Added 3 neutrals to ATV


AndrewB, some changes to the xml if you would please.
1. the neutrals on PRA have been removed.
2. LOS has been added to Ivory Coast line and YND & ACC moved.
3. TIP added to Gr Northern Line and BGZ moved as has TUN and ALG
4. New line names - can you check those please.
5. Adjusted bonuses for some lines.

This is finished as far as gameplay goes so you should be almost right to wrap up the xml.

I think this is the best-looking of the rail series. Nice job with it cairns ;-)

The only tiny things I can see worth commenting on, is that I'm not a fan of the font you've used at the edge of the ticket. I think a clean typeface (a Futura or Helvetica of some description) would fit nicely, and fit with the background graphical style too.

The other thing I'll mention is that the white edge around the continent might look a little better if it was ever so slightly beige rather than white?

Anyway, neither of these changes have any real significance to moving on...

Please refresh to see changes on maps below...
1. Caps on those French names
2. continents outlines changed to cream
3. fonts changed on ticket sides, but the title font is called African so i'd prefer to keep it. :)

              Final Forge

---The Rail Africa Map has reached the ‘Final Forge’ Stage. The map has passed rigorous gameplay and graphics examinations, and major concerns have been addressed. If you have any other 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.

It's kinda good to know that I'm not the only one who can't find the 88 cursor file.

Assuming "Le Équatoriale" is French, the correct spelling would be "L'Équatoriale" .

Hmm, on second thought, my rusty French skills have betrayed me. Because French uses two genders, masculine and feminine, we need to decide exactly what "The Equatorial" is modifying. "Le" and "Équatorial" are masculine forms, while "La" and "Équatoriale" are feminine. However, "Le" always becomes "L'" before a vowel or an h. So it is either "La Équatoriale" or "L'Équatorial". For example, "Equatorial Guinea" is "Guinée Équatoriale", while "equatorial climate" is "le climat équatorial". Since "railroad" is "chemin de fer" (iron road) and this is masculine, I would go with "L'Équatorial".

By all means find a French speaker if you can, but I did take French in school here in Canada for eight years.

It's a matter of opinion. RailAustralia is one of my favorite maps, and is the only one that I play of the Rail maps. And it has NOTHING to do with the fact that I'm the highest ranked player on it :roll: :lol:
