Hot Springs area

Posted by Inkyatari on 3 October 2019 in English (English)

Kinda proud of the Excelsior Thermal Area in Border Mountains National Park...

Some more work needs to be done, but I'm on a roll here

Location: 33.951, 101.029

Please make your parking lot MUCH smaller. It's (longer than 500m) x 500m. Personally would say 300m x 100m should accommodate enough cars.

In the middle of wilderness? No café? No restaurant? No hotel? No outdoor swimming? And yes - how many peole are there, if you have such great parking area? And then such small building? Will nobody earn money in your land with this hot spring?

"In the middle of wilderness? No café? No restaurant? No hotel? No outdoor swimming?"

In national parks in the US, it's illegal to swim in hot springs (exception of Hot Springs NAtional Park in Arkansas, but that's an unusual case.)

There are many hot springs areas in the US park system without major amenities: Norris Geyser Basin, and the Mud Volcano area in Yellowstone; Bumpass Hell in Lassen Volcanic National Park for two

As for a lodge area, there's one further down the road. As for earning money there's a park entrance fee, which is collected at the two entrance stations to the north.

You can make a node as a toll if you want.

The lodge at this lake? [https://opengeofiction.net/#map=14/33.8687/101.0062] How many trees in the lake .... You make the lake as a multipilygon-relation for nothing, you there have no inner and no outer. Your wood is an great and very complicated relation - so the lake can be a part of the wood-relation 126473 [https://opengeofiction.net/relation/126473] as inner line.

I'm still trying to figure things out, as per relations. I'm trying to add a island into the lake, but I'm fairly confused about it. I don't want to redo the lake, but I fear I may7 have to.

No - you can draw a line a line around the lake and definite it as "inner" to relation 126473 and too at this same line as outer of a new relation with natural=water and water=lake. Then you can delete the lake and can set your island as "inner" line inside the new lake-relation. Then you can fille the area of the island with wood, grass, bushland or what else.
