How to create harbours ?

Posted by Portier on 22 September 2018 in French (Fran├žais)

I am a beginner on Opengeofiction, I am for a few days working on my own country (Free Republic of Limensophia, on the Uthyran coast, in the north of Tarephia), and I don't know how to do harbours (I have tried to drive a line and tag it "harbour" but nothing appears on the map.) It is of course an obvious thing for many people here, and it is maybe not the good place for this kind of question, but if someone could answer, ...

Only to tag "harbour" makes nothing to the line. What do you espect? For an harbour you had to draw all the details, an harbour has to have. I think, it is a good idea, if you look to some harbours drawn in OGF and learn, what is to tag for a realistic seaport.

I went into 'edit' mode to see what you intended, and was pleasantly surprised, as you have done quite a good design for a harbour.

The only mistake you made: you created a separate outline. All you have to do is to add extra nodes to the coastline polygon and make them follow your harbour countour and your there. To start you off, I did one pier for you, so you can see the idea - the rest is up to you.

Marking the area with 'landuse=industrial' might also help.

happy mapping !

Marcello.

I find the harbour to be too small to be honest.
