Hello!

Posted by realTomHolland on 22 May 2020 in English (English)

Hi! Im a fairly new user. I have already acquired my first country, Marg├╝ela.

I would like for someone to take a look at my first two cities (Catalina and Tarifa) and give a commentary or tips on how to map on them.

I would also like to ask if there is a way to know who made specific countries, because I want to contact several people around the gulf my country is located in.

Another thing I have in mind is if there is any way to make the editing map any bigger, since it only lets you edit at around -400m scale. This would be to build highways.

Thanks for any feedback! -Tom

The Overview map, found on the wiki will show you the owners of your surrounding territories. Just click on the one you want to know the owner of and it will show you. If you want to edit at large scales, I would recommend using JOSM.

Also, you can use the inspect tool (? button on the right of the map) and click on a way within the neighbouring country to see who edited it. In owned territories, this tend to be the owner of the territory.

To edit a larger part of the map, use JOSM, which also comes with convenient tools such as angle snapping and circle drawing.

Now to suggestions:

  • South of Catalina, this residential neighbourhood seems to have problems: You shouldn't use straight corners for streets (it looks like a maze), and you want to keep at least 50m distance between streets. You can refer to Samunta, Gobrassanya for a beachside residential area.
  • You should use full names for streets at all times (e.g. you need to add "Calle" prefix at all times).
  • Roads lack curves. Add some decorations. Also JOSM could help.

Layout seems good, although I can't comment much without buildings... I'd say you're on your way to success. Enjoy!

May it be that your cliffs show in the wrong direction? Correction is easy: only change the direction of the way.

@austinhuang in Argentina they dont include Calle, look at Argentinean cities. The user is Argentinean and possibly mirrors that.

I agree with austinhuang. I also propose to change names:

  • Catalina to Santa Catalina (a proper name like that looks weird)
  • Tarifa: it already exists in my country and it's a wellknown place because it's the southern city in mailand Spain.

Everyone here have made great points. Another way you can see who owns a certain territory is to go to the Overview Map on the wiki. Overview Map
