[REL] Zimmlock's US Square Auto Map Westernized

Post by Killianbass3 »

So about a year I downloaded this map from rdrdrdrd's post and at the time I thought that this was a wonderful map and I would play it immediately but when I opened it and looked around I thought there was no way I was good enough to tackle this map so I left it on the back burner thinking about it often and then about 4 months ago I decided to give it a try so I opened it up and changed a few things like the industries, vehicles and the start date and so I started it in the 1930s so I could get part of the steam era in and played until the year 2005 and thought there was something about this map that wasn't quite right so I thought what are most of the other maps I play mostly like what common characteristics do they share? Dry grass an overall western US appeal so I set-out on a mission to westernize the map and it looks great in my opinion and it helps shift the map westward so other road names could be used like SP and SF wold match the landscape better and they do so what I want to know who all likes the changes to the map and if should I do anything to change it and what. Please tell me what you think while I try to contact Zimmlock for permission to re-release it so thank you for reading and I hope you found this interesting.

good luck getting this to work without mods, one of my favorite maps.
May the force be with you.

A little bit excessive on the poll choices, though...

Hold on, where's the download? Or is this just a show-and-tell thread?

Release it with mods, tell us which ones we need, then work on the no-mods copy.

Well, it took some time before I was able to test this baby because even I was missing a whole lot of mods, but I finally had some time to play around with it. No screenshots are needed because Killian showed enough of them, but you will need quite some mods to play this map. Here's the list with the additional mods needed to play this very nice Westernized version of the map:

PARTFACT : PARTFACT.dat
REFINERY : REFINERY.dat

(All can be found on AMI-Trains, the Refinery comes from my valuables-mod)


It realy turned out to be a nice conversion, and if you should release it go ahead and do so. But as you take a look at all the mods needed, it will take some time to get it to work...

Regards,

Erik

To identify these files, you may find this tool to be useful.

I know about this tool Zakos :mrgreen: for years...But since I already have all of the files and be able to open up this map, I don't need to look for the files...People who will download this scenario will :wink: So that's why I helped them so they know what files to look for.

Oww and I just saw Kilian's private message to me in which he asked me to release the scenario for him:

Btw: The tool only works if you have Locotool installed as well, and the two tools have to be in the same folder.
