Paivat lake

Posted by Öllöjoumi on 25 August 2019 in English (English)

I have created a lake in north-western Uletha called "Paivat".

"Paivat" probably means something like "the water of the day" in Läxian language. It may have different names in different languages.

The northern side of the lake is a rocky archipelago (which i am working on right now), streching from east to west. While the southern side is pretty sandy, just like northern Germany and Poland.

Paivat lake is formed by an ancient glacial activity within this area, which created the many lakes, inlets and bogs of Läxland.

Paivat is inspired by the Saimaa lakeland in Finland and the Ladoga lake in Russia. I have always loved the patterns of the nordic lakes and islands, willing to create such natural artwork on OGF.

Location: 63.908, 57.049

Wonderful, realistic details! You have done an amazing work.

I hope the international parts of the lake are completed with the same passion, in cooperation with the neighbors. Combining Paivat with Korkeajärvi would be something to consider. In my opinion, the isthmus in between the lakes is not very realistic as it stands now. In any case, Korkeajärvi need more detailing, and you could help by providing a master plan, before the city conglomerate planned in the west starts arising. More careful work and collaboration between neighbors and this area will be even more amazing!

I would propose to extend the lake further northeast into the Medwedian Democratic Federation.
