Is there an OGF Canada? 1 day ago

It would really depend on which aspect you are talking about: * Language diversity * Culture * Size * etc.

A half-baked naval academy, with a few warships nearby (training ships in the dry docks will come soon), as well as more complex things.

I already have plans to orchestralise my anthem, and a few have suggested some changes which I shall make soon.

Deletion? 22 days ago

So the A101 used to go though Chavalenne, but after much discussion about it, it did not seem fitting to have a motorway go right through the city. Instead, I will extend it as a primary road. Also in Chavalenne, I will definitely be downgrading a lot of the roads, when I get to it.

On the subject of direct routes, that will definitely be a thing I need to continue doing.

Thanks,

How do you create States 24 days ago

Well, make an administrative boundary and set it with an admin level of more than 2 (as 2 is for international boundaries). Then make a relation for the state as a boundary, set it to boundary=administrative, then set admin level to the same as the line.Set the line's role as outer, and repeat for all lines that define the shape of the state.

I hope this was not too confusing to follow...

My new islands 26 days ago

The island are nice, but I'd suggest some man made features if you're going to make those lighthouses. Otherwise they're really nice.

Are there any Hurricane Seasons in OGF? 26 days ago

Actually it's taken from the link to World Climate Consensus Proposal in the Dashboard, under "OGF Non-Wiki Resources"

Are there any Hurricane Seasons in OGF? 26 days ago

I would think that hurricanes/typhoons/cyclones do exist in OGF in all oceans (for the current open world) as there is enough open, deep, warm water and enough calm wind for them to develop.

The following image may help to predict where hurricanes would develop. (Taken from Wiki Page OGF:Dashboard)

I am starting in Commonia 26 days ago

It's really good that you took the time to make all those extra details, rather than making your city large but empty. I can tell that with time, you'll do really well.

I am starting in Commonia 26 days ago

The location of your city is peculiar, and it doesn't have any natural features nearby to help it out. So I would suggest adding a natural feature, be it a river, a lake (of a realistic size), or a mountain.
I would also suggest changing some of the pedestrian roads from areas into lines, then connect it to others, like Arisuaq said.

Thanks,

New Country 27 days ago

In the OGF World, Crenru would not sound weird as everyone living in it is used to it.

On another part, the name's sound really depends on the language you plan to map it in. Personally I think it's a fine name for Ingerish.

Question about making large changes to the map. about 1 month ago

I made the transition a little while ago, though it did take some convincing. After checking out some of the cool features, I was completely changed and did my best to get better at JOSM.
A piece of advice I would give you is to look at each tab and figure out the keybinds for each function, so you can get used to the basic functions quicker.

Balto Island about 1 month ago

I would suggest adding more detail to the mountains, like cliffs, valleys, and even some glacier rivers. As well, I think that your peaks are too close to each other, so remove some of them and keep the notable peaks. It is also possible to make your curves more detailed, like in here https://opengeofiction.net/#map=16/-68.1749/21.1027.

You may want to take a look of some islands in Antarctica to see how you can make your island look even more realistic.
This area of Antarctica looks similar. https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=7/-62.768/-57.869

Otherwise I think it's good!

My city(es) about 1 month ago

Good luck and I hope that Oxford Beach can become even better!

My city(es) about 1 month ago

Congrats on three weeks! I can say that you have achieved more than I did in 3 weeks.

This is probably not what you want to hear though. I must point out a few things about Oxford Beach and company.

  1. First, your airport has.. airports for runways. You may want you fix that and other aspects of the airport, maybe straightening it. https://opengeofiction.net/edit#map=17/28.97826/158.33309

  2. You may also want to check the scale and shape of some of your buildings:
    https://wiki.opengeofiction.net/util/map_scale.html?map=C/18/28.97064/158.30738&map2=OSM/x/43.85043/-79.39993&pxpt=0.277&scale=1886

    • To square something in the iD editor, press S while having something selected.
    • To circle in iD, press O
  3. It may just be me, but I feel like your buildings and settlements are too far. You should combine your settlements to make it more dense.

Thanks,
Zekiel
