I look forward to it.
Some say that we all have a world inside us, waiting to be born. Karros is my world. It originally started as a silly little idea dreamed up by a very naive DM. It was at the time called Meishgon: The Sundered World and was based upon a spherical world that had been split into elemental planes. The maps were sub par and the use of classic tropes were obvious to an almost painful level. Slowly though things changed. The naive world builder met new friends, friends far more experienced than him, and slowly his ideas took root. Since then they have shifted and changed in a very stream-of-consciousness manner.
That DM has decided to go back to basics and pull forth a world in a more organic way. Therefore a proto-continent has been drawn up and plate boundaries drawn. With some help, said DM is going to make like a 2 year old with a freshly finished puzzle and pull it all apart. From this then will come the terrain and climate as well as the migration of species and founding of empires. So now that you have endured that long winded and overly philosophical nonsense I give to you the proto-continent of my world, ready to be born. A bit of color and texture has been added to this version (since black and white alpha maps are boring ).
More to come once I begin tearing it up and turning it into a finished product.

Cool project. Looking forward to your progress
I would suggest picking up a handful of toy plastic balls for something like this. Far easier to get your wrap around collisions to work well when working in a sphere rather than a plane.
Also I'm thinking your plates might be kind of small, how geologically active are you looking for this world to be?
I think you'll need some boundaries going off the edges of the maps and joining up on the other side. Right now it looks like your continent is one big plate that's shattered into smaller ones, surrounded by a single large ocean plate that isn't moving or doing anything.
