    Yep, do a poll!

    I don't know what they did, but I think they also used polls. So, yes, it comes down to ... a poll!

    So does this world have plate tectonics or is it some other process/magic?

    Prolly plate tectonics.

    I did indeed vote, and it looks like the world wil be named Atka...

    Have we done proper biomes, ocean currents, and plates for Atka already?

    I am going to keep the poll open for another hour or so. Just so if someone hops in or has yet to actually submit it but it does seem like it will be Atka. Which sounds quite nice.

    Welcome to Atka!

    Who is an expert for Atkan plate tectonics, currents, wind patterns, and then biomes? I think that is the order in which we should proceed...

    Looking at the map, there is an issue with the way there's no islands in the eastern sea. It doesn't "wrap around" so to speak and makes the planet look a little unnatural. I don't know, it bugs me.

    I am quite terrible at those things and I am willing to admit that. My experience comes in with nation-building, culture, and history.


    If you wish to fix it go ahead. Unless someone has a valid reason why not.

    I added a few islands to the chains, just to give it a sense of continuity.

    I think doing plate tectonics first to determine the elevation would make sense, no?

    Well, we've already determined where the mountains are, so either way works.
