New waterway connection from the Vinn Sea to the ocean

Posted by joschi81 on 5 September 2020 in English (English)

Hi all,

some of you may have noticed that there is a new natural waterway connection between the ocean and the Vinn Sea through the north-western part of Kalm. Ūdilugbulgidħū asked me (already in September last year) if I would agree to create such a connection as a result of discussions regarding the "logic" of the OGF history in this part of our world.

I completely agreed to his arguments. And I liked the idea, also because it makes the geography not only of this part of Kalm but also of western Uletha even more interesting and inspiring in my point of view.

So I sketched a first version (directly in OGF) and even a second and a third one (as a constant progress, not as separate alternatives). However, I suffer from a massive lack of time for being active in OGF (my OGF time of past days is now mostly family time).

So: Yes, there is and "always" will be such a waterway connection and you can include this fact in wiki articles where it seems relevant. You can add shipping lines using it if you want. (Don't worry: I will correct/move them once I change the layout of the waterway connection in case they don't fit anymore.)

But the current layout is not the final one. There will, for example, be a new waterway connection between Ernleben and Woltershafen/Porto João (which I design in coordination with Andy, of course), turning the peninsula of Kettholm into an island.

Sorry for this unfinished project with great importance. I will continue as soon as possible.

Happy mapping!
Johannes

I was delighted to see this waterway. The Vinn Sea was very isolated with only a long, northern, passage out to the ocean. Thank you!

Thanks for your positive comments! Due to another issue I decided to continue mapping within the Kalm/Lentia border region, but I will return to the new "Vinnic Passage" soon.
