Couple of map images saved with your settings attached. (Looks like a big "+" on these rather than "X" because of bug #17826.)

Hm, yes, the terrain boundaries for desert and tundra are a bit obvious with the large map sizes that are now possible.

I don't know the map generator very well, but maybe the temperature map could be perturbed by the height map more to get more variation in terrain with latitude, or maybe inlands drier or something. (Disclaimer: this speculation may be drivel.)

(size=76, wrapx|wrapy|iso, generator=fractal)

2.4.0 triage: I doubt this is a regression, just exposed by huge maps, so not urgent.

Making large-ish FRACTAL maps creates big X desert patterns, the lands are laid out like stripes, not too natural looking imo. I'll attached settings file.
