Thanks for the positive comments, audigex, Badger and Raichase
I am doing so with two very simple, yet very large, picture. One of Hallstahammar and surroundings, where the high speed line recently opened! It runs both to Höllviken International Airport, situated directly east of Höllviken City, and to Ljungby International Airport.
I've also added a routemap. Please request any interesting area - I've recently been working on re-designing the roads of cities and I've built roads between towns as well. Many towns have grown so that the station is situated in the middle, with the town growing percectly well around it. You could perhaps spot some in this routemap, the year is 1961.
Sorry about the questions, but I'm trying to learn to build better networks.
Bridges, Total Bridge Renewal Set (I think it's called that...)
Buses and trams are more useful in city cores when not wanting to tear down houses, or in smaller towns where building trains is not suitable
What are these trees that you use?

As I posted my problem somewhere else on the forums, and it seems you made, what didn't work in my game: how did you get the second parameter (era) of TTRS running? Or did you leave it by default?Chrill wrote:TTRS houses, era 1, spawns from 1920-1950. It's currently 1894. Since the Swedish houses can be built this early, they're the only ones actually being built, I guess. I love the looks of these towns with SweHouses though!!
My problem is really annoying... but it devours me from the inside! Nevertheless thank you in advance.
Also, if you force the area with parameters, you'll have to wait for those houses to start being built. Tear down a few other houses and waitQuintus wrote:
There have been some rail-bound extensions, however. This routemap reveals those. Two new lines have been constructed, to connect the westernmost city of Göteborg (Gothenburg) with the mainline. One of them runs from Billdal to Göteborg, and one runs from Ljunginge via Västerhaninge to Göteborg.
Hawthorn & Co - Routemap West: To give you an idea of how necessary those expansions were, the following two screenshots are of cities on the way from Ljunginge (slightly to the right in Routemap West) to Göteborg.
First up is Västerhaninge, where the new line leaves the mainline. The platforms in central Västerhaninge are newly built for this new line, whilst the smaller ones to the left hosts local trains:
Västerhaninge 1981: The second picture reveals Säffle, a town which started off quite small but has grown extremely much. It sees trains from pretty much everywhere arrive and depart, both locals and mainline trains. There are only 2 trains in this picture, but the station is often host to six trains at once:
Göteborg 1981: This screenshot does not show anything special, really. I just found it pretty. It shows the two towns of Uppsala and Höganäs on the line from Göteborg to Billdal. A bus feeder service is provided by the two Siccar buses.
Uppsala 1981: To round things off, a screenshot of a smaller extension. Towns all along the mainline north of Billdal had way more passengers than our trains could handle. Two new platforms were built at Vallenlanda and you can actually see a DMU entering those platforms. In the tunnel, a TurboTrain passes by on its way north.
Vallenlanda 1981: Please feel free to request screenshots. Most cities that I have shown before have grown a lot since they were last shown, and in many cases slightly rebuilt or expanded. I've heard many of you like screenshots of "Before and After" of cities, where an old and a new screenshot of the same area is put next to each other

EDIT: In 1946, this is what it looked like around Vallenlanda. It's similar, yet the picture from 1981 looks way better

May I ask what settings you use to create a "nice" map? I am fiddling around with them but don't end up with suitable results.
