Blue Country Editors, and anyone interested in helping.
In a recent Diary Entry post, I mentioned the over-the-top project that I have given myself (as a bit of a test) and I am nothing short of an amateur at this site. I am proud to admit that I am an amateur mapper, but I have one request rather. If anyone has experience in creating realistic zones and would like to help me finish out my current project (Munsterhann, Northside, Lviv, Louletta, and McKenner) before I move on to my next project (Populating Gilagonas Region, Mecyna via 88 and T-2) It would be greatly appreciated
Basically what I am in need of is:
I. Residential Zones in neighborhoods that I have already planned out
II. Commercial and Industrial Zones along numbered routes
III. City Services and Public Transport (Sidenote: I don’t understand OGF Bus Routes)
IV. Additional Links to other areas to work with (Bellafountaine and surrounding areas)
V. Help with Lake layers… (I did read the tutorial on the wiki and tried copying other’s lakes per what they were and still had trouble)
VI. Additional help with Airport Zone
I do understand that my sizing is not entirely realistic, but I am trying my best to base building sizes off of what they seem in real life without using any additional softwares. I am not the most tech savy person in the world so OSM and other softwares just confuse me.
If you happen to be interested in helping, Private Messaging me is encouraged, or if you have any tips: Please leave them in the comments. Thank You in Advance, and Happy Mapping.

recommendation: use JOSM.
i’m a ex-iD mapper wich supported it for many time, but once i tried JOSM it made everything easier(TM)
i’d recommend you take a look at the FAQ, it has a tutorial on how to do JOSM
also fastdraw and continous downloader plugins will be of much help, specially because it’s near natural features, wich normally are wiggled

Be sure to review the guidelines: “Be original … avoid using well-known place names”
