Ah, the thankless and lonely job of the mapmaker.

Anyway, I think the above change will do the trick.

Thank you Night Strike,. but it's a real shame that you and others don't get into the Map Foundry and express your concerns before these maps are quenched.
You could save us and others a lot of energy and time wasting.
This map was available for ages in the Foundry and hardly anyone bothered to comment on it. :)


Oh, come on now cairns, you know that isn't accurate. I'm not a foundry regular, but I've supported all 3 of your Rail maps through most if not all of the process. I didn't follow the map as closely near the end, but I also didn't realize there would be something unclear like that. Your fix is hidden enough to not take away from the map, but still relevant to address the issue.

I'm playing my first game on this map, and I was convinced there was a dot between LHC and QLP indicating a connection... It's definitely there, and looks more like an attack route on the small map. If I lose the game, I'm going to blame that dot! :o

of course Mr Benn, you can blame anything you like...except your own eyes.
That black dot is actually the tip of the railway station roof. ;)

Now that you've told me what it is, I can see that. I still think it's an issue on the small map - it's the combination of the circles on the roof that lead to that bit of the roof looking like it isn't the roof... and as the two stations are so close it feels like they could connect... Yes, I should have been paying more attention, but this kind of thing is the trivial kind of thing that puts people off maps (I haven't knowingly played China since misattacking Shaanxi/Shanxi)...

Version 30...fixes the roof of LHC station, the station has been moved southwest by 4 pixels on both maps.
There should be no room for poor interpretation now. :)

On map inspect ADL R borders BDT but BDT only says it connects to O and V rails, map should be updated to show that BDT also hits R - is BOB wrong or is the map incorrect?

My map inspect says that BDT hits ADL R and ADL O which is correct, as well BGO V and MEL V :)
