    I am requesting that a talented mapper make a map of "Shiveria". A fictional Earth in which the globe gets tilted. For more information about it and more images please see this website ...

    Many thanks to whomever even attempts this map.

    ooh I like this. hmmm.
    Sounds like time for mapmaking. :)

    Could inspire some pangea and postgea maps as well.

    I was also thinking about skin color on this map. In general humans that live near the equator have darker skin while those near the poles have lighter skin. Europe is smack dab in the middle so I would think that Europeans on this alt-Earth would be very dark skinned, while say Australian aborigines would be very light skinned.

    I also wonder what culture would inhabit Antarctica. I very much like this map and how its both familiar and alien.

    Man this would be fun to play around on. My biggest concern is the amount of work it would require. It would be ten times easier if we had a square picture of it to use the bmp to wbs converter. That being said, it could be a nice project for the future.

    Yeah all the pictures I have seen are on round maps or on an actual globe.

    This could be a good project for an immense map or whatever the largest size is now. I would like to see that size map on a world map of some kind.

    If anyone that browses here would like to learn a little about map making I would be more than happy to guide you. Actually multiple people would be best but we will see. Please post in the total map conversion thread if you are interested. Most of my mod time is spent working with thunderbrd so I can't work a whole lot on new maps but I would have time to help out.

    Could you send me any more pictures you have?
    I could make a map with worldbuilder as a minor project?

    Its twice as easy using BMP Converter by Rhye, someplace in the CivIV thread he has one. I used that for 2 years making over 500ish maps. http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=135740

    Oh awesome!



    The other cool one is Seapole. It is growing on me since it makes it so both poles are in ocean. Which means lots of land to colonize. Even Antarctica!

    I wish someone would attempt to make one of these. I am a terrible map maker.

    I do not promise, but I'll try. I have an interesting idea. For now I can only say that the map will remind something of this.
