Hello there, everyone! I've just joined OpenGeoFiction last night, and am going to start mapping today.
This seems like an awesome and friendly community to be in, and also just a really neat project, so I'm excited to take part in it.
For now, I'm using the web editor, although I will soon be switching over to JOSM. I just don't feel like figuring out how to connect it to OGF at the moment.
I'm planning on starting out by making a new town in Lonowai District. It will be on the Lonowai Island, above Obaku and in between the 2 forests. (about where I put the location of this entry)
My idea for the town is that it was built after Obaku, Uhola, and Widana Beach. A lot of people were traveling along the river and the roads there, and it seemed like a good place to put a trade center. Thus, the "theme" of the town will be centered around trade. It won't be a huge town, it'll be somewhere between the size of Widana Beach and Obaku. Not sure what I'll call it, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
So yeah, you might see some stuff popping up there over the next few days. I hope to really enjoy participating in this community! Also, if you think I should change something about how I make this town, feel free to let me know. (or just change it yourself if it's something I've already mapped)
