Hello, and welcome to my 5th bliki! It's been over two weeks since I wrote my last bliki, so I felt like it'd be a good time to write another one (probably should've done one earlier). I've made immense progress on Idnah and Port Vakopu, and also I've begun adding some minor details, such as shops, gas stations, etc.

Idnah progress

Loading map...

OGFmapicon.png Link It's amazing how fast time goes by as I work on Idnah and the area as a whole, and it's hard to believe it's been two full weeks already since my last bliki article..since the last bliki, I basically completed the layout of Idnah that's not suburbs. I've also completed Idnah Area International Airport, Idnah Nuclear Plant, Idnah Regional Mall (Which I completed earlier, actually), Idnah train station, etc. etc..you can zoom in on any particular areas of detail, as there's too much things I've worked on to accurately describe in here.

Port Vakopu

Some particular points of interest I've detailed includes the Zamin Heavy Manufacturing shipyards, the Gamenca Oil Refinery, and Fort Vakopu, located to the east of the container port.

Comments and Feedback

I wonder if anyone reads this..hmmmmmmm --TheHolyEpicpenguin (talk) 23:52, 14 December 2017 (CET)

I am reading this. Keep up the work!--Happy mapping and God bless, Zhenkang (talk) 11:18, 15 December 2017 (CET)

Thanks! --TheHolyEpicpenguin (talk) 22:01, 15 December 2017 (CET)

My, how things are coming together! I like a lot of what I'm seeing. I particularly like much of what you've done with the delta. Have you thought about adding marsh/mud tags to create more detail there? A few rogue trees or grasses might add a nice touch too. It would quickly move to being one of the best-looking ones on the map. — Alessa (talk) 14:43, 15 December 2017 (CET)

Thanks for the feedback! I have thought of adding those tags to the delta, though I've been busy mapping roads for the most part. I think I will soon get to doing that though. --TheHolyEpicpenguin (talk) 22:01, 15 December 2017 (CET)

I have read this too and I can say I appreciate the speed of building a new country, some things in mapping are interesting too (for example river delta) and I will be really interested in seeing it more detailed. --Rüstem Paşa Discussion 18:10, 15 December 2017 (CET)

I'll probably map more towns though before I get into too much detailing, but I hope to have mapped all major cities in a somewhat detailed level by April or May. Thanks for replying! --TheHolyEpicpenguin (talk) 22:01, 15 December 2017 (CET)

I've had mixed opinions about your mapping in the past, but I really like this new progress. Feels way more natural and realistic. Keep it up! --Eklas (talk) 21:44, 15 December 2017 (CET)

Yeah, I think I am improving somewhat. Thanks! --TheHolyEpicpenguin (talk) 22:01, 15 December 2017 (CET)

This is really good! Also one of the few examples I've seen that manage to go with the ring road style yet still have a realistic old town in the center like that. Looks great! --Ernestpcosby (talk) 22:22, 15 December 2017 (CET)

Amazing how much progress has taken place in the few weeks since I have joined and started paying close attention to this area, since I planned to take over TA021. Looking forward to getting started on mapping the area just across the border from Idnah and Vakopu. It's very encouraging to have active, talented neighbors on both sides! --Louis walker (talk) 11:58, 17 December 2017 (EST)

I'm also looking forward to working with you on the border! It will be very interesting to see the border area develop with the metropolitan area and the mountain range further west --TheHolyEpicpenguin (talk) 19:47, 17 December 2017 (CET)
