|Final Terrain Map|
By way of comparison, here's the original 36-mile per hex map, showing the underlying terrain types.

Rather than doing this hex by hex, I'm going to treat this as a virgin continent, and send in a bunch of randomly generated expeditions to do the exploration and settlement for me. These won't be parties of adventurers, instead they'll be colonists from Somewhere Else (TM). Where exactly I haven't decided. I'm sure some random tables culled from random games will provide answers to that.
I also still need a name for this whole project. I'm leaning toward Coast of <something> given the generally coast-like layout, but I'm terrible with names. Ideas?
Oh and if you're interested in how much space this actually represents, here's a chunk of the US Pacific Northwest that roughly matches up to the hex maps above.
