This map is based off of actual NASA topographical maps of Titan, a moon of Saturn. This map is filled with icy terrain, and provides a tough challenge for players to keep up with waring neighbors and the harsh environment.
The Map of Titan
Someone motivated me to start doing alot of the planetary maps.
This is an interpretive map. Areas on the NASA Cassinni scans that had low albedo were designated by water. Rough areas with very high albedo were the peak/hills regions. The medium albedo regions are a combination of ice terrain and tundra.
You will notice that the waters are surrounded by plains. This was merely for playability. A civ can't survive without a little food, eh?
The Uranium is in the mountains and there are very few biological resources. The map has 8 or 9 players, but you can change that in Custom Scenarios section.
Otherwise it is a normal map, and please feel free to use or modify or improve upon it, but just let me know coz I'm interested in all things Civ!
