A bit of progress today. That's my new goal; a little bit of work each and every day as opposed to putting in several hours every third or fourth day. It gives my mind a chance to clear itself, so to speak, and hang on to that focus instead of burning out.
With a bit of help from Waldonrate, I managed to tweak out the main continental shore-lines and shelves. For this update, I shifted the center of the projection in FTPro just a bit to give a clear view of all the land masses and set all the above sea-level elevation coloring to a fairly dark green for the sake of contrast. I'll be sending the world to Wilbur as an MDR file next so that I can set up the PNG side of things for smoothing the land masses and re-building the main mountain chains. That, in and of itself, is going to take a while (I'm guessing a week or so as I don't want to rush things) and then it will be back into Wilbur (as a grey-scale surface) for export as an MDR file to import into FTPro for rainfall, temperature and climate editing.
I haven't yet decided on a specific name for this world. As is often the case, however, the various cultures involved may have their own names for the world based on their own creation myths and languages. The predominant religions are likely to be based on Old Norse and Ancient Egyptian mythologies with a smattering of other mythologies stirred into the mix, so if anyone has suggestions in this regard, I'm open to them. Likewise, I'm open to suggestions as far as the land masses go. I'm fairly happy with them as they stand right now in terms of shape and distribution, but if anyone sees anything that seems a bit "off" I'd like to hear about it. As it stands right now, there aren't any polar land masses, and it's unlikely that I will be adding them in at any point in the future.
Technically speaking, this world is about 2/3rds the size of Earth both in circumference and elevation range. It orbits a slightly smaller sun which makes it a few degrees cooler at the surface than Earth, as well. With a slightly more exaggerated axial tilt, the seasons are a bit more extreme than we see on Earth. I'm still working on the calendar (the current version is a 351 day calendar) for the world as well as the other astronomy based details.
Anyways, I suppose that's enough for now, as soon as I have a solid name for the world, I'll drop it into the World/Regional Mapping sub-forum. For now, here's the latest bit of work. C&C welcome.
