New City

Posted by PueblaPueblaMx on 27 June 2022 in English (English).

Hey!

I’ve been beggining to create this city in Sainte-Agnés and am quite invested in the project. I kind of wanted to show it off to the world and get some feedback.

Does anyone have any ideas for expansion, as well as a name idea?

I have a very limited knowledge on the type of cities you are building so I’ll let others give feedback on that.

I happened to notice you are using some real world company names like Adidas, Nike, Gucci etc. You probably should change those as using real brands isn’t allowed. Some areas may also have some scaling issues. At least the curvy hill side roads look really narrow.

And of course the more you map the easier it gets to get the scaling and shapes right. I haven’t used the iD editor in along time, but JOSM felt a lot better back when I was starting. Of course JOSM has a learning curve as well to get it working and finding all the tools and shortcuts.

Happy mapping!

Seeing as how you are using (what I think looks like) Parisian names, I’ll assume your idea is to have some sort of french european-looking city.

If this is the case, I’d suggest trying to place the city center/old city as soon as possible, and it should be the focal point of the entire urban area and many important roads will radiate from it.

I’d suggest placing it directly north of your current build, possibly likling it with the hill you got going on in the west, as it would have been an important strategic outlook point.

As per European fashion, I’d also avoid putting highways above ground near the city center, so could be worth thinking about wide avenues and large roundabouts instead :P

Hopefully I was able to help, but if you have any sort of questions or ideas regarding what I said, please let me know

Much love, Colombus

That’s a nice contribution to Ste Agnes. But please keep in mind that Ardencia is a little bit like Canada or Australia, this is not a very old country, so the style to use should be a little bit less european and more northern American or Australian. Thanks again for your involvement.
