[REL] Barcelona metro area (w/ and w/o mod) revised version

I wasn't quite happy with the initial version of this scenario, so I've revised it. I didn't like the scale of the first version, it was too small. I calculate this from the amount of city blocks I can fit within the area of the city. It's still not 1:1, but closer. I can't really force it any further or there won't be much left outside the city. I hope OpenLoco comes along eventually allowing for larger maps. But for now, this seems fair enough.

Other than that, it's pretty much the same concept as before. Some towns are gone because of the resize, and industries are differently placed. Some are placed according to actual industries, like the Damm Brewery, the somewhat famous Vicente Bosch Anise Liqueur factory in Badalona, and a printer at the autonomous university near Bellaterra. Others are fictitious, but more or less follow actual industrial and resource distribution. Since there's no coal anywhere near Barcelona, the coal mine is placed at the seaside, representing the port where coal enters. Industries do not open up or close down.

Again, no mod and mod versions. Here's the list of required objects (exactly the same as in the initial version):

Might I ask...
Did this come from grayscale or done by hand?

Just like the previous version, I used a grayscale image off an actual elevation map. I only adjusted brightness and contrast, and blurred it a bit for softness, since the resolution wasn't all that great. I also drew in the rivers, which consequently are a bit exaggerated, and only select rivers are worked in like that. But essentially, it's geographically quite accurate.

Attached is the grayscale image I used, the rivers (thick black lines) are drawn in by me, albeit following actual rivers. In reality most of the rivers in the area are in urbanized areas and often canalized, dried out or just an open-air sewer. The river on the left, the Llobregat River, is one of the larger ones, it has recently been recovered somewhat, it had always had its riverbed but it was pretty dry and polluted. The river on the right, close to the ocean, is the Besòs river, also one of the larger ones which had something similar happen to it and has also been recovered recently.
