RAIL SOUTH AMERICA

Image Image Image

Supersize Approval 5.1.13
Draft Stamped 16.1.13
Gameplay Stamped 21.8.13
Graphics Stamped 30.9.13

1. Map developer - Cairnswk
2. Software: PS5 and Illustrator CS5
3. The number of territories currently on the map - 114 territories less 25 starting neutrals = 89 (golden number)
4. The number of continents/bonus zones 22 continents
5. Descriptions of any unique features or areas. - Straight play railway map (but if someone has good suggestion it might be implemented)
6. Fonts use:Arial on stations, Hobo Std in legend, Samba on titles.
7. Why - This is the last map in the Railway series - it appears there is some support for this map, and it would be good to advance the series - possible Battle Royal contender.

Small: 800 x 850; Larage: 880 x 935

shouldn't this be in the drafting room instead of the ideas?

Ah, but this one has been done for some time just sitting on my 'puter. :) Same as i have others that are in file storage. ;)
I really don't have the time to enter that comp. I'm writing notes about partnership law and cases at present, and then have to get onto Corporations Law in preparation for the finals in 4 weeks time.

First off, amazing start. Really happy you chose to do this one!

Funny you should mention the above. I was actually thinking the other day about a Canadian Rail map and was wondering if you'd address North America at all. It's a long way of, I'm sure, but count me as someone who loves the rail maps and would be happy to see more. Rail Canada and Rail Central America (with Mexico) would be amazing if you wanted to do both!

I'm just uploading this now so everyone can see it is there if required.
I'll get onto the title details later.

Maybe you should think about a rail... Mars

I think you need more than 1 postcard in the top right. Just would be better aesthetically imo.

Yes, well that could be on the cards if there is enough support, although i wouldn't do Canada alone but there are severl routes in Cancada that would make it worthwhile in the larger map.

cairnswk, don't dismiss the idea out of hand. If this or the next one finishes of the series :( (Earthbound), it might be nice to get one that is completely fictional. Basing it on Mars would be different from the moon map. Give it some more thought, it could bring different types of gameplay into the series.

You have 2 Paraguayan and no Uruguayan in your legend.

But more importantly, yay rail SA! +1 support for full rail NA.
