QuoteThe focus I had for this project is to blend micromangement and macromanagement on Simutrans. This crazy big map gives you enough space for details of big cities and more realistic distance between cities. Airplanes actaully take realistic time to move people from coast to coast.
Quote from: dannyman on February 27, 2014, 06:30:24 AMThe map projection looks a bit messed up: like it was centered on the Eastern US and the West gets kind of scrunched up and to the left. Makes California look awfully cozy . . . .Nice effort! Would be cool for multiplayer.

Quote from: kierongreen on February 28, 2014, 07:13:01 AMYes map projection gets quite tricky when you start dealing with continents. While I used USGS data I distorted it to try and ensure areas in the north and south were equal - the raw data is mercator (I think), but this looked very strange as distances in the north were huge. Incidentally this was one reason I didn't include significant areas of Canada - as the distortions would have increased even more. Latitude lines are straight and linear, but east/west placement of cities would have to rely on the surrounding geography. By the way, rather than carving the great lakes out in the latest nightly versions you'd be able to create them above sea level
