Posted by geoboi on 10 May 2017 in English (English)

i have worked hard on Balkaria, but I want to trade it for an unclaimed territory where I can start fresh. i have wiki articles for Balkaria. any suggestions as to what I should do?

You should have started with a smaller territory. It happens to all of us, kind of like a stage of grief, that we chose a territory too large for us.

Balkaria looks good from afar, but up close like a typical beginner country:

  • Massive megapolis style grid cities with even more highway than any place ever.

My suggestion is: Learn to love your country. Adapt its history to that of your neighbors, map it in a convincing way, and please, please, PLEASE, dont make another America on OGF. Try to be creative in a different way.

You can ask the admins to move your territory elsewhere, a smaller one, or ask the admins to cut down the area of your country (splitting into two territories).

Learn to appreciate your country. I initially do not really like my country Singkangia, as it is not really a match for my already-in-my-mind Kanglapo (and Biangsinglia and Kinglavia on an island called Pointochinikia). Anyway, I still adapt my country to a minature Kanglapo-like state in a corner of Archanta. Maybe after mapping significantly and more experiences in mapping (a few years or so), I will request bring in the island-like country Kanglapo (I have not have a sandbox for it yet, but maybe in the next year I will write a brief info about it with Biangsinglia and Kinglavia), with the other countries I have planned, somewhere in the Asperic Ocean.

i am trading it for a smaller territory that I love already, so I can do more by myself instead of building off of other people's work. i barely did anything in that country.

I dont know exactly what do you want - maybe you want a tropical island or a country in the cold side of the world, hehehe.

But if you just think about a smaller territory, as said before (@zhenkang), you can ask admins to cut your territory.

Brasonia, Belgravia and Luslandia was initially the same territory.

If it is not the case, feel free to ask admins about changing to another territory. Well... recently I was "transfering" two cities from Cariocas to Luslandia and Brasonia. Was so much detailed areas, I took so much time. But I dont know if you will create new cities or transfer the "old" ones...
