Where would you like to live?

Posted by Sarepava on 4 September 2015 in English (English).

Just a straw poll - which country on the OGF planet would you most like to live in? And which to visit on holiday? You can’t pick one you own.

I would probably go for either Kalm or Nordurland to reside in, and Manhal, Sathria and Khaiwoon to visit. Although I’d visit everywhere eventually.

The place I would like to visit would be Czarny Bzreg, Galicja. Czarny Bzreg was one of the first cities I saw two years ago on OGF that was already complete and highly detailed. Czarny Bzreg inspired me to make more detailed areas later on.
This place I’d like to live in would be Gobras City. I’m not sure I’d it counts seeing as I add to it still. Gobras City feels like a real city because if you leave for a while and come back there is plenty of new things to discover just like any growing city. The growth in Gobras City has slowed down considerably but at one time there were quite a few people building the city together.

I would love to live in Latina, Khaiwoon and/or Villa Constitution. I’d love to visit areas like Wiwaximouthe, Gobras City, Beishan, Remiville, and St. RIchards. That’s just to name a few, though. I’ve always prefered living in larger cities, and I like the metropolis feel that I see and feel in Latina, Khaiwoon, Gobras City, Beishan, and Villa Constitution. I also love the details in cities like Wiwaximouthe, St. Richards and Remiville.

Roantra. I realize even now it is not yet fully developed, yet I like how, strictly through the maps and place names, it evokes a truly foreign country. Admittedly, I encountered Roantra on the Urban Geofiction before coming to OGF - so I was already “living there” because of that.

Other places I’d like to visit: Onnutu, Khaiwoon, Wiwaxia, Latina, Karolia, Tarott, Krasynin, Drull (yes, I can’t quite figure that one out, but it’s why I worked hard to save it when its original creator abandoned it). I guess those were all early encounters. More recent compelling places: Rots, and Neo Delta of the “Astrasian Southern Cone”.

I would really like to live in Roantra. As Luciano it’s the first geofiction I discovered thanks to Norscand, and I fell in love with the level of details, the hand dawn map and the atmosphere that it creates. I would live in southeastern Roantra because I love beeing close to the sea and the mountains, and not too close to big cities.

The places I would definitely visit would be St Richards, Norad, Kalm in general, Kaiwoon, Onnutu, Frjálshöfn and all Nordurland, Galicja, Vega, Suria’s big cities and also Mahhal’s because they appeal to me for many reasons, Pyingshum, the Yersinian archipelago, Udzdanarat for its nature and floating villages, and soon Østermark for its nature and (future) towns. In fact a lot more places too created by amazing people, to make several journeys around the world.

I would like to live in Latina, Quetinsburgh, or Khaiwoon. Personally when I first came here on OGF, I could not find a city.

The other cities I would visit is Ergolanyum, First Harbor, Murthwaite, Woolport, Villa Constitucion, and Porto Colon. I would also like to explore Sathria, Wiwaxia, Ingerland, Rots, and Neo Delta. My thoughts on Khaiwoon is because the way the city was created, it looks realistic to me.

Practically speaking, I’d probably live someplace where I can speak Ingerish and enjoy a reasonably warm climate. Southern coast of Wiwaxia, maybe? Being male, however, I might not enjoy living in a matriarchy.

As for travel, it’s hard to decide. If I had to choose one place, I’d probably go with the most bizarre option possible. Ūdzđąnąrąt, I guess? I’m not sure they’d want me visiting.

I will say this: Karolia and Arataran look like they have some pretty great food. :-) Right now I’m trying to cook something up for Khaiwoon… wish me luck, haha.

It’d be best to live in a Gaermanic country with a Mediterranean climate, so the best would be Wiwaxmouthe, Wiwaxia. It’s also close to Reeland, which (although I’m its owner) I’d like to visit :) UL031 (preferably west coast) would also be a nice place to live, it just needs to be mapped better.

Very interesting topic, Sarepava!!

I would love living in Puerto Geo (Gobrassanya) or Khaiwoon, the first cities I visited when I joined OGF. Some places in Vega could be good to me too. But If I can choose a city I am creating, I would mention Rugenia.

About visiting, I like beaches, so I can say about Onnutu and Lonowai Islands. But, of course, I would like to visit historic places too, as Karolia or Latina

Wow, great question! And this ended up getting me to look around again more at what’s out there, which is pretty amazing. There’s so much and I realized I really need to, uh, get out more in OGF. I’m sure I’ve missed so many hidden gems.

So here goes. There are so many places I’d love to see or be a tourist there: Krasynin in Galicja; Tarott in Kalm; Elegantia in Zylanda; Gobras City of course; the coast of Hylldien looks like it’s on its way to becoming really spectacular; Leluwa and all of Onnutu look like an interesting vacation spot as does Goytakanya despite its poverty; the cities of Big Ordyn’ and Onegin in Chara; Campo Verde in Brasonia; the island of Claretti; the country of Mahal; and the city of Nekkar - actually the country of Rots, with its unique language; Santjäna; Caerarthen, many others.

As for places to live, I think Villa Constitucion, Latina Cidudad or Khaiwoon - I’m a big city kind of guy and these three places really feel like such fully realized big cities, they are all models of how I want to build my cities. (Which I’m trying to do with Østermark, with more accurate detail, features and scale.)

And, very honored that Wiwaxmouthe and Wiwaxia were popular destinations. And Isleño, despite it being a matriarchy, I think you’d be comfortable there - they’re improving on men’s rights every day ;-)
