4096x2048 New Zealand

Post by jimbob » 16 Sep 2018 21:03

I'm a big fan of Featherblade's New Zealand Scenario. The shape of the islands means all the modes of transport are viable. However having learned that NZ has mostly single track lines
I thought that would be an interesting challenge. However I found the map size meant it was a little cramped putting in
passing places and big enough stations to handle the long trains.

So I've started building my own larger map:

- Towns (hopefully didn't miss any)
- Lakes
- Some Major Rivers
- Landmark names

Still to do Industry and Road placement. Lighthouses, radio masts

Would be very grateful for any commentions and suggestions.

Very nice indeed , may I suggest a sprinkle of the very talented Garry G's GRF , them Auz Station / object sets would look nice here .On the Industry side He is updating his Auz Industry set at the Moment , nice sheep chain . On the Light house side why not use the Lighthouse set , great variety . viewtopic.php?t=59534
Transport not sure , Garry G has Auz trains ..... need thinking , definitely need Marine and Aircraft Grf . Town set , maybe a mix of sets .

That's my little ideas , look forward to the finish scenario .

Here is an update with industry placement similar to the smaller map (some inaccuracies for gameplay purposes).

Masts and Lighthouses mapped as according to OSM (https://overpass-turbo.eu/ is awesome)

I've also finally registered and posted on
BaNaNaS both this and my old UK scenario

Will look into producing a GRF version, I'm considering FIRS (possibly a custom economy if I can get the python comilier running?) and 2CC configured for Oceania plus some of scooby's suggestions.
