    Hello AH.com community! I am back with an other map project which is 90% useless

    After the QT-map's somewhat success and the Martian Q-bam' completion, my sights is on Venus

    contrary to regular Q-bam maps, the original resolution of the Venus map was 16x times smaller than Q-bam. This means one original pixels is now 16 (4x4) pixels.
    This means a lot more work on my part (and anyone who is interested). however this also means a lot more freedom to freestyle in the map.

    You can see my progress in the top left corner.
    I will try my best to complete the map :)

    If it's colored in, it means it is done.

    Is this map the same size of the Earth QBAM or is it scaled down to be the same size ratio?

    first reply, yey!

    yes, it is the same size (down to the pixel) as Earth Q-bam. Original venus map was 16 times smaller

    I love space exploration. Is this a map for terraforming Venus? - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terraforming_of_Venus

    I think I just asked an obvious question to a simple answer but there you go.

    It looks fantastic. You can just make out the continents, I most of all love the different geographical shapes and how they are placed. It looks strange in comparison to Earth.:D

    Yes it is a map of terraformed Venus! however, there was only *one* map of terraformed venus in the history of Q-bam (In Bam style) and that was 1143 × 616 on https://www.deviantart.com/mattystereo/art/Terraformed-Venus-Basemap-653966716

    A size comparison: upload_2019-7-31_22-42-57.png

    So yes, this is even harder than the Mars one.
    however i must admit, i love how when terraformed, Venus is a Water World, Earth is the middle ground and Mars is the Pangea-supercontinent planet
    pretty neat

    Where is the Mars map? I like to see that one because terraforming Mars is actually more scientifically feasible than terraforming Venus.

    this is very hard, believe me. if anybody wants to help out, please do, but if anybody wanted to help it would have been earlier.
