Hey!
I'm creating and working on a map at the dinosaur age.
Here is the link:
https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=57810
Send me a message if you want to help me (give me advice), it will be very apreciated.
BTW the map is at the age of dinosaures.

maybe instead of saying '(dinosaur)', say ' - Jurassic Period'.
You should seperate borders of bonuses so they don't overlap, as its good to see both colours at a border. see this for halp https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1NTfstv7aP0zAOMnjkY0AR8BNM-v3pYbxbjvckyxgwII/edit#slide=id.g132d0e1f17_0_52
also check that army numbers of two digits do actually fit on the territories, im a bit concerned about the british isles ones and iceland.

@LoXIV, unless you intend to further divide every territory and make each one a bonus, this map won't reach 'a couple hundred' territories, but otherwise, this map looks pretty good

@TeeMee: The dinosaurs actually lived through three geological periods - Creaceous, Triassic and Jurassic. They collectively form the Mesozoic era.

Well I think most people associate dinosaurs with 'Jurassic' and haven't heard of the mesozoic era, so they wouldn't then know what the map relates to. "(Dinosaurs)" sounds childish but "Mesozoic" is not in many peoples' vocabulary and 'Jurassic' just fits in between.

why do you guys talk about dinosaurs? =D this is about the land mass not the fauna. btw it is cretaceous...

anyhow, why do you call your map laurusia (btw laurussia) and gondwanaland? it is a pangea map. Iexpected to see laurussia and gondwana seperated. and the union ended in triassic, so your map is most certainly not jurassic...

beyond that, it`s once again a carelessly made map... You could at least make clean borders. you are obviously proud about your work, so I hope, that I didnt hurt your feelings.

EDIT: could you possibly show your source map?

EDIT: EDIT: dinosaurs age was somehow more precise than jurassic period. =D

The borders still look messy. Maybe consider to improve them. I already mentioned: this is not what the earth looked like in Jurassic. Better call it Triassic. There is a missing connection: Ethipia, Somalia and Eritrea - Northern India

Triassic:



Jurassic:



Personally I find the map to be a bit closer to Triassic than Jurassic, but it also looks a lot more like Pangea than Laurasia/Gondwanaland.

Also there are already some cool Pangea maps with cleaner borders already up ^^

https://www.warlight.net/Map/15973-Pangea-Medium
https://www.warlight.net/Map/16170-Pangea-Ultima

About clean borders: I recommend instead of making straight bezier lines for each territory, that you, idk, mix it up a bit by either doing something like in Rise of Rome (very good use of bezier by adding variation) or using the pencil and then simplifying the lines :D

Also there are some very basic spelling mistakes, like "Ethipia", "Caribean", among others, but that is just me being a pedant. xP If you want it to look as professional as possible I suppose I could spellcheck it.

Not a bad foot to start on though! :D

I will graduate my geology studies next month. Although Im not an expert in historic geology, I got in contact with this topic several times in the last 7 years. You can call it JURASSIC or DINOSAUR AGE or what ever you want, I dont really care. those are only hints to improve your map - which is the reason why most map makers start a thread in this sub forum.

To be honest, among more than 1000 maps, that already includes some high quality pangea maps, your piece of work will instantly go to the map graveyard, if you dont want to include the most basic features.
