Pat is, I think? I'll do it if asked, but I'm under in the impression that he wants to take care of it.

We should each take a region so everyone has something to do. A rough enough sketch will be good even if all our styles aren't quite the same.

I posted the method on how to make biomes the Sagan 4 way. Not sure how they are made using real life biomes. :/

We just follow the winds!

Mountains will force warm, moist ocean air to rise and therefore release its water. So unless there is also warm air coming from the sea on the other side, you can expect deserts. At least I think that is how it works basically.

Naw those are easy its the other specific biomes I am unsure of.

Well the Sagan 4 way is like this ...

Dry to Wet
 Desert -> Grassland -> Scubland -> Woodland -> Rainforest -> Wetland


Tropical
Dune -> Savanna -> Tropical Scrubalnd -> Tropical Woodland -> Tropical Rianforest -> Swamp

Temperate
Desert -> Plains -> Scrubland -> Temperate Woodland -> Temperate Rainforest -> Marsh

Polar
Tundra -> Polar Scrub -> Taiga -> Bog

Mountain
High Desert -> High Grassland -> Rocky -> Boreal -> Alpine -> Moor

So yeah I am not sure how RL translates.

Mmmm, rivers.

You're gonna want to remove the 4 way intersection, though.
It kinda implies one of the rivers flows backward.

Looks dope. Agree with Brandon.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Which 4-way intersection? I don't see any.

It's not exactly a 4-way but two of the tributaries are very close and they're feeding into the river in different directions which makes it hard to imagine a topology which would result in that.

I think each pixel is a kilometer, so there should be plenty of room to account for it.

If it is really that big a problem, I can move it.

Friendly reminder that the software we use to edit this map is free for anyone to use and our resources are free and easily available: https://www.gimp.org/

Given the comparisons with our planet posted previously I think it's more like 2 pixels to a kilometer, but I take your point.

I will be back in roughly 30 minutes to an hour. Gonna do some work on the map. Admittedly I'm not sure how much I can get done this morning, but if you wanna chime in or even help out, find me on Steam or however else you go about contacting me. Always love to bounce ideas off of people and I am desperate for extra eyes so everything doesn't get blamed on me after you all hate it. :3
