WEBSITE IS FINALLY HTTPS!!!

Posted by austinhuang on 3 June 2018 in English (English)

I just feel like this is pretty important for the security of all users. C'est tout.

Though, why is the certificate issued on March 30, yet the implementation is so late?

Happy St. Patrick's Day! But for OGF...

Posted by austinhuang on 18 March 2018 in English (English)

The places that St. Patrick's Day is observed (Or holds St. Patrick's Day Parade) does not necessarily have a significant Irish ethnicity population. So I wonder that are there any ethnical holidays that are observed through many parts of the world, regardless of the ethnical concentration?

To be honest, there are few dates for the people on the OGF world to celebrate. I think maybe we should create a Google Calendar to mark all these days?

Need advice on drawing large forests

Posted by austinhuang on 28 February 2018 in English (English)

Map

I feel like it's a bit featureless, but I don't want to be super dense as in this. Is this sketch good? How should I draw curves? Should I cut the forest into several parts? Am I integrated enough with my neighbour?

No stress. I'm not in a hurry.

New international organization for regulating broadcasting call signs?

Posted by austinhuang on 24 February 2018 in English (English)

I started a draft organization called IBA and I collected all the existing TV/Radio call signs. I'm looking forward to establish a standard in call signs of various stations. Though this is not mapping-related, call sign should be taken into consideration when naming HQ buildings for stations.

If a new organization is too much, I might merge it into AN-affiliated ITA.

Any suggestions?

CONTINENT FLOODING! in Gobrassanya

Posted by austinhuang on 21 November 2017 in English (English)

A huge segment of coastline is removed between node 8460513 (Meeonj near Artana) and node 36886472 (Attikai Beach in northeast Gobras City), causing a flood in Uletha.

~~How to undo an edit by someone else?~~ Someone did it

Also, it looks like this guy is frequently deleting coastlines.

Something similar to E-series highways?

Posted by austinhuang on 31 August 2017 in English (English)

Hello.

I'd like to propose a highway (Probably motorway-only) network like Europe does, except spur routes. Now the problem is that lots of roads have gaps in between and it'll be hard to organize, but is it generally a good idea?

Realistic size...Need consultations!

Posted by austinhuang on 25 August 2017 in English (English)

Hello everyone / Bonjour tout le monde,

First post. I recently (not actually, it's been a week...) claimed UL032 and decided to build a capital city anew. But I'm having problems with street block sizes.

Currently, the size is 200m*250m. I know this is a bit big but is it still reasonable? Places like Ottawa have 200m*100m block size I guess.

Thanks!

Austin
