OpenGeofiction

OpenGeoFiction needs another realm

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

I think there should be another opengeoficiton site (earth.opengeofiction.net?) that is the real planet earth but includes only natural features. That way, we can colonise our actual earth. The borders of countries will be maintained but can be altered by virtual wars. Country names would be the same as their real world equivalent but people are encouraged to change them after getting posession of the territory.

This would be a lot more fun then OpenGeoFiction; more of alternate universe. It would also be interesting to visit your creations in real life.

Erm, I doubt the site owner'd like that. You'd need your own domain if you were to want to do that.

What's up with all the stuff about changing OGF?!?!

All the underlying software is open-source. You go ahead and do that. Have fun.

This idea would need many people on board for it to work well. Frankly don't think we can achieve that amount of commitment.

Some funny ideas in the last time ...

But yes - if anybody will start an "OGF" with the basic of real world continents, he is free to do so. May be there then a playground for little imperialists.

Oh no, i can feel a wave of "change OGF" here.

OGF is can change, but only minimally (updating software, e.g. iD, updating website layout and stuff), but not like a huge load of changes.

You can make your own OSM-based server, it is even documented in the wiki.

Go for it :)

You could play Europa Universalis IV instead and save yourself a lot of trouble.

The only major change that needs to happen on this site is that someone needs to take on the big project of fixing the routing software, and so far, nobody has come forward saying they have the sufficient skills to do so.

@geoboi exactly

I think it's an amazing idea

@MOI N is distracts from general mapping on OGF. Expect OGF to become a less developed place and OGF 2.0 to become a newbie place.

Sorry for my grammar, I write quickly so my fingers don't hurt so much by typing slowly.

I can't understand why this might be "a lot more fun".

OGF is unique only because of it being a different world. I tend to think that is the fun part.
