A checklist for new mappers starting a country (Inspiration and making the country)

Posted by plainoldbread on 28 November 2017 in English (English)

For real, this is some tips I do have for new mappers out there, unsure of what to build, i'd like to simplify the process for you, starting with the easy part INSPIRATION. What is your country based on? If the united states pops into your head you would go and place highways, but actually America was just forests and strange coastlines, the only reason the highways are all scattered is because of America's urbanization on the land. So what should I do? One thing is to look around at roads in america, one place you'd never look is kentucky or west virginia, in those states there are a lot of hills, and highways have to follow the hill in order to go a specific way, so be bob ross and set your imagination wild. We are at the next step, unleashing your inner bob ross, now add realistic forests and mountains to your map, remember, don't make it too filled with nature, because you need your towns and cities later, after you're done, try mapping out a few towns and cities, but put it on rivers. America does this a lot, same with other countries with many rivers.

Here we are, the last part, designing your amazing flag, it might take some time to perfect but trust me, no flag is perfect.

(I might be untrustworthy but given me reading more ogf wiki articles i correct my past mistakes by filling up parts i left blank with amazing stuff, and in the end it looks, well okay.)

I'd like to ask; what kind of traffic lights are in your country?

Posted by plainoldbread on 7 November 2017 in English (English)

So you can show an image or just describe them.

If you have a specific list of different kinds varying by state, you can.

When I have enough detail on my first country to try mapping a new one what should it be?

Posted by plainoldbread on 6 November 2017 in English (English)

I'm thinking something european style, but with an entirely made up language that I created specifically for the country. I might go on both sides with this, should it have 2 languages or 1

I feel as if I improved somehow.

Posted by plainoldbread on 9 September 2017 in English (English)

I am really unsure if my work is still unrealistic, but I never really mapped some kind of hotel as detailed as this, so I ask if you think it is nice?

The entire area has an edited coastline which is kind of more realistic, than my other builds. (The entire area is based off of Grand Bahia Principe in Punta Cana, and Sunscape in Montego Bay Jamaica)

I mapped some islands as a future area where the hotel would have scuba diving and a bar nearby just in case the guests would like a drink after they scuba dive.

Other work I have made is a small little trailer park for a friend here.

My friend mapped a park nearby and I added some scenic trails.

I have done some other stuff on Planoria, first off I remade the lake to be realistic.

How is it?

Apology for all the short text posts i've been making.

Posted by plainoldbread on 12 July 2017 in English (English)

Hi All I am truly sorry for distrupting the user diaries with short posts every now and then. I have brought it down to this: Either have a seperate website to post my updates to or you'd just view my profile for it, I am not sure about how I can cut down on the posts, maybe you can tell me what I should do. Should I put my progress on a site or in a video, or just make my profile a place to see what i've done.

Planorian Enclave Citiy

Posted by plainoldbread on 10 July 2017 in English (English)

I've decided to use up the empty space and make towns, I have created Windham in one of the enclaves. I'm thinking it would have about 100,000 people living there, some old history of Planoria owning some of the land surrounding the enclaves, and some kind of city square to remember who protected Windham and Alligator Pond from enemy forces. http://opengeofiction.net/#map=18/-47.00169/65.51532 Second one in location
