    Don't push yourself too hard, skullz613!
    Always keep in mind that the people need their time to enjoy
    the maps you made, need time to build their cities on...
    If you release your maps too frequently, people might skip their given projects
    on your maps, and start over again...
    Think about that no one wants all of e.g. Stockholm's city area as a map, they want
    Stockholm in the middle , some docklands like in London on the right side,
    a small lake like in Hamburg (Alster) in the northern area, and so on...
    At least that is the way I imagine it to be :p
    Stockholm only approaches this partially...

    I'd agree with kipate about not pushing yourself too hard, but not for exactly the same reason. I'd say don't push yourself too hard because you don't want to burn out by taking on too many projects at once.
    Your maps are some great work and I love having as much choice as I can cram into my mod folder but I don't want to see people making lots of mods to satisfy the rest of us if the mod maker is not getting any time to ever play the game!

    I've actually ground to a halt with the maps. I'm not sure which one I'll do next. I don't push myself to hard to churn them out.
    Some are quick and easy but some can take a bit more time. Especially if there's lots of details to add like the Kristiansand v2 map i did.
    I did think about the amount of maps that are now available but then I thought about all the new members and also the new players to the game. At least there is now a huge selection for them to choose from.

    It's fine to take a break once in awhile; you've definitely added a lot of choices to the game.

    I had a request by PM for Washington DC and I was currently itching to build a map so it ended up at the front of the queue.
    I finished the base.

    There will be two maps, with and with an overlay. I was going to so a satellite overlay but at the last minute opted for the standard map.

    I guess the difference is you can replicate the road layout on the overlay map and then switch to the normal map.

    Just as Snick said. Mine will be two maps with and without the google overlay. Once your finished using the overlay to build on you can swap for the one without the overlay.

    Hmmh, was Washington DC in real life indeed that noteworthy and nice such that
    people would want to resemble it as exact as possible in CXL? :p

    I have been playing around with the kiwi monenybank lite patch because the description did not work and the thumbnail would only appear if the carpark mod was installed. I made two other patches at different amounts as well. See my first post for the attachment
    See below for attachment

    Thought I'd post this in a new reply as some of you may of not seen it.

    Kiwi Money Bank Lite modified

    I have fixed the description and also added a thumbnail. It would show up as a carpark only if the carpark mod was installed. Its got it's own icon now.

    I also made a 500000 and 100000 version. Only use one version!
    See the attached file below.

    Thanks a lot @skullz613 !!!
    I think the $100,000 should work fine for anyone.
    Whosoever reallly needs the $1,000,000 version, don't you dare
    to move into finance and banking :b1:

    Well I've been having so much fun making island maps that I keep forgetting to finish the Hiroshima map :eek:
    Here's the latest island map. I have no idea what to call it.

    @skullz613 :What about "Jeopardous Reeves"
    due to all the small islands that lie in front of
    a possible port area and where you don't know whether
    the water below your ship was deep enough to sail/ship through...?

    But Blue Lagoon sounds also good.

    I'll be releasing the latest island map as well as the Hiroshima map. I took a bit of a break but have now finished Hiroshima and just have a few things to do to it before I release it.

    I would like to recommend MONTEVIDEO, the capital of Uruguay.
