I started creating a new scenario today, and I'd like to hear some opinions about the progress so far.
This is a 1024x512 temperate map about a coastal region. This is supposed to be easy/medium in difficulty, no newgrfs needed. I have created the landmass, placed the cities and industries, but before forestation and all the details I'd like to see what you guys think about the balance.
I tried to place the industries logically and realistically but still balanced.
I have only made two scenarios previously (Cuba from BaNaNaS and Helsinki from the forums) and I don't consider myself as an hardcore tycoonist. I'm more like a casual player in this genre. That is why I'm not sure about the balance of the industries in this scenario.
Could someone take a quick look at the attached scenario and comment here what they think?
I'm looking for advice mostly in:
Here is the release candidate of this scenario. I will think about it for maybe 2 days and then upload it to bananas.
If someone sees anything wrong (too many/few industries/towns etc) with the scenario, please post a comment about
it so I can make this a better scenario before putting it online!
I played a test run and it seems that more industries are needed. Especially primary industries. Also some of the areas seemed too empty and dull, so I added a few rivers, a lake and a dozen small/medium towns here and there. I will play more to see what else is needed
The scenario is looking good, but i think it would be good with some more grf's. Maybe Sac's Stolen Trees, or North American Roads...
I added the following NewGRF:
OpenGRF+ Landscape 0.1.1
Swedish Houses Set 1.1
Generic Tram Set 0.4
The Swedish Houses works like this now: the towns use (mostly) the original town set in the beginning, but when they grow you will also see the new houses. This will be the change your company is bringing
I will attach the current RC3 version of the scenario here. If someone could check it out it would be great! I really don't know what could have went wrong in the NewGRF editing but then again I don't know much about those things.
Of course people will change them if they want but i dont think many people play much with the generic graphics if they have come to know the alternatives
2CC looks nice, tried it out and put it in the scenario. It will maybe fit the look better and give more options in the gameplay. I also really liked the opengrf+ landscape with the grids taken out. Do people normally like that or is it just me?
By the way what will happen when these newgrfs are updated? Will they still work with this scenario? I tried a lot of scenarios from bananas last night and too many of them couldn't find the correct files from the content downloader and that got me wondering.
Temperate coastal area. Includes mountains, rivers, inner lakes and islands. Towns and industries placed with realism and balance in mind.
Most towns start with 300-900 population, with some smaller town and some bigger cities also appearing.
