Given the fact that a notable number of users, especially newbies, have decided to come over to Antigo, I decided to write this entry to standardise the different styles of mapping so far in Antigo.
First off, urban areas, especially for towns with at least 100 000 inhabitants, are to follow in the style Soviet-style cities, for example Pyongyang, Minsk, Kiev and St. Petersburg. Smaller ones may include Magadan, Murmansk and Vladivostok (A further list can be found here). In other words, instead of small grids seen in America, you have large grids filled with rows of apartments, plazas, industrial areas near the rails etc. The towns and cities needed to be well-planned; most of the cities has been more or less destroyed in various battles between Antigoan and Pretanic forces during the war. Have tramways as well. Additional note; I see railway stations at the central area of the city/town, and industries around it, so if a rail line cuts through it, remember to build any industrial areas.
Don't forget to build monuments of the late leaders. They are - J. L. Briarmack and M. P. Briarmack. A few friendship statues may exist, such as one with the then Belphenian leader Sasuke Volkman.
The capital city is strictly off-limits for now. I prefer if you want to propose any large changes, such as the road/rail design, you do a design sketch and send the picture via PM or any other means. I know there is a lot of stuff to change in the capital, and I appreciate any efforts in doing so, but please, do not do anything drastic, yet. Send me a proposal of what you are doing as well.
Every duchy now has a specific industry, which I intend to model it after the Hunger Games. For those who is currently in a duchy, refer to this. Generally, farms and orchards up north, metals and heavy industry at the southeast, and probably light industries at the southwest (not many plans yet there though).
Some users may be in one same duchy, which I did that on purpose, especially on Imanelsotin. I want to see how users will collaborate with one another, and also focus on one duchy only for now; I rather leave the other, larger, duchies to more experienced users.
Other questions many will ask:
What are breeding camps? This is really not many will want to know, but ok, they are a form of indoctrination school for many Antigoan children, who are born and raised there. They were built to address Antigo's declining population, which has pretty much been resolved, but now it is used to monitor all Antigoans from a young age.
What is the Antigoan language? Honestly, I don't really know. While bhj867 advocate for Native American names, I feel that it is better if you can hybridise these words to German-sounding words. You can also take Arabic words as well. It can be explained by Kalmish explorers which heavily influenced the language. Honestly why I prefer German-sounding words because they have a rather harsher tone which dictators will like to speak with. However, all the roads are to still be in English.
Is Antigo still open to all? Yes, especially to newbies who are repeatedly spamming the diary entries for why isn't the admins doing anything. I also welcome experienced users, especially those from Russia, to help in the urban planning for some towns/cities.
Is Antigo open for diplomacy? Well, as I said the capital is off-limits, so I am not inviting any more embassies, but I will still be open for consulates in some towns/cities and some discussions on possible ties. At this point, I want to know if there is any communist/socialist dictator ruling in the 20th century?
