England and Wales Scenario (OTTD)

Post by Wasila » 10 Apr 2011 08:06

England and Wales Scenario


This scenario consists of a detailed map of England and Wales, with hundreds of towns and cities, industries placed according to their approximate real life locations -- such as North Sea oil -- and a number of major rivers.

The towns are not placed to an exact scale on this map but adjusted to ensure a more enjoyable game; I have found that a number of scenarios feature a London which is seven or eight times larger than Birmingham, as in real life -- in this scenario the two cities are much closer size-wise. Industry locations are also adjusted for playability, so two parts of a chain are not too far away to transport.

The scenario is available on BaNaNaS, and so are all the newGRFs required to play it.

Map Size: 2048x2048

I, uh, hate to pick nits, but Newcastle and the river Tyne appear to have migrated about 70 miles south and are now in the Vale of York.

Compare the scenario's coast between Filey and Bridlington...

If that's deliberate, to give a large northern terminus for the East Coast Main Line, then fair enough. As a citizen of York, it hurts my eyes :)

Sure, that's the reason...

But seriously, you would know as you generated the heightmap - should Newcastle be on the map at all? The map appears to cut off quite a bit south of the border if I check it against Google Earth. I must have got confused and added it when I was making the rivers.

I didn't generate the heightmap, wouldn't know how - I modified an old scenario (the original author is mentioned previously in the thread, I'm sure).

I'm about to move house on Thursday but once I'm back online I'll have a tweak with the northeast area - Darlington should *just* off the map to the north, so it'll fit at the very top without changing things too much. I don't suppose you've got an earlier version of the map before the River Tyne was added?

OK, thanks for that. I'm afraid all the versions I have are of 2 or later (when the rivers were introduced, I believe) - I have switched systems since then and it must have got lost in the process.

I was planning on perhaps looking at the scenario again anyway to add more industries/rivers and such - I'll wait for you first so that we don't end up with two different versions.

Well mine has roads and rails on it, so you'd have to demolish at least the rails :P

I was quoting brickie there but, now you bring it up, could we see a savegame of yours to see exactly what you've done? It would be greatly appreciated :).

We're interested in the map, not your rails ;). It's up to you, though - just a suggestion.

No rush - just curious. Thanks ;).

In the meantime - version 2.5 released!

This version includes an increase in industries as well as the River Trent!

It should be available on BaNaNaS shortly.

Not to rush you, but brickie it's been a while since you promised you would work on the scenario. Have you found time yet?

Thanks,
Wasila

Ooh, I'd forgotten all about it in the fun and games of moving house and then being in a play. Duly noted, I'll see what I can come up with...

Here, how's that?

I've added a few more places in the Lake District and North York Moors as well...

Better late than ever, eh? Brickie's version released on BaNaNaS - all I added was to update the included newGRFs.

Thanks brickie!

Hmmh... Colchester and its surroundings need fixing - a few towns seem to have migrated from the coast. Anyone an expert in this area?
