    Wip Tainted Land

    Well, here's a rough scaled down draft of a landmass I did earlier today. I won't be doing the final map with this technique, this version is just to demonstrate the coastal lines and nation borders. There's no hurry with this one, so it could take some time to complete. I know I might need to do something to the island in south-west of the map. It just doesn't fit in so well at the moment.

    argh, I thought there were some troubles ahead, but I didn't know turning the landscape to 3d terrain is that tricky.. (if you want erosion etc..) What it will do is, lose detail, make it chunky.. cause headache.

    Looks like it got plowed by a massive glacier...kind of interesting.

    there's no mountains etc YET.. just working to get the continent borders working, before adding details. And the texture is.. well, a temporary one

    Here is the hand drawn and cleaned b&w sketch of the map. Just wanted to post it as I'll probably cover most of the steps on this thread.. so somehow it belongs here.

    That or the world suffered a major melting of the polar ice caps.

    The melting of the polar caps would suit the idea I have on this map & world (well, it's only a partition of the world displayed here .

    I hate this project already xD Maybe I shoudn't try to force the terrain to a spesific shape, but just to (mhhh.. at this point there were blue artifacts on my display and the whole computer stopped responding. Geocontrol probably crashed it ) go with the flow and work with the results I get.

    In the old days the tip of the pencil broke, nowadays the computers crash. Times change.
    Interested to see what you take this. Good luck...

    Well, this attempt might be an overkill... x) I just wanted to have nice mountains.. but it messed up the other parts of the terrain
