World's longest bridge?

Posted by wangi on 1 December 2016 in English (English)

The 63km of Lonowai's bridges / trestles (/ causeways?)! The existing set was recently upgraded with a new 25km bridge to Lito.

It's not feasible, is it? Sea would be far too deep.


Location: 10 Kilometer Bridge, County of Motu'u, Lonowai District (Gobrassanya)

Thanks for the recent changes, the "hamburger" menu is a big improvement on small screens.

Albedeer Uni, Gobras City

Posted by wangi on 22 November 2016 in English (English)

It's taken ages, but the first pass of the Albedeer University campus in Gobras City is complete... Next up is more shops & facilities, but that can wait a bit. And the far west of the campus...

If you know where to look there's still a fair bit of the original plan by Wal there.

Hi, looks like there's not been a successful backup since Friday (210 mb)? Everything since then is around 170 mb mark, which results in lots of nodes, but few ways when loaded into JOSM.

Is the size of the db now a real strain on the resources?

Gobras City

Posted by wangi on 19 October 2015 in English (English)

Just a reminder that the building of Gobras City is ongoing. It is the capital Gobrassanya, and everyone is welcome to join in. The wiki page at OGF:Gobras City hasn't seen as much action as the map edits - but it's still a good place for some background and questions.

Recent development has focussed on trying to fill in the gaps between the suburbs and city centre.

I use the backups and then "cut out" an area to edit using osmconvert... But it looks like the backups are stale - they're being created, but looks like changes in the last four days (or so) aren't included?

Standard map style - airports?

Posted by wangi on 31 August 2014 in English (English)

Looks like something's changed with the standard map style - airport runways and taxiways are not being shown?

Import OSM>OGF in JOSM

Posted by wangi on 29 June 2014 in English (English)

What am I missing... I've got JOSM setup per the notes in the FAQ. I can successfully download. I can successfully export the data from OSM to a .osm file and then load that into JOSM.

However after movign the data to where I want it now to be and trying to upload I get: "The OSM server '' does not know about an object you tried to read, update, or delete. Either the respective object does not exist on the server or you are using an invalid URL to access it. Please carefully check the server's address '' for typos"

Merging layers is the same.
