I always envisioned Teles to be larger than earth at some point.

That was among the initial ideas, but we ruled it out eventually when we realized the scale left the cultures/languages too far form each other.

And I don't picture Teles being any better than Earth at any given point. *googling solarpunk*

Well, I thought you were suggesting that Teles should have a significantly lower gravity than Earth.
And this seems to be what solarpunk is.

Having a significant lower gravity will have very deep biological implications. So that's a no no.
And solarpunk is actually quite pretty, eh. Prettier than all other -punks i'm aware of.

What's the difference between Teles and Old Teles? Why are they both Teles?

I'm assuming "Old Teles" is the original Teles idea (both canon and project-wise).

No, the reason I'm calling it "Old Teles" is because the conditions on the planet mimic that of the primordial soup that Teles would've gone through.

BTW I think we should move A inward to about 0.6 AU.
I kinda wanted A to be a possible terraforming site, that's why I pushed it so far up. Teles is B. It's conditions are largely Earth-like. I would've liked it to be warmer though.

I'm okay with it being warmer, but the fact that A is so close brings about the possibility of the planets destabilizing each other.

I've been wrapping my head on Modern Teles for a while. Particularly in technology. I've been thinking, should we be more advanced than earth some aspects and lagging behind it in others? I've suggested using airships as a mainstream form of transportation in teles back on the skypechat the other day, and me and YourFace have been thinking about a more radically different form of internet.

What do you guys think?

My people will use it, but I guess they might not influence it.

Another question. After the time of the occupied Nautlic Prinipalities, I think Nautli island will not be an independent nation. I do want them to have their own civil code, however. I don't really want them to have their own foreign policy and so on. I thought of one colonizing nation that would accept the different traditional Nautli civil law systems after some struggle. Who would be willing to do that?

Here is a map of Teles, including the poles, that I am pitching.
Any advice, or changes I should make?

Show the globe view, which is far easier to visualize. And layer the tectonics over it if possible.

Sorry, I tried to copy the tectonics but I failed at that.

But here's the globe:

I also forgot, me and the other peeps at Skype have been developing a new wiki for Teles (click on the thing!)

I'd rather not use MediaWiki. It'll be a hassle converting what exists into a usable form. Let's keep with Wikia

I doubt it, I personally do much of the conversion as of yet.

Well, me and Raj are transfering much of the templates over, so it shouldn't be an issue.

I guess I won't be able to move my things on my own. Also there is at least one collaborator, who is not a member of this forum.

It wouldn't be a big deal for if you could reach me at a later point in time. Would that be more reasonable?
