Hey everybody. I am new here and it´s great. So, unfortunealy I would like to create maps in german languages but there is no free available country to edit in german. I´ve found some states that´s have to be edit in german languages or some states who are available to request with german language. (UL14e, AR016…)

So what can i do? I would like to request any available country and try to create fancy stuff with josm that i have already installed…

Thanks a lot.

Greets, Conny

Hi Conny,

du kannst auch auf Deutsch in irgendeinem blauen Land (z.B. Rhododactylia, Commonia) bearbeiten, wo Deutsch nicht die Hauptsprache ist. Wenn du dein eigenes Land dann irgendwann kriegst kannst du ja dorthin die Sachen bewegen die du bereits erstellt hast.

Hey! Welcome to OGF!

I’m happy to see you already have some plans of what you want to do. I would urge you to start by editing in a ‘blue territory’ as found on the Overview map in order for yourself to figure out the basics of OGF mapping as well as for the admins to be able to see your ability and thus be better able to help you find a territory that suits you.

Before you have anything mapped, it is hard to help you. I would recomend the new island where you can map whatever you want in any language, and when you have something to show, you can request a territory and move your work there.

That you already have JOSM is a great start and perhaps shows that you already have some experience with this type of program? I hope you will enjoy mapping in OGF and look forward to seeing your creations in the future

@Tito danke für den hinweis :D

@Liadrien, well i´ve read the FAQ and some other expierences with josm and for my opinion it´s a nice thing. I already have change the “servers” from osm and this fancy stuff here, it was a little bit difficult but it works now on this server. Thanks for your help with new island, i´ll draw something maybe fancy things :)

Even on the tutorial islands you can create a land. Of course when you stop for a while your efforts are removed. As with every starters work. But Whether you are starting in German, Dutch, French, it is all no problem. I have seen Chinese and Arabic on the map.

Personally I doubt language is the perfect base for building. The ideas, the connections with others and the wiki-links are, in my opinion, far better bases. But, then again: It is your country, when you get the land, and it is up to you to fill it, just like you seem fit.

Greetings, Arbhin
