Hey, I've had this scenario on OpenTTD BaNaNaS for a little while, and after a large revision I decided that the map now deserved a proper post. So here goes.
The size is 512x512 tiles, starting date is Jan 1st 1930. I made the heightmap by finding a red/green topographical map of Djursland, and then converted it to greyscale in Photoshop with a few contrast adjustments. I manually shaped out Randers Fjord and placed some important lakes.
I tried placing all towns and cities in their real-world locations, but even with a rotated and tilted Google Earth for reference, I keep running into little inconsistencies. I plan to further revise the map, moving some towns around until I'm satisfied. But it's pretty dang close for now!
All real-world open pit dig sites are Coal Mines;
All real-world thermal plants are Power Stations;
Most real-world forests are represented;
Sawmills are in their real-world locations;
Farms dominate the landscape, Factories have been arbitrarily placed:
There are no Iron Ore Mines, Steel Mills, or Oil industries.
Most tiny towns have been pruned of their ridiculous "Olympic stadiums", though I'm sure I missed a bunch. Most towns have had their size/population manually adjusted to be more realistic.
(Town Growth Speed is set to normal. Accidents, disasters and plane crashes are turned off.)
Comments and constructive criticism very welcome - this is a work in progress!
