Anyone know why JOSM freezes whenever I open a new layer?

Posted by plainoldbread on 20 February 2022 in English (English).

I’m currently having issues with this, I wanna know if anyone can help. I’m using the openwebstart/.jnlp version at the moment. I’ve switched to the java version and had the same problem.

Build your business in Fayette

Posted by plainoldbread on 21 March 2021 in English (English).

Attention new users: as the OGF wiki isn’t working, please read here for important site information. Thank you!!

I am calling any mappers that are exceptionally good at making buildings and can make a company building in the downtown area of Fayette, or build condos in Elson & York.

How do I participate?

DM me on OGF or Discord (I respond faster on Discord) where my username is Ezo UpNorthCanadaTV#0004

You will be allowed to choose where you’d like to place your building (Condos will be in Elson & York) What business it is, and how tall it would be. I don’t want Burj Khalifa heights due to this city being based off of Toronto. I’d recommend researching on how tall buildings are in Toronto to relate that to Fayette’s buildings.

If you think of mapping a small convenience store or a small market for your country (For example how IRL Toronto has Jamaican supermarkets dotted across Downtown & North York, you can draw inspiration from those places for your business). I would allow this however, still be realistic with how they’re mapped.

If you plan to map a building for media companies, please include it as an FSA franchise when the wiki works again. With regional businesses (Such as markets that aren’t included as a national chain) are usually not considered a franchise.

How Would most of these areas would work

  • York - Semi Urban/Semi Suburban
  • Elson - Based off of North York, It is a suburban area that has higher density condos and such, with many modern amenities like North York does IRL.
  • Downtown - This area is self explanatory, although it is mostly urban, many places are much older in architecture and how they were planned, so you might have to make sure it fits the theme of the neighborhood

If interested private message me on Opengeofiction or send a Discord DM Ezo UpNorthCanadaTV#0004 .

How do I invite people to OGF without them randomly mapping somewhere?

Posted by plainoldbread on 27 March 2020 in English (English).

I have invited 1 person this month and they’ve edited randomly even though I told them to edit in the blue nations in OGF: Territories, I want to know how to introduce people to OGF without them vandalizing a country as soon as they join.

Tiles not loading.

Posted by plainoldbread on 10 January 2020 in English (English).

I’ve seen something weird go on with the site. I can’t load any of the tiles, which is a big issue because I wanted to work on my OGF territory. I know some people in the unofficial discord having problems with this, but nobody has reported on the user diaries. I hope this gets fixed somehow, because people need to see the OGF map.


FSA question.

Posted by plainoldbread on 30 June 2019 in English (English).

How would FSA overseas territories work? The USA has plenty of them and the FSA could have one.

I just mapped something and it hasn't shown up.

I just mapped something here and it hasn’t shown up.

I am soo confused why it wont render

So what landuse is Recreational complexes under?

Posted by plainoldbread on 6 June 2019 in English (English).

I looked at some in my city and one of them is marked under commercial and the other one isn’t. I’m quite confused which landuse fits with a Recreational Complex.

Where is a good place to put an OGF Canada?

Posted by plainoldbread on 28 April 2019 in English (English).

I want to make an OGF Canada which has the same terrain as Canada (Western Cordillera/Rockies, Canadian Shield, I don’t need arctic lands, Appalacia) Canadian Landoforms I am hoping to find a place suitable for this

FSA Blue Nation.

Posted by plainoldbread on 19 April 2019 in English (English).

A blue nation in the FSA would be great for new mappers who come from the United States to map out their cities before they get a nation. It would make the cancerous mapping go to someplace more suitable for it. It is a great place to start mapping if someone loves to place highways everywhere. Plus it would be more realistic considering the FSA is the OGF equivalent of the United States.

OGF tutorials for all users to learn about how to do stuff on ogf

Posted by plainoldbread on 16 March 2019 in English (English).

Maybe like a video tutorial, showing how to make a town, city, hill, mountain, or other things. It would make sense because most of the new mappers don’t usually read the wiki or apply any of the tips to their mapping, like I also did when I started out mapping, and probably still do. If we got a bunch of video tutorials on it it would actually make the users see the mapping style the person in the video uses to make realistic things.

I don’t really know if this would be a possibility, but it will be cool if it was

I'm planning on making a japanese style country

Posted by plainoldbread on 15 March 2019 in English (English).

I’m planning on naming it the Lia Republic after a tranditional lianese flower that is a status symbol to long lasting happiness. I’ve created a Lianese language on Conworkshop here I’ve been looking at Orano for a bit and seeing what territory there would fit the lia republic.

Found a part in North Uletha that has a lot of landuse things

Posted by plainoldbread on 14 March 2019 in English (English).

Found this. I’m sure the admins were doing this at the beginning of ogf then forgot it

Back to user diaries.

Posted by plainoldbread on 16 February 2019 in English (English).

I’m finally back to this again, after me leaving and coming back to finish stuff in my territory.

Decided to take in more inspiration from my neighbors and real life. I have so far made enough highways for one time.

I want to ask for more help mapping like homes and farms and stuff.

Hey Everyone!

Posted by plainoldbread on 3 January 2019 in English (English).

I’m back right now, and I feel like I can continue the rest of Arlington because I want it to be as big as Ottawa is. The thing about Ottawa is that it’s at 900K population and Arlington is at 1M, so I would need to at least make it a little bit bigger.

There's a website I found long before like months ago that is kinda like OGF

Posted by plainoldbread on 17 October 2018 in English (English).

The entire site lets you pick a territory and write about it. It’s basically PlanetWorkShop, a site owned by ConWorkShop. You can add your languages there and stuff. They let you make like unlimited countries but they will automatically not be on the global map.

Dropped the link if anyone’s interested. You could probably fit some of your OGF languages in there.

What kind of road lines your have in your OGF country?

Posted by plainoldbread on 3 October 2018 in English (English).

Planoria has white lines and median lines are thicker than the other lines. If there is a concrete median on a city avenue for example, there are no road lines, but on neighborhood roads (with sidewalks) there is only a median line.

Is there an OGF Canada?

Posted by plainoldbread on 24 September 2018 in English (English).

As much as I call Planoria the OGF Canada, what other countries in OGF are like canada?

What would an OGF Pangea look like?

Posted by plainoldbread on 16 September 2018 in English (English).

Okay, so i’m extremely curious about the ogf’s world’s history, and not a lot is written about the days before humans. What roamed the OGF world? What did it look like? I have one map i made of what i think the OGF pangea would look like OGF Pangea

Detailing is the the craziest part of detailing an OGF map for me

Posted by plainoldbread on 12 September 2018 in English (English).

I just started detailing around the borders and my fingers hurt from putting down nodes. Even if I wanted to place like a bunch of towns, it’ll still be a lot of work. Not sure if it’s the same for others, but it really makes my hands tired.

Where have my neighbors been?

Posted by plainoldbread on 9 September 2018 in English (English).

Tyski and Roliqua haven’t mapped since 2017 I think. I’m not sure if theyre gonna come back on.
