Hi There,

I've been playing Transport Tycoon and OpenTTD since the DOS days and thought I would try my hand at putting back into the community that has given me hours (days!!) of fun over the years.

Using some of the many threads available around these forums, I have created a new heightmap of the South Eastern corner of Australia. North to Tin Can Bay, south to Bass Strait, east to Cape Byron and west across to Port Augusta and Whyalla. It's a fairly large map, 2048 * 2048 tiles, starting in 1950.

To play, it requires one of the post 1.5 series nightlies. (Greater than 1.5.2).

I have tried to keep the NewGRF content to as short a list as possible, but the opportunity to use the FIRS v2 alphas was too good to pass up!

The other NewGRF files needed, along with the builds I used:
2cc Trains in NML v5732
2CC Tram Set 0.0.1-beta1
Aussie Town Names
2cc Bus Set
av8 Aviators Aircraft Set
Squid Ate FISH 2.0.2
Better bridges parameters
FIRS Industry Replacement Set 2.0.0-alpha-5
GRVTS v1.4 32bpp

I have used various sources to compile the data:
CGIAR-CSI SRTM 90m Digital Elevation Data http://srtm.csi.cgiar.org/
Australian Cities List from Geonames http://www.geonames.org/
Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Geofabric http://www.bom.gov.au/water/geofabric/
And a bit of my own local knowledge of various areas! http://127.0.0.1/

The whole scenario isn't 100% complete yet, I'm still working on some of the industry placements, there's a lot to do with the FIRS set.

I'm keen to see if anyone has any feedback and to see if it's worth pursuing further or if I should just crawl back into my box!

Will do my best to answer any queries through the main thead here at this stage and will also upload to BaNaNaS.

Tim

Good to see some Aussie extensions to the game. Makes the game a lot more interesting when playing scenarios that are of a country rather then a random generated map.

If you go back into your box, don't close the lid. Allow yourself to come back out and do more projects.

Cheers

Hi There,

Just wanted to apologise for the lack of updates here.

Life has taken over for the moment, but I'm hoping to get an updated version of the map published in mid-November or so.

Tim

Hi Tim,

Know what you mean, need to do house chores and family ties first. When you do update put it on this site too .. Be great if we can get all Australian stuff together if ever possible.

viewtopic.php?f=26&t=73048&start=20

I've put some things there too, including a beta version of a Industry Set. Maybe you will like to use it in your scenario. It is based on FIRS, but I changed names of a few and replaced some to try make it more Australiana and realism.

See ya around

Garry
