Added a big ugly, vaguely-pangea shaped blob:
And I drew it all on paper and cut out the puzzle pieces.
After reading the comments in the tutorial listed above, and re-reading this one I was kind of stuck on how to proceed. I want to reflect semi-accurately all the different ways the plates move... but how, when I just have flat pieces?
So... my generic solution was threading each piece on a piece of string and winding them all (almost fitting perfectly, YAY) around a styrofoam crafting ball.
I think I will fold some bits down where they would sink back into the ocean, and look at the blank spaces in between that occur with the movement of the shrinking plates as new plate/land growth from the other side.
It might not work well, but I figure it's less random than just pushing the plates in the direction of my shaky arrows, yes?
