The world population in this map is just under 2 million. I included a whole lot of towns and placed them all by hand as accurately as I possibly could. The map features several urban areas, both near the coastlines and hidden deep within the mountains. Some islands also have cities on them, so if you want, it is possible to create a ferry between them. Originally I only planned to make a map of Chubu, a region of Japan, but I accidentally happen to have included most of Kanto and Kansai, most notably Tokyo and Osaka, thanks to which it is completely possible to recreate the Tokaido Shinkansen. Aside from the Tokaido Shinkansen, the Hokuriku Shinkansen and the Joetsu Shinkansen (which apparently doesn't even touch Joetsu...) can be recreated thanks to the convenient size of the map.
Whilst I did my best to recreate the location of the towns and cities as accurately as possible, that might not be completely true for the cities, as I let the algorithm sort that out, I only made sure that Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Nagoya would be just a bit bigger than the rest.
The map starts in 1880, 9 years after the formation of the first Japanese Railway Company.
Images: Heightmap: I got the SRTM files from this website: http://dwtkns.com/srtm/ as I couldn't get the Google Earth thing working. So, if you also can't get the GE thing working, try that, it's got a nice globe and stuff.
I've made two scenario downloads, one with the Japan Set trains (and TIAS) and one with 2cc (and MMT):

If the Japan Set Tracks aren't loaded or functioning properly then that might be part of the issue as the Japan set trains and possibly TIAS uses the japan sets tracks, which the normal tracks are likely set as Narrow gauge tracks and thus the Japan set and TIAS trains wont show up if they dont detect those narrow gauge tracks.Densha wrote:Even though TIAS is preloaded with this scenario, trains from this GRF never end up showing up on the vehicle buying list. I exported the GRF settings from this scenario to use with a random map, and then TIAS trains do show up properly. I have not been able to deduct what the cause of this problem could be. Any ideas?

To get TIAS to work you need a version of TIAS that works in the sub-arctic climate.Densha wrote:All other Japan Set trains, such as Shinkansen and the Trains Addon standard gauge trains properly show up including their respective tracks.

Thank you for sharing.Erato wrote:To get TIAS to work you need a version of TIAS that works in the sub-arctic climate.
Might you know know, please, how come food is not accepted anywhere no matter winter or summer? You see, I activated the cold winters parameter within the Japanese landscapes newGRF (I also switched industries on).
Hmmm..is there a Japanese set that accepts food, do you know? What would happen were I to supplant the Tokaīdō houses with another set mid-game, wouldn't I thus corrupt my game (I've taken a liking to the cozily clustered wooden houses, and am keen to see how the set evolve)?acs121 wrote:You need a set of houses that accept food. Amongst others you have Total Town Replacement Set and Swedish Houses.
This scenario is loaded with plenty of other JapanSet 3 newGRFs including its lot of Buildings but none labelled Houses, plus searching external websites reveals no such corresponding file. Where must you have found it yourself, please?acs121 wrote:JapanSet 3 Houses provides houses accepting food, too.
However, adding building NewGRF buildings in-game may corrupt your savegame.
Even having TTRS supercede the original buildings yields no change in food acceptance..oh well.acs121 wrote:Yes, it is Buildings.
But i'll have to say : if it does not work with JapanSet 3 : Buildings, try with Total Town Replacement Set or Swedish Houses.
By default, food is only accepted by small houses in the arctic or tropic climate and most town grfs mimic that behaviour. I guess the first houses replaced are the ones in the town center, so you won't notice a change in food acceptance until new houses in the outskirts are built. Of course it may also be possible that the game is corrupted due to the added grfs.trainrover wrote: Even having TTRS supercede the original buildings yields no change in food acceptance..oh well.
Which towns?!Pyoro wrote:Gave it a try and the food requirement works perfectly fine when towns are above the snowline. So must be something on your end ^^;
This is mystifying. I loaded the save of my first day, 1 Jan 1880, and none of the towns appears above the snowline, which the author has set to 30. Again, I activated the cold winters parameter within the already-loaded Japanese landscapes newGrf. What setting triggers the snowline into becoming dynamic, because (years ago) my other sub-arctic scenario was the other way around, wherein I'd adjusted something(?...) such that the snowline surprisingly became static?
Anyhow, querying the snowy house tiles back in these late 1940s shows none of them as bearing any food cargo factor. About 2 days ago I read somebody's posting in another thread on some board here, sharing his disappointment about there being no food chain with these buildings.
Edit: I'm sorry for soiling this very thread here with the following screenshot from another scenario! but I'd like to reveal how food is accepted below the snowline and well into spring .. is this normal?
