Great idea. Looks like you did some research. I came across this site. http://merkel.zoneo.net/Topo/Applet Anyone who's interested in what the world's land masses will look like at different sea levels should check it out. You can type in any rise (or drop) in sea level. Try around 300 m and pepperonibread's map is dead on.

Africa is going to be quite difficult to hold I imagine since it's split in two by the red zone. And the southern half of Africa is too isolated imo.

Love it Keep going.... But I think That red band needs to be worked a little ... Maybe smaller or transparent, something it takes away a little from the whole...

Maybe take some advice from that. Maybe it can help. Otherwise i love the map. great idea was thinking about it myself.

and to respond to DiM's comment, it has to deal with areas closet to the ice caps as well.


I don't know. that map doesn't make that much sense either. why is Florida still above water? why is there that new continent in the pacific. what is this based on?

sounds like a great map wade but the uninhabbitable zone should be less of a pop out thing. and bonouses need to be adjusted but looks really great. and in response to the comments about global warming, its just for the fun of it were not sayingf its true it is just a general idea

I don't understand... other than the fact that it looks kinda different, how is this map different from Classic or World 2.0?

ok, heres the map that i based my map on
in photoshop, i eliminated all of the lowest elevations of green, and got my landmasses from that
since this is a satellite picture and antarctica is covered in ice, it pretty much looks like a huge plateau, but im not sure if when all the ice melts off some of antarctica's lower elevations would flood. antarctica could just be a plateau without the ice. again, im not sure.
and about the uninhabitable zone (red band), when i changed the image from a photoshop doc to a jpeg, some of the colors got a little weird, but ill fix that soon

You should not erase the water covered land, but fade or blur it out. It would show the global warming effect more and it would just plain be cool. The thermal image would look cooler as a base, and show more of the global warming aspect. You could just use black lines as dividers and throw in some cool science/math blurbs... :D Have fun with it!

I think that you should make the red band only in certain areas in the equater and make it uncrossalbe. Along with that It doesn't look much different from classic or world2.1 do something to shake it up :idea:

I agree with those that have said this doesn't offer much over Classic or World 2.0. I'm just not sure we need another map of the world.

Personally I'd find it much more interesting if it was focused on a particular area that was heavily affected. Just as an example, say it was based in Europe... I'd like to see some more islands and perhaps even go as far as having marshes or swamps as impassables along with some desert areas?

I think the uninhabitable zone color should be toned down a bit. It's almost impossible to see the territories behind it.

ok, i guess i need to clarify this in the map key
the uninhabitable zone is an impassable border except for along the ocean routes that go through it, so, theres no territories in the uninhabitable zone

I like it but the red zone "pops" out too much. Great idea though!

Um, I hate to be a naysayer... but this map is very much like classic and 2.1. Also, it is somewhat inconsistent. If the water level has risen to the point where Russia (including the Ural Mountains) all but disappears beneath the ocean, then I think that Hawaii and French Polynesia would disappear too... Just a thought.

Wade, maybe you should clarify this, too. French Polynesia and Bermuda and all those other random circles and man-made ports.

maybe UK should be called Scotland, as that's really all that seems to be left!
Where has Mount Snowdon gone, I wonder... probably to small to register at this scale...
