cases, they aren't even pretty to look at
