    Wip [WIP] Onaviu: A Double First (First World Map and First Map with Tablet)

    First, I want to throw great heaps of thanks and appreciation to Pasis for his wonderful tutorial.

    As in the subject, here is a double first for me. A world map done with a tablet.

    Sorry for such a large file and map. I compressed the JPEG as much as I dare without totally losing picture quality. I have since cut the map into two pieces with a 200 pixel overlap in the center. The lines are the major latlong lines I put on all world maps I create (all previous were hand drawn). These major latlongs are:

    Red = Prime Meridian
    Blue = Date Line
    Green = Equator
    Yellow = northern and southern subsolar points
    Cyan = arctic and antarctic circles

    I put these lines in for they show me the maximum intertropical convergent zone migration (dependent upon landforms) due to axial tilt and the maximum extent of perennial polar ice caps (although not always).

    The smoke cloud was a last second edition I failed to turn off before exporting to a JPEG. However, it does show the sight of a massive caldera (super-volcano) that I had recently exploding on the Onaviu.

    Thanks for any comments and criticisms.

    Wow..thats a super volcano alright.. the map looks great but at this scale the water texture looks a little too "real" the waves would be monstrous..

    A supervolcano could stir up some massive waves, so maybe they are to scale...

    Yeah I was thinking the same thing about the ocean layer I initially chose. That is why I worked on a new oceans/seas layer set after posting.

    LOL. Sounds like a good explaination to me.

    all others: 4.59

    Numbers do not add up to exactly 1,000,000 due to roundoff and uncertainty.

    Water is highly variable, typically makes up about 1%.

    Of course, that may be too much data, but I did calculate it all.

    Now I'm off to do some rivers and city placements.

    Never liked that kind of water texture, but the mountains looks alright.

    Well, I've been gone a while. Too dang much to do around the house. And my drawing hand is still broken. Although better drawing left handed, was able to get some text done with right hand.

    Here is the latest I have been able to get done. Now I just have to get the seas and bays named and this section will be finished. Still waiting for left hand to heal before working on the other half.

    Here is the latest I've done on the other side of Onaviu. Didn't do too bad with my right hand since left is still healing.

    Not totally satisfied with northern Taurlond. I thought I had a good tundra pattern, but thought wrong. Now gotta go find one or make it. Also, could not get the snowfield to follow the underlying mountain and hill contours as with the forests and grasslands. However, I'm going to work on it and figure it out. I know setting the layer to multiply will get it to follow the contouring, but it also turns the snowfield a very dark grey to almost black. Might have to make a second set of mountain layers and use the snowfield instead of the patterns I did use.

    I can already hear the River Police. However, if you could see the underlying terrain model, you'd see why the rivers take the paths I have drawn. I'm still not finished with the rivers and lakes. I'd upload the terrain model, however it is 50+Mb in size. I felt I was pushing things with an almost 2Mb half-world map.

    Eventually, this map will be used for my upcoming RMFRP campaign. Eventually.

    Thanks for any C&C.

    And I think I am finished with this section of Onaviu. This continent is going to be unknown. Thus, the reason only the major cities are listed. Thus, I feel this section is finished until it is discovered.
