Sort-of mapper's challenge

Posted by Sarepava on 20 October 2016 in English (English).

I say sort-of because whether it counts as ‘rural detail’ is debatable - but I’ve created some motorway services. These seem to be overlooked in a lot of the OGF world but are essential to any highway network.

Poiylka Services

The access is slightly unusual as the facilities serve both sides of the A20 and also act as a junction for the nearest village. Land could not be acquired on the opposite side, and traffic is light enough not to require doubling of facilities. The service area is one of the smaller ones on the Karolian motorway network

The services have a sit-down buffet restaurant, a fast-food outlet, a cafe and a general store. Toilets, drinking water and showers are available (the first two are legal requirements in Karolia) as well as WiFi, an interactive traffic information point and an old-fashioned phone, There are 10 spaces for electric vehicles with charging points as well as a fuel station for all vehicles. The lawn at the rear of the building has a children’s playground and a picnic area as well as information about the landscape and wildlife of the region. A motel with meeting rooms has recently been built on the site. KAP, the Karolian breakdown service, have a tow truck based here too.

If you’ve built any, show us your motorway or highway services.

While I’ve not built any service station on par and on the detail level of my current work, I did draw a service station north of Decton during my time mapping the region. It can be found here.

It looks great! And ‘Kaffi Stoppi’ is a really cute name.

For my part, I’ve only built this little thing. (By the way, would someone like to open a gas station or a fast food joint in Drabantia? Feel free to claim the ‘vacant’ amenities for your company.)

Awesome work, Sarepava! You’ve inspired me to try and make/fix up a few service stations in Freedemia. :)

@eklas, I made one of the fast food places into a StarBurgers. :)

Excellent work Sarepava! I really like the motorway services you made for your highway system! This is going to make me upgrade my motorway services in Belphenia.

Here’s Freedemia’s first detailed service station. I plan to go back and make/improve others.
