Territory codes in East Uletha are changing

Posted by eklas on 21 April 2020 in English (English).

Hello, East Ulethan mappers,

over the course of the next week (starting Monday, April 27th), administrative changes are going into effect in the region. Countries in East Uletha will be grouped into 16 sectors based on similarities in geography and culture, a division that will also be used for coordination of future development. Each territory will receive a new ID, as shown on the scheme below (e. g. Midistland, now UL031, becomes UL26a).

The changes require no work on your behalf – they will be carried out by me. Vegetation zones serve mostly as a recommendation to new users and nobody is forced to change their existing work. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you for the work you’re putting into this. I’m assuming you are just going to rename the existing country relations, not recreate them so we don’t have to change the ID-references?

I very much like that we now have a “climate-guide”. Kojo could have been struck worse, I imagined the western parts to be thinly populated grasslands from the very beginning (although I feared that might actually be unfeasible), and it should still be realistic to imagine a mixed-temperate-like agriculture in the Kojolese heartland between Pyingshum, Jaka and Kwaengdo, with the rivers irrigating the area; shouldn’t it?

Yes, I am only going to change the ogf:id tag (and the names of territories that are currently vacant). I’m glad that you like the proposal and I think it’s completely possible to use central Kojo as farmland – I imagine it would get enough precipitation.

I like the map, nicely done.

Good to be informed that there gonna be some changes, but also that there aren’t any consequences to the users in this area, and explicitly: no changes of existing work. :-)

I can understand that people find my work on Neberly not very fitting for the location or even to less detailed after being member for over six years. But i’m afraid i’m still pleased with the (slow) progress i’m making. When i started in 2013 there was no real idea about how the ‘world’ as a whole, let alone climate zones. I had thought (or hoped) Neberly would be in a more temperate climate and worked from there. Now i too see that probably it isn’t really fitting, but being stubborn and wanting to hold on to my original plan…i’m afraid you’re all stuck with me.

I’m excited to see these changes! One small detail is that I actually situated Eshemi in a wide valley, where cold, moist air from the sea up north could funnel through and generate a more temperate climate. Maybe if there was a database for East Ulethan mappers to submit geographical data, such as mountains, rivers, and rough wind patterns, we could get a full-on climate map of the region!

Zone 21-22 here. I totally agree with this proposition ! Great job Eklas. In fact it corresponds to my biomes perfectly.

@antoon: No problem, your country has quite a lot of forests, so it can be taiga forest with a population who could have settled along the rivers for practical reasons like river boat traffic. As for why some big cities like Satbridge exist in such remote places… well mining could be a reason.

Uletha is becoming greatly mapped, and I look forward to the opening of these new territories like UL099 (new 19). The new job done in Pretannia and the Mediterranean sea in the west looks promising too ! Although I would imagine a canal, popping up between St. Richardus and Port Emporia area, that would justify the development and the wealth of this area, because otherwise I suppose the Port Emporia sea is rather closed, and one does not simply cross the ice pack in the north to reach it by boat. I know it’s not related to Eastern Uletha, but that was just my 2 cents on this issue :-)

As I’m quite active here, if you need help to set things up, don’t hesitate to send a message.

Thank you for your comments everyone! The changes are now done.

I’m probably late to respond, but I like the new map and the new IDs, and they’re well done.

I noticed that almost every part of Belphenia is in the seasonal wet climate. The extreme northwestern part of Belphenia on the other hand, is now in the mixed temperate climate.

Again, the map looks well drawn, and great job.
