Dust Lake 6k

Dust Lake 6k map-set has 2 game maps...
Dust Lake 6k - no industries.
Dust Lake 6k Ind - in-game spawned industries.
Both maps have 15 towns to start the map, with long rail lines between many towns.
::extra large map sizes needs enabled before the map will load::
Best played with the Vegetation Increase mod on the no-industry version and place your own.
Some screenshots are from the building stages of the map and the towns will be numbered...all the towns have names assigned.

Well with 50 cities it would be a passenger train map only for the most part, there would be no room for industry. In my build the industry tracks and factories take more room than any passenger routes. Passenger train maps are cool, but all the AI-cars generated by gigantic cities would cause a ton of lag in late game, that's why I reduce the amount of cities in this game, in late game you just don't get the frame rate like Trainz or RailRoad Sim. In those you can build forever. Sounds like a cool passenger route map anyway.

@Davidmaracenero Thank you for doing that! I'm excited to see what it looks like... I was running into the same issue.

I was thinking about putting around 50 cities and towns just to create some commuter lines as well as some long distance rails. I will have it without industries so anyone is up to place their own ones.

By the way, thanks for giving me your permission, I'll try to have it uploaded in a few hours time so that you can have a check and tell me if you want anything to be changed, and of course that I'll mention your authorship :)

Hi Davidmaracenero, sure use the heightmap if you wish, just give it a new name mention my name would be nice. Your Spain map has a ton of cities so not sure how many more you wanted but I do have a version of this map with 25 cities on it. I backed-off several start-towns on this final version to make room for industry tracks and factory placement, long rail lines for high speed for better game performance.
On the heightmap smoothing I use either 16 or 32 bit floating point.
I also have a new map about to be published.

@Scorpion® Absolutely, I only need his permission to proceed :)

@Davidmaracenero if you make this map, can you upload it? I need a some extra city for start to ;)

Hi Lowell, you map is fantastic but I'm finding it quite hard to play from the early stages since there are too few cities and my trains take ages to reach the closest city. Can I get your permission to use your heightmap for adding it a few more cities so that it can be easier to make money in the early ages?

By the way, how did you get such good heightmap? It's fantastic how smooth it is compared to the majority of the maps in the workshop
