Hello to the whole community, the truth is that I only come to ask for an opinion about this area of farms that I have been developing today, I don't know much about farms but I would like to know your advice to do better
Somedays ago, i saw the map of languages in the Wiki. Honestly, I didn't like it because it used points and it was very unaccurate. I had the idea of doing the same thing, but with relations.
It has been difficult because I had to see country by country which language people use there, extract the points of the relations and put it into the map.
I hope you like it: https://wiki.opengeofiction.net/wiki/index.php/Map_of_languages
Furthermore, I realized that there is a very common mistake in a lot of countries: mixing languages randomly. In my opinion, it's not realistic at all. For example, I saw countries in which there are arabic, hebrew and chinese script in the same city. I think that we should follow the quote "a nation, a country", or as least, "a country, a language".
This is the reason why I didn't add some countries to the map, cause I couldn't determinate which is the main language of the country.
However, it's a fact that there are countries where people speak several languages. That happens in the real life. So I recommend you to delimitate the border between those languagues.
That's only my advice. You are not forced to follow it, but I ask you guys to think about it.
There are a lot of countries in which I didn't put the language because I didn't have time enough, so I ask you to add them.
In addition, I'm using the same colours that were used before, and I added the colour Black to rare languages that are spoken in very few countries.
I think that most of you have noticed that there are two countries in the world whose names and capitals are "Ascot".
- Ascot in Archanta https://opengeofiction.net/relation/960#map=5/-3.689/128.496
- Ascot in Antarephia + North Ascot https://opengeofiction.net/relation/21649#map=8/-30.907/54.009
Shouldn't it get fixed?
hola, Saludos desde México.
Quisiera saber cuál es la Ciudad más grande de OGF para visitarla y observar como esta construida, tengo un proyecto de Ciudad de Barranquillo en Rhododactilya y quisiera ver más, para ver que debo de construir más.
Hello greetings from Mexico.
I would like to know which is the largest city of OGF to visit and see how it is built, I have a project of Barranquillo City in Rhododactilya and I would like to see more, to see what I should build more.

Hi there guys! Last year I started working in a London-like city by taking advantage of some nice river features I saw around those coordinates, north-west of Gobras City.
I left it abandoned and I've returned for a bit, but I think I am currently overwhelmed and I definitely made many noobie mistakes, such as the ambition of creating a gargantuan urban area, completely not fitting the overall Gobrassanya style, etc.
A bit of backstory: My previous edit -and the first thing I made in Opengeofiction was Minato in Rhododactylia:
(Disregard the weird harbor/pier shapes, it was only an experiment and I don't know how to use JOSM -or even install it, it's like rocket science for me- and this affects a lot the quality of any bigger shape I'd like to create)
After that I requested a territory but again it looks like a lot of work -It is my fault in any case, maybe I don't have enough time or dedication for this task- and they told me I was using real life names, though many people use them and I think most of my names were more or less original by that time (after that I may have used more real life names as I gave up the idea of getting a territory-. So I finally found that location in Gobrassanya.
The good thing is that the region looks super cool and active. The bad thing: me. I am afraid that I am destroying the quality of the Gobras City surrounding with this massive London like city which style doesn't really fit the tropical - hi-tech style of the country.
I absolutely love OGF and its fun but I have a conflict because it is too serious/professional for me at the same time: I don't want to disturb the work of other people (and Gobras City is a very professional collaborative project) but I am also afraid that the criticism (that I want to receive with this post in any way, to be honest) will make me finally leave the site.
I don't know what you think, which changes of general style, scale of the city you'd make, if you'd prefer that I talk with mappers working in Gobras City to create a more cohesive metro area, etc. If you generally find that Fallsington is not that bad or can be rescued/modified/adapted -if you find that it can make sense- could you help me with it?
I even started a CERN-like area inspired by the cool LIGO idea in Gobras City. So I definitely could take care of Fallsington, specially small scale-detail, which I like the most. Roads, railroads, junctions, I am an absolute mess with those and I would like help -also I don't use JOSM as I said before.
Thank you all for your feedback, Manusaurus
To give my country, Liria, more mystery... one of the island will start using its own alphabet (notice that is another alphabet, not another language)
what do you think about it?
Hi all. During these last weeks, I have been working in my city Hendrix; based on the design of London and with buildings from other parts of the world. I want you to give me your opinions and suggestions.
hello I have been developing ammirice in tarephia but I think I have not been doing everything right and in the wrong order, I wanted to know if someone could help clean up my territory (leave it blank) try to start the new one but this time in a good order and with better quality I would accept all the advice that you can give me and if a neighbor reads this, you can contact me
Hi! I just wanted to know if you've done something new or something you're proud about... I mean, I'm a little bit lost, I don't have ideas nor anything like that. I'd like to find inspiration somewhere in this tiny big world
Hello my friends.
I write to you again, first to thank your comments a few days ago that have allowed me to advance in my project. Then again I ask for your support, I have already managed to build a small population, but I have not found a way to put a name to it, I wish you could guide me with instructions, since I would like to see your name.
I appreciate your support, friends.
Greetings from Toluca, Mexico.
Les escribo de nueva cuenta, primeramente para agradecer sus comentarios de hace unos días que me han permitido avanzar en mi proyecto. Seguidamente de nuevo pido su apoyo, ya he logrado construir una pequeña población, pero no he encontrado la forma de colocarle un nombre, ojala pudieran guiarme con instrucciones, ya que me gustaría se visualice su nombre.
Agradezco su apoyo amigos.
Saludos desde Toluca, México.
Hello. I want to reset my country, Ünglend, because I want to start all over and I feel I did it a bit wrong. But how do I reset it?
ok so here i've got a mix of palace-castle (more like a palace than like a castle) and I really like how it looks! but... I made a weird mess by doing it TOO BIG. I'd love that there was a way that it could be copied and pasted but less bigger...
Anyway if there was a method, it'd be impossible for me, as I map on iD and can't get JOSM because I don't have a computer... So if someone knows how to help me, I'd give permission and I'd be so pleased!
Ok so... I'd like to know what do you think about this city. (work in progress, absolutely not finished)
-Yes, i know it is very small for having a metro. -Yes, i know the stations are very near each other -Yes, i know the buildings look weird.
I like constructive criticism as u don't hurt my feelings, duh
and a message for admins: Please, are you going to give me a wiki account? Thanks for reading!
Which one do you think it fits the best?
I started mapping an area in my country (Liria) and I don't know how am I doing it. I like super-detailed things so I use iD. In the island (the link is down) I want to make two little towns + 3 very little ones (50-100 inhabitants) is it too much for such a little island?
A new city. what do you think? I'm new and I don't know how many days passed since I created my account
The subject says everything
The last week I've been seeing the fantastic work that @bhj867 and other users are doing with the citi of Breassau, in Midistland. It would be great to have a planned proyect for the city like in Gobras city. I would like to work in a proyect that sems to be really interesting. So, what do you think?
I think that Breassau it a gerat oportunity for create modern city who isn't like ALL the regular cities with enormous suburbs that we can see in USA...
It would be very interesting to left down your opinions and share with all of us...
Have a nice weekend. Guillermo
Hi everyone and good afternoon!
First of all thanks to Aces California for give me the opportunity of choose the word for these month... And also wish to all luck for the next competition...
So the Weekly Word is inspired in my holidays in Portugal next to Caldas da Rainha, a beautiful countryside area:
Farms, agrarian land use, rural roads, towns, lakes... That's the challenge!
Here is some inspiration from my favorite rural areas in real world:

Deadline is on Sunday 6 of August at 20:00 (UTC+1)!!
Along the last week’s, I saw a lot of crossed accusations between “young” or “inexperienced” users and the consolidated users of our community. (Because althoughit seems like not, I read almost every thing that is wrote, not only in the User Diaries, also in the Blikis). And is because of it, and because I’m a member of these community and I love it, I think we should reflect about what is for us OGF and how we show it to the people. When I arrived here three years ago, I was thirteen, and I saw OGF like a game, a way to get funny and build giant empires like in “Age of Empires”, but today I have a really different vision of that place.
Along these threeyears I have get a notable improvement of my cartography, but also a “mental improvement” Actually for me OGF is an “artistic project” a way to express the things that I like the most (the architecture, the urbanism, the history, the geography…), a way to “disconnect from reality” and get some fun and also a place for see different points of view from great people.
Compared with other usuaries, I’ve got “less time” for develop my mapping, and I wouldlike to can carry out more collaborative projects like the one I’ve got few monthsago whit the Uuser Click, but because my situation in the map,isn’t easy.
Where I want to go is: ¿what is the vision that when show to all of OGF? We need to consider that we are in the XXI century, so there are kids like me that have born in the digital era and therefore, we should be able to deal with the perfil of “kid with 13~16 years old with a lot of time and a lot of arrogance, because with the time,it would be the most common.
BUT, not fit it we should decrease the cuality of the map. ¡No way!, but probably we should change our focus, especially, in the theme of “offer territories”. Maybe, apart of that change in the “User’s territories Policy”, we could offer guides, but focus on constance and improve of the User, probably oriented to something more “audio-visual”, and if we meet with users that don’t want to become better, probably we should left them in “blue territories”. Why not crate different levels or categories only binding on the acquisition of territories, based on experience and not in time? I think that, sincerely, we are afraid of scare new users with these “methods”.
I want yo to now that I getready for help and collaborate with all in the extent that my knowledge and my situation allow me for it. For finishingI would like to thank all the admin team and all the users that help me in my trajectory with OGF with and infinite patience. I wouldlike to thankyou also for your time and reading all, and I request you for left your comment below with RESPECT for all the users and avoid that any debate that could appear be transformed in a child’s war.
Have a beautiful day, Guillermo Cara (my real name,je).
P.D. Sorry for my bad English.
