its not done yet but im in the process of adding the correct biomes to the proper areas and filling in lakes and rivers. its massive. and it took world painter 7 hours to render my test model. to give you an idea of the size i put down a 100x100 grid over the map.
this is a pic of the test model no specific biomes no trees just dirt, rock, sand, and gravle

see how my method of river making is working, and to scope the Stock Grand Canyon. The biomes are piece meal and not at all clean or exact.
I put them in to make the map less boring. The map has some rough geography that may be angular. After my first map I discovered that smoothing
the textures makes it 100 times harder find the original river valleys. I have completed several rivers which im in the process of testing..
If the results are good ill continue with more rivers. ( iv marked rivers to be with brown paths in grass land green paths in mountains)
Some lakes are missing and oceans are shallow because im not focused on them right now. I moved sea levels from elevation 14 to 65
to help smooth out ultra steep elevations with a fresh render (mixed results)
Spawn in Central Valley California. (iv added my roman fort and Exploration Carrack with gear)
1. Extra Biomes XL 1.2.5
2. Flans Mods
Explore and tell me how to better the map.
new pic gives dimensions. each box on the grid is 100x100 blocks

Biomes will come later after I get the rivers and stuff done

*EDIT*: Nevermind, I know how to download, but srsly, put this on mediafire.com .
Mediafire.com was my first choice. But the file was over 200mb which prohibited me from uploading it there. (as well as 6-7 other sites I tried) dumb luck I found speedysh because it was the only site I found where I could upload the file without a paid membership. This is a free map I don't wanna pay to distribute it :/ sry if speedy isn't very user friendly

Well though the map is mostly focused on the United States i was hoping to have a title that would draw attention to the areas of the map that weren’t in the USA. for instance most of mainland Mexico and almost all of Baja California are on the map. as well as large portions of Canada (mostly in the east north of Michigan) I agree, branding this map a Continent is largely an injustice; but i couldn’t come up with a name that inherently implied that the area outside of the US was also featured.
