This is a thread to show off the continents you have found. Lets get the rules and definitions out of the way.

- A continent is a notable landmass separated from other landmasses by oceanic basins.
- They must not be formed by volcanic activity or impact events.
- Please include a picture with the HUD on. ctrl+F11

My personal favorite is Bichromia
Approx. 250,000 Km^2
If that seems small remember that this planet has 1/5 the surface area of earth.

I have found a planet with lots of islands and only one continent. I cannot post its picture or its map due to my currently slow internet speed, but I can tell you its code. Its code is RS 6671-28953-7-1025854-82 1, but replace "6671" with whatever your galaxy RS-code is for NGC 4889 (this can be found by selecting NGC 4889, entering debug mode, and looking at the ID near the top left-hand corner of the screen). I have "6671" in mine because I added some extra galaxies.

Stupid Question: How can I see how big a Continent is?

I just set a certain speed, go across it on two axes, and then multiply the time it takes times the speed for both axes. I multiply the answers to get an area. I will do this multiple times to narrow the estimate down for accuracy.

DenebStarFTW, Your continent is ~13 Million square kilometers
Australia is nearly half that size.

Portalmell, I think that looks like some post-apocalyptic game world

Apparently, I'm too dumb to calculate the Size of it, but I like this Continent.

Don't worry about it, your continent is 10.5 million Km^2.
The closest i could try to replicate the photo is this.



Mine has less epeiric seas then you, not sure why.

Might I suggest the use of the terrain extractor for this thread, on top of the 'from orbit' shots? That way you can get a better picture of what the continent looks like head on, especially for darker planets.

Conla Xia on Ioth Xi-Xia is my fav continent, I feel it could make for an interesting colony.

I made this map from exports from SE, This continent is on the pole so a strait export was impossible. I am also wondering how big would it be? I am also offering a map like this to who ever wants it.

Vocenae, Yes, you should export continents for maps. One day i plan on having them all to scale in a single map. Here's Bichromia mapped.

Color map


Spec map

Quontex, 21 Million Km^2, It appears to be a rifting continent with depths lower than 1.5 Kilometers recorded in the rifting basin.

21 Million Km^2

Seems a bit high, the planet is only .6 the diameter of earth, Are you sure your using that in your calculations aswell?

I know, I'm planning to draw a proper map of the continent with labels and what not.

My calculation is independent of planet size. Can't wait to see your map though.
