1 Proposal | Carmington Lake/River on Sat Oct 06, 2012 5:22 pm

I have noticed that Euphemia doesn't really have the great lakes or the St. Lawrence River. In this proposal, a new lake (and possibly more) and a river will be added to the map to represent the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River on Earth. Here is my sloppy drawing, I'm sure someone else can do better and possibly add more lakes.

The Missoula River is shown emptying into this new river, as well.
Kaskaskia Map:
There is also a border change for Acadia and Ivouixkaw to adapt to the new lake.

I'd like to hear your opinions on this and any help/modifications are welcome. Smile

If you could add more lakes in that area, preferrably more into Ivouixkaw, I would be eternally grateful. Very Happy

I want more lakes there, its just that I'm awful at drawing borders and bodies of water. Razz This could help with Euphemia being able to fit more members in, with those landlocked countries becoming less landlocked.

Great. Smile I still need some help with drawing out more lakes. Possibly someone else in the cartographic committee. Razz

I've added some more lakes, but it is still very sloppy. Razz

Yeah, Jon is much better at these things than I am. Razz He could probably help with the names, too.

If it could be in the NPC's it'll be great. I was thinking of a Great Lakes country on Earth, but now that Adonia's getting the Great Lakes then I might get a nation on Euphemia. Very Happy

We could be neighbors! Very Happy I want the lakes to be bordering Acadia, Shayden, Ivouixkaw, and the river on the Kaskaskia/Acadia border so all countries share them.

Still, help is needed on this.

Okay, before I get into my ideas for the lakes (which I am all in favor of), I have to ask why a second river is necessary, the Missoula is a very large river and can support shipping (it is based of the Mississippi.) Additionally the Wabash River currently follows a portion of the route of this new proposed river.

I've highlighted the areas that I have always assumed the rivers followed my borders, because that is not necessarily clear on the map. Obviously since you can't really see it on the map I'm open to changes, but the new river would make the Wabash a very odd river.

(This is the new cleaner map Chip made me, thanks to him for that, even though I've gone and marked all over it)



I know Kaskaskia is being a thorn in the side right now, but if you are nice to us we'll let you use our river. Razz

I'm working on a quick little map overlaying Kaskaskia's water features with the new plans and my proposals for when I share my ideas. I like the initial shape of Lake Carmington, but that branch of the bottom seems odd to me.

I agree. I just realized after taking another look at your map, that with this proposal, I would be creating an unrealistic island in south-west Kaskaskia.

I would be very happy with you just completely taking this over, as I'm not good at this kind of stuff. I did like the idea of having a river form part of the Acadia/Kaskaskia border, so I assume the Wabash River can follow it. Smile

I agree with the bottom branch part. (It is a flipped Lake Michigan Razz ) I look forward to your ideas.

I drew this up, not completely sure about it. Obviously the rivers in Acadia are just kind of speculation as to the course and you can move them wherever you like. The new names I used are the names of some random explorers. I stopped drawing the course of the Missoula after it stopped following borders, but it would ideally got to a source in the mountains in Western Euphemia.



What do you think about that?

I love it! Very Happy That is absolutely amazing. I have no idea how you do it.

About the source of the Missoula River: I could see that weird border of Folland, Fraesia, and Ivouixkaw being a mountain range, so the area you picked is perfect.

I believe there is a mountain range on the Satellite Map in Folland, but not knowing exactly where it is I was going to leave the course past that point up to Mike.

Yes there's a large mountain range along the western border of Folland.

Yay lakes. I like water.

Bump

The discussion here has sorta died down, anyone want to share any thoughts or propose anything different?

Would you like to plot a course for the river to a source in those mountains beyond where I have ended it Mike?
