Anyone know whats up with that?
Does anyone have problems deleting or editing existing stuff? Both in iD and Potlach I can't delete or e.g. change the size or form of structures... I can add new things though... O.o
Hello fellow people, Is there anything comparable to the ,,Seven Wonders of the World'' or the modern wonders? Just asking out of interest, that could be interesting to come up with. Happy Mapping kingfries
Antarephia is once again flooded.....
Just a small, but important question: Does the OGF earth still rotate in the same direction? I should right? I mean that would only unnecessarily complicate everything. So the sun rises in the east and goes down in the west? Thanks for answers
Hello my fellow OGF-ers, I've got several things to say today, so I'm just gonna work them off in a list.
1.) As some of you may have read already I'm planning to have my country be somewhat 1950s/ early 1960s retro like. Following this I received some feedback from you that it should be guided by a proper backstory . Following a lot of evenings of thinking (and diet coke) I came to conclusion to have it be like this: Up to the late 40s everything goes its normal path down. After a possible war/threat scenario, Pasalia even considers using the nuclear weapons it build. This would then lead to a 'cold war' situation and, even more important, a large uproar around the world. This again would lead to some countries setting up anti-pasalia rallies which would somewhat isolate it culturally from the outside. Now the 50s thing comes into play which would cause the country to stay in that certain way for longer than usual, with only slowly making progress. After the whole thing cooling down in the late 60s/70s maybe (?), it starts becoming more modernized, but meanwhile the population has found the way everything so nice they choose to keep many aspects of it. Now that is where someonee of you could get the big role: First of all like always your feedback, opinions and nagging is always appreciated :p Second: Anyone of you wanting to be a part of this as the big bad nation?
Aside from that: I'm currently also busy with creating 'Futuria City' which is a planned city build in the 50s,60s and possibly into the 70s even. Imagine it a bit as a mix between real Brasilia and La Defense in Paris. Any companies wanting to have a office in a cosy skycraper with added parking garage? Currently looking to fill up the downtown area.
Sooo...what do you guys think,hm?
Anyone else finding ogf wiki offline? It said something about the server being offline.
Hello everyone hope you had a nice day. So lately I've been making some progress on Pasalia but always thought there must be something I'm missing. Turns out I think I'm lacking a general concept for it so far. Now, after some hours of thinking about that, I further realised to have created a small problem (that turned out to help my idea) . Sooo... I first started mapping in german but then changed to english, so i then came up with the idea of making my country bi-lingual (think real life the french speaking part of canada) but here it would be my capital region speaking german and the rest Ingerish. Any of you got any tips or opinions on that? Second and maybe the most interesting thought I had so far. One thing I can tell is that I'm really having some 'nostalgia' for 1950s north america (aka the US). Now I was thinking how it would be possible to design a modern day 2016 country that is culturally still somewhat stuck in the 1950s (E.g: obviously having modern day tech but driving 50s-design influenced cars and being a bit living their culture, without all the racism, discrimination and generell weirdness and having modern day buildings but with a bit of ''googie-architecture', google it if you want to know) So after this oddly long post What are your thoughts on this, admittedly strange, idea? Any thoughts or ideas or critiscm? greetings, kingfries (who still wonders how he came up with this )
Hi everyone, I was thinking about some important historical dates for my country Pasalia and one of them is the launch of the first satellite. Now I was asking myself how this whole matter of Rocket Launches is supposed to be handled. Would be great to hear from others if they intend on having something like that or if there are any international agreements on this matter?
