I think that I will need to seriously redo my nation, so I am just going to delete everything artificial (i.e. Roads, Cities) and do the waterways and biosphere first.

Thanks, Zekiel

What's with the Question Mark?

I'd like to ask; what kind of traffic lights are in your country? about 1 month ago

Hi. I'm from Canada, and there are two main orientations of the traffic light. Horizontal and Vertical. Most of the provinces and territories use vertical, but Nunavut doesn't have any traffic lights whatsoever at the time of posting. I also used google images as my source and cross-referenced it with other images to make sure, as I have not visited all of Canada.

Vertical:

A Traffic light in Toronto, Ontario with a transit signal, U-Turn signal, and pedestrian signal. Most lights aren't so complicated.A Traffic light in Toronto, Ontario with a transit signal, U-Turn signal, and pedestrian signal. Most lights aren't so complicated.

  • Ontario
  • Nova Scotia
  • Manitoba
  • New Brunswick (Kind of)
  • Newfoundland & Labrador
  • Saskatchewan
  • British Columbia
  • Yukon Territory
  • Northwest Territories (For the few that they have)

Horizontal

A Traffic light in Montreal, Quebec. This is a simple horizontal traffic light, and notice that there are no pedestrian signals. While I visited Montreal, I noticed that the locals just crossed when the light was green!A Traffic light in Montreal, Quebec.

  • Quebec
  • Prince Edward Island
  • Alberta (Kind of)

Others:

There is one Territory that stands out: Nunavut. There are no roads connecting to Nunavut at all, and the few roads that they do have aren't paved due to permafrost. They currently don't have any traffic lights at all, and they probably don't need them, as there are very few cars driving around.

The closest thing to a traffic light in Nunavut. It's pretty self-explanatory.The closest thing to a traffic light in Nunavut. It's pretty self-explanatory.

Sidenote

The 'Kind of' places are the areas that have both orientations in very similar proportions, like this intersection in Alberta:

There are both orientations in the intersection, but for the most part, Alberta uses horizontal.

As well, each Province/Territory has their own way of making a traffic light, so not all Vertical ones will look the same as the one in Ontario.

Telegram about 1 month ago

And getting everyone to go to the chat room if we get one, which is unlikely, will be a massive logistical challenge, as we would need to make sure that everyone gets it, and that all new users get it too.

Telegram about 1 month ago

What if we don't have a large chat room, but instead just Direct Message the person if you really want to do it? I still think that the OGF message system and user diaries are better. But if you really want, just Direct Message the person privately.

OpenGeoFiction Discord server? about 2 months ago

Oh. I can see what you mean by that.

OpenGeoFiction Discord server? about 2 months ago

Idk. Nobody told me.

I asked about this a long time ago.... didn't really end up positively.

Just for some advice. about 2 months ago

Btw, @CoffeeFaucet, I live in those grid cities, and I know that you mean. I took a look at OSM, and I noticed that the Salt Lake City not perfect grid area mostly happens near large freeways, like here. I know that a totally perfect grid is impossible, but I think that based on those patterns, there may not be a need for a lot of them within the city. Still, I will make some changes to the patterns.

Thank you, guys. I am taking all of your advice and compromising between the ones I now agree with, and the ones I don't really agree with.

Crowded Server? about 2 months ago

@zhenkang, what's RW? Real World?

Thanks, Zekiel

Crowded Server? about 2 months ago

Hi. I know what you mean about lag, especially if you edit in OSM. Honestly, I would have to agree more with @eklas. As long as people continue to improve on their old work instead of making lots of new work, OGF will not be filled up as quickly as you may think. Also, it's better to think of that when we're starting to face that problem. We should only focus on what's happening now.

And how do I create intersections within Already-Existing ways?

ok thx

How do I move a group of line without deleting and redrawing them? 2 months ago

Shift Click them all and press M in iD Editor, right?

There may be some problems if the lines are too big.

Thanks, Trombonist2003
