Map Pack Germany: Schleswig-Holstein

Map Pack Germany: Schleswig-Holstein is the 7nd Map Pack that i have created. After the release of my last map pack i did a strawpoll so people could vote on the next map pack that i would make, and Germany won. Germany however has so much potential for maps that i cannot fit all the maps i want to make in 1 map pack.... so instead i will be doing one map pack for every German state. Schleswig-Holstein is the first state i made a map pack for.


WARNING: You need to have experimental map sizes on "true" if you want to play these maps, otherwise the game will refuse to load the maps.

Background information about the maps:

Map Pack Germany Schleswig-Holstein:
This map offers an overview of the entire state of Schleswig Holstein, and also includes Hamburg, Bremen, and parts of Niedersachen and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, as well as parts of southern Denmark. This means that some long distance routes arre possible. The map has the possibility to be used for shipping, with 2 channels connecting the Ostsee (sea on the side of Denmark) with the river Elbe, and though that the Nordsea.

Map Pack Germany Hamburg Kiel Railway:
This map is focused on the railway connection between Hamburg and Kiel. the main Intercity line for this connection takes a western route through Elmshorn, before turning North-east towards Neumünster, after which the North-eastern route continues to Kiel. There also is a smaller rail service between Hamburg-Eidelstedt through Henstedt-Ulzburg to Neumünster. Apart from that this map also gives the oppertunity to recreate the Hamburg suburban rail system, and all of the main waterways are navigateble.

Map Pack Germany Lubeck Hamburg railway:
This map is focused on the railway connection between Hamburg and Lübeck. While all other maps in this Map Pack have at least some other main routes to focus on, this map really only has the one route (Hamburg - Bad Odesloe - Lübeck). the only other railways are: the Hamburg Suburban railway system, the Lübeck - Travemünde beach railway, and some of the Bad Odesloe - Nëumunster railway (the part from Bad Odesloe to Bad Segeberg).

Map Pack Germany Lubeck Kiel Flensburg:
This map is a strange but definitely interesting one. It doesn't focus on one of the main routes, but rather on a route between 3 of the main cities of Schleswig-Holstein: Lübeck, Kiel and Flensburg. Now you would expect such a route in a railway country like Germany to be serviced by at least a once per hour Intercity service, but no. you can't even go directly between Lübeck to Flensburg. You would have to make a transfer in Kiel, and both parts of the railway are only used by a once in an hour 2 part diesel service (lint 41 trains). What makes this map interesting then? The landscape. The route between these cities goes through an area filled with lakes and sea-arms. apart from that, the map also offers more than 1 route between these cities, because Bad Odesloe, Neumünster and Rendsburg are also on the map. Last but not least the map also includes some unused and heritage railways: the railway between Nëumunster and ascheberg is currently unused, and the railways Malente - Lütjenburg, Schönberg - Kiel and Kappeln - Süderbrarup are heritage railways.

@General of Rome i have found the problem. If there are the other Schleswig Holstein maps subscribed your version dont appear. But when I desubscribed the others maps your will appear. Thx for tip you gave me. The map is awesome. I hope the other map packs will be great too.

@Eternal Cosmic Kreidewelt i am sorry, i have no idea what i can do to fix that for you. The map works fine for me.... the only thing i can think of is the fact that there is a other Schleswig-Holstein mod on the workshop. If you are subscribed to that one the game might get confused because the maps are called the same or something like that?

Hi. I have the Problem that the Map of Schleswig-Holstein don´t appear in my Map list in the new Game screen. I have experimental map size on true. The 3 maps with the single railways have i found but i miss the Map of Schleswig-Holstein. :steamsad:

@BemakKruskow You need to have "experimental map sizes" on "true" if you want to play these maps, otherwise the game will refuse to load the maps. you have to turn that to "true" in the settings file (you need Notepad for that). the file can be found in: steam/userdata/(**your steamID**)/446800/local. The reason that the maps fail to load are because the map is larger than 16 million pixels. But if you do what i said, the game will open maps to a size of 36 million pixels, and the map WILL load fine.

@Zlango thanks for telling me. it happens a lot. i have suspected the Map Cration Tool to bug out when there are too many towns because of it happening so often to me that there are 2 towns with the same name in my mods, but it is probebly just me failing to copy-paste properly.....

Thanks to your bug report i have now fixed the problem, if you start a new game on the map, it should be changed.

Hey there, I just saw the map and was immediately in love with it. :steamhappy:
There's just one tiny "mistake" I discovered :D
On the big map - there are two "Wyk auf Föhr" - but there's only one existing - the upper village is called "Westerland" ;)
