This is Darlimo, A Dwarf planet with a teleporter thingy
I never thought I would describe a map as cute, but this is it!
I can whip these up in 5 minutes. Maybe tomorrow I'll make a crap ton of them.
Alrighty then. Here is Carigula:
Here is Mariola:
Here is Arduello:
Who wants more?
The one that took me the longest was Carigula, and it only took like, 7 and a half minutes.
I'll make more tomorrow. Posting limit is 3 a day right? I'm kinda new here so...
Pretty much, though there's often varying levels of enforcement, to my knowledge. Like, there's a difference between posting a detailed multi-paragraph writing with four or five pictures than just spamming ten pictures.
I'm going to do this
The planets and moons of my solar system in Micro-WorldA scale (gas giants excluded due to large size). Planets names are in all-caps, moons are not.
Hey y'all, could I possibly have some help with this planet's biomes (and plate tectonics, if it's not too much difficulty)?
So it's tidally locked to its star, but the substellar point is in the ocean so it's formed a raging, warm tempest at its center rather than drying it out to inhospitable levels, which has allowed a stable climate to form beneath the thick cloud layer that circulates from this point. As such, any climate is going to be 'radial', with the very center of the main tempest (The fullest extent of the main tempest is delineated by the blue circle; the red dot is the center) acting as the planet's equator and the climates diverging from there.
This leaves me with two primary problems: I made this map without thinking of tectonics, so I sort of have to retroactively assign them and so I'm unsure where mountains should be. And the central tempest is likely to befuddle the climates somewhat.
Advice? Assistance? I've had a go of it and I'll post that below this image, albeit in a spoiler tag.
Spoiler: My Attempt
I feel like it would make sense for the climates to get progressively warmer as you get to the center, with the areas on the edge of the ice fields largely being polar and or alpine tundra.
As I understand it, with a large ocean like that, the ice cap would be MUCH smaller. Meaning most of the night side would be star lit oceans, rather than pack ice.
Oceans and atmospheres are good at spreading heat around.
Question, is this thread geared specifically towards sci-fi related maps, or are more fantasy oriented maps allowed as well?
From what I’ve been able to see, there has been no attempt, overt or otherwise, to make this a Sci-Fi exclusive thread.
Would anyone here be willing to try to convert a donjon fractal map to Worlda? Like this one for instance:
I love tidally locked settings, I have one of my own, I'll PM you any info I have tha may help
After a lot of work, I have the closest thing we can have so far to a QBAM solar system excluding tiny, distant or completely uninhabitable objects.

Bottom row from left to right shows Mecruty, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto. Those aren't exact QBAM-sized but they're close enough
