Ideas about Fallsington

Posted by Manusaurus on 25 May 2019 in Spanish (EspaƱol)

Hi there guys! Last year I started working in a London-like city by taking advantage of some nice river features I saw around those coordinates, north-west of Gobras City.

I left it abandoned and I've returned for a bit, but I think I am currently overwhelmed and I definitely made many noobie mistakes, such as the ambition of creating a gargantuan urban area, completely not fitting the overall Gobrassanya style, etc.

A bit of backstory: My previous edit -and the first thing I made in Opengeofiction was Minato in Rhododactylia:

https://opengeofiction.net/#map=13/-10.7621/170.6501

(Disregard the weird harbor/pier shapes, it was only an experiment and I don't know how to use JOSM -or even install it, it's like rocket science for me- and this affects a lot the quality of any bigger shape I'd like to create)

After that I requested a territory but again it looks like a lot of work -It is my fault in any case, maybe I don't have enough time or dedication for this task- and they told me I was using real life names, though many people use them and I think most of my names were more or less original by that time (after that I may have used more real life names as I gave up the idea of getting a territory-. So I finally found that location in Gobrassanya.

The good thing is that the region looks super cool and active. The bad thing: me. I am afraid that I am destroying the quality of the Gobras City surrounding with this massive London like city which style doesn't really fit the tropical - hi-tech style of the country.

I absolutely love OGF and its fun but I have a conflict because it is too serious/professional for me at the same time: I don't want to disturb the work of other people (and Gobras City is a very professional collaborative project) but I am also afraid that the criticism (that I want to receive with this post in any way, to be honest) will make me finally leave the site.

I don't know what you think, which changes of general style, scale of the city you'd make, if you'd prefer that I talk with mappers working in Gobras City to create a more cohesive metro area, etc. If you generally find that Fallsington is not that bad or can be rescued/modified/adapted -if you find that it can make sense- could you help me with it?

I even started a CERN-like area inspired by the cool LIGO idea in Gobras City. So I definitely could take care of Fallsington, specially small scale-detail, which I like the most. Roads, railroads, junctions, I am an absolute mess with those and I would like help -also I don't use JOSM as I said before.

Thank you all for your feedback, Manusaurus
