So, that's the plan! Great.

Hello! So, it appears that we have a forum now! Erm...?

Can someone give me feedback at this plan for rebuilding of the new and more realistic Shilesia? Anyone? The color coding is pretty obvious, so I'm not going to explain it.

"The color coding is pretty obvious, so I'm not going to explain it." While you were writing this, you could have explained it instead. A link with coordinates is also helpful.

According to this tutorial (http://wiki.opengeofiction.net/wiki/index.php/OGF:Making_realistic_countries) you may remove all colours from your map except white, magenta and cyan. Or you could add some more colours: for mountain ranges, plains, forests etc.

I know that highways and highway junctions are fun. But a good plan can do without, or at least show much more than that.

The mountain ranges and forests are already planned and laid down on the actual OGF map, they need to be upgraded a bit but they are good enough so they can stay - I'm not a newbie who doesn't understand the concept of "nature before infrastructure", the rivers are on the map. This is mainly a plan for population distribution, localisation of major cities and on how to connect them without going bankrupt. It's a densely populated area in the middle of the Western Uletha.

Color coding: Light blue - rivers, coastline Dark blue - highway Green - expressway Dark orange - national roads Pink - borders

For me there are too lot high class roads. I would do at least one motorway and downgrade the second to a trunk. The trunk roads should be rather removed, eventually except for that from Siemianowice through Czechowice to Zaborze.

The thing is - those main roads have a purpose. Behind the borders there are huge cities - Kirchenburg in the north, Berreau and Hanviller in the north-east, Galmosen in the south and Solsburg in the east. I assume that there is a lot of international traffic as the area is really densely populated. There aren't many trunk roads outside of urban ring-roads, so I don't really know what do you want to cut. The bit south from Czechowice could go away indeed, because there isn't a big population center in the near proximity. Note that not all cities and towns are yet placed.

Well, I suggested you removing this motorways because they have no continuation in neighbouring countrieo so there is no purpose to have them, because they will not create a functional road system in the region. Especially it is visible on Utterland - Szlunsk border but rather not the only here.

That's not a problem, as I can ask my neighboors to extend the connection. This is how the trunk road between Ligota and Blanasnik came into existence earlier, and the southwestern railway connection to Utterland. I also have permission to edit in Vinnmark so that border isn't a problem as well.
