I'm back (after yet another break)

Posted by UltraWorlds on 12 January 2018 in English (English)

Hello everyone, I am happy to return to the beautiful world of OGF, and I already started working on some places, particularly the Sanelta Islands as well as a new island. I want to complete the islands before I begin to work on the bigger island, so feel free to tell anything that looks wrong or out of place.

Thanks, Ultra

You're getting there; I like how you try to make a small islands' atmosphere and that you have added some appropriate natural features, but you have some work to do:

First, on Lanufa Island, Mont Chierra is marked to be 600m. high. As the island is small, the top of the hill is only 500 - 750m. from the coast, meaning that any road leading straight up to the top (as Translafuna Road does) has a almost 90 degrees incline... I think your car drivers will hate you for this.

Second, the space between roads is a bit small in places. In Sora-Malania, for instance, most blocks are no larger than 20 by 20 metres, which should be exception rather than rule.

Third, I could hardly find 10 building on all of your property that were decently rectangular. It may be that your natives have developed their own, quite typical, building style; but it might just be easier to use the 'make rectangular' tool for most (all ?) buildings you make. I know it's a hassly (I made a good 2000 so far), but it looks really better.

But overall, the islands are nice and cozily small, and could be detailed in not too long a time. The result could be really worth it.

happy mapping !

Marcello.
