Description
Map Pack Germany: Rheinland-Pfalz is the 9th Map Pack that i have created. After a brake of like half a year i return to Transport Fever to bring you all another edition of my quest to make maps of all the states of Germany. This time the focus is the state of Rheinland-Pfalz in the west of Germany. The state borders France, Belgium and Luxemburg, and some border areas also are featured in this map map.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Setup of the Map Pack:

When i started making this Map Pack i noticed there are a number of smaller railways in this state. I decided to make this the focus of this map pack. I have gotten lots of comments on my map packs of people complaining the insane size of my maps make them unplayable for a lot of people, and while i still want to make 6k maps, i also wanted this map pack to include some maps that are palyable for everyone. The smaller railways made it possible to keep the size down for a number of the maps in this map pack.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Discription of all the 9 maps in this Map Pack:

Main Map: This map is the largest one. It includes all of the state Rheinland-Pfalz and some bordering areas, including some of the Ruhr area, the east side of the Rhine, part of the Sauerland, and the border of France, Luxemburg and Belgium (and 1 city in the Netherlands). Now i hear all of you say: WHY IS THERE NO RHINE IN MY RHEINLAND??? Well, i tried. It wasn't possible. The size of the area, combined with the height difference made it impossible to fit any river into this map without insane cliffs on the river side.

Experimental Mapsize needed: Yes
Map size: 5633x5889
Number of cities: 235
Height Range: 100 - 350

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ahrtalbahn and Kasbachtalbahn: Large map size map focusing on 2 smaller railways in the north of the state. The Ahrtalbahn is a line that snakes through a valley. Rail services end in Bonn, in the state of Nordrhein-Westfalen, which i also included in this map. The Kasbachtalbahn is a railway no longer in service. Most of the the railway has been abandoned for years. A small part of it (all of the line that is featured on this map) is still being used for a heritage railway.

Or at least a former triangle. while all 3 cities are connected to eachother, the triangle was broken in WW2 because a brigde was blown up. if you want to go from Monsheim to Kirchheimbolanden you need the travel through Alzey. All railways on the map are still used today.

@General of Rome: Sehr schönes mappack, ich suche schon lange eine Map zur Region Trier. Hab mal die Moselstrecke ausprobiert! Hast du interesse mal das Eck um Trier als eigene Map zu machen - Die Mündung von der Saar in Konz geben die Möglichkeit, sowohl Obermosel, saarbahn - sauerbahn und die weststrecke nach Luxemburg in einer Karte zu realisieren!

@Robert Montjoy yes the industry is random on these maps. i never place industry myself in my mods. I think it costs way too much time to do the proper research to find out what industry really exists in an area.
Robert Montjoy Feb 14 @ 3:45am 
sehr schön, vielen Dank dafür!
ich wohne zwischen Meisenheim und Obermoschel, deswegen ist die Karte natürlich sehr interessant für mich.

Sehr gut gefällt mir "die höchste Steilwand" außerhalb der Alpen, vor Kreuznach. Wer da nicht mal vorgestanden hat, hält das kaum für möglich.

Schade, aber ich denke das gibt der Maßstab nicht her, auf der "Kaiserslauten Karte" müssten mindestens 2 Dutzend Burgen / Ruinen auf den Hügeln sein.

Frage:
Wieso hast Du Obermoschel 2x aufgenommen? Meinst Du vielleicht Oberhausen an der Nahe oder soll das den Zipfel Obermoscheler Stadtgebiet repräsentieren, der da rausgeht?
Robert Montjoy Feb 14 @ 3:45am 
Ist die Industrie zufällig verteilt? In Kreuznach ist z.B. ein großes Michelin Werk und in Meisenheim ist Bito. Das sind zwei der großen Arbeitgeber in der Region.

Wobei... kommt natürlich drauf an, welche Epoche man spielt. Allerdings sollten die Straßen "ziemlich unverrückbar" sein. Die haben die Römer angelegt und Atilla ist schon drauf langelatscht... bis hin zur Deutschen Wehrmacht die Aufmarschrouten und Nachschubrouten für die Frankreichfeldzüge des letzten Jahrhunderts brauchte. Wenn alles voll mit Wald und Hügeln ist, dann gibt es halt nicht viele naheliegende Möglichkeiten eine Straße zu bauen.

Nochmal Danke für die Karten und viele Grüße aus der Nordpfalz
Robert

@Castro-IP thanks, always nice to see someone enjoy my work!

@Tornado look at the comment from Castro. i tried loading the main map myself with 300 + modsactive and it succesfully loaded, although it indeed took over 15 minutes.
Castro-IP Feb 10 @ 12:35pm 
Awesome Maps for sure. Much appreciated.
Love the large main map.
first load can take up 20 or so minutes without the game responding but its worth the waiting.
Nevertheless extraordinary work. :steamhappy:
