* UK Railway Set Add-On (UKRS2+)
* FISH (0.9.2)

Edits and Updates:
March 19, 2008 - Fixed Settings, added some more Oil Rigs, edited production values at a few industries [1.1]
January 3, 2011 - Rebuilt all the industries, improving several towns plus adding a few towns as well as reshaping a few pieces of land [2.0]
June 27, 2012 - Demolished everything but the landscape, rebuilt all towns and industries, added rivers, updated NewGRF demands [3.0]
June 27, 2012 - Edited a town name [3.1]
June 29, 2012 - Fixed some Game Settings included currency (Spanish Pesetas) and updated some place names such as rivers, lakes and mountains [3.2]

Today and yesterday night, I finished actually shaping the land and started working heightwise. Mountains and similiar. This is proving quite a challenge, but I think it's starting to develop into.. something. Opinions, suggestions for improvements?

Been working on this daily now for some two three days. I'm still not done even with the landscape of the first island. I want it all to look really good. Here's one screenshot of the work so far, though:

It is looking good. Are you going to put rivers in? I really want to use them, but since they can only be placed in the scenario editor i never have.

Even I do not know the exact location of these Islands, but if it is from the "real world" why not use a heightmap? If you can give me the exact positions of the island, I can easely make one for you * If you like PM *

Further it looks quite interesting, make sure you make enough transport oppertunities for boats, since most of the TT games only use trains :)

This is not the real world whatsoever. I have randomly created this map from my head, and am quite pleased about the outcome of the land mass shape. Also, mph, I will not include rivers in this particular scenario. I simply am not familiar with them at all

EDIT: After some days of laziness, I got back to business tonight. I have finished the major island, and all other islands but two. These two are both in the 2nd-to-biggest size range

It's taken me about two weeks to get finished with shaping the land and getting the mountains there. I consider myself done, finally. I have gotten around to placing towns and cities. They are fairly far away from each other, there won't be a city every 10th tile so to say.

Heya Chrill,

First of all, I really like your scenario. The amount of details is astonishing! The industries have been build evenly across the map, and every corner of the map has been occupied. I really like the landscape. It looks like the landscape has been copied from the real world, but I am not sure though. I like also the signs, that have been placed everywhere on the map. The map gets a more gently look that way. Of course there is something to improve, 'cos I don't like the capital. I really dont like the form of that town. Could be just my opinion, but I think it is better to build just low bridgdes, and not the ones you've build. And with the ship max set to only "100" i really think that the scenario doesn't serve his purpose. I also think that building more oil ridges is an better idea than all those oil wells.

I like your scenario Chrill. Its one of the best I have ever seen. Well done!!

Luukland

I have to admit I totally missed that setting of 100 ships. Thanks for pointing that out.

As previously said, this is not an actual piece of land. I made it myself, and it is not really based on any real place in the world. Your note about the bridges, though, I disagree. It feels more realistic this way, I think. As this is the first release, I will do regular updates to this scenario. Thanks for your warm words though! :)

Re: [OTTD][Release] Archipiélago Hermoso [v 2.0 in progress]

Post by Chrill » 03 Jan 2011 09:32

Some two years ago, I claimed I would make regular updates to this scenario. Now I'm finally getting around to it. I'm sending you a version of the 2.0 scenario here. It will work with 1.1.0-beta2 or recent nightlies. However, I am having major issues figuring out which NewGRFs should be included in the scenario and which shouldn't. I am sending you this, and I would highly appreciate if somebody could help me find the right NewGRFs to send this scenario to Bananas with. I am new to this whole "releasing scenarios" thing and do not know if I should include a long list of specific NewGRFs or leave that up to the player :P Nonetheless, the scenario should already be fully playable as it is!

Re: [OTTD][Release] Archipiélago Hermoso [v 3.0 - June 27, 2

Post by Chrill » 27 Jun 2012 01:24

Once again, I am returning with this scenario. Version 3.0, I suppose. It is completely updated and remade to work perfectly with OpenTTD's newest releases (It is built in OpenTTD 1.2.1) and features rivers for the first time. Industries have been carefully placed to model a potential real world (several coal and iron ore mines in a particular area, an island consisting of all-Grain no-Livestock farms to simulate wine production) and all towns have been recreated from scratch to feature a well-balanced of mix of big cities and smaller towns and villages.

The game requires the following NewGRFs:
* Swedish Houses (1.1.1)
* Total Town Replacement Set (3.1.3)
* UK Railway Set (UKRS2)
* UK Railway Set Add-On (UKRS2+)
* FISH (0.9.2)

All of the above are available through the in-game content downloader. The scenario is found in the first post! Thank you!

Thank you for a very nice scenario :D

I like the concept of a few mid-size islands, where you can start out with ferry services, and maybe later make bridges between them. The cities and industies are well placed too. :)

To me, it's a bit odd, that in some places, the rivers ends in very small lakes, that are not connected to the sea. :P

I think it could be very cool to make this map with FIRS industries. ;) 8)

Trees end up cluttering the landscape to insanity. It was a conscious decision to leave them out. Sooner or later, you will probably make trees yourself to satisfy a nearby town anyway :P However, I did add some trees for version 3.2, albeit fewer than what you see in regular random maps
