@TomToad: Just take satellite images from the earth (e.g. from https://worldview.earthdata.nasa.gov), write an algorithm that cuts out "100x100 km" jigsaw puzzle pieces, which should give you around 50'000 pieces, shuffle them and you're almost good to go. ALMOST. To comply with the endless spec, you just let all the pieces on the globe's side facing away from you fall down again :D

So after ~26h of work the game is pretty well playable. Which is bad because I now spend much more time playing than adding stuff. ::)

This is a good sign. Judging will be more about gameplay than anything else - certainly that's how I look at it anyway.

Mine's not even quite playable yet and I've been working on it for six weeks so don't panic :)
