Two years in OGF about 1 month ago

Congratulations on two years, Zk!

Yes, I've redone my capital and nation quite a few times, but I think I'm starting to settle on something (finally!). We can further develop ties, and I anticipate your Chinese empire; you've told me it would be relatively close to Beaumontan.

Anyways, congratulations on being here for two years, and may you continue a good career here in OGF!

Thanks,
Zekiel

RHD(Right Hand Drive / Left Side driving system) 2 months ago

Hi,

So is it okay? Well most nations are consistent in driving side, and Commonia just happens not to be one of them. Nevertheless, I strongly suggest that you use the right side, to keep the nation uniform. You could do it with left side if you plan to move it into your own territory afterwards, but otherwise, keep it the same.

Thanks,
Zekiel

Verisimilitude - how is it possible? 2 months ago

I agree that Verisimilitude is a complex concept, but of course there should be some ways to compromise, ex. Set a different location as Europe, etc.

I believe there has been a discussion about verisimilitude and the periodic table somewhere...

I personally think that it is possible to achieve history in a similar form to the Real-World, ex. Our Europe would be somewhere else, or there would be some other dominant soft drink.
Yes I do agree that small details will be a bit different from the real world, but OGF is not necessarily a completely different world building project, just a mapping project. The wiki really only exists to describe mapping and a few other things past that.

I don't know how to word this better,
Zekiel

Religious Sites - Is it Taboo? 2 months ago

Okay, understood. I will refrain from doing that then. Thanks for the correction.

Is there an OGF Canada? 3 months ago

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

Mapper's Challenge #23 — September 2018 — Back to School 3 months ago

https://opengeofiction.net/#map=19/-17.53922/22.28363

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.

I had resolved to linking it to another upload source.

I still cannot upload an ogg file though without getting an error code like stated above.

Deletion? 3 months 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 4 months 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...

Thanks,

My new islands 4 months 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? 4 months 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? 4 months 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 4 months 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 4 months 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,
Zekiel

New Country 4 months 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.

Thanks,
Zekiel

Question about making large changes to the map. 4 months 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.
