Planorian Travel Tips

Posted by plainoldbread on 24 December 2016 in English (English)

1 Don't go speaking English to a regional eatery in the city of Maisoneuve. They will roll their eyes at you. 2. USD, CDN, all the money from the real life and OGF world are legal to be traded, but if you bring a rock on tuesday you get $50 Planorian 3. Please don't do the popular trend called dabbing, the residents dislike it. 4. Do not vandalize the posters (You will be charged $25,000 Planorian) 5. Bring bug spray during the summer, by that time a group of mosquitoes would be hungry for a meal 6. Please do not blast music, it annoys people. 7. Once you arrive at the airport, don't run, unless you have to rush or you need to use the restroom 8. The Galacticburger Fast food eatery has tons of good food to fill you up when your hungry, but you need to drive 45 minutes from Arlington to get to the only one with a virtual cart you have on your phone. 9. don't blast country music, or just not any music. if you wanna blast it, make sure it's not on ear exploder mode.

Thats the travel tips

Location: Montgomery Street, Arlington, Fyndarie, Planoria

Dabbing is definitely welcome (and encouraged) in Myrcia.

Come and dab on our beautiful shores!

Dabbing is legal in The Free Republic of Jefferson. You can buy dabbing equipment in stores all across the country. Come fly in, get a hotel room not far from a Buck's BBQ Buffet, and have a good time :)

@_zM: No, they don't. But I think there is a universal standard currency in OGF equivalent to what USD is worth in the real world.

@Thunderbird USD in the OGF world stands for unified standard dollar. It exists. Search in the list of currencies.

USD (unified standard dollar) is a kind of "creation of convenience" that allows us to think in terms of a familiar, real-world currency (and associated valuation) as we work out the values of other currencies and other products in our fictional world. It's a little bit of a kludge, but I think it's useful. Other references to "real world" (e.g. English, CDN) probably should be avoided, however. This is sometimes annoying - when I first arrived at OGF I was happy to use "real world" terms, names, and references in my map and wiki work. However, I was quickly set straight as to the community standard, and I've been willing to compromise and follow along, as I understand the need for community standards.

Going along with what Luciano said, I think that's one of the nice things about having the couple convenient almost real world terms that we can relate to (Unified Standard Dollar instead of United States Dollar, Ingerish instead of English, etc). I do a little of the same thing with some of my companies as placeholders until I create better more original equivalents (ChickFilet, Carol's Old Fashioned Cheeseburgers, etc) It's really not that hard and in most cases other than the complicated ones that just can't exist in OGF it's usually pretty easy (and sometimes fun) to just tweak something slightly to make it recognizable but not "real-world". For things like languages and such though in my opinion it's best to stick with the overall OGF consensus, sort of like the debate recently between Ingerish, Inglish, etc.

I suppose as long as we're discussing community standards, is there an official OGF substitute for Spanish? Freedemia being in Tarephia I've been using Latinian (since Latina seems to be the closest country that speaks a "latin language") but I'm not sure if there's a more community accepted name.

(I apologize if this comment got off topic XD)
