Right, after hearing multiple positive words of "I'm in" from several people, I went ahead and created the new chat for OpenGeoFiction.
How about a video conference? I think it would be fun to get to better know some people around here.

Over the past few weeks i was getting myself ready to use JOSM for the largest, biggest scale work i have ever done on this website. The district of Riekava. (i was very impatient to share it with you guys)
This region is my favourite in Litvania. Best enjoyed at zoom level 13. Below is some information on this area.
Forests - They cover the majority of the region.
Mountains - The region is home to the Svetovidly (world-viewer/seeker) mountains.
Wilderness - Wild streams, gently sloping valleys and calm villages and towns are all commonplace here. Also, the soil here, is well not very fertile so animal agriculture is more common than anything.
Wateeeeeeer! - This area is the most dense in watersheds in Litvania.
Eastern Wildlife Refuge - The second largest of its kind in Litvania, and a very popular camping area, though only in designated places.
Regional Dish - I am yet to come up with something, but i guess it will either be a soup or a lamb meat dish.
Language - The Litvanian spoken here is very different to the Loravian (standard) Litvanian. People tend to emphasize vowels.
Places worth seeing
Dvojtín Castle - A wonderful castle overlooking the confluence of the Riekava and Hornava rivers, surrounded by the ancient market town of Dvojtín.
Hornava - An medieval castle and church were built here, which led many religious Litvanians to travel here, which led the town increasing in size steadily over the centuries. It is a popular spot for believers worldwide.
v. n. Riekava - Though artificial, this is a wonderful freshwater lake where swimming is allowed, so it is a nice place to go during the weekend. If you were curious, "v. n." stands for "vodná nádrž", Litvanian for "water reservoir".
This is the format i will use to present my work in the future.
This is my first fully JOSM place, so i am a bit worried. Anyways i love it! Any suggestions? Comments? Thing to improve? Let me know!
Now i deleted my countrys actual relation by complete accident. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ (couldnt get better hm?)
Can someone pleeaaassseeee help me? or at least send me some sort of tutorial that explains how to do it well? Its REALLY STARTING TO ANNOY ME that i cant get these dumb relations correctly. I have created relation deleted them, left out things, etc... i think it need cleaning by a proffessional. Not me. I cant even map river realistically.
I think i have badly messed up the neighboring countries rleations aswell, so @Nikolia i a, sorry if i did so.
It constantly shows up as just a separate country or some weird sh*t.
So i really want to have this town, Záhorská Bystrica in Litvania. I want it on the other side of the Micheny mountains.
Its name really means "behind the mountainous-bystrica".
Unfortunately it is a 2,500 people settlement in Slovakia. Can we make the exeption?
Just wanted to let you know! Litvanka is on Twitter!
Let me know if you wanna get featured! (I already included some places i think are extremely impressively mapped)
good march to everyone! Ill let everyone know about my work somewhere in the middle of this month.
There is still plenty of languages to fill in this gap.
Go ahead and translate Litvania's name if you can.
I shall go on a mapping spree (or rampage?) the next few weeks to get some good looking mapping done in the Molburg Regions. Stay Tuned...
Theres only one thing i need help with. The boundries. Ive read the wiki many times, and i dont seems to get it. Can someone please help?
Is Beeper still a thing? Whenever i click on any of the link that take me to the website kooper.tk, it never connects with the server. As if the site never existed. Please let me know, because i would love to create a thing for republika.lk magazine!
After @eklas ' diary entry, i created a page titled "Slevic" for all the Slevic languages to put on as a family. There is just one problem. The name Syrillangan (i am repeating eklas' words) does not sound normal to the Syrillangan person. However, the other names propsed sound too similar to "Slavs" or "Slavic".
There is a problem in this because we need to come up with a name that makes sense, isnt biased on Russian spelling, and sounds normal to the Syrillangan person.
Please i would just like to say:
There are multiple linguistic, cultural, religious and mentality differences between West and East Slavs, please do NEVER CATEGORIZE US AS ONE BIG GROUP OF THE SAME PEOPLE. It annoys the hell out of me, and i wanted to emphasize that we are not the same as the Russians. We have different ways of doing things. Including spelling.
Here we can discuss this issue:
I would like to announce that; after delivering its first 20 aircraft to a foreign airline(BalonisAir), i am putting up an offer for you guys to select any MIC aircraft of preference (their descriptions and info on the company are here), and use in your airlines on OGF.
I am aiming for MIC to be the OGF version of Airbus, and i wanted to get a headstart in the industry.
Please let me know if you want to order below.
I just wanted to annouce that Loravia International Airport is open for many more intercontinental flights! Make sure to let me know if you want your airline(s) to fly there.
Also, check this out: New section in litvanka article
My recent obsession in OGF seems to be air travel. I mean it. I have created 5 airlines that are based in Litvania already, with barely enough mapping to support that. I need your advice. What should i do? I want to help the OGF world develop its aviation industry, for more airports, more developed and structured Callsigns, Airport Codes.
Spent all day in the field today. The team caught a terrible cold, and i had to do most of the work for the mission. Hiked up the West Peak aswell, and admired the blizzard for about 30 seconds, before eventually walking back down the slope in a hurry, to get to the warm comfort of the dorms.
The research for today was complete, but was really messy and unorganized. Unfortunately, Mr. Špihlerov will not accept that as an excuse. We are boarding a Cosmos(Litvanka's ultra long haul aircraft) MIC-L300 for Loravia via Latina in 2 days. Apparently its already on its way.
Anyway, ill write tomorrow, when the sun will set at 15:00PM.
I have an idea:
What about an International Ulethan Motorway network?
This would basically work like the real world E-** road network, and would span the entire continent of Uletha. I believe this would fix the messes that people maoe when mapping highways, and would certainly improve international border crossing.
My ideas are:
-The roads would be numbered from U/I/M-1
-They wouldnt have to be newly built roads, but rather a layer on a layer.(i.e we would simp,y take the nice motorways that people build and add an international number to them)
-They would start somewhere in Pretany, Kalm or possibly the countries in western Uletha, and would slowly spider outwards into the northern and eastern regions.
Is there anything thats going to happen this year on OGF?
Last year for example was the Quentinsburgh 2016 Geolympiad.
Guys, still calling for destinations for Litvanka!
Also, would any aerospace companies in OGF (SAI, Watanabe etc..) like to sell some aircraft to Litvanka? So far Litvanka only posesses aircraft from the Litvanian Aerospace company, MIC Aerospace. (I have had this made-up company since i was about 6 years old)
I am looking for volunteers to design liveries (or a livery) for Litvanka. I do not posess the technical knowledge of photoshop to be able to implement my livery onto aircraft photos.
how do i find which way my runway is going?
I have lately been working on an airline for Litvania. That is Litvanka Airlines, which will be the flag carrier. It is an airline that operates from Molburg-Ošina, and aims to fly all around the world, with serving at least two airports in every Ulethan country(if the country has two).
Ill start work on the wiki page later.
Another airline im working on is Horjene z.a, a regional airline based in Tirstená. It operates in and out of Litvania, flying mainly to tourist destinations. It an extremely popular low-cost Litvanian airlines, and will hopefully become the EasyJet of OGF.
All i need for you guys to help is destinations. If you want to add your airport(s) please leave a comment in the following format:
#Comment that you want to make (optional) ##Litvanka: Destination 1, Destination 2* ##Horjene: Destination 1, Destination 2*
*You dont have to choose both, choose the one that suites your country's location. For example, Horjene will not fly to Mahhal.
