Map generation time
« on: July 19, 2017, 01:05:06 PM »
Is map generation time in Simutrans-Ex the same as standard?  Or is it also 'extended'?

I ask because it seems that map generation times are very protracted nowadays, especially bigger maps with more industry.

I was wondering if there are some settings that are worth "turning off" to speed up the process (I usually turn off trees and intercity roads...)

The slowest parts of map generation are generating rivers and towns. If you reduce the initial size of most towns and reduce the number of rivers, you should be able to speed up map generation. Trees and inter-city roads are less significant in terms of time.
