"Funk-tastic my scriptually challenged chums. Have a fractal planet generation script. Iteration between 100 and 500 work good. Don't be too surprided if you get a lot of land on one side and sea on the other - just run it a few time tweaking to params until you get a nice one. The poles and continents controls are NOT a gurantee of land. They just seed the planet with dummy land bits. Also your better off tweaking the mapping before you run the ""map ready"" button as mapping on geospheres is not that great and a bit lob-sided."
