I love the new texture also. Could you soften it just a little with a blur of something. Just so it fit a little better with hte rest of the map.
What do you know about map making, bitch?

Agreed. The texture is definitely an improvement, though.

So for this version:
1. Added soft gaussian blur to the plaster background
2. added a glow to the edges of the land mass.

Any good?

              Final Forge

---The Rail Europe Map has reached the ‘Final Forge’ Stage. I've revived this thread from the pits of the Foundry Furnace (okay, maybe not) and have examined the contents. Nearly every major concern has been addressed. If there are any other current concerns, please make your voice heard. If after a reasonable amount of time there has not been any objection or protest, the map will be deemed finished with the 'Foundry Brand' of approval and will be submitted for live play. As long as there is still discussion or posts that have yet to be commented on, the map will remain in Final Forge until said discussion has reached the conclusion that the map has reached its final and polished version.

Post questions and concerns if any.

-Paris B is missing in Benelux Expres bonus

-Rome L: border with Rome K is missing


Those xml errors fixed now. I have also checked the file in Jota's xml tool and KevinC's tool.

Please have another look over the xml when you get a chance with fresh eyes.

No mistakes found any more now.


Thanks Forza AZ

I've not looked at the XML tbh.. it's fairly straight forward I imagine - so no crazy logic in this one!!

Cairns I checked your XML (in Lanyards absence)

One thing I haven't checked is the co-ordinates...

But otherwise - there is 1 error...

IRN Irun F <-> MRS Marseille F

These 2 territories border each other in the XML - but not on the images.

(Note IRN Irun E <-> MRS Marseille E - do and should border themselves)

If you can fix that - then I say this XML is good.
