Request: Unduk lakes & Canamo connection


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello, I would like to canonise the Unduk lakes (pictured below) and a visible widening of the strait conecting them to the Canamo sea (@Prymont has said in the discord that they aren't opposed to this)

 

The Unduk lakes (could you meassure them please) :

The strait mentioned with a suggestion from me, also if you're able to slightly widen the strait neer the port of Ysta in Mokhavia that would be apriciated:

Hello @Mokhavia. Right now all these lakes are already connected. Right now these are fresh-water lakes flowing out into the lower sea. I understand you want to widen the existing connections by a few pixels. Could you take some time to explain why exactly?

hello, so originally i was under the impression that these were actually inland seas with a strait conecting (controlled by prymont) to the canamo sea, but then when i was looking deeping into it i found out they are freshwater lakes which was problematic as i am rying to build a more ocean conected salt water biosphere and culture*, mainly the animal life present that would effect culture too, you can see in my wiki page, i have a list of more renouned species found in the nation (still working on the logistics of some of them), even if they were made into salt water lakes it would still be problematic for species of marine life that wouldnt be found there naturally.

The carthographer (Metztlitlaca) and i also talked a bit about it in discord and they have put out a new version with them being inland seas conected to the Canamo sea.

I see no issue so as long as descriptive and explanatory reason can be given to the why question.

Also from what i am reading between the lines here is that this is another way from this nation to get some access to the sea, which he has tried one time to my knowledge to do so. So I am presented with one question for you @Mokhavia , If this access or this expansion of the inland river (currently) is converted into a strait how would this benefit your country? Also, would there be any downside to this?

In my opinion I would suggest it to stay a Fresh Water domain, for instance say there is a water shortage in your country and these lakes would provide a huge amount of source of Fresh Water that could be filtered and rationally dispensed across the nation., It would cost less to filter fresh water than it would say salt water. Plus look at it in another view, you could start up a Bottle Water Company that could become a global producer of filtered bottle water which in my mind would be a need.

Overall, if the Admin Team approves of the idea to widen the river to a strait then I am for this as it would be interesting to see how it influences the country and ecosystem.

No real benefits to my nation except the fauna ill receave (for example someone suggested me having beluga whales which could of been a food for my ppl, im still looking in the logistics of fauna migration but ive embrased that idea), the downsaids are the water stuffs you mentioned no longer being options, but im not tryna do this for any real benefit, but as ive said before for the biological pluses to the nation and culture. Before this, i tought that there was a strait which turns out to have actually been a river, so eh.

Could it not have been a navigable river in the first place?

Does that necessitate the change to a strait on the map? I've always assumed that the river that marks the border between MH and me is navigable up fairly far.

it would of been, but im doing this for the biological factor (i just talked about this to ahrana so you could check that message instead of me repeating myself)

I mean, it doesn't especially matter and I've no reason to stick my oar in.

It could well be a mile or so wide and still be just be represented as it is on the map.

@Metztlitlaca @Tagmatium Rules @Ahrana ok so, im fine with the river/strait remaning like that on the map, but i would like the lakes to become inland seas for the reasons ive mentioned (i.e. biology and culture) the strait being enlargened to vissibility on the map would rly only help with species traveling through it, which is why i asked for it, just to be a bit more realistic

I am fine with the lakes becoming in-land seas, but the river should stay the same it can be assumed that it is in fact a strait instead of actually making the map reflect that. When you look at the canals that have been built and some that are in process they resemble a river but is labeled and assumed as a canal to which in my mind we can just assume that here. Or if you desire we can call it whatever name you wish to call it and add the word strait to it.

I apologise for my slow reply.

As I said above, I've no real reason to stick my oar in.

I was just wondering whether a solution could be found without changing the map at all.

i mean, it'd still need to be changed to sea instead of lake, so not really, plus the carthographer already made a draft with a visible strait so might as well use it, if the neighbors are cool with it

      Keep in mind that I’m flexible with like all of this so if some things aren’t available or aren’t exactly as specified in the application I’m glad to accommodate

      Nation in Eurth: Utogo
      Flag:
       
      Capital name: Buokagio
      Capital location: On the northern coast; Wodaa is also coastal and Bogimé is on a river in the north. Another fairly large city exists in central Utogo, Wawisoimpi, which would preferably be on a river in that area, but again I am happy to accommodate
      Stats Chosen: Pop 2 - GDP/C 0 - Area 2
      Factbook/iiwiki link: In lieu of a (forthcoming) factbook, I present to you my vision statement
      Culture: Utogoan areal cultures are a mixture of Papuan (areal, of course) and West African (also areal, of course) inspirations. I don’t have many specifics at the moment (they are also forthcoming), so if you were a real stickler about cultural areas you could really put me near either of those given they exist on the map.
      Climate: Tropical monsoon (Am) or tropical rainforest (Aw) in the south, transitioning into tropical savanna (Af) as you go north (near the center), and subtropical dry forest/miombo (BSh) in the north. Basically, hot and mostly wet. I imagine a fair amount of rivers and mountains as well, but those don’t matter to me as much as the general climate.
      History: I’ll keep it very brief and adapt it from my vision statement -  First settled approximately 14,000 years ago by Pre-Proto-Utogoan-speaking peoples practicing agriculture and village settlement; territory of present-day Utogo was also likely contacted by other groups in her area; antiquity consisted mostly of trade networks and wars between several Utogoan-speaking ethnic confederations; colonized by a foreign power at some point.
      Desired Location: Surprise me
       
    • By Walneria
      Nation in Eurth: Walneria
      Flag: 
      Capital name: Tyrámen
      Capital location: Riverside city (on the map I provided ideally on one of the three rivers in the middle of the country)
      Stats Chosen: Viz my vision statement
      Factbook/iiwiki link: https://iiwiki.us/wiki/Walneria (Note: I hope to fill in the lore after I get the location, because I do not want to be vague)
      Culture: Walnerian (Germanic with very strong historical Slavic influence)
      Climate: Temperate or Subtropical. ideally Central European, or Balkan
      History: Historically an independent kingdom. lost its independence in 1640's. In 1820's, local uprising lead by the nobility ensures independence, but local stagnation and problems with dictatorial regimes start the 1880's revolution, which brings the nation close to being broken apart. In 1899, the conflict is conlcuded by establishment of the Confederacy of Walneria. In 1920's, the economy boom provided enough money for the country to quickly develop, even starting defensive lines against foreign threats. 1930's (or early 1940's), the country has been invaded by a foreign authoritarian power (mentioned in my academy story), which was eventually driven out of the country, which pushed Walnerians to looks suspiciously on the wurld and rather pushing neutral and isolationist policies while arming to the teeth for just in case scenarios. Since 1899, the country is a democracy. In 1912, women were given their votes and with few notable exceptions (such as during the mentioned war), elections are held. The last major reform of the system was in 1988, when the country shifted from bicameral to unicameral system. It is a parliamentary republic with a president as a representative.
      Desired Location: 
      For lore, it would be ideal, if Walneria was located between an authoritarian Germanic country/bloc (Stedori and Velaheria play that role really well) and a democratic Slavic country/bloc (Possibly future comers?) (for interesting roleplay regarding the national identity of Walnerians).
