Revoran's Pangea 2016-10-05

Play on the supercontinent that inspired the map script. :)

A huge size map of the supercontinent Pangea as it existed on Earth roughly 250 million years ago, with appropriate terrain. Eurasia is a large landmass to the north, while the Americas and Africa form the central landmass and Australia, Antartica and India the southern landmass. This is a true Pangea map, all areas (excepting small islands) are reachable via land. Resources are hand placed as there is bugs with the random resource placement in the map editor. Resources have been placed so that not all luxuries are in all regions, encouraging trade with other nations.

Pangea is a crescent shape, with fertile areas along the coast of the Tethys sea (the large sea surrounded mostly by landmass, as opposed to the external Ocean) and fertile areas in the north and south. The central area is dominated by a huge inland desert bordered by the gigantic Appalachian Mountains to the north and what will become the Great Rift Valley of Africa to the south. The southern areas include a large icecap locking up much of the world's water and drying shallow seas that existed previously and will exist again eventually before the continents fully break up.

I apologize for any failings geography-wise; I'm no expert on the subject, I just find it interesting. I encourage all feedback good or bad. :)

File is a .rar archive meaning you'll need the application WinRar to unpack it.

Update Log:
April 05 2011: Ticked the "randomize goodies" button which will hopefully add Ancient Ruins in random places on the map. Fingers crossed.
March 30 2011: Added atolls and natural wonders (which for some weird reason were missing when I opened the map) including Cerro de Potosi. El Dorado and the Fountain of Youth were not included due to balance issues and being fictitious - you can very easily add them yourself via the "plopper" in the Worldbuilder in the SDK - a free download under "Tools" in Steam.
Dec 20 2010: Previous version was missing many resources due to an accident - now fixed, new map should have all resources placed.
