Hi, again.

Posted by Alsatian on 2 March 2018 in English (English)

I've made a newish town called Mayton Valley. I'd like some feedback on it of some sort, so a repeat of Monmouth can be stopped, because Monmouth was a fail on my part. (Edited thanks to some misunderstanding on both mine and a poster I'm not going to name) Thanks, Alsatian.

Ok let me put it this way this time… if everything you map on OpenGeofiction you use for trying to get attention from others, then it’s pretty obvious that you don’t do it out of passion, which OGF is all about, but out of attention. There are so many great, passionate mappers on this website who have never ever posted a user diary just to show off their work, simply because they create fictional maps rather for themselves, not for others - mapping makes them happy. Does mapping make you happy? Well, if it doesn’t, then you’re probably not a passionate mapper and honey, that’s what we’re looking for on this website.

I agree with Stjur. But, you don't want my opinion on that so, i'm just leaving my opinion on your mapping: Really good on the building side of things, and the road networks make quite alot of sense. Good job.

What you did well was the number and variety of services you created in Mayton Valley. The scale of the buildings is also much better compared to other places you have worked on. The ring road you removed is possibly the best decision of improvement you have made so far.

However, it would be even better if the road naming was more realistic. Currently, the roads in Mayton Valley (and indeed pre-revamped Monmouth) keep having name changes after every intersection for no reason at all, which makes it unrealistic because most roads keep their names until the road ends.

@stjur Your point stands, but that isn't quite what I do it for. I'm still fairly new, and I don't want a repeat of Monmouth, so I like to ask for feedback before I go and screw it up all over again. @NickRod Hmm, thanks. @The_Cute_Chick Thanks. And yeah, the ring road was just an impulsive idea which would have screwed around with a lot of stuff. I think the roads can be an issue when they have the same names, especially/or when it goes on for too long, but combating that leads to the very problem you bring forward.
