[SIZE=3]For something different I created a whole new world.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]I found a map of a world on the internet which had dry and wet areas but made extensive changes to it which leaves the previous dry/wet areas meaningless.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]I made 3 maps one without the latitude, one with the latitudes, and a map of various names of oceans, mountains, islands etc. [/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]This world is like our earth, itís just past the peak of an ice age.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]Iím unsure about the overall climate, as thereís so many variables such as ocean currents, positions of continents, mountains, monsoon rains etc. [/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]The Sunderland Ocean especially closer to the Northlands is shallow so it freezes easier.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]The Pabluea Sea is deep.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]For the mountains I created 3 different colors for the heights. The highest mountains are the Great Karstanelle Mountains which are about the height of the Himalayas. The next highest mountains are the lower Trinity Mountains, and the mountains on Belneski Island. The medium color mountains are about the size of the Rocky Mountains or the Alps or perhaps a bit lower.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]Do you have any ideas about the climate, currents etc. Do you have any favorite areas? I welcome you to discuss. I think with everyone on here there can be some consensus of what climate should be like.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]Feel free to make a map showing any ideas you have on Manboria world.[/SIZE]

Preliminary guesses, but I'm guessing there would a lot of favorable climates around Karstanelle and East Griere's ( lol ) highland areas; moist highland subtropical, I'm thinking. Southern Karstanelle looks like it could be in your planet's worst area for hurricanes, though.

Tiaresia would probably have some very strong coastal cold currents. I'm thinking the west coast would pretty much be like South America's, under the influence of the Humbolt current, only as though South America and Antarctica joined. The Waverly mountains probably will have some of my least favorite climates on their coast; oceanic subpolar to subarctic with excessive precipitation.

[SIZE=3]Good stuff![/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]Thatís a good point on Karstanelle Island more likely to have hurricanes. I do wonder how the Great Karstanelle Mountains would affect things here, thought they are more inland[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]I have to have been thinking of having the southern hemisphere having colder ocean currents, as in earth itís like that while in both cases thereís less land. For the east coast of Tiaresia I wonder if Long Island would break up a cold current. [/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]Iím still trying to figure out where the biggest deserts will be at. I figure that they are more likely to be on the west coasts then the east coasts, but again things likely ocean currents, mountains, and the shape of the land are sure to affect this.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]For monsoon rains I read that larger continents are more likely to have this happen.[/SIZE]

Southeastern Tomar should be appropriate for me

We could send Kaul to the Northlands as well.

[SIZE=3]Cool choice The southern end of Tomar is likely tropical as Itís close to the equator. I wish I had more tropical islands but the map I created this from didnít really have any tropical islands. I created Tiaresia and its islands on my own for this purpose. Iíve been thinking of putting in more tropical islands but where?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]For all of the cold, wet and snowy weather lovers they shouldnít have any problems finding places.[/SIZE]

What is this planet's circumference and mass? What is the axial tilt of this new world? How many Earth (hours/weeks/months/years) does it take for it to rotate one time on its axis? How many Earth (days/weeks/months/years) does it take for it to revolve once around its star? Does it have any moons and if so, how many are there, how big are they, how far away are they, and how quickly do they orbit the planet? What kind of star does the planet orbit, and how far away from its star is it? Is its orbit highly elliptical, perfectly circular, or somewhere in the middle? How far away and which hemisphere is more pointed towards its star at perihelion? Aphelion? Is it tidally locked or otherwise in some special spin-orbit resonance with its star? Does it only have one star, or is it part of a binary system? If it is part of a binary system, what is the other star like? How far is it? etc. etc. etc. What is the atmosphere composition, and how thick is it? Etc. etc. etc.

The answers to all these questions and more will help determine many things. Of course you can choose to make up answers to as many or as few of those questions as you want to, or none at all. This is your world after all! Not trying to get overly technical, just trying to give ideas for variables to consider when thinking of what a climate there would look like. And of course, none of it has to be answered at all. This is all just for fun, after all!

I'll have a better look later, but for now

Karstanelle looks good, with its warm position and mountains for cooler climates.

I'm thinking the deserts will be NW Tiaresia, West Griere and west of the southern Trinity Mountains.

This planet is the exact same size of earth, itís in our solar system at the exact place of earth, the sun is the exact same place in relation to earth and it rotates at the exact speed of earth. It has one moon like earth the exact same size and exact same position. It even has pretty much the same sorts of animals as earth. Think of it as being exactly like our earth just with the continents, mountains etc organize a different way.

I also think that the deserts are more likely to be in these areas.

One interesting thing is that in the map I used before I made all of the changes, in the middle part of the southern Goderich Mountains it was shown to be very dry despite being close to the equator. Iíve been thinking that this still stands.
