Balsiefen's OTTD Scenarios (16 maps, including Warhammer, Scotland, Italy, Middle Earth and Tamriel)

Post by Balsiefen »

Hullo folks, I've been making a few scenarios for OpenTTD and I thought I'd create this thread as a directory as well as for any comments/suggestions/requests for future scenarios. :D
The images are a little large so I've linked them as URLs

Scotland 1930

A 512*512 map of Scotland in 1930
-Accurate relative population sizes for all towns above 250.
-Accurate industry placement
-NewGRF's for British Transport

Tamriel

A very detailed heightmap-based scenario covering the entire continent of Tamriel from Summerset Isle to Vvardenfell and Solstheim. Towns and roads have been placed as accurately as possible and I have varied the terrain and tree types to hopefully give forests in different regions a different feel from each other.

-1024x1024 Temperate Climate
-Starting year 1935
-Uses FIRS Industries and complimentary non-default vehicle sets.

Haraldsland

A mountainous Nordic coastline of fjords, glaciers, rivers and islands. Built by hand to give realistic terrain. Towns and industries placed to give interesting gameplay and should encourage a mix of all four transport types.

-512x512 Sub-Arctic Climate
-Starting year 1945
-Uses FIRS Industries and complimentary non-default vehicle sets.

Lammas Day Islands

A maritime map with a south pacific theme. An archipelago of tropical islands and atolls lying off a desert coastline. Good for sea and air routes with the coastline and largest islands suitable for rail networks.

Uses FIRS Industrial replacement set and transport replacement newgrfs (Aviators aircraft, FISH, eGRVTS, 2cc Trains)

East Africa 1945

Set in 1945, as European colonialism starts to wind down, the map covers east Africa between Khartoum and Dar es Salaam as well as the Gulf of Aden - Modern day Tanzania, Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Yemen and South Sudan. Terrain is taken from heightmap; Industries and cities are placed accurately with period names.

Uses FIRS industry replacement set and vehicle replacement sets including the Tropic refurbishment set, FISH, eGRVTS, city tram set and Aviators Aircraft.

Middle Earth

Big 'ol Scenario of Middle Earth (Lord of the Rings). From the Haradwaith to the Forodwaith; from Lindon to Dorwinion. Places are lore-friendly as far as possible with some extras taken from MERP and other semi-canon sources. I've tried to keep towns to a manageable size and industries placement should give interesting gameplay.

Uses FIRS industry and complimentary station and vehicle sets.

Warhammer Old World

Lore-Accurate map of the Warhammer Old World. Covers from Norsca to Araby and Albion to the Worlds Edge Mountains with quite a bit of detailing. Industries should hopefully be in sensible places too.

Sundhelm Strait

Fictional scenario consisting of large bays, coastal plains and several mountain ranges divided between Anglic and Gaelic-inspired cultures.

Uses FIRS industries and complimentry vehicle sets. Towns and Industries are balanced so that they should be fun and not too frustrating to connect and get the whole map working.

Been a while since I updated this. Added two new scenarios: Lammas Day Islands and East Africa 1945. I've got a couple more somewhere that I've not uploaded to BaNaNas yet. I'll add them as I find them.

Welp, It seems to be about once a year I get around to doing this. 4 new maps: two originals, one of Middle Earth and one of Italy (which I made yonks ago). I would have had a big map of Mars too but something seems to be wrong with the newgrfs in the file.

Also maybe a Warhammer map could be in the works. I got hold of a nice heightmap recently.

Yearly new maps are in. Warhammer (favourite so far I think) and three fictional maps: Antipodea (pseudo-australian), Jacobia (pseudo-american) and Sundhelm (pseudo-british)

Hah! Probably because I haven't updated my mod set in ages. :P What's changed with it?

There are a lot of changes, but most of all I don't like that due to the beautiful scenario I have to have a newgrf so old

Respected.
Great scripts.
We are happy to play Tamriel.
I love this universe.
But as the guys noticed here, the set of mods is very old.
Are you planning to update mods in scenarios?
For example: Tamriel, Coritania, Warhammer Old World.
I'm sorry for my English.

New maps again! This time the D&D world, Faerun, a generic tropical fantasy map and another fictional English region.

Re updating the old maps, it's something Replacing the newgrfs in an existing map does seem to make them somewhat less stable. There's also a factor in that old FIRS has a few features, such as building ports on river tiles, that newer versions don't (I'm also getting sheep and cattle farms spawning fields on the map with which I don't really like aesthetically).

That said, updating the old maps with more modern newgrfs (as well as implementing a few design features I've learnt over the years) is certainly on the todo, time and buggyness allowing.

I should ask though, Are there any particular NewGRFs that bother people? To me new and old ones have always felt much the same.

I think those fields can be turned off in the newgrf parameters. As for the ports, I don't think it's important, but I think it's possible in the new version as well.
In general, I have nothing against old versions of graphics, just that I am forced to download them in this way, and often search for some versions.
By the way, no, it's not really the same. The old versions of FIRS lack other things that I've gotten used to, and it can be frustrating at times.
Oh, and now I noticed - no, the new version of FIRS doesn't have a field at cattle and dairy farms, that's an XIS thing, which is a different creator. Honestly, I personally don't mind

Hello Balsiefen, love the Italian map, thank you! I just wanted to comment to let you know about a couple of typos:
  • A town in central Italy is misspelled as “Folgino” instead of “Foligno”,
  • “Bresica” instead of “Brescia”,
  • “Bolanzo” should be corrected into “Bolzano”,
  • “Moncallieri” should be corrected into “Moncalieri”,
  • Also, “Reggio di Callabria” should be “Reggio Calabria” and “Reggio nell’Emilia” should be “Reggio Emilia”. The longer names are theoretically correct, but nobody calls these cities by those names. :)
Nitpicking aside, the map is awesome, thanks for your work!
