[Request] A Pangaea map with modern borders?: 11/1/2014 16:48:03

It would be cool to have a Pangaea map that had modern day borders.





Obviously, there would have to be some wrapping around from, say, China to Antarctica, or Mexico to Oman, for example. And perhaps Indonesia to Afghanistan?

What do you guys think?

There is no need to *have* wrapping- I would add a (one step?) ship connection with a bounus so that the game host can decide.

P.S Yes, such a map would be really cool :)

So my plans for this:

Bonuses
Based on Middle Earth, most likely, but split up where needed (like Pakistan). Antarctica would be split based on the countrys' "claims" to it.
Modern-day countries would be super bonuses, and the modern day continents would be super-superbonuses.

Oversea Connections
North-South from China to Antartica
Connections between the two Irans, Pakistans, Afghanistan and Indonesia, Canada and Russia via Arctic Lake, and USA to South Iran

I don't like Pangaea maps because they always screwup the old earth. eg America wouldn't have Baja California (or California in general)The Atlantic would be replaced by an ocean or several small seas below sea level, like the Great Rift Valley (of Africa(There's one in Israel.) ). Otherwise, I'm all for Pangaea.

To put it succinctly, If I cut up a human and throw some parts out and glue it together, it doesn't mean I have created a baby. I have created a murderer and a glued up corpse.

Absolutely do not put a North-South Connection. That's just damningly inaccurate

Anything's that missing from Pangaea will not be there as a bonus or a territory. And all "inland seas" on the map in OP will have cross-ocean connections.

But the thread's dead.

I don't think this is clearly enumerated though, in the maps, CAmerica wouldn't exist. It is made of volcanoes that erupted around ~10,000 years ago (I'm not sure of the date). It wouldn't exist 65 mil years ago.

You could make several appropriate connections. EG
Turkey-->Iran
Canada-->Russia

But a large portion of land on earth, especially Indonesia and Tibet wouldn't exist,
The Rockies west wouldn't exist.

The map you gave butchered several tectonic events, especially the fusion of plates. That is the reason why Europe and Asia have a small dividing range, their range formed over 100 mil years. It weathered down. Remember other plates existed too. Expect to make a mid-oceanic island chain for the subduction of the Farallon.

Which Pangaea is this, 65 million or 130 million, they all look vastly different
