Themes of Central American mapping

Posted by AustinofOketia on 31 January 2020 in English (English)

I have decided that that will be my theme for my nation. What are the physical themes for this area, like roads, building size, etc. and what features are most common in these areas? What are some of your observations.

No motorways. Even things tagged as motorways on OSM for CentroAmerica are rarely anything at the level of true "limited access" in the North American or European sense. All roads have buildings and driveways directly onto them. Traffic laws are entirely optional. I rode on public transportation (buses) that would proceed against traffic on supposedly divided highway. It's a fun place to travel.

Try to create a rainforest or temperate climate.

Use little to no English, or some fun of the Central American 'theme' goes away.

Also, try to have mountains somewhere; this is the most recommended choice from me. I recommend it because the area is a source of many rivers, and you get to collaborate with your neighbours. Also, the Mecyna area which you border is sort of wonky, so...

Also, please don't 'steal' names. Like this.

Thanks!

Welcome first. I like that you are inspired by Central America for your map, my country, BalamUtz is inspired by the Mexican southeast and Central America. You can visit it and see what there is to drink. https://opengeofiction.net/#map=8/12.555/61.150

Now, there are also some points that are characterized: -Grid historical center, without financial zone. https://opengeofiction.net/#map=17/13.19691/60.91258 -Central squares -They follow a river or a valley shape, although they usually avoid it. https://opengeofiction.net/#map=15/12.9040/60.0316 -Highways are few, it only connects ports or cities. -Two-way avenues such as French boulevard are typical of commercial areas. -Many streets are dirt roads in the peripheries, more in small cities and towns. -They are in warm, tropical places, so your country must be between 15N or 15S and the equator
