    Oh man, I loved the last version. The one you posted up 04-09-2009. You should try to keep with the style at least. Please. I am using my 1001st post for this!

    SPARTA!!!!

    Sorry, couldn't help myself. Anyway, yeah, that does seem like a madness-inducing exercise. And congrats to Gandwarf, Guild Expert (buh buh BUH).

    Wip Madness

    So I shifted the Shadowlands a bit and reworked the rivers and the shoreline to make them a bit more dynamic... I shrunk the elven island in the western ocean and moved it a bit closer... i did whole lots of crazy touch ups, including reworking some mountains and the glacier and some islands...

    Now what madness do I want to do?

    Well, I want to shift the mountains near the giant swamp area in the west so the giant swamp area is not so... giant.

    I also want to shrink the very river laden country in the south east... it seems to have too much of a pattern to it to have those three peninsula type nations right side by side on the southern part of the continent...

    and... i don't know about that heart shaped island I added... it may need to change shape...

    But I feel it is generally headed in the right direction...

    critiques? comments?

    Wip The Madness Continues - Editing Landmasses

    Okay.

    So I am getting happier.

    I have shifted mountains, shrunk nations, and patched up all the holes I made doing so.

    Now I am wondering if my Mountains make any geological sense. I initially put them where they are just to create barriers to migration and mobility between nations...

    now i wonder if they would flow better as central ridges along the flow of landmasses... not sure...

    but here is the work i did over the last few days...

    maybe crazy to do more landmass editing, but it is likely better to be happy with the results now then want to change them further down the road.

    I would think with my limited amount of geological knowhow that it would be better if you connected up some of the mountain ranges.

    Wip WORLD MAP: The Remix

    I grew really tired of my coastlines and nothing I could do made me feel better... so I made some clouds with Photoshop, erased and filled in portions to create a similar feel to my previous map...

    and now i think I am starting from scratch...

    Definitely have some interesting land shapes to work with.

    That's too bad. I really liked your old coastlines. I think they were really very nice and natural feeling.
    I think, therefore I am a nerd.
