So i really want to have this town, Záhorská Bystrica in Litvania. I want it on the other side of the Micheny mountains.
Its name really means "behind the mountainous-bystrica".
Unfortunately it is a 2,500 people settlement in Slovakia. Can we make the exeption?
Just wanted to let you know! Litvanka is on Twitter!
Let me know if you wanna get featured! (I already included some places i think are extremely impressively mapped)
good march to everyone! Ill let everyone know about my work somewhere in the middle of this month.
There is still plenty of languages to fill in this gap.
Go ahead and translate Litvania's name if you can.
I shall go on a mapping spree (or rampage?) the next few weeks to get some good looking mapping done in the Molburg Regions. Stay Tuned...
Theres only one thing i need help with. The boundries. Ive read the wiki many times, and i dont seems to get it. Can someone please help?
Is Beeper still a thing? Whenever i click on any of the link that take me to the website kooper.tk, it never connects with the server. As if the site never existed. Please let me know, because i would love to create a thing for republika.lk magazine!
After @eklas ' diary entry, i created a page titled "Slevic" for all the Slevic languages to put on as a family. There is just one problem. The name Syrillangan (i am repeating eklas' words) does not sound normal to the Syrillangan person. However, the other names propsed sound too similar to "Slavs" or "Slavic".
There is a problem in this because we need to come up with a name that makes sense, isnt biased on Russian spelling, and sounds normal to the Syrillangan person.
Please i would just like to say:
There are multiple linguistic, cultural, religious and mentality differences between West and East Slavs, please do NEVER CATEGORIZE US AS ONE BIG GROUP OF THE SAME PEOPLE. It annoys the hell out of me, and i wanted to emphasize that we are not the same as the Russians. We have different ways of doing things. Including spelling.
Here we can discuss this issue:
I would like to announce that; after delivering its first 20 aircraft to a foreign airline(BalonisAir), i am putting up an offer for you guys to select any MIC aircraft of preference (their descriptions and info on the company are here), and use in your airlines on OGF.
I am aiming for MIC to be the OGF version of Airbus, and i wanted to get a headstart in the industry.
Please let me know if you want to order below.
I just wanted to annouce that Loravia International Airport is open for many more intercontinental flights! Make sure to let me know if you want your airline(s) to fly there.
Also, check this out: New section in litvanka article
My recent obsession in OGF seems to be air travel. I mean it. I have created 5 airlines that are based in Litvania already, with barely enough mapping to support that. I need your advice. What should i do? I want to help the OGF world develop its aviation industry, for more airports, more developed and structured Callsigns, Airport Codes.
Spent all day in the field today. The team caught a terrible cold, and i had to do most of the work for the mission. Hiked up the West Peak aswell, and admired the blizzard for about 30 seconds, before eventually walking back down the slope in a hurry, to get to the warm comfort of the dorms.
The research for today was complete, but was really messy and unorganized. Unfortunately, Mr. Špihlerov will not accept that as an excuse. We are boarding a Cosmos(Litvanka's ultra long haul aircraft) MIC-L300 for Loravia via Latina in 2 days. Apparently its already on its way.
Anyway, ill write tomorrow, when the sun will set at 15:00PM.
I have an idea:
What about an International Ulethan Motorway network?
This would basically work like the real world E-** road network, and would span the entire continent of Uletha. I believe this would fix the messes that people maoe when mapping highways, and would certainly improve international border crossing.
My ideas are:
-The roads would be numbered from U/I/M-1
-They wouldnt have to be newly built roads, but rather a layer on a layer.(i.e we would simp,y take the nice motorways that people build and add an international number to them)
-They would start somewhere in Pretany, Kalm or possibly the countries in western Uletha, and would slowly spider outwards into the northern and eastern regions.
Is there anything thats going to happen this year on OGF?
Last year for example was the Quentinsburgh 2016 Geolympiad.
Guys, still calling for destinations for Litvanka!
Also, would any aerospace companies in OGF (SAI, Watanabe etc..) like to sell some aircraft to Litvanka? So far Litvanka only posesses aircraft from the Litvanian Aerospace company, MIC Aerospace. (I have had this made-up company since i was about 6 years old)
I am looking for volunteers to design liveries (or a livery) for Litvanka. I do not posess the technical knowledge of photoshop to be able to implement my livery onto aircraft photos.
how do i find which way my runway is going?
I have lately been working on an airline for Litvania. That is Litvanka Airlines, which will be the flag carrier. It is an airline that operates from Molburg-Ošina, and aims to fly all around the world, with serving at least two airports in every Ulethan country(if the country has two).
Ill start work on the wiki page later.
Another airline im working on is Horjene z.a, a regional airline based in Tirstená. It operates in and out of Litvania, flying mainly to tourist destinations. It an extremely popular low-cost Litvanian airlines, and will hopefully become the EasyJet of OGF.
All i need for you guys to help is destinations. If you want to add your airport(s) please leave a comment in the following format:
#Comment that you want to make (optional) ##Litvanka: Destination 1, Destination 2* ##Horjene: Destination 1, Destination 2*
*You dont have to choose both, choose the one that suites your country's location. For example, Horjene will not fly to Mahhal.
My original post seems to have been lost to the sands of time so...
I want to get back to the topic of the thread: MOLBURG/MOLÍBOR/MOLIBÓRZ/МОЛИБУРГ
I need your feedback for Molburg. Before i go further and mess anything up, and need your opinions on: location, layout, buildings, street layout(IMPORTANT), etc...
i am planning on the population to be around 500,000
I am really proud of my progress so far, but i am in need of opinions.
Happy New Year, and Happy Mapping Guys
Hope you all have a great 2017, and that you do things that no one has ever done!
I only joined officially in like October, but i believe i have made huge progress (as well as mistakes) when working within Litvania. I have worked primarily on roads, railways, small towns, larger towns and a city, and geography. All these i believe have improved my skill in editing the Opengeofiction maps, as well as using them for editing OSM (i also contribute there).
I would like to thank certain people for there special efforts to help me and to help me understand certain things here at OGF.
@eklas - You helped me alot with getting Litvania into JOSM, which i was really happy about, however now things are okay, and it works when downloading and editing areas from the OGF map. You also did a great deal at the beginning, when i only joined, you sent me links to FAQ's, you answered certain questions etc... I am really greatful for all your efforts in helping me to get accustommed to OGF.
@Luciano - You helped me with the video you posted on Youtube about how to use JOSM with OGF. It did great help, and now i know how to use JOSM a bit more.
@Demuth - You welcomed my concession idea, which i was expecting to be rejected violently by most other people.
Everyone else who helped me with thise magical site i am really thankful to, as a year before now, i was starting tomthink about creating one myself.
So yeah, thanks to you all. I am really appreaciative, and greatful for all you efforts.
Since its after Christmas, and its also before new year, i would just like to thank to all the admins and people who have helped me so far.
Its really been a pleasure working with you guys, and i extremely appreciate what you guys do here every day to make this website a better community. You put in all this effort and work into this website and its content, as well as community, that i really admire you and i am happy to be working on this website with such wonderful people.
Really. Thanks to all of you!
The previous post on the Diary Entries (I was too lazy to look who it was), got me thinking.
What do you want your country to be the real world equivalent of?
I think of say, Drabantia as the equal to Czechia. I am aiming for Litvania to be a very similar country to Slovakia.
What do you want to do make your country like?
Why are the awkwardly placed countries like Slavonia, Florescenta, Scandmark and Swaldia so empty?
I thought a mapper was only allowed to work on 1 project, and when he/she works on one for considerable amount of time, and maps it out in enough detail, then he will be allowed to work on other territories.
Meanwhile @Andy breaks the rules, somehow aquires 5 territories, and leaves them half finished. Also i would like to know why he used multiple real place names in his mapping(Ljubljana, Zagorsk, Hastings, Königstein)
This is not an attack on @Andy, rather just constructive criticism.
I have a quick question:
Is it possible to enable editing in iD at zoom levels like 13 or 14?
It really is annoying when you im working on something, and then load a larger render, only to find a horrendous creation of "god-knows-what".
Please explain why if it is not.
