Change size of map
« on: September 02, 2013, 07:19:40 PM »
Hi,

the map of Czech Republic at http://maps.simutrans.com/europe.html by Joker is really fantasic being the only one having part of neighbourgh countries. But I find it really small.

Is there a way to make the map bigger? I mean, change each "square" of the game to four new, making it twice the size, would be really nice.

Yes, a  .ppm file is nothing other than a bitmap. A lot of graphic packages (Gimp for example) can read this format. In Gimp, but other graphic packages as well, you can scale up or down the map. You can usually select an algorithm for that; if you select nearest neighbour, it will not "invent" in between colours. But probably every algorithm will work.

So, should be very easy.
