Hello fellow mappers!
I haven't seen any Mapper's Challenges from Luciano lately, so I decided to go on my own personal challenge to map my cities across Belphenia.
For the past month, I started practicing mapping areas in the cities of Some, Maressa Prefecture and in the city core of Sayanahi, Seralia Prefecture throughout June, and I was able to add a few shops and other details in an attempt to practice mapping in Belphenian cities in high detail. Here are the areas I attempted to map in high detail:
I started mapping in Sayanahi as an electric and anime district, and added as many shops as possible. I am also planning to add more details to the city in the future. Sayanahi's electric district
Then I started mapping a new city called Some, in Maressa Prefecture and did my attempts to map in high detail. A new section of Nansei Highland Forest Road (Ryukosha State Highway 4) was under construction since October of last year, and the new section is set to open sometime at the end of this month. Some, Maressa Prefecture
I was able to use JOSM and started using as many details like adding shops, houses, buildings, and other places in high detail. But as my cities starting to get more and more detailed, I started to lose performance to slowdowns and lag when I try to map in detailed areas in JOSM on my desktop computer. It's because I have an 8-year-old desktop computer from the year 2009 and nowadays, my desktop PC cannot handle high details while mapping in JOSM anymore, and I even had to use the Wireframe mode to continue mapping in dense areas until my computer started to run slow on me again, even in Wireframe mode. When I map cities in low detail (like a small, undetailed town, an expressway, etc.), my computer runs fine with those, but I am currently planning to replace my aging desktop computer with a newer, faster, and modern computer so I can continue mapping areas in high detail without any performance issues with JOSM.
If you have any ideas, thoughts, or opinions about my areas, feel free to leave me a comment. I hope everyone will have a great day!
