Tarott EXPOMONDIALE 2018 world exhibition - Choose a parcel of land for your nation's pavillon 9 months ago

@ilikemaps: This is my problem aswell. I'm trying to come up with ideas but at the same time imagine pasalians to be a bit... well... Imagine elderly people and their , This new fancy technology is gonna turn everyone into braindead commies"- additute. So i thought of some topic like ,An Analogue society in a digital world' but I have no Idea how anything like this would be done. Maybe solutions for elderly people to adapt to 21st century Tech?

The headache that is Trevers 9 months ago

I feel you... Started with my capital city on the tip of a peninsula, realised after some redoing it still sucks. So now I decided to eventually map a City further West as the original capital, which then was relocated to a new futuristic City more to the east. Aaaaand I left some parts of my original city to be a University City Because I loved some things there (the fort I did or the wonderful Botanic garden which was done by Udi if I remember correctly.) So dont worry we all have these ,,Man... This place Looks awful..."-moments. I still do, I Just map along until I kinda like it. Don't give up Happy Mapping -Kingfries

Tarott EXPOMONDIALE 2018 world exhibition - Choose a parcel of land for your nation's pavillon 9 months ago

Love the idea. I'll think about something and come back later. Count me in for this.

Cross-border checkpoints 9 months ago

For Inspiration for mine I Took a Look at the US-Mexico Checkpoint near San Diego and the former Checkpoints between East and West Germany. I included several Lanes going into each direction where you First Pass the initial Checkpoint and after that there are turn around lanes in Case you are denied entrance. Only after that is the actual border. http://opengeofiction.net/#map=15/-47.3758/68.7249 and http://opengeofiction.net/#map=17/-47.83154/67.84285

Ordyo-Puntick Metropolis / Going International 10 months ago

,,In the 20th century, when utopian/distopian cultural movements appeared in Yuris, the idea became even more desired. When Puntick started to have urban and social problems, it became imperative to find a solution. President Lenz B. Albano sugested the construction of Ordyo in 1957, the "dream became true" in 1962 and a new capital city was born.'' This is exactly what happened in Pasalia. The new capital city build in the 50s-70s (inspired by Brasilia and others). Sounds intersting to say the least.

Luciano's Mapper's Challenge #11 - February, 2017 - Another day, but not another motorway 11 months ago

Would like to participate, although Pasalia is supposed to be quite suburban (endless suburbs, fastfood restaurants with drivethroughs, and loads and loads of land being reserved for cars.) So I'll pass this months challenge.

Events in 2017? 11 months ago

I believe a expo/world fair would be great! Everyone has their own fairs but a central worlds fair would be great

Including all the different faculties, auditoriums and other university related things, aswell as normal stuff like parking and etc.

Happy Mapping to all of you, I'll stay in contact with you. Kingfries

Nerschach, a capital's name? - Or: The problem of naming large cities 11 months ago

Hm not quite sure about that, But Nerschach really sounds like some village in the southern half of germany. We are not used to these names simply because they are fictional. Names like ,Wuppertal'(Wupper Valley), arent creative either. Its hard to come up with original names in OGF due to that we have to come up with ideas behind the name by ourself. Example in RL: ,Bochum' where I'm from got its name from medieval times and meant ,Places where Beech trees are'. Or in OGF I came up with Windigio which has a ,native inhabitants sound' to it. But I also have really boring names like Futuria City, Metroville (can it get any more generic than that?), Seymour.... Its hard... Enjoy your weekend folks

How to space your towns properly 11 months ago

Yeah Wendover is really informative. Although I don't agree with him that Bangladesh is the perfect place for human civilization but his videos are really nice!

Luciano's Mapper's Challenge #10 - January, 2017 - Give and Take 12 months ago

Sure will be an interesting one! A bit messy sometimes but still interesting what it'll bring. I think I said this previously somewhere, not sure though, that I don't mind people editing in Pasalia, aslong as its not one of these strange things (the one that we are trying to get rid of in e.g. Commonia) Happy New Year folks lets make this year great!

2016 Golden Delta Film Festival - WINNERS 12 months ago

Wow, two 1st Places and a 2nd Place. Even though I forgot to complete the wiki articles. Guess we'll throw a surprise party for the movie industry hehe. Was a fun contest, we should keep doing these! You are all so creative!

Thanks! 12 months ago

I just realised... HOLY.... its been over a here since I started here. I must say I'm a bit disappointed of myself due to how little I think I finished. But yes this community really is great, nice refreshing sense of common goals and interests etc.

Good luck in 2017 Guys!

Real World Equivalents? 12 months ago

Some strange mix between late 1950s-1980s Western/ Mid-Western US, with some aspects of other countries and regions. Oh and with a bit of conservative retrofuturism added into there.

Go Broncos and if its a collab country I'll edit wherever I feel like it suits the guidelines and area, understood? Some people...

How are you doing my fellow Mappers 12 months ago

Nothing, I don't actively ,,avoid'' but its more of a ,,Christmas... meh...'' thing, still gotta visit the family tomorrow. Nope I'm not (yet) the grinch ahaha

Ingerish vs Inglish vs Ingerlish 12 months ago

Ingerish is simply normal English. I vary between US and UK english, like saying ,,There are trucks on the Motorway'' instead of trucks on the freeway or lorries on the motorway.

Mapping Agarderia 12 months ago

Well Communist (or those who called them self such) nations were known for example for their huge Apartment Blocks, with Tram Access. Also a focus on large universities, cultural sites etc. instead of sprawling suburbs and malls.
