Fear of heights

Swiss AlpsIf you love skiing, mountain climbing or a well planned railroad then you can play on this map of the Swiss Alps made by NYC911. It is part of an interesting scenario in which you have to be very careful in laying your track.

And now I’m packing it up and I’m rollin’ on out to Vancouver

VancouverSarlock has made a map of Vancouver and its Fraser river. It is a very big and detailed map, sized 6000×2148. Each tile represents 20m, so we are talking about an area of around 120×40 km. Mountain heights are on a logarithmic scale. Be sure to set water level at -9. To date this is the longest map on Simutrans Maps and it might be hard on your computer if you completely fill it up.

So, pack it up and roll on out to Vancouver!

Relive your holiday

MarsSo, we all have returned from our holidays. While you were away, others have spend time to make some new content for Simutrans Maps. If you are dreaming of going back to the good life, you can spend it with Simutrans in the USA and Central America, in New York City, on the British Isles and on … eh … Mars.

Kierongreen has made two huges maps, one of the British Isles (including the Shetlands), size 2440×3816, and one of the United States and Central America, size 5120×3276. That last one is now the biggest map available on Simutrans Maps. Be warned, both need serious computers to actually use them.

On a much smaller scale Carlbaker spinned off another part of his huge USA North-East map. This time it covers the area of New York City, size 1400×1114. And finally RogerBW has managed to map Mars just in time before Curiosity landed. He did in two sizes, 720×360 and 1440×720. Simutrans in space!!!

Over 200 maps available at Simutrans Maps

PragueAs of today there are more than 200 maps available at the Simutrans Maps website. The latest contributions were made by Carlbaker and ML.

Carlbaker extracted four smaller maps from his huge USA North-East map. They have various sizes and themes and cover New York City and Long Island, the New England coast, Boston to Niagara and Delaware and the Appalachians.

ML made a map of Prague and its surroundings a few years ago and has kindly made it available to the community. It comes in three sizes: 250×197, 500×394 and 1000×788.

And of course a big thank you to everyone who has contributed a map for Simutrans Maps in the past. It was the only way to get to these 200 maps.

A new space for Simutrans Experimental at ISF

After the proliferation of new experimental paksets and forum activity around this project, the administrators of the International Simutrans Forum have decided to set up a new Experimental section and discussion forum. It will be useful to be able to separate development and non-development related topics connected to Simutrans-Experimental.

There’s a discussion board for general issues, a development board for extension requests and patches, and also a paksets board. In addition to that, all the existing threads and posts from the Simutrans-Experimental development board have been moved there. Thus in the future, remember to take care and use the appropriate board, now that we have more from which to choose!

Visit the new Simutrans Experimental board at Simutrans International Forum.
