Returning to OGF

Posted by Brunanter on 21 April 2019 in English (English)

I'm returning to the OGF community. I'm hoping to get back by former country of Mariana (UL212). I do have some new ideas for the country, and want to have diplomatic times with other countries/more activity.

Migration of Early Humans in OGF

Posted by James69UK on 21 April 2019 in English (English)

What does the peopling of the OGF World look like? where were the earliest Human settlements? When was Uletha populated with Humans? Archanta? e.c.t

For those Interested or seeking further information

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Early_human_migrations

edit. I presume that Archanta is similar to the Americas and was settled much later, it was just an example, i was wanting background of all the continents to figure out the broader picture of how the ogf world was settled.

Histor-style render issue

Posted by Texanmapper on 20 April 2019 in English (English)

So, the track in Tchullathinak is not showing up.

Or at least, the actual highway=raceway name=Teenesccan Motorspeedway tagged ways aren't.

Context:will not show up with either oneway=yes, oneway=unset, or oneway=no. Mapped about a week ago.

OGF Border Tripoints

Posted by MisterBean on 20 April 2019 in English (English)

What are your country's most famous border tripoints, on national and provincial level? How did they come to be? Are there any weird quirks or anomalies concerning the border?

In the area linked below, four provinces (Governorates) of my country meet at two tripoints just one and a half kilometers away from eachother. Note the changing numbering of the north-south road - G roads are Governorate-level roads.

FSA Blue Nation.

Posted by plainoldbread on 19 April 2019 in English (English)

A blue nation in the FSA would be great for new mappers who come from the United States to map out their cities before they get a nation. It would make the cancerous mapping go to someplace more suitable for it. It is a great place to start mapping if someone loves to place highways everywhere. Plus it would be more realistic considering the FSA is the OGF equivalent of the United States.

Bienvenidos a Nacuitlán (y aclaración del tamaño de la capital)

Posted by Rorro on 18 April 2019 in Spanish (Español)

He realizado un cambio de nombre con un generador de nombres azteca, así que he decidido renombrar mi país como Nacuitlán (Nakwitlan in English), y la capital renombrada Nueva Tenochte (New Tenuchte in English), pero las formas de gobierno e ideología y demás seguirán igual...

With an Aztec name generator, i did an contry name change, so i decided to rename my country as Nakwitlan, my capital is the same but renamed to New Tenuchte, but the government forms and the ideology and etc... will be the same...

Sobre mi ciudad capital, conozco su exagerado tamaño, pero esto pasa porque lo que deseo es crear una gran área metropolitana conjunta con varias ciudades del norte de mi país, el cual pienso nombrarla Gran Nacuitlán, y estoy editando cada detalle todavía, la ciudad no está completa, aparentemente sí, pero en realidad llevo en un 50%

About my capital city, i know about its "giant" scale, but it happens because i wish to create an metropolitan area with some cities of North Nakwitlan, it will be named Great Nakwitlan, and im still editing every detail, the city isn't completed yet, technically yes, but really no, it is on 50% of its real progress

Progresando con Aztequistán

Posted by Rorro on 17 April 2019 in Spanish (Español)

Nueva Castellán es la nueva ciudad de la República Democrática Popular de Aztequistán, también hice los límites de la Ciudad de Nueva Tenochtitlán y el Estado de Nueva Castellán, también elevé a ciudad a Cuitlavok y declaré a Nueva Tenochtitlán oficialmente como la capital del país, aunque irónicamente sea la ciudad con menor progreso que llevo, pero será una gigante ciudad (en comparación de las demás de mi país), tambien instalé nuevas carreteras, red eléctrica entre Nueva Tenochtitlán, Nueva Castellán y Cuitlavok, y 3 aeropuertos en las ya mencionadas ciudades, seguiré editando esta zona, es un logro para mi como novato

Los nombres son de origen azteca, Cuitlavok proviene de Cuitláhuac, héroe azteca

Thoughts on my semi-complex motorway intersection?

Posted by MisterBean on 16 April 2019 in English (English)

I have created a motorway junction that reflects a "failed motorway" which fell victim to alterations in road planning. Originally, the M172 was planned to connect the city of Stornæs to a motorway that would go west, into the mountains, from Herbertskirken. However, the plan was scrapped due to lack of money (the President needed a new mansion). At that point, the junction between the M17 and the M172 was already finished. As such, the M172 was made to terminate into the federal-level highway T10 on the south side and serve as an extension of the M17 on the north side, where it will connect to a expressway and an older motorway I have not added to the map yet.

One alteration however was made to the design of the T junction: in order to prevent the congestion of the exit "1b" that was due to be constructed, it was made to double as the exit for those coming from the southeast. An exit ramp leads from the M17 to the T29. The exit further north therefore was left incomplete. An inconvenience arises from this: traffic coming from the direction of St. Martin and wishing to enter the motorway can not enter it here.

Another sign of the alteration of the plan is the sharp curve of the M17 further south, just north of Herbertskirken: originally, a TATSO cloverleaf intersection with the motorway going west (that was never constructed) was planned there. I think that I will add an odd-looking exit there.

What do you think at my attempt at "versimilitude" when it comes to road planning, at creating a truly imperfect transport network?

Thoughts on my mapping

Posted by nehalem501 on 15 April 2019 in English (English)

Hello everyone,

I’ve been mapping my territory for around a year now and I’ve been mainly focusing on my capital (which still has no name at the moment) and a small region bordering a neighbour and the ocean. I’d like to know your thoughts about my mapping.

For the moment I haven’t finished outlining all the main ideas I have for my capital city so I’m mainly asking about the small region I was talking about. I’ve outlined more or less how the things should be in this region and now the next step would be adding more and more details. I’d like to know everyone’s thoughts and ideas about it. (You can still tell me stuff about my capital city, but as I’m making major changes every 2 months or so because of a changing vision, it’s not the main topic here)

Thanks.

I'm back

Posted by CaboAzul on 14 April 2019 in English (English)

After a year-long hiatus, I have finally come back to OGF.

Things I plan to do in the near future:

  1. Keep working on Vertbourne (In baby steps)
  2. Keep attempting to get a territory, preferably very small and isolated.

Establishing a military alliance like NATO

Posted by theruler on 14 April 2019 in English (English)

Hey,

Right now, there is a lot of turmoil between countries (not in the community in general), and there is a need for an alliance, like IRL Nato, or Warsaw Pact (pre-1991). This can create more stability and protect smaller countries with smaller economies (My landmass is small, but i have a large and stable economy - so i am not a "small country with a small economy")

If this is a good idea, then we could create an alliance!

Ulethan Military Pact, Ulethan Pact, Ulethan Pact for Democracy, Ulethan Imper- ahem, Worldwide Peace Union, Assembly of Nations Peacekeeping Alliance etc. These names can probably suit the purpose of the pact.

Communism? Theocracy (yum)? Democracy? Anarchy? Monarchy? You name it, an alliance also needs an ideology, a way of thought.

Foreign investment #2

Posted by JoJoBa on 9 April 2019 in English (English)

Hello, I would like to "re-post" my user diary from before. Basically, in my capital, there are a few empty spots in the business district. I lack the inspiration of any specific shape and style of a building, to mske myself fill in the gap. That's where I call YOU! You can contact me on OGF right now, and ask for a block (you can request up to two, and/or can request to divide a block).

Currently, only block 1 is occupied.

Happy mapping!

The first city in my new country!

Posted by JuLn on 9 April 2019 in English (English)

Hey guys! I've recently gained ownership of a territory, that I called Oxhano, and I've just finished the first city/village of the country! Here it is, it's called Techami City

What do you think of it?

Thanks

Concerning Highway 11, Commonia.

Posted by jbobinman on 8 April 2019 in English (English)

Hello, I'd like to ask the OGF community a large favour. If you could expand Highway 11 To at least Auflington, I'd appreciate that. If you are good at building highways, then Please feel free to expand 11. My original plan was to have it run all the way to Altaville. The current usage for 11 is, Motorway in Urban Areas / Suburban city outskirts, Trunk (single) in Rural Areas, or through small towns. I'd love to see 11 become a reality. I just haven't had the time nor patience to finish it. Thank you. Sincerely, jbobinman

International highway (Archanta)

Posted by AustinofOketia on 7 April 2019 in English (English)

Do you think it is a good idea to make a north-south international highway? We will of course need the permission from other countries to build a highway through their country, and it will be their choice where to make it go. We need to make this motorway have a realistic path (Obviously to save money). This has been done in real life before, like the pan-American highway. I feel like we should stretch North first, with Marvin, Oketia being the hub for the highway, seperating the south and north highway.

I will not do this unless it is supported. I know this is a huge project in terms of roads. I don't want to destroy the realism of countries, so it is crucial we give it the correct path and it goes through the best cities. What are your thoughts?

New Area!

Posted by The Mapper on 7 April 2019 in English (English)

I have expanded the IS-1 interstate all the way to AR050-05 (not yet owned). Be prepared for more town and cities along there!

Sorry for the hiatus

Posted by Ernestpcosby on 6 April 2019 in English (English)

My quick apologies to people I haven't responded to and the relative lack of mapping in the last month or so. It's been a rough semester and I've had less time and energy to devote to OGF than I personally would like. I'll try to get back to people soon.

Best, Ernestpcosby

Tarephia Cooperation Council

Posted by Portier on 6 April 2019 in French (Français)

The government of the Free Principality of Sudharka (on the Uthyran coast, in eastern Tarephia), is willing to join the Tarephian Cooperation Council. The problem is that the ministry of Foreign Affairs isn't able to tell what should be done to become a member, who should be asked and what the exact conditions are. This is why this government is now asking this question to you (and also considering to fire the minister of the F.O., visibly unable to do his job).

Thanks in advance.
