it has probably been said by other users, but I would really like to have the possibility to have real maps or regions or states. It would be much more interesting to build the network for a real region or country ( like Switzerland 🙂 ) or even just more “logical” maps than to connect random cities. I would really not care about the not 100% realistic scale !!!
Because I understand developers would not be able to develop such maps, that just means to have a map editor where we can set terrain heights, place cities and industries.
Can the developers say if they plan to add an editor and what functionalities in the last patch ?
Thanks for the information. I may have missed it, as I only read that developers “would like to open more possibilities for generating maps […] height maps”. Unfortunately, this does not imply an editor… Did they really mention explicitly an editor ?
To me there are three important things for the maps: landscape (height maps could be ok), city placement (with some parameters such name, population and maybe mix of residential/commercial/industry/leisure areas) and industry placement.
Cool, I really hope so 🙂 or, if that was not their plan, that they would squeeze it in because in my view this would be the #1 of realistic possible improvement, along with the “industry falling to 0 in an instant” bug.
Thank you very much for the information. I really hope you will manage to go beyond height maps to at least allow users to place cities and industries. By the way, is it possible to rename cities once the game starts ?
