Description
Map Pack: Alps is the 3rd map pack mod that i have released so far.

WARNING: these maps have insane map sizes, so be sure that you have turned 'experimentalMapSizes = true' in the settings file, because otherwise these maps WILL NOT LOAD. even if you do have this turned on, the maps are so large that it might take a looooong time to load. but they WIL load, as long as you don't click on the screen while loading, and just give it time.

this map pack includes 4 maps: (i kind of forgot about the 4th one when i made the picture)

- Rhatische Bahn Map: a map centered around the area of service for the Graubünden narrow gauge rail network called the "Rhatische bahn". The map ranges from the southern border of Lake Constance/Bodensee in the north, to the Italian valley of Sondrio in the south. Height range: 90-800. Number of Cities: 72. Map size: 2561x7937.

- Wallis Remastered: a map centered around the Swiss province of Wallis. The map ranges from Thun and Interlaken in the north to Zermatt and Domodossola in the south. Height range: 80-700. Number of cities: 106. Map size: 7937x3329. This map is not a original of mine, but as the name suggests, a remaster of a map by someone else: the "Wallis" map by JCRvonRichthofen. a link to his original mod can be found here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=889703590&searchtext=wallis . So what have i changed form the original? basicly everything. i smoothened out the map, changed the size, added a whole bunch of cities.

- München to Venice (the map i forgot in the picture): a map inspired by the simular scenario in "Railroad Tycoon 3" ranging from München and the south-German lake area, through the Austrian area around Innsbrück and the Brennerpass, to South Tirol (Bolzano, Trente) and in the far south the city-area of Verona and Venice. Height range: 80-800. Number of cities: 182. Map size: 3329x9985.

- Salzburg to Triest: a map centered around the railway connection between the German-Austrian border area around Salzburg, through central Austria around such places like Zell am See, to the north-Italian area around Triest and Udine, as well as the Slovenian border area. WARNING: This map needs the "No initial roads" mod. if you don't use this mod this map will refuse to load. Height range: 95-800. Number of cities: 119. Map size: 2305x8961.



The area that this map pack focusses on (Alps) is one of the areas in the world that i though to be the most interesting and challenging for this game. The maps however, were an absolute pain to make because towns failed to connect, heights of diffent tiles of the map being wrong, resulting in the horrible process of needing to make little changes to the map, loading it up, finding out it was still f**ck*d up, and needing to change it again. So eventhough i would love to present to you all lots more maps of this area, i will not, at least for now.


so what's next?

Moar Islands! probebly Greek Agean Islands or the Croatian Adriatic islands will be the focus for the next map pack.

Hope you will enjoy, and see you in my next map pack!

Thank you!

@Incrediblejimmy yeah it's decently easy to do when making the map, since you can just like the towns, just click a button to place them. However i pretty much always place a huge amount of cities on a map, resulting in it taking over an hour some times to place te cities, and there being almost no room left on the map for manually placed industry. that said, you were interested in less towns, so you can always just get the heightmap from the mod file, and through the map in the map creation tool again, so you can place towns and industry as you like it.
Incrediblejimmy Jun 19 @ 11:20am 
Are there no parameters that control how much industry is placed? Maybe if I find the time I might look into manual placement for my game...hopefully not that hard...(I guess mostly annoying?)...

Just recently came across some maps with manually placed Ind and had to discover how much it adds to gameplay when you can't just pick and choose which industries best link to your routes but are forced to adapt to the map....
General of Rome  [author] Jun 19 @ 11:14am 
@Incrediblejimmy yeah the industry is spawned randomly, and the game likes flat terrain, so it will most likely spawn most of the industry there, then again, the valleys are the places where industry is usueally concentrated in the real world too.
Incrediblejimmy Jun 19 @ 10:38am 
Tried some of the maps, I have to say they have a very nice terrain, but sometimes less could be better...applies for cities and especially Industries...it seems a bit overloaded in the flat areas...

@j.pierre.petit yeah it's a known problem with the Trieste map.... there was a warning for it in the description of the mod. If you use the "no initial roads" mod the map will load succesfully, but you will have to construct all road outside the towns yourself. the problem with the map is that 1 or more of the towns is placed on too harsh terrain, and therefor fails to connect the road network.... i was unfortunately despite hours of trying unable to fix this problem with this map, as i failed to find which town(s) were the problem...
j.pierre.petit Jun 5 @ 4:18am 
The map Trieste dosn't work. "impossible to trace the road network". Pity; otherwise the map Augsburg Venice is superb; except that the very high number of cities saturates the game very quickly ...

WOW o.O

@Cibaris yeah, let's all hope the performance patch will fix the game! :)
