Holdwell, suburb of Wyndham

Posted by Yuanls on 3 September 2020 in English (English)

An entry like this is better suited as an entry for my (extremely sporadic) bliki, but the OGF wiki has been a game of roulette for me in recent days. Half the time it loads after taking about three minutes, or more. The rest of the time, it doesn't load at all. So here's the general just of Holdwell, in a diary entry.

Holdwell is economically above-average urbanised suburb of Glaster's capital, Wyndham. It hosts a quite pleasant and well-developed town centre, and a railway station with regional services and also some national services. The waterfront has seen redevelopment as industry has shifted further north and east, away from the town.

South of the town centre there is the Holdwell Sanitorium, an area currently being redeveloped into student accommodation. On the other side of National Way lie the Westriver Estates, a classic, brutalist-era housing complex.

In the north you find more monotonous, but more pleasant suburbs, along with Holdwell and Sanford station, the second railway station in the area. Further north is the yet-unmapped locality of Sanford. Sanford Southern Dock is the southernmost point of industry on the west bank of the River Holder.

Any comments on the area, or on the general structure of Wyndham are appreciated! I'm particularly interested at this early stage, because the general groundwork has been laid out, but no detailed mapping has taken place yet. This way it's a lot easier to fix large-scale structural problems.

Happy mapping!

I love it! The way you have managed to plan about your city into different sorts of classes is great because of course we need to show this in a capitalist country.

I'm definitely getting British vibes off of your mapping, as a Londoner myself, I'm quite impressed at the way you've done it, do correct me if it's not based on a British style of mapping haha!

Thanks for your responses guys!

@KTheBritMC It's indeed British style. I do focus on making sure urban environments are characterised well when I map. In reality I think it's quite more nuanced but there's only so much information you can convey on a map. I'm more of a 'show, not tell' kind of person.
