You'll probably want the 81 Tiles mod by BloodyPenguin to make maximum use of your playable area.

Are you really hand-drawing contour lines? :o  Quantum GIS (a large, but free program) will automatically generate contour lines, if you get tired of doing them by hand.

Hope you had a merry Christmas :)

Well, you've never seen this before.



And you can hardly see that- here it is in full size glory [linkie].

The reason you haven't seen it is that I spent the afternoon assembling it from 3RR Atlas components.  While I had done the US/Canadian lands immediately adjacent to 3RR, I'd never put them together into an integrated map.  So there you have it.

I have an ulterior motive, of course.  Starting from the discovery that a 4x4 tile Cities: Skylines map is the same size: 5 miles by 5 miles/8 kilometers by 8 kilometers, as a 3RR township, I have worked out the heightmap coverage- 16 1081x1081 pixel images- needed to recreate the region to scale so that each township could be mapped individually.  Then there is the problem of deforming an essentially flat SC4 region (I know- there are hills and small mountains, but they all rise from the same base elevation everywhere on the map) so that the Hotham Inlet is "sea level" and all the rivers and streams can flow downfill to it in C:S maps.  Hence my hand drawn contours on Pratt Island.  I don't plan to do the whole region that way (at least I hope I don't have to).  I just want to see what a hand-created contour map translated into a heightmap looks like.  The deformation upwards to the SW, NW and NE corners of the region is why I can't "reverse engineer" 3RR's SC4 quads throught the TerraFormer.  So your suggestions and tips (thanks, c.p.!!) are very welcome.  I should have some really interesting stuff to look at here over the weekend.

3RR may well have an interesting 10th anniversary come March of the new year.  We'll see.

Something to look forward to, especially if you are going to be doing pictures like that   &apls

Pounding out the beginnings of a heightmap...



...one four meter/13 foot contour at a time.

Happy New Year from Alaska, folks.

I thought 3RR was dead! I'm happy to see that is not the case! Happy New Year to you too David! And glad to see you survived that earthquake!

Looking forward to more!
