What to do with Sky Point?

Posted by Volcanizion on 1 November 2019 in English (English)

Right now, the "theme park" Sky Point is just a huge oversized chunk of park with one or two rides in Southeast Gobras City. Is it a good idea to rebuild and resize the entire park? The hotel area seems to be fine though.

Proposal: Mississauga-Bayview Bridge

Posted by Volcanizion on 30 October 2019 in English (English)

Looking at Gobras City, it sort of resembles Tokyo with how it shadows over cities like Ominoso and Margenson. And in Tokyo, there's a highway way out in Tokyo Bay called the Aqua Line connecting the two sides of the Bay.

So I'm planning to construct a sort-of highway connecting the bay together. Realistically, it would cutdown on travel time between Havreg and Eastern Gobrassanya as it would have to pass through Gobras City (which I would assume has crazy traffic).

This can consist of two bridges with a tunnel in between.


About Ormeo

Posted by Zhangxi20 on 29 October 2019 in English (English)

So the main island of Ormeo seems to be a mix of Xiamen Island and Manhattan. I think having different areas with diaspora from other Ulethan nations would be nice. Maybe even a hotel district.

I don't know what do with Hisbiscus especially since Ormeo will be my base for editing for a while. Any tips? I don't want to delete it either as I think the creator of the island spent a while making it.

Feedback on the Marvin CBD makeover.

Posted by AustinofOketia on 28 October 2019 in English (English)

I have redeveloped Marvin's main area with the towers and I want to know your feedback! This is but the first step in developing the nation of Oketia. I want to make it simple and easy to navigate but with a complex history. Any Feedback? I would love to hear from both new and experienced members to see what your opinion is!

Northern Borders of Commonia/User Diary searching

Posted by coshatiuav on 24 October 2019 in English (English)

Excuse me if this has been asked already - but the current northern border of Commonia and all countries above it are not shown at zoom level<4 - is it possible to fix this?

Also, will it be possible to implement (or show me if this is already a thing) a way to search for user diary entries?

Roll back certain things

My coastline was deleted, I don't want to construct it again node by node. How do I revert it back?

Flights in the FSA/OGF World

Posted by oof boi on 24 October 2019 in English (English)

Hi everyone,

I was looking at the wiki currently and I saw that most of the planes that are out there are bigger airplanes, with not many planes that have less than 150 seats.

In the real world, there are 2-3 companies that take advantage of this by manufacturing small aircraft. (Bombardier, Embraer, McDonald Douglass(I think they merged with Boeing??))

In the FSA/OGF world there are none yet.

Maybe there are some that I missed??

Another thing is that the routes that are used with these aircraft are short-haul routes, used to connect a passenger from their home airport to the closest hub the airline has to that airport. Then these passengers get on medium-haul flights or long-haul flights to their final destination.

Overall, what I am trying to say is that the OGF world needs more short-haul routes and medium-haul routes than long-haul routes. We also need new aircraft to service these routes.

If there is something that I missed or anything you want to tell me, feel free to comment on this post.

Waterfront City

Posted by SwiftHyena2593 on 21 October 2019 in English (English)

I've been working on a medium sized coastal city in Lonowai for about a month now. It contains 2 shopping malls, multiple hotels, a convention center, expressway, project buildings, a hospital, multiple strip malls and smaller stores, and a lot more to come.

City display problem

Posted by niski on 21 October 2019 in Polish (Polski)

Hello, i am posting here because i have strange problems with my city name displaying after 30km away (when the cities become points).

To be exact, i put a city mark properly, but it won't show up past the 30km range. I did it 3 weeks ago and rest of the map on the current zoom updated so it's not zoom updates. I tried many things, such as adding capital=4 tag (because this'd be the "capital/largest city" of my state i'm mapping in), making a new city tag, W A I T I N G, removing/adding population mark in my city name, and nothing. Later, i added some planned cities that are 0% complete and are just placeholders, when i suddenly see one of them is displaying from even 100km away! What is this problem caused by, and how to fix it, if i can ask? Also, i recently noticed the city stopped appearing from 30km and only appears to 20km zooms.

If anyone needs the location, it's here: (don't mind my poor mapping or the fact that the city is like 1% done, i just recently got this territory).

Firth of Hetzer

Posted by ADB52 on 19 October 2019 in English (English)

I'm proposing to change the southern end of the Firth of Hetzer, in that it will end on a line between Middel Hetzer (west) and Meldich (east). Although fully within the territory of Utterland, it is quite a change in coastline. Anybody got any objections? Have written to the owner of Shlonsk, which is only a few km north of this proposed line.

Realistic node density per kilometer

Posted by EMKLI on 18 October 2019 in English (English)

Working on the skerry coast around Frjalshöfn, it just happened that I imported 680.000 nodes into JOSM, spreading on a total edge length of about 4.500 km. This results in 150 nodes per kilometer, which means, one edge is 6 metres long on average. Don't worry, I deleted everything. ;-) (Just for explanation: of course, I didn't draw this by hand. I used the "how to create realistic forsest coverage" method from the wiki and then fractalized the shapes).

For an edgy coast line like a skerry coast, what node distance would be adequate? 20 metres? 50 metres?

Export OGF data to svg

Posted by EMKLI on 18 October 2019 in English (English)

Just a small question. Can I, either out of JOSM or out of OGF directly (or any other way), export map data as svg file? So far, I didn't find a solution.

Mountainous Crops and Paddy Rice Fields

Posted by iiEarth on 18 October 2019 in English (English)

Hello everyone!

I am mapping in Indahtanah, a state in Lorotoban. It is a Timor-based island nation. You can read more about it here.

With that out of the way, I was mapping rural 'stuff' (farmland, crops, orchards, et cetera). But, I came to a part where the farmland meets with the forest (in this case, rather hilly). I can't find any good examples of rice paddies or any mountainous farmland in Openstreetmap. If anyone has an example, can you please comment it down? I would like some inspiration mostly in an Asian place (rice is mostly grown in Asia anyway).

What should I use for making racetracks?

Posted by Pancake Killer on 14 October 2019 in English (English)

I noticed how there's a line for a racetrack, but only non-motorsports. What should I use to make a motorsports track?


Posted by MOI N on 13 October 2019 in English (English)

Cycleways are small infrastructure projects which makes cycling easier , for the experienced and inexperienced.I'm suprised with all the detail in some places that these have been left out. I have made a small section in Burnieside-Devonport which runs along Thnn xe s phers so.

Oketia is getting a makeover!

Posted by AustinofOketia on 13 October 2019 in English (English)

I have realised that 1. My capital city has an unnatural shape 2. I have a bad rural-urban transition 3. My nation looks 3rd world. I put my country at 0.8 on the Global development index, but my maps don't reflect that 4. I don't have much land detail

So, with that said, most of my capital city will be getting deleted. However, some of the more dense shopping districts will not. Here is the plan: * Remove my Main Motorway. * Place trunk roads at intervals, in a gridlike style. * Have 1 or 2 motorways, depending on the development of other things. * Place small towns where trunk roads intersect, as well as a few other small towns scattered around. * Not every intersection will have a town, some will be larger towns or gas stations, others will be parks & tourism. * Detail the rural areas to have more areas like farmland. * Add more mountains and peaks.
