Is there a water depth map of the ogf world?

Posted by MOI N on 6 August 2019 in English (English)

when making islands, you need to know how deep the water is and whether you can put an island there because putting an island in a big trench is unrealistic. any maps, or do we just invent where the deep places are?

i'm probably spamming entries but oh well.

You know, I'm sorry I can't answer that, but that's actually a great question. My entries are way mor pointless than that lol

Usually water eill be less deep near the mainland. You can try to refer to real war atlas which shows water depths and try to see some pattern.

Theres an ongoing topo map project but mainly on land.

Hmm - if there IS an island, the water can not be deep. If you draw an island, you define, that there is no water and around more or less flat water. What is the problem?

for example , it is for island building. because , what if an island is far away , but you don't know the shallowness. i'm wanting to build an island more than the 22km away from mainland rule , meaning there would be a deep spot between the island and the pre-built island

Well, there could be, but it could be changed.

The main rule about island building is the 100/100 rule. no more than 100km out, no more than 100km^2.

Other than that, nothing is really mattered.

On the OGF-map bottom left is a marker - km and miles. Then see at your screen, how many cm or inch your island is away from the continent and compare this with the marker left down. You can make some things with hand, not always with the computer.

"i use id so i cant measure distance"

Use Ctrl+I and you can measure distance.

CTRL + i is a good tool for ID, but I think he will measure greater distances.

You have been directed toward it already: OGF:Rules of the sea. You cannot add islands to be "THENORTHERNMOST", outwith those rules. You cannot then add reefs to the far west.

Hey Wangi,

Every country has a northernmost-point or other national superlative, so what you used to dismiss this guy is useless. He hasn't even talked about being northernmost or anything of the like.

And why can't he make a reef?

The user created this diary entry after an exchange with admin.

They created a new island here at the extreme north of their boundary and claimed it as the northernmost point of Antarephia - the entire continent. It was created to be an international superlative. The island was moved here.

A reef was created here, at least 400km away from their territory, incompatible with the rules.

And there is more.
