    This is my first go at a large landmass think US size. I would like some feedback on my coast lines and my mountain ranges.

    Thanks!

    Large Mountain ranges tend to be close to one or other coasts (eg Rockies and Appalachians, Andes) or where 2 tectonic plates collide eg Himalayas. So I wonder a little whether your major range on the western half should be a little more worn, unless it is a tectonic plate collision. You also have a rift valley in the eastern half, which often have ranges on either side.
    The coastline is terrific. USA improved!

    Easy for you to say: he put my home underwater! ;-)

    The western mountains look okay to me, except the westernmost (the Sierras equivalent) look a little small compared to "the Rockies." Rather than scale the Sierras up, I'd scale the Rockies down just a bit. Nice start, though.

    This is a look at the whole map to maybe give some context to what I am doing.

    Thanks!

    At one time, no idea how long ago, there was an inland sea between what is now the Rockies and the Applachians.

    The Anadarko Basin yes and it is represented in the center of the country.

    I have added some water ways and major river systems. Looking for feedback!

    Thanks!!

    2 rivers look strange to me. The first in in the north-west, where it goes from caost to coastas one river - very unlikely. Second is the river in the north centre, where it goes close to one coast then continues in a south-east direction - strange that it wouldn't end at the coast it bypasses, unless there is an obstruction in the way, like hills. Finally, a number of rivers start at the same origin in the mountains, flowing then in either direction. Quite OK geographically, but perhaps nicer to make the origins a little apart.
    But I like this continent overall. Looking forward to the next installment.
