After my n+1 desperate desire for a rhine-ruhr area scenario, I decided to make one myself. The Germans did a great job of cramming as much infrastructure as possible in such a tight space, kudos to them :P
I tried to place the towns and industries as accurately as possible, I blame any mistakes on the fact that I made the entire scn by hand (with a little help of google maps :P ) so don't be too harsh on me :wink:

It's possible to both build a prospering industry network or a passenger network (I prefer the latter myself).
Size is 512x512. Any comments are welcome! :)

Cheers!

A few screenshots might attract some downloads.

For a hand built map, I think you did a very good job :)

I'm just a little sad, that it's only a 512x512 map. I think the Rhur area would fit better to a 1024x1024, or even a 2048x2048 map.
It could be cool if you could find a good height map of the area, and the fill it with cities, towns and industries :D

Definitely could do with a heightmap. Nothing against what you have done.. but there is only so much you can do by raising the land by yourself.

Looks quite nice, though it's a map low on height level contrast; I'd try to use the height levels to its full extend on such map. Contrary to my predecessor I'm quite happy that it is NOT a huge map, that keeps it usable on servers.

Maybe you could pimp the map a bit more by adding minor rivers and lakes to the map using the rivers feature (and not sea as for the major water ways)?
