Xsegunis is currently marked as reserved - it's not a lost country. Plan is to maintain a indigenous Amerindian theme, blending into neighbouring provinces of Ardencia/AR045 with same culture.

Scale Concerns about 1 month ago

There are two standard ways to address this. 1: use the measurement functionality in the editor to check your sizes (iD and JOSM have different ways to do this - check docs); use the OGF scale helper to compare your work with a real-world location.

I must change the configuration of Adalia? about 2 months ago

I'd prefer Castellanese in the entire territory.

Alright who flooded Archanta 2 months ago

Sometimes things "get stuck" and additional work needs to be done, in addition to the actual coastline fix. Thanks to Alessa for doing that.

Throwing sand in folks eyes really doesn't help with these issues. People are aware the coastline is broken, and there is an automated system reporting it. Just understand that those with the skills to fix it will be working at it when they have the time.

Biggest help everyone can offer, is to not mess up the coastline in the first place.

In terms of Port Cameron... 3 months ago

I've no fixed opinion on that, I don't see anything really wrong with the original town, just that it could do with realistic detailing. More than a grid.

The airport to the NW should go. The railway branch is totally unrealistic. But these are probably later additions.

In terms of Port Cameron... 3 months ago

If you don't want feedback, don't post on the user diaries. I believe the only other feedback I've given you was on the massive bridge. You seemingly took on board the general feedback. As a long-term Gobrassanya editor I've a lot of experience tidying up ill considered edits, ones which distracted from the goal of realism. As Archanta admin I see even more.

Have you read https://wiki.opengeofiction.net/wiki/index.php/OGF:Gobrassanya ?

Think Asian with European colonisation. Don't think Roman runes.

In terms of Port Cameron... 3 months ago

In editing the blue territories you should keep in mind the theme, culture and language - Gobrassanya isn't Mediterranean Europe.

I'm opening my country for all mappers 4 months ago

"Just a note - we're actually a bit concerned people are splitting territories too finely"

And you are, with 24 edits, concerned. That's good. Sorry, not you - "we".

I'm opening my country for all mappers 4 months ago

As regional admin I have given you significant feedback, along with exploring alternative ways & territories for you to improve your mapping.

You will not be opening up this territory to general, or collaborative, mapping by other users.

Proposal: Mississauga-Bayview Bridge 4 months ago

Thanks.

New users should contact specific users via messages, not everyone using User Diaries.

Where a user is making high quality, considered mapping in a blue/purple territory then they can get a wiki account, but limited to collaboration use.

Proposal: Mississauga-Bayview Bridge 4 months ago

austinhuang, please discuss this at OGF:Gobras City, not the User Diaries, thanks.

(comment: Gobras City isn't lacking in the motorways, the Plantation is a conscious barrier to that)

More generally, if somebody wants to "improve" something created by another user then check the edit history for the relation/way/node and contact the relevant editors by message in the first instance. Also, there are plenty area that need detailing, without stepping on toes.

OGF:Gobras City is the home for Gobras City collaboration. I know that's tricky when users without territory and advanced mapping are no longer generally given wiki accounts.

About Ormeo 4 months ago

They're here: https://opengeofiction.net/#map=12/18.9508/87.0383

Rather than working in existing mapping - wondering what to do about something somebody else has created - how about some high quality new mapping?

Northern Borders of Commonia/User Diary searching 4 months ago

It isn't the boundary ways. It is a manual update on the server. It is low priority.

Are you wanting people to explain how to use Google for you? While there are some useful past posts on the User Diaries, in whole they should be read with caution, as they are typically from the less experienced OGF users.

(add "site:opengeofiction.net" to your search query)

Waterfront City 4 months ago

Unfortunately, like the the city to the immediate south, it is incongruous with the island.

On the display... This is where Fitlers in JOSM get very useful.
