Thames Estuary, London UK

Description
Create your own City of London and show that mayor Borris Johnson that bus lanes and cycle routes are not the answer to central London's traffic woes!

I have created this map from an edited heightmap of the river Thames. There are highway connections on all 4 sides and railway connections on 3 sides. The 'Orbital' Motorway is within the 25 playable tiles (download map expansion mod) so you can add, edit, remove junctions as needed if you expand into them.

The height scale is not perfect, the hills of 'Greenwich park' are more like gentle mountains, but who wants to play on a dead flat map!? The river shape is spot on and the river 'flows' towards the east end where the sea level meets the river.

Ferry's / Ships can travel about halfway up the river, and flight paths skim the edge of the playable area.

All land around the river is fertile (if you delete the trees!), there is some oil in the east end and ore deposits in the hilly areas.

Have fun and let me know if there are any issues with the map!

Charlie: I made an orbital motorway that allows editing of junctions by ensuring the lanes stayed within the inner 25 tiles (you need unlock 25 tiles mod for this) its not road for road accurate. The scale is not 1:1 but it is close enough to allow best gameplay imo

Looks like a great map but I have a question about the scale - is the motorway meant to represent the M25? Its just the positions at which it crosses the river looks to me more like the A406...

Alright guvna's? I hope people are having fun building on the map! This is a 'Temperate' themed Map, but you can unlock the European buildings by subscribing to the European Buildings Unlocker Mod here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=456408505
