Random Names

Posted by Jesus Antonio on 2 April 2018 in English (English)

I think that a lot of new users, create countries with no etymology (not derived from a word) like Peaceland or Buildtion, even Iceland and Greenland have an etymology. I think there should be a guide for that to make OGF more versamilitude.

PD: Is ironic that Greenland have a lot of ice and Iceland having a lot of green grass.

Important stuff

Posted by MapUser on 1 April 2018 in English (English)

As I am drawing and sketching ideas for the country such as places for major cities and rivers and natural features, I was wondering how would I add important places? For example, a capital city? I may only have like one place but I was wondering, since other countries do and how would I put it on here?

Bus Map for Downtown/Central Quentinsbrgh

Posted by Ernestpcosby on 31 March 2018 in English (English)

I've felt a bit stuck in my normal mapping lately, but my home city irl just did a major revamp of their bus system so I'd been thinking a lot about buses and routes lately. I decided to make a QUARTA bus map for central Quentinsburgh based on the routes I'd listed out on the QUARTA wiki page!!

The PDF is here:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1XcvmZwxNy4rLSnduWoYwB6vKeiyW6-V8

Technically this is "West-Central and Downtown Quentinsburgh", since "Central" refers to the area in the very middle of the city, east of what's shown on this map.

These routes are subject to change of course, but since the roads in the area other than the islands (hence the unnumbered bus routes) are pretty much complete, I thought now would be a good time to show you guys. Blue C routes are "Crosstown"/frequent service routes, the red are just regular local routes. Express buses aren't listed yet. Gray in the background is QLine Metro & Metro BRT, and the green and light blue are streetcars that run through downtown.

Feedback on routing would be helpful.

I still need to do a lot to it, like add transit centers and subway stops, but I think the general idea here is pretty far along.

(Alas my old laptop recently got stolen so I lost the subway map I'd been working on for the last year... but hopefully I'll be able to get started on that again at some point too)

Country Approval

Posted by MapUser on 31 March 2018 in English (English)

So I got my own country. What now? Of course I need to read Guidelines and articles, and add the features, but will this take long? my country is right near Commonia, AR047 at the time of this writing, and my official name will be Nagea. So, this will be an interesting experience for me. I hope I can do well.

Lenox the Project

Posted by GregoryLoss on 30 March 2018 in English (English)

Hi everyone,

As I planned, the downtown portion of my city has been completed and I now have to create some residential areas of my new projected city Lenox. It has turn out to appear great on the outside but looks quite rushed when zoomed in on, either way I did my best, I decided to leave New Atlantia and make Lenox maybe the best I've ever done!

If you would like to suggest what I should change in my city then, Proceed!

First

Posted by MapUser on 28 March 2018 in English (English)

So I don't know exactly how this works. If it's about experiences, then all I have to say i that I should try a new place, since I've been editing only in Commonia and West Commonia. I have sent my second request for my first territory, awaiting approval.

A new Pogreenia

Posted by TheMapper27 on 28 March 2018 in French (Français)

Hello. As i am writing this, i just finished deleting all 912 features on my island nation called Pogreenia. The reason is because i want to re-invent my nation.

My ideas for a new, re-invented Pogreenia

Minor extensions east, southwest and northeast

  • I would like to have small land extensions made into the east, southwest and northeast portions of the country made for me. That is because i do not know how to do it.
  • And as always, when making land extensions, you always have to set a new 22km maritime boundary. I also do not know how to do it, so it will have to be done for me.

Quebec-style highway numbering

  • My new highway numbering system will be based off of Quebec's system.

New country name

  • I would also change the country's name, as "Pogreenia" sounds a bit corny to me. You can leave suggestions below.

Regards, -TheMapper27

Drawing faster

Posted by CaboAzul on 27 March 2018 in English (English)

Does anyone know how to draw something faster, I.E. a long river?

Le feedback

Posted by UmgangsCool on 27 March 2018 in English (English)

Hey all!

I've just recently started mapping on Opengeofiction and created my first Town Hev and i would like some feedback on it. I also edited the local coastline as best as i could.

Upgrading Klausburg

Posted by tule00 on 25 March 2018 in English (English)

Hey everyone,

One of my best cities is Klausburg. Some people may know it from earlier, but now I've made a lot of additions to the city. I've drawn the railroads to some point; also, I have drawn ring roads (the northern primary road and the southern trunk road).

So, what do you all think?

Best regards

Ugric / Yurelic languages in OGF

Posted by LemonKing on 22 March 2018 in Finnish (Suomi)

Finnish and related languages seem to be well represented in OGF, but not yet very organized. I made a draft in the wiki to get an overview of the situation, to help develop a common history for Ugric / Yurelic languages and to help harmonize some content. Please let me know if I missed or misunderstood something. Thanks! Happy mapping to all! - LemonKing

Continuing To Build Albert (Peaceland)

Posted by FancyFoxy on 22 March 2018 in English (English)

The country of Peaceland is very incomplete, so please don't comment on that. I only want to talk about Albert.

I have been working on the city of Albert for a while now, and I'm both proud and not satisfied with what I have made. While I love the downtown region of Albert, the road designs throughout the city feel off and unnatural. If anyone could help me figure out what to do, I'd appreciate it. Still, I've made a small bus map for Albert: I plan on extending all the lines shown in the map, but I only had bus routes for downtown as the roads everywhere else are subject to change.

I have also made a Wiki article for the city, if you want to read it.

Ladies and Gentlemen! A new country is born. By the way, is not very mapped (absolutely nothing) but soon you will found something there.

Stuck.

Posted by geoboi on 19 March 2018 in English (English)

I feel quite stuck. A little overwhelmed. A lot, actually. I unfortunately feel as though I have lost my fiery passion for mapping that once blazed prominently. I've found myself looking at the map of this world more than contributing to it. I feel like JOSM is too scary for me to use (i'm on a macbook), and that the iD editor only permits minimal detail. I'm bad with graphic design. I feel as though there is too much work involved to make Leresso a realistic-looking country. I don't want to give it up, as I have come so far. But maybe giving it up is exactly what I need to get the fire going again. I just thought I would share this with the community of talented mappers to get advice as to where I should go. Any and all advice is welcome.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! But for OGF...

Posted by austinhuang on 18 March 2018 in English (English)

The places that St. Patrick's Day is observed (Or holds St. Patrick's Day Parade) does not necessarily have a significant Irish ethnicity population. So I wonder that are there any ethnical holidays that are observed through many parts of the world, regardless of the ethnical concentration?

To be honest, there are few dates for the people on the OGF world to celebrate. I think maybe we should create a Google Calendar to mark all these days?

For some reason I can't click on any ways.

Posted by plainoldbread on 18 March 2018 in English (English)

Whenever I try to click on a way in iD editor it wont get selected.

RE: Berwick

Posted by GregoryLoss on 15 March 2018 in English (English)

I have revoked on working on Berwick and have decided to continue on my past project on New Atlantia in the location below I have a solid idea of how i'll do it, and it'll be more successful than Berwick I think.

The Location is here because the map thing wouldn't work
