New Basmia Plans...Again (help needed)

Posted by BillionPenny483 on 10 February 2019 in English (English)

I forgot to mention this in my previous post, so I'd like to ask if anybody wanted to collaborate on the coastline of my soon-to-be revamped country, Basmia. I'm absolutely hopeless at coastlines and natural shapes, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Please DM me if you're interested.

Thanks, BP483

Sometimes it's helpful to look for a real-world inspiration.

Here is a real-world location at similar latitude (20° N instead of your 19° S), same direction of coast.

https://tile.opengeofiction.net/util/map_scale.html?map=C/10.377580447104815/-19.67691/137.52489&map2=OSM/x/20.62182/-105.33331&pxpt=0.277&scale=400000

I am NOT suggestion you COPY this real-world feature. Rather, it can give you a feel for the sorts of shapes that would be natural and fit well in the location, and the degree of "fractalization" (amount of "zig-zagginess") of the coastline for it to appear realistic.

Good luck and happy mapping.
