Update on Mapping in Duncanheim

Posted by Duncan on 10 July 2019 in English (English)

So. I have been working on several things off and on. *Establishing national highways and rail lines (I have finished all the main ones, new ones will emerge as I map more towns and detail) *Mapping the capital city, Kattenden (This is an off and on thing. I have established the metro rails, national rail connections, an airport, and at least labelled a number of neighborhoods, as well as detailing and changing detail of the coastline. I have also been adding detailed areas in some suburbs, but these are not yet very large, because detail takes time) *Small towns here and there (I have also mapped a few small towns when I've needed a break from the urbanity of Kattenden)

Finally, since this territory was apparently at one point owned by someone who copied directly from the real world and this was already there when I got it (apart from the rail line, which I have added), does anyone know if this is a direct copy of something that I should probably delete?

Oh and also I cannot seem to make JOSM connect to OGF using the instructions provided. Any ideas as to what I might be doing wrong?

You need to have an empty line in between the list and the previous paragraph for the unordered list to show.

In what part does it cannot connect to OGF?

Which part of JOSM are you stuck with?

Also I do not believe copy/pasting OSM data here is allowed so you should probably delete it?

You're making quite quick progress in your country and its looking quite good! Have you made a paper sketch and plan of your country? This is an absolute must do just so you know what populations and influences your country has, as well as the rough geography (climates, topology etc...) (on that note, I'd recommend that you map major rivers and at least the outlines of major forests before continuing with rail and road mapping - we built around nature not the other way around).

On the issue with JOSM, you'll have to provide more detail. But don't give up, getting JOSM to work is definitely worth it.
