Naming international waters

Posted by LemonKing on 16 October 2017 in Finnish (Suomi)

The different seas and bays seem to have no name tags on the OGF map. Searching the wiki reveals that some of the major seas do have agreed-on names like Vinn Sea, Belphenian Sea etc. Is there a reason these names don't appear on the map? I think having name-tags for international waters would be helpful, especially for new users who are trying to get an overview of OGF. It would also be a significant symbolic sign that users communicate and collaborate successfully. Is this an admin issue?

New country Bloregia

Posted by LemonKing on 10 October 2017 in Finnish (Suomi)

Hi guys, I'm a new user, I have been working on my country Bloregia, especially the capital Blöndel, for a few weeks now.

I kind of have a positive problem. I already have a fictional country on paper that I have been developping since childhood: maps, flag, language, history, train schedules, art, literature etc. This country It is "too ready", it would be uninteresting to map it into OGF as such. It is also too much based on real geography.

So I decided to create a somewhat different country. I use some features from my old work, like the language and history and some selected map structures, combined with new ideas. I also intend to save a previous owner's work in SW-Bloregia relatively unchanged.

I have the advantage of already having made some of the usual mistakes of new users in my offline work, so hopefully I can learn from them. I now try to work from small to big, in stead of starting with a network of highways.

Here's some Bloregian history: http://wiki.opengeofiction.net/wiki/index.php/Bloregia

Bloregia is open for all kinds of international relations: diplomatic, economical etc. I welcome embassies, company headquarters etc. in suitable areas of Blöndel, please let me know if you are interested.

Comments appreciated!

Regards, LemonKing
