    Post *** March 09 Challenge - Rivermania ***

    This month's challenge is based on another suggestion from Gameprinter that the CL's liked.

    Using the attached map as a starting point, throw a ton of precipitation at this map. The map is divided into 100 squares.
    • Every square must contain at least 1 water course.
    • 1/5th (20) must contain at least 2 watercourses.
    • 1/10th (10) must contain at least 3 watercourses.
    • The red marked squares do not need rivers in them.
    • Contestants must include a grid (10 x 10) overlayed on their final entry.


    The end result should be one BOATLOAD of rivers. It is up to you to determine the scale of the map, the size of the map, and where to place place terrain features (mountains, etc.) to make such rivers happen...Remember, the River Police are watching....

    Minor alterations are permitted to fractalize the coast lines, but the depicted rivers, lakes/seas, and coastal shape must be recognizable as derivative from the original. The rivers provided are the main river system of the section of land. It is expected (nay, demanded) that you add tributaries to these rivers as well as add additional river systems to suit your needs, but the existing rivers may not be lengthened.

    Sorry guys, I was trying to be smart about saving space and link to the map and thumbnail for the CL forum post where we discussed it. I could see it without a problem and I assume the other CL's could, but I guess others could not. Anyway, I downloaded the image and uploaded from my machine and attached to the original post.

    Cool, I might have a play with this one. I was hoping for the verticle map.


    Actually, you couldn't post a PNG version of that map could you. There's JPG artifacts all over it.


    Anyways, just reserving some space here for entrants to the thumbs...

    Isn't it just a template? Nothing will remain of this, after the new real art gets put on top, right?

    C'mon Redrobes, we don't want to do all the work for you!

    I do believe there is a 2000x2000 png without the grid in the planning forum but we chose not to provide it since we are allowing mods to the coastline.

    If people really demand it it could be provided, I guess...
