What to do with Sky Point?

Posted by Volcanizion on 1 November 2019 in English (English)

Right now, the "theme park" Sky Point is just a huge oversized chunk of park with one or two rides in Southeast Gobras City. Is it a good idea to rebuild and resize the entire park? The hotel area seems to be fine though.

Can give a map link?

Funrides in OGF are slightly rare. I hope peopl can collaborate on this though.

No offense, but please do not make so many diary entries- it clogs it up, and it is mostly for important updates and/or mapping suggestions/showcase.

How about, rather than arriving in the world and deciding the whole place needs fixing, you find some empty space and do a bit of your own building first to showcase what you can do? It might not be entirely the case but your diary entries would suggest the first thing you want to do is edit everyone else's work. Good old fashioned manners dictate you don't take up lodgings in someone's house and immediately rearrange their furniture.

@donnamaw I don't see this suggestion as a violation of good manners. After all, Gobras City is a collaborative project, not anyone's property as such. Suggesting changes in a collaborative territory is way better than just making the changes without asking anyone. A theme park is a perfect place for learning collaborative mapping, it has a multitude of different kinds of small-scale units.

I see no need for total rebuild, but continuing Sky Point together and perhaps changing some things would be a good idea. A wiki talk page would be good for exchanging more detailed ideas.

@LemonKing - you are quite right of course; I think the words 'rebuild and resize the entire park' - when in fact what is there has been nicely done - triggered my overreaction. It was wrong of me to dampen enthusiasm for fear of vandalism, your more cautious words were much better pitched. @Volcanizion - apologies for my heavy-handedness.

I agree with LemonKing, as a large part of my work resides in Gobrassanya and Gobras City. After all, this is a collaborative country where any edits are free to make. This does come with responsibilities, though. To name some, it is courteous to leave a user's edits alone if they are not disruptive of others', it is respectful to give a heads up about redeveloping an area, and it is good to improve faulty, unfinished, or undefined edits within reasonable means. Sky Point does need expansion, as it has potential. Yet, it would be best to create a User:Talk page about Sky Point to see if maybe other parks should be created, the current Sky Point park should be expanded, etc. It really is up to you, the user, as no one is stopping you from developing the area. But, it is good to confirm with local mappers and mods/admins to plan out what comes next.

But y'all didn't realize new users can't edit in wiki, so I guess it's okay to ask in user diaries... Don't attack him for trying to fit in though
