Looks not so bad so far…

This is above average already… I guess you can look at other better examples to improve…

It looks very good. I just recommend renaming the nearby town of San Jose to something else because of this.

This looks really good!

@iiEarth - there’s not really any need to rename the town, just because a place exists in the real world doesn’t mean that no places with the same name could exist in OGF - especially with a name as generic as “San Jose”. Just looking at the amount of places in the real world named San Jose, I think it’d be more unlikely that there weren’t a place with that name than that there is one.

Well, regarding the name of the town, I know that there are many cities with that name, I wasn’t going to change it, but to avoid that, I changed the name anyway, thanks for your comment

@Taka,

I agree that there may be many cities and towns in the real world named ‘San Jose,’ but, putting emphasis, the real world. It would be normal if somebody in OGF just named a city which somebody else also named (say they have the same colonial roots, et cetera), but that’s like naming a place ‘Amazonas’ just because many places in the real world are named so. If it were a small town, then it would be fine, but San Jose has a population of around a million.

I understand it but my country is based on Spanish and I think that San Jose would be a common name for a town, in fact I did not even know about the existence of San Jose until you named it good regarding the likelihood I think it is very difficult to put a name to a city and that this does not exist in real life, but it does not matter and change the name

Well - US-towns like Phönix, Sante Fe, Las Vegas or San Jose or Charlotte or Georgetown may are well known places for US-inhabitants - nevertheless this names are very common names, which may be appear on other places. The same for names of landscapes like “Nevada”, “Colorado” or “Georgia”, “Carolina”, “Virginia”, “Florida” - all very common names. It is not realistic, that such “all-world-names” appears only once.

Your farms look great. Better than most of what you see around the OGF world.

Also, lol @ the idea that San Jose can’t be used as a name because there’s a large San Jose in the real world. Better not use Main Street either, I guess.

As others have said San Jose is actually fine. Joselin who?
