Climateworld by aminoan Climateworld by aminoan
I have no idea what the world's name is (and of course it will vary according to the speakers)... but here it is.

Probably took about 5 hours, both to make the continents and to figure out where the climate zones out. I don't want it to be pretty, just functional, and it's pretty functional, which is good enough for me.

You'll need to fullview if you want to see exactly what all the climates are, but in general:
- RAINFOREST is at the equator line, flanked by lighter green SAVANNA.
- Darker green-blue is the MONSOON area.
- Light flesh color is the WARM DESERT, while darker flesh is the COLD DESERT, while the coastal areas off the cold desert are the STEPPES
- Yellow is MOUNTAINS, the lighter purple is a TUNDRA zone and designates the really cold places where nothing grows.
- White is icecaps and such (I didn't put any on the mountains because ... I didn't)
- Light green is the MEDITERRANEAN, light blue is MARINE. Teal is HUMID CONTINENTAL, bright green is SUBTROPICAL

The color key (ugly as it is), covers up nothing but OCEAN, which I hope you can tell is the gray-blue. XD

How about... Aktaries. Aktí is Greek for "shore" and since it is a war-like society, Aries, the god if war.

Oooh, I like it. Having run it through a sound changer (to make sure it sounds like the local language), I came up with Akataris.

Now, as apparently I did have a name for the culture (Tibov, meaning world's navel or something like that, ti means world, bov means center, navel, middle), Akataris will have to be something else. I'll keep thinking on it. I like mulling it over.

It could be the name of the port/ naval base

Thanks!

No idea yet... currently the main culture is in the small peninsula in the marine biome in the southern hemisphere of the easternmost continent, right above the tundra. I'll get to that middle continent at SOME point. XD

(these places need names)

Having copied and pasted the place, and roughed in some stuff, the area of the kingdom/whatever-it-is is about 312,692 km, or a bit larger than Finland but a bit smaller than the Republic of the Congo. (but it extends beyond the peninsula to the mountain range or so). Of course, this may all change because I'm cool like that. XD

Next... human migration patterns and language evolution.

Later... rivers and actual satelleite vision. But maybe much, much later. XD
