Restaurant Chains?

Posted by Trombonist2003 on 9 September 2017 in English (English)

Are there any restaurant chains in any country that anyone can use (Like Mcdonald's of the real world)? Please let me know if there is a wiki for this.

I feel as if I improved somehow.

I am really unsure if my work is still unrealistic, but I never really mapped some kind of hotel as detailed as this, so I ask if you think it is nice?

The entire area has an edited coastline which is kind of more realistic, than my other builds. (The entire area is based off of Grand Bahia Principe in Punta Cana, and Sunscape in Montego Bay Jamaica)

I mapped some islands as a future area where the hotel would have scuba diving and a bar nearby just in case the guests would like a drink after they scuba dive.

Other work I have made is a small little trailer park for a friend here.

My friend mapped a park nearby and I added some scenic trails.

I have done some other stuff on Planoria, first off I remade the lake to be realistic.

How is it?

How do I calculate area for an island?

Posted by UltraWorlds on 9 September 2017 in English (English)

Specifically these ones if it matters.

Also Whats up with the Siebenbronn River??

Posted by Kaiteu on 8 September 2017 in English (English)

I don´t know if it was suppose to happen and I dont know what is is but someone edited the Siebenbronn river and now it looks like its dried up and mud is left. (Or something of that sort.

How do I ask to join a nation?

Posted by Kaiteu on 8 September 2017 in English (English)

Id like to get into another nation than just Midistland, but how do I do that? Madistland is getting boring because nothing is every being made rapidly. I want to get into a nation where buildings are being built at a point were I can see a difference.

I don't like my country.

Posted by cibrage on 7 September 2017 in English (English)

I've been mapping it for a relatively short time, but so far I'm not happy with a single addition I make. Everything feels awkward, I don't know where to place streets anymore, I feel like the scale is completely off and I'm copying the real world too much, everything just looks bad and pails in comparison to my neighbors, etc.

But at this point I really don't want to delete everything because I know I will give OGF up pretty much instantly afterwards. So I guess I'll take a break for some time, because my first thought when I think about opening JOSM is "ugghhh, I don't know what to do," followed by "well, that was a waste of time." when pressing upload.

Any advice for what to do to improve or telling me that this is a phase everyone goes through here would be greatly appreciated.

Flooding

Posted by ADB52 on 7 September 2017 in English (English)

Parts of Uletha are flooded in zooms 9-11; I'm aware of an earlier flooding problem, and can see no problems in the coastline maintenance map.

Weekly World #13

Posted by Portopolis on 7 September 2017 in English (English)

The next word is DISASTER.

I have mentioned this before but I live in Houston and Hurricane Harvey has absolutely destroyed our area, I currently have a family of eight living with my family because their house is still under water. I want the word to be disaster as I want to see how people can either-

  • Build a landscape that will avoid a disaster whether it's flooding, landslides or earthquakes or even man-made like an abundance of gated neighborhoods because crime was high, or a refugee camp, (this is pretty hard)

  • Map an area that has been affected by a disaster that again could either be man-made. Leowozy already has a great example in Kalae.

What are the OGF languages which are the equivalents of the real world languages?

Posted by UltraWorlds on 7 September 2017 in English (English)

Like the one for English is Ingerish and French is Franquese?

New language mapping.

Posted by Trombonist2003 on 7 September 2017 in English (English)

Hi. Is anyone mapping their nation's in the Filipino language (Tagalog)? If so, I would like to know what the equivalent in OGF is. Also we should have a map of the tectonic plates so we can see where mountains would be.

Thanks, Trombonist2003

Presentation

Posted by Davieerr on 6 September 2017 in English (English)

Hi! I'm currently not in the possesion of any territory, but I'm working on a city, I'm so lucky that I found this program, for now is that.

Feedback Please!

Posted by Kazuya on 6 September 2017 in English (English)

Hi OGF Community!

It's me again. I have been mapping in my country, Freedonia, for many months now. So, I would like some feedback so I can improve my country. Also, I would also like my country to be like Japan.

Thanks!

I would like to get some feedback

Posted by Eevee on 5 September 2017 in English (English)

Hi!

I have now been mapping on UL080 for a month. The country is now called Eelanti. The country will be based on Nordic area and Nordic culture (mainly Finnish culture). The official language of Eelanti is Eelandese (which is based on Finnish language).

There are already some basic roads, rivers and railways in Eelanti. Some of them are only drafts and they will be edited to look more realistic.

I have also been mapping the village of Peräkylä. There is still a lot to do in Peräkylä but many areas are already mapped. The central part is mainly quite big apartment buildings and some public buildings. The outer parts will be smaller houses. The odd railway is used by the train factory of Peräkylä (Peräkylän junatehdas in Eelandese).

Because this is the first time I map anything this big, I would like to hear your opinions on my work.

Thanks

Eevee

Please check my scale

Posted by ImmortalHawk on 5 September 2017 in English (English)

Hi there,

I just want to see if my mapping is correct with the scale. I have created a small area for experimenting, and I would like to have all of you to check it.

(As of the time of this entry posted, the area may not have shown up yet. If not, use the online editors)

Thanks ImmortalHawk

Is something up with multipolygons?

Posted by TRJ on 5 September 2017 in English (English)

Hey you guys,

I have not mapped a lot recently, but I was planning to start again. I noticed that the map, or maybe only the standard layer, had an update. Some of the coulours seemed different, nothing too dramatic, but then I saw that most, if not all, of my multipolygon relations that I have mapped before have stopped working. The intended result of the mapping is still visible in the Histor-layer and the Topomap, but have disappeared in the Standard-layer.

For example:

http://opengeofiction.net/#map=16/-45.5707/141.8990 The fortress in Zelem, still standing proud in the Histor-layer and Topomap, but submerged beneath the water in the standard-layer

http://opengeofiction.net/#map=15/-45.5251/143.0586 Kolmen and surroundings, the church inside Kolmen is still visible in the Histor-layer and the Topomap, but is gone in the standard-layer. In the surrounding countryside the forrest and the other landscape features are not separated anymore, the forest layer is visible through the grasslands and agricultural areas in the standard-layer.

http://opengeofiction.net/#map=19/-45.65725/142.85881 In my newest town that I was working on, the church is not visible on the square, while in the other two layers it is clearly there.

Did I do something wrong in the past while mapping, or is something wrong with multipolygon relations in the map after an update? Hope you guys can help me with figuring it out.

Thanks in advance

Deleting everything in my new country and starting over again

Posted by ImmortalHawk on 4 September 2017 in English (English)

Hi there,

I would like to know if there is something way that I could delete everything in my new country and starting over again. I got permission a few days ago to edit my country and found out that someone had previously edited in here (with or without permission).

It's hard to delete everything one by one so I'm hoping there's a quicker way.

Thanks, ImmortalHawk

Any Amateur Astronomers around here?

Posted by Litvania on 1 September 2017 in English (English)

Is anyone interested in astronomy? Its been my passion since childhood, and it would be nice to know about and talk with some passionates on the subject.

Something similar to E-series highways?

Posted by austinhuang on 31 August 2017 in English (English)

Hello.

I'd like to propose a highway (Probably motorway-only) network like Europe does, except spur routes. Now the problem is that lots of roads have gaps in between and it'll be hard to organize, but is it generally a good idea?

Austin
