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.
A raíz del reto de Luciano he decidido hacer algo de una vez con Puerto Elisabeth, pero tengo ciertas dudas acerca del futuro espacio geográfico de la ciudad (y la propia ciudad en si misma) así que he decidido escribir este diario para ver su algún usuario me da algo de inspiración/opinión/sugerencias acerca de cómo debería ser y dónde (o en qué forma) debería estar situada la nueva ciudad.
La ciudad ha sufrido innumerables cambios de lugar, nombre y estructura, ya que nunca me ha llegado a convencer.
Los última versión de Puerto Elisabeth esta basada en tres mapas a papel hechos por mi, todos diferentes, que no concuerdan desde mi punto de vista entre si, por eso he decidido eliminar el 90% de la ciudad (excluyendo edificios más detallados y el área del Palatinado para proceder a su remodelación...
Mis "dilemas" para llevar a cabo el proyecto don los siguientes
¿Que hago con la bahía/ría/hidrografía? Mi plan es eliminar los ríos que se encuentran actualmente en la ciudad, que me parecen poco verosímiles y seguramente las marismas, pero para la bahía no se bien que hacer... Creo que una buena opción sería crear la ciudad en la desembocadura de un río parecido al Nervión (España), colocando la ciudad en una localización similar a la de Bilbao, pero con un diseño inspirado en el de Lisboa (tengo algunos diseños en mente que quiero pasar a papel).
¿Que hago con las montañas que rodean la ciudad? Iba a optar por dejarlas, pero creo que debería quitarlas, para que el futuro río naciese más lejos...
Dicho todo esto, ¿qué creéis que podría hacer?
Weeks ago I launched the Kirchenburg Summer Geolympiad 1992 bid. Balonis city one was quite poor, and Kirchenburg is growing step by step so i thought a geolympiad could be a nice part of the city history. What u think about the bid?
Im working in a Geolympiad city map... http://wiki.opengeofiction.net/wiki/index.php/File:Kirchenburggeolympiccityinprocess.jpg
Hola a todos. En los próximos días solicitaré un territorio para desarrollar. Por favor, ¿cómo puedo saber todos los territorios en los cuales el castellanés es el idioma principal? Mi objetivo es la creación de un territorio basado en una monarquía parlamentaria, cuyos orígenes se remonten a la colonización por parte de Castellán. Se trataría de un territorio en el cual una rama de la monarquía originaria permaneció aislada por los conflictos circundantes y mantuvo su poder. Tras un período dictatorial dicha familia realizó una transición de la dictadura a una monarquía parlamentaria, que es la que actualmente persiste. He localizado un territorio idóneo para ello cerca de Balonis y Renkistán. Un saludo a todos, en especial a los castellaneses.
During this week I had a little problem with my islands, and while it solved @Ūdilugbulgidħū (since I had no idea) I have dedicated to the design of a small town in central Bizaradia.
For the design of the city I have tried to keep as much detail as possible (although I still have to allocate shops ...) and a good scale.
The city lies in a wide and fertile plain in central Bizaradia, the left bank of a river (located east of the city) as its main industry is agriculture.
The city began to build in the late sixteenth century and therefore does not present a too important historical center: it is to create, and will be located above the cathedral and the right side of Independence Avenue.
For now, round by now 20,000 inhabitants, but it should be twice as big and reach 40,000 City lhes
The city has two tram lines that link with the nearby towns and villages, connection motorway, country road and train.
It has a hospital that caters to the entire region
For now this is all in the city, but still has more development.
¿Some constructive criticism / review about the city?
I guess that's the message subject will have an idea of the problem ... This morning I made some changes in Port Elizabeth this. Everything seemed right, but I reentered this afternoon to do other editions and have found that my island was being flooded. I tried to find out what happened, but what little they do find the node that I think causes the problem: http://opengeofiction.net/node/37362329 part of the route http://opengeofiction.net/way/4608024 and http://opengeofiction.net/way/3964312
