How's everyone doing?

Hi! I just wanted to know if you've done something new or something you're proud about... I mean, I'm a little bit lost, I don't have ideas nor anything like that. I'd like to find inspiration somewhere in this tiny big world

Well, if you want to see good mapping, you cab check the wiki's nominated featured map. There is an archive showing a list of nice places mapped as well.

A few places in OGF are quite nice: Gobras City, Khaiwoon, the central part of St. Richards, Pretany (especially the AN HQ there), some cities in Karolia, Stanton in drvelopment and the neighbouring states etc.

For me, I am working on Kontroga now. It is a large city in Antigo. I imagine it to be some mining city, since a tin and iron mine was found near the city in the 16th century. This helped the growth of the city. It was established in honour of one of Antigo's known kings Mark Dagermu, who has a castle there. Under Pretanic rule, it turned into a dark corner of crime and prositution. So a large fire destroyed the city. Rebuilt by Surians who discovered some valuable tin nearby.

Thanks for the compliment zhenkang. I've recently done some work on detailing the central station area in Santjana: https://opengeofiction.net/#map=16/50.9165/111.5740 . This has a whole backstory about the development of the railway lines here over the last 150 years. I had to think this all through, then spend about a day rationalising the lines going south from the station and all the crossovers and curves. Then I also revised the lines heading out to the airport. The point here is that most of what you see here is about the third iteration; the map is subject to revision several times to get it right. I try to be disciplined enough to delete and revise things that I see do not work, rather than build more and dig the hole deeper.
