Introducing: Deodeca

Introducing: Deodeca

Deodeca is a country in Southern Archanta, bordering the Federal States, Ardencia and Ambrosia. It is planned to be a Spanish-speaking Latin American country. It will be a collaborative country.

But we need your help

The plan is the following, in order:

  1. Find a list of interested mappers, a “group of initial collaborators” (steps following are decided by that group)
  2. Rework the coastline and then make a basic topographic plan.
  3. Make a basic hydrology (=water) plan
  4. Decide the location of cities and main roads.
  5. Set the borders of subdivisions.

After that, the subdivisions (=provinces, states or similar) will be given away to users wanting it, like in the Federal States, however, they should not add more cities, and can only add motorways with the community agreeing. All collaborators, even those not initial, will just be referred to as “collaborators”, who will be able to vote on things like highway numbering schemes, river names, flags, etc. The initial collaborators will be able to vote on the first five steps and things like that.

If you’re interested, message me. Things will be organised similarly to the Federal States, however learning from the coherency issues it has/had.

Location: -40.428, 135.555

Ooooh! For sure interested.

aaa where do I sign up

Comment from Lorenzo49 on 20 September 2020 at 05:48

Oooh! a Latin American country?, im interested too

Just by saying “I’m interested” or similar you sign up. I’d say it is required to know how to use JOSM and multipolygons, so if you want to map in Deodeca, you should learn it. It would also help make your mapping better in your home country too.

Okay my computer cannot operate JOSM, sorry

Sign me up!

Does this mean fake Toronto will be going?

Comment from Lithium-Ion on 20 September 2020 at 16:13

Yep, Aspera, along with the rest of the poor quality mapping in the territory currently will be deleted.

Comment from Tito_zz on 20 September 2020 at 16:55

I wouldn’t call it poor quality. Maybe we could keep the airport.

Comment from 2amCereal on 20 September 2020 at 17:23

The airport is almost identical to YYZ. A new airport would be much better IMO.

Is Deodeca going to be a wealthy country? Or more like a middle income country like most Latin American countries today.

Comment from Tito_zz on 20 September 2020 at 18:13

I’d say it’ll be middle income.

1.) Precisely. 2.) Im in no position to say anything is certain, but probably a mix. Parts of Ardencia have Spanish in use but then Southern Deodeca now has French in use and that seems like a realistic mix.

I would love to help in this project! I will take whatever subdivision is left. If this is already a full project, then I hope all of you have fun on this part

2.) I was in a discussion about languages that would be used in Deodeca and Tito said that the south (AR060-06 region) would be some sort of native haven. Spanish would spread out from Deodeca, as was agreed by surrounding users. Dutch was also suggested due to the border with Ambroisie but Tito pointed out that the border regions of Ambroisie were using some sort of Iberian language. Don’t know about the usage of French.

The Ambrosian mapper pointed out it’s Portuguese due to that area formerly bordering Yuris, which was a Portuguese-speaking area, however he will change it to Spanish. North of the mountains Spanish will be a majority, however I plan for south of the mountains to be a mish-mash between Spanish, French and native languages of the area. @Geoc3ladus read the plan.
