Valley of Mexico

Vancouver Feo has made a very cute map of the Valley of Mexico, the historical heart of Mexico and Mexico City. It is only 304×240, so very suitable for low-profile computers or network play. Set water level at -2.

Buen juego!

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!

Sarlock October Screenshot Contest Winner

october screenshot contest: a tale of two cities

A picture from Canada, (Sarlock’s screenshot) won the SMSC contest. (It could not be more fitting in autumn i should like to remark.) Raiser’s contribution was only one vote behind, don’t miss to have a look at all screenshots at the international forum.

Beside showing Canada, remarkable about the winning screenshot are the new trees. A work in progress snapshot of Sarlock’s extensive (winter) tree project for pak128. Over the last weeks he’s been working on high quality conifers and birches with good winter images.

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!!!
