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:

I have split the small file into small and large maps.

There was an issue in the upscaling from the small to the large and this has been resolved so that there is no longer a one pixel border showing on the left or bottom of the large map.

The master files are now in .png format, but the tests 88s are in opn jpg.

I have also taken the XML to version 9 (AndrewB's last version was V8) now, and i think the centering is more complete now, although i'd like someone with really good eyes to cast that overview please.
KTM -> KRT (as per map) has also been rectified. :)

And hoping that we get an upload soon :) , i think Forza AZ has checked the XML and is OK with that ??

there are a few spelling mistakes in the xml. the ones i've noticed are L'Algérian for l'algérien, N'djamena for N'Djamena, Kinshasha for Kinshasa and Capetown for Cape Town.

as for the equatorial, i believe it's either l'équatorial or la équatoriale, but am not sure which.

I think you're right about those spellings, except that l'algérien should still be capitalized: L'Algérien. Similarly, as I mentioned a while back, it would be L'Équatorial or La Équatoriale, with the former being my preference. Also, it is not uncommon for capital letters in French to omit the accent, but it is not wrong to have it.

OK, i've made a decision....
L'Algérien will be final. <name>E: L'Alg&#x00E9;rian</name> in XML
L'Équatorial will be final. <name>I: L'&#x00C9;quatoriale</name> in XML.
I'll adjust the xml and the map, and hope the God I never have to do another French name again. ;)

Some coordinates on the small version seem different from the others, i don't think that it is a real issue... (e.g. N-PRA / I-PTN)
Another small thing is the link between G-ACC and G-LOS, with the 888 the rail is complitely cover, but honestly the game isn't worth the candle.

Well done, this map is ready for the man with the bowler hat ;)
