Bourgeois Island

Posted by TheMapper27 on 15 October 2018 in French (Français)

My first successful attempt at creating an island. Rate it out of 10 in the comments/replies below.

P.S. As of writing this, the island is only visible in TopoMap and Histor.

Location: Voltaville South, Pogreenia

Hi, TheMapper27, the island is now visible. Your island looks nice and natural, but maybe start building things on it soon. It looks like some sort of tropical island, so maybe you could make a ferry to it, and add beaches and hotels. Overall, I would rate it 9/10.

Happy Mapping!

3, but I'd give you a couple points more if you took away the highway across the ocean just next to it. That is a massive violation of verisimilitude.

5, Looks very weird to me for being an island.

Of course it will look weird, we’re not used to seeing these types of islands. The first time anybody would’ve seen Hawaii, he/she would’ve also thought that it looked weird. Greenland, too, with all of the fjords.

Also, if you guys would’ve read the text which was written on the motorway, you would’ve seen that it said ‘DO NOT EDIT BEYOND THIS LINE”.

I see this text. Why would someone call a motorway that?

In the circumstances, it might not even be a motorway at all. It could be a reminder that you can’t edit past that line.

You asked for a mark, I give you a mark: 3, not because its weird - but because it doesn't look like a real island:

say this (7/10) or this (8/10).

(Note that I think some islands in OGF are better mapped than ones in OSM!)

@iiEarth,

What about tagging the motorway as an admin boundary? The boundary may still look weird, but at least a)it is equally as visible & b)it could be justified to be realistic.

;D

Hope this helps,

Why is everyone talking about the motorway rather than the actual island xD

The island looks relatively natural to me, although I would avoid sharp angled peninsulas pointing to several directions. I would round up some of them and add a chain of smaller islands as a continuation to one of them. Islands look more natural if they seem to reflect a consistent underground topography. And add more nodes as you start mapping details.

The reason everyone talks about the "motorway" is because it is really annoying. This is not the first time remarks have been made about it. If you don't want to delete it completely, I strongly advice that you retag it as an administrative border.

Why you want any comment for nothing else as a little bit coastline? Better, to draw something at your island, before asking such questions.

@Myrcia - your tree needs more information. And a name!

@Myrcia is that meant to be a joke?

The island needs some details, like what histor said. Unless you create a nice chain or archipelagos, then it is smth to comment about. The shape is not bad, but like what LemonKing said, I would avoid sharp angled peninsulas pointing to several directions, especially for the curved side on the west.

The motorway is not really meant to be a motorway ...

@zhenkang,

"The motorway is not really meant to be a motorway ..."

Therefore it should not be tagged as a motorway.
