Recent diary entries
I've recently been re-doing some mapping I did in the Southern Islands (90% of it near the AN Base) well over a year ago. To be honest, I find the name "Assembly of Nations" quite dull for what is supposed to be an interesting place. For example, in real life, you have not-so-dull base names like McMurdo, Esperanza, Vostok, etc....So why not come up with a name for the base we have in OGF? It could be named after a pioneering explorer, an important figure in the history of the world and that kind of stuff! So what ideas do YOU have for a base name? I already have some in my mind, how about you?
Constructive replies/comments welcome!
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.
Many people would be pleased if the number of former ingerish colonies and ingerish influenced coutries were not so important. But what else ?
In my particular case, my country (see "Sudharka" in the wiki) wasn't properly colonized by Ingerland. I decided to explain its technological and political modernity by a "european" adviser who helped the local prince in modernizing the country. But, of course, this man was ingerish, and I think I would change this.
So, my question is : where else could he have been from ? (Whether is was ingerish-speaker or not, because I could also speak French, a bit of Spanish, and maybe try to learn a bit of something else for OGF.) What are the other early-develloped, (colonist) countries that could sometimes replace Ingerland in explaing the cultural uniformity ?
I hope you have interesting ideas for answering this question.
I map the Free Principality of Sudharka (TA097b) and, since I am a rather recent user of OGF, I wonder about the history of this territory before I took possession of it. Just for the sake of curiosity.
Could any experienced user tell me what were there before ?
And, oh, by the way, what do you think about my country ?
Hello, there, I map the Free Kingdom of Sudharka (TA097b, in northern Tarephia). Because I took my inspiration mostly from the kingdom of Sarawak, in Borneo, I decided to make it an asian-like country, using what I think to be asian-like names. But I consider changing this location, and turn it either to a northern-Africa-like country, or to a south-american-like one. I would nonetheless ask there if anybody could tell me what this part of the continent is really supposed to look like. I didn't find a lot of geographical information on the wiki, and, tough the latitude and longitude corresponds, if I remember well, to somewhere in southern Asia, OGF geography may differ from Earth's.
I hope someone have information on this subject.
I just wanted to make stuff clear with you all.
I am at ONE HAIR from having JOSM. I just can't find the right browser to execute Java on. The people over at Java recommend IE, but seriously, IE? That's outdated! So i'm asking any of YOU, JOSM users....
What kind of browser do you use for running Java, then JOSM?
See you later!
I am planning on making a mountain range with rivers, peaks and forest. It's some stuff at a very professional stage (high-end JOSM). Since I do not have JOSM nor do I have access to it, I ask help today from you, my OGF people, to pleasw help me.
P.S. I see that my diary entry response rate (D.E.R.R.) is pretty low (about 2-5 replies), but I am serious. I do need help.
Yours, TheMapper27 (btw this name is cringe)
I am looking for truck depot examples because I would like to build one just south of the A 5 near Willow Station. I am looking for Willow Station to have a balance between residential and industrial. It will be an important pit stop for cars and trucks going on the A 5. I already have a pit-stop mega complex north of the roundabout interchange. The explanation for the roundabout is to give time for the 53' semis to slow down and enter the interchange proper.
I've been thinking today about music in OGF. For example, if I would like to create a 1-hour long playlist for Lakeshore 103.9 FM (Lumina and environs), would I have to use OGF music (if any) or if there really isn't any music, just real life songs?
I would talk about this in the talk page, but I do not have a wiki account and most of those talk pages have not been active for about 1 month.
So Skalenia has been negociating recently if it should join organizations.
October 2, they voted on joining 3 East Ulethan organizations, including EUOIA.
The results? A whopping 83% of the assembly said yes.
I'd like to say that i'm ready to join tose organizations, but i cant because of the 2 reasons above.
My first successful attempt at creating an island. Rate it out of 10 in the comments/replies below.
P.S. As of writing this, the island is only visible in TopoMap and Histor.
Thank you for the advice you gave me on my last entry, but I need to solve one last thing....
Can someone detail my coastline? User Paxtar added 900 nodes to my coastline a few months ago, but I am 100% unable to move them.
Here is the list of town names for Skalenia 3.0 Those names don't have a 100% guarantee of being used, but town names will be chosen from this list.
Here are the names:
- Cachomingue (will replace Cackling Hill)
- Coyboux (will replace Aubergine)
- Fort Boudreau
- Fort Lapierre
- Nouveau-Maybury (has replaced Nouvelle-Mélandres)
- Port-Rioux (has replaced Baie-Ouest. No longer capital, but still a major city)
- Saint-Jean (new capital city!)
Let me know if you like this list!
Ready for Skalenia 3.0? Here we go.
helps my mapping, typing and text-structuring skills heheheh
As of writing this, I have not started ANYTHING written on this entry yet. Yes, I want to re-rebuild. And here's what I'll do:
I will need the help of an experienced mapper because I do not have access to Potlatch, let alone JOSM. I would like the following:
Detailed coastline and island coastlines (not to the max, but enough to be considered "good")
A medium-height mountain range running right through the inland areas of the country (peaks maybe 500-1250 m, tallest peaks no more than 1800 m)
10-15 streams or rivers that I will name (please keep Evangeline and Voutre, map a river dividing Saint-Jean coming down from some of the highest springs)
Cities and Towns
After the natural features are done, I will put the town names. I can do the town names and streets by myself.
Since Skalenia is so small and I want to preserve it's natural beauty, I will only have two twinned trunk roads in the entire country; one going from Nouveau-Maybury, going around Baie-Ouest (will likely rename) and going all the way to the roundabout with 175 north of the soon-to-be former airport. The second one will branch off of the first one in the Baie-Ouest area, go in the mountains, follow the river all the way to Saint-Jean. I can't do twin roads properly with iD, so I will need help there also.
I will do them myself, but if you guys scold me for not having parallel streets and buildings, then send someone to help me.
See you later!
I am a beginner on Opengeofiction, I am for a few days working on my own country (Free Republic of Limensophia, on the Uthyran coast, in the north of Tarephia), and I don't know how to do harbours (I have tried to drive a line and tag it "harbour" but nothing appears on the map.) It is of course an obvious thing for many people here, and it is maybe not the good place for this kind of question, but if someone could answer, ...
Hello. I would like to build a regional/national airport near Konalmi, in the gap between Conosa and Lumsoll. I can't find any example of that certain type of airport, so do you guys know where I can find one?
Do hurricanes exist in OGF? if so, in what oceans?
Is there any way to measure distance in iD?
Thank you for your answers!
Konlami is a picturesque town nested at the edge of the Tasmal Mountains. It has 3 major highways: YA 61, National 17 and exits 24 and 24B towards A 2. It is also about 20-30 minutes south of Margenson. Milaukáshka and Ominoso are also within 90 minutes of Konlami. I believe it is by far the biggest and most successful project I have ever made. I can also declare that Renpuma is a failed project compared to this. I plan to have about five neighbourhoods of similar size. Neighborhoods 1 and 2 are complete and Neighborhood 3 is currently a work-in-progress. Neighborhoods 4 and 5 are coming soon. Upon completion, it is expected to have a population of about 10K. What I need from you is your opinions on Konlami.
Is there an "origin" country, i.e. Ingerland for Ingerish, but for Franquese?
