Collab:Federal States/Collaborative States/New Carnaby

From OpenGeofiction
Ambox currentevent.svg This page is open to discuss collaboration aspects for New Carnaby. It is a work in progress.

New Carnaby is a collaborative project within the FSA. Anyone interested in participating is free to take up a county or project by contacting Fluffr_Nuttr.

Coordination

This project is coordinated by Fluffr_Nuttr and Easky30.

Background

New Carnaby has a population of 17.6 Million and is inspired by New York and the American Northeast. Like New York, there is a stark contrast between the dense Stanton-Warwick metro and the largely rural interior.

Metro Stanton-Warwick is one of the FSA’s main metropolises, centered at the mouth of the Carnaby River (along with Warwick Island in Penquisset). Its sprawl extends down the Carnaby Valley, along the Stanton Bay and along a line to Sadikady. A few larger cities exist to the south, which became fundamentally tied to Stanton in the 20th century. Stanton itself is influenced by NYC and other northeastern cities, and the suburbia draws from the lower Hudson Valley, New Jersey and Connecticut.

The Carnaby River, which is naturally navigable as far as Yallop, has long formed an important corridor for trade. Over a period of 30 years after independence, an ambitious canal was constructed to allow ships to travel from Stanton to Lake Leighton. The canal, and later the railroads, encouraged the growth of Stanton, Waltmore, Yallop, Three Rivers, and several smaller towns along the river.

Also of note are:

  • The parallel mountain ranges which give much of the state a rural character
  • The Delenshire Islands, divided between dense Stanton suburbia and rich vacation towns
  • The Scantuck Valley, strongly influenced by the Puritan/Congressionalist dissidents who settled there

Collaborative Framework

A mapper has a few options in New Carnaby: Claiming a county, mapping in a collaborative region or working on a generalized project.

You can claim a solo county by reaching out to a coordinator through on the talk page under "getting started", through OGF private messaging or Discord. Being a claimant of a county is not like owning a territory, as the coordinator team or those working on generalized projects may make adjustments. However, a county claimant should be alerted of what specifically is being worked on.

Anyone can map in an collective county, given that they follow blue territory etiquette and adhere to the themes highlighted in the county plans. Generally, try to detail instead of deleting other people’s work. Communication with others working in the same area is key. If you're not sure what collective county is right for you, just ask on the "getting started" section of the wiki!

With permission from a coordinator, a user can work on a statewide/regional generalized project. These tasks might include working on waterways, detailing a national or state park, or providing the basis for a city’s suburbia. They are listed in the "active projects" table. In solo counties, detail beyond the purview of the project past a certain point is discouraged, so other people can contribute in the future.

Active Projects

The below table is for:

  • limited projects in/spanning across solo counties being done by non-claimants;
  • large infrastructure projects in collective counties, ex: motorways and local transit;
  • (optional) logging smaller detailing projects in collective counties

Mappers may adapt projects by placing their username in the "adopted by" column. If a mapper wants to propose a new project, they can add a new row under the appropriate section. Newly proposed projects need to be checked off by a coordinator in the "approved" column before work can start, except in the case of small scale collective county projects.

Highways
FS-14 and Hearthsbridge Motorways adjustments Reydon County, Hearthsbridge County, Ottland County FS 16 will be renumbered as FS 14 and follow a path towards Fallport-Fallsbury as agreed upon with Minimapper. In Ottland County, FS 14's path will be shifted south of Stockton and Stanton Falls to better follow local topography.FS 14 and FS 114 (formerly FS 616) will be "wrapped tighter" around the city of Hearthbridge. The Scantuck River Parkway will be updated to a motorway numbered as FS 211 west of FS 11 to provide a connection to the airport. Dorrance Turnpike will be downgraded to a trunk road and will follow a route towards Prespool instead of Divinity's Grace. New interchanges and road alignments will be mapped as necessary. The former state of Culpepper was annexed into New Carnaby so that Whateversusan's work can be preserved and elaborated on. For now the area is "reserved", with mapping only allowed within the scope of specialized projects. That said, it made sense to rearrange highways to better integrate into the greater region, etc. Crossing ways and other mistakes can be fixed and nodes can be added where deemed appropriate. Detailed areas should not be touched unless in the way of a new road alignment, in which case things should be moved around instead of deleted. Fluffr_Nuttr Yes In Progress (completed south and east of Scantuck River, except for Dorrance Turnpike)
SoCar/Squirrel Hill grid realignment and street numbering City of Stanton Align north/south roads south of Autumn River with those north of Autumn River. Renumber north/south roads with 100th Avenue/Grensard Avenue as 1st Street with roads increasing in number eastward; rename alphabetical east/west roads and north/south roads in Littletown.

City of Stanton

Instead of being divided into boroughs, Stanton is a consolidated city-county made up of 11 wards, each with several hundred thousand people and subdivided into many neighborhoods. They are not meant to be claimed individually- anyone can map throughout the city as long as they have permission (either message Fluffr_Nuttr or discuss on the talk page). But the themes of the wards can give mappers an idea of where to create what they wish. This also gives Stanton a slightly different identity than our NYC.

Stanton wards map
  • Stanton’s downtown is wealthy, though as more people work than live there, things get pretty quiet at night. Inspired heavily by Lower Manhattan, with some cues from Philadelphia.
  • Northern Stanton is somewhat of an industrial remnant, containing a large port facility and one of Stanton’s older airports.
  • South Carnaby (or SoCar) would be more of a hipster neighborhood, probably recently gentrified, while Brownstone has some gentrification and some old money.
  • Weybirton, St. Cassian, Goose Bay and Southside would have both working-class areas and projects, some attempts at developing villages within the city, and some middle-class areas.
  • West Warwick is the transition area between Stanton and Warwick, possibly reflecting Northern Queens and Nassau County.
  • The western wards will likely be more industrial and working-class, especially Astera, Perister, and Kenver. Hudson County, New Jersey could be a great source of inspiration.
