OpenGeofiction

I'm new with questions and stuffs :P

Posted by Froggychum on 14 December 2016 in English (English).

These people on this website seem really nice! I have a few qustions:

-How do I officially make my city? (I dont have a territory yet) -Where should I start for the world lore (I like to read as chronologicaly as possible)?

That’s all, I’ll look more stuff up now…

Anyway, thanks for reading this diary, and could you please direct me to important resources?

Add the point to any part of your city (edit), then type features- city, name that point.

Hey, welcome to OGF!

  1. After you’ve edited on the wiki for 7 days, you can request an available territory by messaging an admin and requesting a green territory from this map.

  2. The wiki is the primary source of the world’s history, where you can get a good idea of what each country is about and its history. There is also a “World news” wordpress site.

I strongly recommend you download JOSM and configure it to edit your country. It is a very powerful application and it allows you to do a lot more than the basic editors. Instructions on how to configure JOSM to Opengeofiction can be found here.

The community is always here to help you so let us know if you have more questions!

Happy mapping.

Hi, welcome. Out of interest, how did you find out about the site?

for wangi: I was just looking up stuff that i liked, I don’t remember how the search that brought me here came up (I cant check now, because i had to clear browsing history for this site), but I remembered seeing this site a while ago (6 months i guess?). I looked it up more, and thought it was amazing! So i decided to make an account, and start at it! Its going great so far. Thx for commenting on my diary post :P Bai!

for Thunderbird: Thanks for the help (i didnt know it was the wiki for 7 days, i thought it was the actual map!), now i have more questions!

  1. How do i contact an admin?
  2. Can you recommend some articles to start with?

Thanks alot, and Ill check out JOSM

:P Bai!

No, I’m sorry, it is 7 days of editing the actual map. Sorry, that was a typo.

You can contact an admin directly by going to this URL: (http://opengeofiction.net/message/new/admin)

For help getting started, I would read this page, and links connected to it you find helpful.

Making realistic countries is also a very good beginning wiki article to read.

for Thunderbird:

Thanks! I was wondering what version of JOSM i need to download?

Also, if you have JOSM, i have some questions before i download:

-Does it require coding? -How big is the download file? -Is it hard to learn or setup?

BTW: thanks for helping me out so much (I ask a lot of questions)!

kthxbai :P

The newest stable version, 11223 should be fine. No coding required but make sure you have installed.

There is a learning curve to the software, but once you get used to it you can map some amazing things.

I started using the JOSM software last night for the first time, it’s amazing, a million times more powerful than the browser interface!

Thx guys, sorry Ive been gone so long, I’m gonna make a quick diary update on why…

Comment from Froggychum on 17 December 2016 at 17:26

Hey everyone,

This seems to be “Froggychum question thread” now. So I have another question: 3 days ago i made an edit to the map, it still hasnt shown (not on any layer) I know it got though because I checked history.

If anyone knows why this happened, I’d like to know.

Until then I’m gonna see what I can do about it..

KTHXBAI

Hey guys, quick question:

I know I have to edit 7 days to get a territory, do I have to edit 7 days continuously, or is it 7 days total?

thx bai <3
