No, greenoaks and thanks for dropping in...belated Xmas wishes.
this is possibly from the background colour, so will see about adjusting those next version.

I have to admit that at first glance I let out a sigh when I saw all the subtle color changes but was oh so pleasantly surprised when I noticed they didn't matter. The map could appear like Das Schloss to me but I wouldn't care as long as I could figure the bonuses easily like I can on this one.
On a small side note, I would prefer that the photos were run through a paintbrush filter or something so they matched the vibe of the map better but this of course is purely a creative viewpoint.

i can't find anything to nitpick you about.

I've always liked Railmaps, so I hope you're gonna make another awesome one.
Falkland islands, why are they on the map? They do not have railways and certainly not owned by anyone in the region.
koontz1973 wrote:cairns, the new photo look is nice. It brings in a sense of the older maps with the shapes but the frame can do with a lot of love (early days I know but just want to get my opinion in). Which leads me onto my next point, the terminus, the shape, or lack of one is different and nice (I always like different). But does B connect to L and N to G. This will need to be put onto the map.
To sort the E bonus out, why not connect PTM to SCB?
Overall, a good update.

koontz1973 wrote:cairns, 2 things before this map can go forward.
- Firstly the sizing issue. This is a big concern at the moment and it looks like it will not be needed for this one. You have a 1000 in height but you need to get it down to the 800 limit. This should really not be to much hassle. It will make the map more square but this is a must right now.
- Secondly, this is going to be the last one allowed. That means no Rail Antarctica or Rail Mars etc.
As for the last one, even I have to say that this is not unique in any way now. As you know, that is one of the requirements for a new map. As for Rail North America, we already have Rail USA. Nothing unique about that at all.
koontz1973 wrote:You are right, nothing unique about map after map of the USA, but apart from the map pack, they are all different in certain aspects. USA, USA2.1, USapocalypse all cover the continental united states, all have different game play and looks. The others are all regions of the states. And again, apart from the pack, all are different from one another. The huge difference they all have over this series is that not only the looks have changed from one to another, the game play has changed.
I am not trotting out the uniqueness card here for the sake of it as we have lots of maps that have similar themes and similar styles, I bring it up as at some point we really will end up with Rail Mars or Rail Antarctica.
