My eyes

Posted by Rasmus Rasmusson on 28 January 2020 in English (English)

After Wyster's recent expansion I ended up in discussions with neighbours about the creation of transnational trade routes. This lead to the initial mapping of the harbour of Reegyth. One thing lead to another and soon I was doing an unscheduled revamping of the harbour front of Wyster's original southwesternmost city of Cervirc, giving ferry destinations their own exits, and adding other details. This lead to the recreation of the Central Station area, and before I knew it I was adding buildings to the city, with Aalborg and Copenhagen (Denmark) as well as Halifax (NS, Canada) as examples. I am not unsatisfied with the result.

I can add more detail (hotels, restaurants, shops, more schools, etc) and I plan to change other things in Cervirc (some items I mapped a few years ago already when I was still new on OGF), but now my eyes hurt so I should work on something less detailed first :)

Your town-center looks fine. A lot of details.

But what about this subway-loop of 35 m? Good luck! [https://opengeofiction.net/#map=17/51.79048/129.48634].

Love your center. The fine balance between town and country, too. But either Wyster is incredibly rich or ruled by a bunch of mega-progressive forces: the 2 -line subway system is way overdone. A tramway system with 4, 5 lines would easily do, methinks. Think Helsinki, Malmo.

Nevertheless, better mapping than my average work.

Hmm.. You make fair points! I'm very bad at estimating so the loop may indeed be too small. And I must admit that the subway was an act of laziness in the first place as it's easier to map than a tram system. I will think about this.

Malmö doesn't have a tramway though, as far as I can tell from the map.. Or did you mean Göteborg?

Oopsie. Yes, i meant Göteborg. Or Tallin or Riga for that matter. Bremen ? (or would that exite Histor too much ;-) ?

Well - Bremen has some more as 5 streetcar-lines, as I remember. But for Rasmus town a strretcar-net seemes the better soloution as this two subway-lines.

And what about a Ferry from Prood Eran to Bric Treuh with a streetcar-connection at both sides? (And yes, I have seen the Butallas-Street - thanks)

Man, those interchanges look so much better.

Thanks! And I have found several other things that may need an update as well
