Week One

Posted by ioliver on 28 October 2017 in English (English)

Finally a land is all mine!! Mine I tel you, my precious....sorry, too much Tolkein :-) A week or sort of JOSM practice in Midistland: Talamanca out to the coast and many years of pent up world building, conlanging frustrations :-)

Gweriniaeth Gwalia has been started and at least the center of its capital Lleifor has been set out along with a short Wiki article (structure blatantly stolen from Tircambry). Which gets me to my next point which is what is Gwalia?

Well, a Celtic republic with a number of similarities (language being one) with Tircambry, but with a differing model of government, history and quite likely economic development. A kind of Celtic/Welsh reimagiing of Finnish/Nordic modern history....let's see what happens.

So, next steps...the valleys immediately to the south of Lleifor, to the north will come a particularly nice beachfront, then plans for a larger port in the north east and somewhere in the north the airport...

Location: UL148

It is a good start- I like the detail. Unfortunately, the scale of the town so far is completely off- buildings hundreds a metres wide and train platforms 30m wide. Compare it to a real life city and work on the scale. Once this is fixed, it looks like a great start to a city.

Looks very promising! Really impressive for just a week of mapping experience, looking forward to what Gwalia will become in the future :)

Yes, the scale is off somewhat...I know, but I now also know there's a scale comparison tool (thanks Luciano!). :-)

The main point is to get things started. Been a busy day...should have done something else, eg: use vacuum cleaner etc :-)

If you like some Finnish history look a Karolia.

Croeso! It should be fun having a second Welsh nation. My original idea for Tircambry was a sort-of Welsh Sweden, but I'm not sure there's much that's Swedish in it other than its northern location and the fact that they play lots of ice hockey!
