Someone Flooded Antarephia... about 1 month ago

The only way to stop climate change is to replace all coal plants with nuclear power made in glorious Pasalia! Only $1,000,000,000! (Coastlines get destroyed on a weekly basis, happens all the time)

Road Names about 2 months ago

Ain't nobody got time to read that all lol. These Road Name Generators seem like a good thing to me. I'll stick to coming up with names myself tho.

Climate Change is a lie invented by Commonia to bancrupt us! (Its a Coast Line tagging/ Rendering issue, happens every once in a while)

Welcome to OGF! I don't think we already have a turkey here, or do we? But aslong as you don't copy it 100% any country/culture is OGF-able. So no Atatürk or Bosporus, but Kebab, and a large population in a gaerman country (hehehe). Anyways, welcome and have fun :)

Introduction 4 months ago

Welcome to OGF and welcome to the beautiful continent of Antarephia. For starters you might want to take an >extensive< look at all the provided FAQ sites and study real life examples. I'd also recommend choosing some location in e.g. Commonia and test out the editing functions. Start Geography first and then build your cities around that. Most people here, me included, make the mistake of diving into drawing some streets and connecting them by highways and calling it a day. Like I said, don't be Like me and waste time on stuff you'll have to delete later. Slow and steady keeps you going and Happy Mapping here at OGF. -The Kingdom of Pasalia

Adding To The Wiki 4 months ago

Take your time with the wiki, don't be Like me who had a billion seperate ideas for ,the best and intense article" and now has a giant mess as Wiki page. The fewer, the less.

I suck at size 6 months ago

Don't worry, I spend my First week here mapping a city the size of a backyard :D You'll learn how to size stuff after a while. Keep it up!

Cycling provision in OGF cities 6 months ago

Kingdom of Pasalia here, I imagine this Country would have a hard time of Gas prices rise because I'm currently working on mapping it as a giant sprawling suburban mess...so... Sorry for the climate Change folks... (There is biking infrastructure on the couple of islands tho.) Puts that on list

'What was' and 'What could have been' 6 months ago

The best real life example is belgium IMHO. Just take a look at how many abandoned projects there are. Was it Antwerpen where they literally build entire Metro lines and then never opened them? Anyways great place to get Inspiration from.

Criticism about Patriot City - Don't Hold Back! 7 months ago

Takes breath Ah yes, the wasteful beauty of american cities, fantastic. What to say about Patriot City? Obviously more detailing is always a yes, e.g. naming more stuff. Or go through a check list of what every city needs, Like fire and police stations, fire and police training grounds, Bus depots, train yards, garbage dumps, power plants (maybe an abandoned one), stuff that you don't usually think about like slaughterhouses, waste water filter plants? But if Patriot City were real I'd live there.

Historical and geographical curiosities 7 months ago

Pasalia has ,PAA's'' (Protected Autonomous Areas) in which allow people to have a municipality in which their own language and culture is protected.

Unable to edit 7 months ago

I've been here since late 2015 and still think josm sucks if even the slighest error occures. I refuse to use that unless some of you fellas cover the bills if I get a Stress-caused cardiac arrest hehe. That being said its correct that ogf is a Computer only site as you can only then map orderly. Keep Calm and Map on. -kf

Turtlefruits DO GO on Pizacyros!!! (funny news article) 8 months ago

Always enjoying references to actual real world memes and pop-culture in general (Can't put pineapple on pizza if there isn't any pizza taps head) Keep it up folks.

Possible origins of Christianity (Christic Movement) in our OGF World. 8 months ago

The Kingdom of Pasalia invites all atheist people, hehe. But seriously, almost all cities in the ,old world' are based around some place of worship. In European-style cities the church or cathedral will often be the center of the city. Therefore whilst not being Set and put in ogf-world its still one of the most important things for human settlements, aside from Access to water and food sources.
