Border Wall

Posted by No Way on 20 January 2019 in English (English)

I was able to get Congress to agree to build a border wall with the southern border. How to get this to render on the map? I used the line and wall functions under JOSM but nothing is showing up on any zoom level.

I can see the southern border wall, but fences do not render for anything below zoom level 15.

If you would like to make it more obvious you could try and look at places in the real-world, such as the border fence between El Paso and Cuidad Juarez or any other place with barrier infrastructure, such as Guantanamo Bay, the Turkish-Syrian border, or the Palestine-Israel Border.

Typically as well as a fence, there tend to be military installations, parallel roads and checkpoints. Both the border and the barrier tend to follow a natural obstacle such as a river, which serves as an extra line of defence. These objects will render at higher zoom levels.

I have to ask, Where is the need for a border fence? Is it realistic for your country and does your neighbour know about this fence?

Building border walls in these days, isn't this some kind of role play?

If I were one of your neighbors I wouldn't be happy about a wall without any agreement.

Antigo will actually have a border wall with UL137 at the south to prevent people out or in. As for a fence, I may build it between Pretany and Antigo

But that wall existed since the 5th century AD, so it isnt new.

The neighbor to the south appears to have Arabic for place names and the map is drawn using both English and Arabic. The Ingerish settlers to my territory made a treaty with the Maltapease people to form the country you see today. The culture of the Maltapease and the Ingrish was blended as you would see today in New Zealand, United States and Australia. The southern neighbors have a vastly different language and I wanted to ward off any potential clashes and possible illegal immigration by illegal aliens.

The Maltapease were so lightly populated that they signed a treaty similar to the that of the Maori of New Zealand save the loyalty to the Crown.

My tiny little city-state of Charlottesburg has a border wall and controlled ports of entry. It just shows up as a thin line.

"Possible illegal immigration" to your country? You made my day!

Oh, I see, they have a different culture and language and, oh no, they seem to be Arabic! Drug dealers, rapers, muslims, bad people, ...

Role play and such xenophobic and inhuman shit. Please stop it, no further justification, just stop it! OGF is a community for mapping, not to build walls and invent enemies where no enemies are!

@mstr I beg to differ. Antigo and Pretany are still at war with each other.

I agree with Mstr here. Build a wall if you must (the Chinese and Hadrian were way ahead of you), but please make it part of a common history with your neighbours for whatever reason you both can come up with instead of copying current events on earth that have no context in OGF :)

More "My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard", less "you'll pay for a wall"

Adding a usage tax on all the wire transfers back to the other country helped pay for the wall. The under the table cash is getting taxed one way or another.

I don't have a problem with a border wall per se but if you're that eager to build one and role-play as Trump-lite I think that's a stain on your character.

@ No Way - Why would anyone would want to migrate from here to here?

Having a usage tax on wire transfers would imply that such transfers already exist. They don’t.

Still, I am glad that your wall will prevent illegal border crossings from your country into Unesia. Thank you.

Hahaha, @UN1TY is right! Nobody would want to go to that country anyway, do it's a useless wall.

I do feel the need to question the logic of this now that I've moved into the neighborhood...
