i am confused and worried. I get the feeling that what i do here on OGF seems to be suspiciously similar to what other users are doing. This makes me frustrated, as it makes me vulnerable to accusations of copying peoples work.
And if that happens, i cant say anything against it.
I want to present a case that makes me especially frustrated:
Litvania, and its eastern neighbour, Drabantia.
They are two very similar countries in terms of geography, culture, language and demographics, so for example, the capital cities, Lorava and Odrava, will be very similar. The way that the streets are layed out, how the cities work, what they look like etc...
However, here is the problem:
Whenever something new appeared in Drabantia, i looked at it and said "Damn, that looks nice, shame i cant make something like that."
This lead to me being urged to either copy it, or, try to make Litvania look just like Drabantia.
For example, if you havemt noticed, as soon as Ráj n/Mlžnicí was finalised, Riekava popped up, and even the presentation in the User Diaries is the same. I was ashamed of myself later, however refused to delete it, as i like Riekava myself. Then, when Drabantia's owner started rebuilding Drabantia, it happened about the same time that i aswell started thinking about how bad my country looks still after 5 months of activity.
I need help. I am ashamed of myself, and i need some helpful advice as to what to actually do with this situation.
