## Version 1.3
An update of the 2048x2048 map of Germany/Europe is online:
- Added lighthouses
- Added some of the mountains
- Randomization of towns and industries:
- Now, each time a new game starts, towns are expanded and industries are created in a random way, so that they look a little bit different each time
## Known Issues
- Aabenraa does not get any buildings: need to search for the reason.

Answering some of your questions out of the game:
> \[Trank\] pls gimme where to get this map
> \[Player\] hi! where can i get the map? :)
You can save the game and use it as a scenario later on. The **Europe XL** map is still under construction. When ready, it will be published on OpenTTD BaNaNas server, so that anyone can download it directly from within the game (Check Online Content, Scenario). The small map of Germany is already published there as "Deutschlandkarte Germany Map".
> \[Trank\] everywere ++++ and wtf im bakrupt?
> \[Trank\] thats collapse of all infrastucture without no reson
I couln't be online as you wrote this message, so I don't know the reason. Please note: in case you did not protect your company with a password, it could have happened that someone connected to your company and made it go bankrupt. Check the Finances window to identify what generates costs. Generally, the infrastructure causes maintenance costs. Avoid unnecessary stuff.
> \[Trank\] how can i upgrade buses how a class?
Autoreplace is turned off. Breakdowns are turned off. There should be no need to replace old buses.
> \[Trank\] is it a charge for ol buses?
No, there should be none. At least it was not my intention. Do you see any problems?
Update Jan, 24th 2021
The version 1.4. of the map does not include Reims and Aalst anymore. Their location was completely invalid. A lot of additional lighthouses have been added. Some of them are not visible as they would have to share the same tile due to the map scale. A few additional towns: on the islands, in Denmark and in Poland.
A possibility to complain via chat and to restart the company has been added thanks to [the OTTD admin tool](https://github.com/miltschek/OpenTTDAdmin).
Update Jan, 17th 2021
The version 1.3. of the map contains a lot of corrections in the flow of the rivers. Originally, many of them did go upwards :lol:. The problem is the automatic generation of the terrain and the shape restrictions of the terrain in the game.
Initial Post Jan, 1st 2021
The first version of an OpenTTD scenario featuring the map of Germany (and surrounding countries) is online.
It took a lot of time to generate the height map, draw the rivers and lakes, place the towns and cities and mark the borders of the countries. I have reused the [original code of the game](https://github.com/OpenTTD/OpenTTD/) in order to manipulate the scenario file programmatically.
The scenario is publicly available for a multiplayer game under the name __\*\*\* Real Topography… (by miltschek)__. I’m still verifying the game play and collecting points for fine tuning. One of the goals is to integrate a few NewGRFs in order to get even better feeling of the localization.
Settings of the game:
* Disabled 90° turns of the trains.
* Max one industry of a type per town.
* Changing economy.
* CargoDist for passengers and mail (atm symmetric); that is: they are aware of the destination they want to reach
* Starting at 1950 and running until 2050.
The scenario is published under the [CC BY-SA 4.0 license](https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/). It means, you may share it and adapt it, including commercial use for as long as you give credits to me and keep the same license in case of re-publishing the new material.
