Maps of Russia and Sindor released

Map of Russia
Today a big new map (3040×1600) of Russia created by AEO was added to the Simutrans maps website. If you use this map be sure to set the water level to -2. The recommended number of rivers is 1024, the maximum length of rivers is also 1024.

Further, a map created by Sindor was added in two sizes (256×256 and 1025×1025). Sindor's mapUse water level -6 to get the intended map. As nobody seems to know if this map actually represents a real part of the world, it can be found in the fantasy maps section. Please make a comment if you know which interesting part of the world this might be.

New tutorial about addons creating process

After many requests, finally somebody from the community has encouraged to create a detailed tutorial about the process of creating addons, from botton to top. The document, created by Gauthier, covers all stages of the addons development process, from graphics to pak file creation, but it only uses pixel art techniques, not 3D.

This tutorial is basically written for pak128, but the process is the same for any pakset, the only thing that changes is the size of the images. It’s available at SNFOS site and we’ll try to include some parts in the official wiki.

Now you don’t have excuses to start creating new objects for Simutrans…. ;)
