    Hello all,

    We are starting a new thread for the community to vote & select the best shaped planet for our Alpha Centauri.

    We propose you to vote for a few proposals (around 10, maybe more... depending on what's proposed by myself,Pam & Monty). Please start to process your votes only after all candidates are presented.

    In order to cast your vote, we need you to select 3 choices:

    1st choice = 5 pts
    2nd choice =3 pts
    3rd choice = 1 pts

    So here are the first 4 contenders. Each contender is presented with 3 maps representing ALTITUDE, CLIMATE & GAIA (sort kind of vegetation/climate representation). When posting your contender you can precise the small parts that may be transformed in the final version of the map after it being selected (climate can also be updated by raising/lowering températures)

    1st candidate
    It has a lot of diversity and only changes i see is to open some of the seas that are closed by very tiny piece of land (western part of the right center continent)

    Altitude

    2nd candidate

    Less messy than the first candidates, it is subject also to open the big closed seas on the right side Roughness & altitudes can be also updated it a bit to reach more temperate weather on the top western continent.

    3rd candidate

    One big continent on the west side, a big greenland... not many changes i see for the moment, only play a bit with temperatures & altitudes...

    Changed my mind, the best is Pams 1 although it looks a bit like Earth but also it got the most diversity in climate.

    Okay, my votes:
    1st choice: Monty 1
    2nd choice Dreian 1
    3rd choice: Monty 2

    Although I really like Pams 1st one, I dont want it because its too earth-like.

    Guys, sorry to highjack the voting process, but as i discovered two days ago another option in the software to generate more massive continents... What do you think of a map in the spirit of the following. It has one big massive continent, two smaller ones & some big size islands.. which i think are very suitable for organizing countries, federation...

    To be honest, I like this a bit more than Montys 1st option. It also offers more diversity.
