Space Center?

Posted by eleinads on 20 November 2018 in English (English)

I have to ask a question of general interest.

Are you able to tell me which and how many are the space centers in OGF? By "spatial centers" I mean those of great dimensions and global interest like, in RW, the Kennedy Space Center (Florida), Bayqoñyr (Kazakhstan), Kourou (Guyana) and Jiquan (China).

I ask this because my intention is to insert one in the map of the Republic of Gardensa. This is also because it is a territory suitable for this, because of its tropic-equatorial position.

The candidate place is in the eastern flat land between the Carminio Lake, the Western Rain Forest and the sea, here. Obvioustly I can modify the nearest towns and infrastructures.

However, before mapping it, I have to involve all you, because a launch base is not just for one country and, for reasons of real likelihood, there must not be too many in OGF. If there were already several, I would not put mine.

Moreover, since the Republic of Gardensa is small (even if it has a large city, Giliarca), it is clear that it would be a base that hosts space launches on behalf of other countries (this would be very important for the budget of the Republic of Gardensa).

So, short question: how many (and which) space centers or launch bases are already present in OGF? If I put one in Gardensa, it would alter some balance?

Thank you!

I'd love to help you, but as I am more or less new here, I don't know exactly about space stations etc.

If experienced people tell you that is OK to build it, please count with my country (Liria) that isn't too far of your republic.

Talking about your country, I'm in love with it. the city of Giliarca is HUGE and has a lot of details, congratulations!

There are no space stations in OGF. Period.

Don't believe everything the dictators say

In terms of where you might map a space centre - the OGF world has room for more, no doubt, and the east coast of your country looks a good location.

Ahem Spice stations does not equal to Space Stations sire Udi. (Later I will vapourise you for contridiciting the Briarmacks)

Actually it is also possible for Antigo to have a space programme. There is some space to launch some satellites along with some nuclear weapons (ballistic missiles to Commonia, Khaiwoon and even to Mecyna)

There's a few of them scattered around the place - searching for "space" in the wiki will give you some links. The first one that comes to mind is the Commonwealth Space Centre (wiki link), because it's mine - it's the base of operations for the Ingerish Commonwealth's space and rocket programme, although commercial launches have been taking place since 1992 (Turnsole80 and I are working on updating it all). The FSA will probably have one at some point, too.

Thank you all. Given your considerations, I thought I could map the space center: it's ready.
