Description
This is my first attempt at making a map of South Africa. Towns start out small, and old names are used to reflect 19th century usage. Towns can be renamed in-game to reflect modern variants. Industries are concentrated around towns, and the emphasis is placed on long distance shipping. The elevation is generally flattened to avoid extreme variations. The Map Creation Tool was used in the making of this map.

This is definitely true. I have been playing this map constantly since creating it and it does cause a terrible jumble. However, I've also had the most fun of any other map trying to find creative sollutions to move things along. It might be because I'm biased though. As a sidenote I also made an error with the name of the city of Mbabane, which I named Maputo. I will be taking these lessons and comments forward into any future maps I make. One interesting and inintended effect I've noticed in this map is that the Johannesburg-Pretoria-Pietersburg area soon fuses into a megacity, which in my game (I'm at 1954) has a population of over 8000. Maseru-Bloemfontein-Kimberly is another mega city fusion. Not realistic or frame-rate friendly in the least, but certainly an enjoyable new twist to me.

Nice map! However, you have placed far too much industry immediately around Cape Town; it's surrounded and blocked off and you can't place a decently sized passenger station in or near the city. Actually this is a problem with most cities on the map; it's better to have industry placed further away from cities as they will expand and since the scale of the stations is so large. You end up with an annoying tangle otherwise.
