Wales & Surrounding Areas with Industry

Description
Based off my England & Wales 7K map https://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/?id=1384972906 this is the same sized (megalomaniac) map, focused on Wales and surrounding areas. It features 100 towns which are/were destinations of railways.

There is also increased river detail, including the severn and mersey.

I have added hand-placed industry to this copy for those seeking a what-you-see-is-what-you-get challenge.

* Experimental map sizes need to be enabled to play this map: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wj04MG3jn10

* For maps of this size, performance is key. I recommend GrandT's Massive Map Settings mod: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1376047700

* I have a YouTube channel which includes coverage of Transport Fever, using the maps that I have created: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCquZGBr9FQm5Yc6vynB9FTQ

I hope you enjoy the map. Please consider leaving a rating, once you have tried it out!

You could import your image to GIMP and then use the "gaussian blur" filter effect - this fixes the terraced look maps tend to have right after their initial creation. If you need more guidance on this, my upcoming guide will show you how to do this.

Thank you very much, pleased to see it's bringing people enjoyment.

I'm guessing you are sourcing your heightmap from ornance suvey or satellite imagery? I simply grabbed my image from browsing google for grayscale heightmaps. So im not much of an expert in converting other images, though I'd like to learn.

I am in the process of putting together a video that shares my process, so maybe that could prove useful.

This is just stunning! Spent many hours on this map!

Just out of interest, how do you create your heightmaps? I always get the contour lines in mine! Can never work out how to get them smooth :(

Hello, I have placed them manually and tried to follow some references. Mountain placement was difficult, but there are some mountainous industries. I may try to add more in a future update!
