Hi, I recently created a small town, and I was wondering if you could check it out and give some feedback!

Location: Nativa, Huacahuaca, Commonia

I like it, maybe make it bigger or add another connection

My biggest recommendation would be to look at some real life towns and places on OpenStreetMap and get a feel for how things tend to look in towns and how to go about mapping them. For a town that size maybe look at places like this.

There's also the issue of the fact the town is smack dab in the middle of a rainforest, but that obviously wasn't your fault and fixing it will be a bit more complicated so that's something someone more experienced would probably have to fix anyhow

  • The railroad is way too curvy. Trains won't be able to run on it. Also it ends on a road and cuts through the whole town unreasonably.
  • The roads are drawn too randomly. I mean, don't make it straight everything, but certainly not disordered. See here.
  • Misuse of building tag. They're not zones.
  • On the other hand, actual landuse areas, which are indeed zones, should stick to the road (Use the same nodes).

I can say that you really have been reaching progress, but the thing is that most of the roads and sidewalks are facing random directions (I mean, I know that not a are pointing N, S, E, and W, but they should at least be a bit straight). I don't think so you are trying to make it downtown, but if you are, make the roads straighter like Downtown San Francisco and Los Angeles... And: make the roads a bit longer too, because tertiary roads are not that small. Rivers/streams don't end in roads. And try not to make buildings/areas that are shaped randomly... Sorry if I am adding too much...

Hmm - (sorry for this being quite late feedback, but oh well), okay.

  • There appears to be a few classification problems and issues. Why is there a secondary road running parallel to a primary road, less than 50m away - for example - when they should be different carriageways of the same road?

  • The roads look zig-zagged and rushed. Look at real-life towns, and compare them to yours to get a general style for future usage.

  • The railways are unusably curvy. Make sure they are fairly straight - and then locate their stops. :D

  • It - as stated before - appears to be right in the middle of the Andaruby Rainforest. I'd suggest, for your next town, moving to blank space.

Much better than my starting town (I've said this too much), so well done, though!

Hello, will you be interested in mapping in the Pretanic Faction State?
