    Wip New World Map

    I owe huge debts to Handsome Rob for his tutorials and Joe Slayton and Profantasy Software for Fractal Terrains.

    This is the beginnings of a world map for my gaming. Every attempt is being made to treat this like accuracy matters.

    This is the first rough look.

    Taking very rough estimates, its clear this world is actually bigger than Earth. (attachment 2 is very roughly to scale). In design goals that means that the southern coast of the northern continent is at least as long as the coast of Northern Europe. The middle continent is a third again bigger than Australia and the westernmost continent is comparable in area to North and South America in combined.

    Dollhouse Syndrome = The temptation to turn a map into a picture, obscuring the goal of the image with the appeal of cute, or simply available, parts. Maps have clarity through simplification.
