[WiP] 1:5 Israel Map

Post by umri.x » May 30th, 2019, 10:26 am

Hello everybody,
2 days ago I started my first map ever.
It's a 1:5 standalone


I'll posting pictures every couple of days, hopefully I can make good progress since my days are full with college and work.
As I said this is my first time so take it easy on me :roll:, but I'll try my best to make it nice.
If you have some beginner tips I'll appreciate it.

I started with Afula city moving up to Nazareth:

Looks nice! It is really good to see more and more people announcing map mods on this forum!

Okay, there we go, now I'm glad! As a beginner you have ONE BIG privilege, you can
DREAM. You won't be able to do that later when reality hits you hard! :lol: So, if you
could dream wildly for 5 minutes, what would you like to have accomplished, let's
say in the next year with the map? Number of cities, percent coverage of Israel? BTW,
why 1:5 as scale? Is it a calculated one or just a compromise between the common
1:19 and 1:1? DREAM away mate, we won't hold it against you after that year has
gone by! :lol:

THANKS!

BenganJ; Thanks!
Well I did change the map background to a calculated one, I wanted to do a 1:1 but I thought it would a bit hard for a beginner especially that I would need to add every little detail,
I don't use the background anymore, I opened Google Maps in the second monitor and just make it by eye with reasonable measurements. I know Google 360 pictures are automatically shot every 15meters.

Okay, we all have our preferences, so if that's a way for you to
work on the map, it's fine! BUT, where did the DREAM go? :lol: :lol:

Well at least I made an attempt to reveal the specifications of
the project, but I failed miserably! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Without a guiding background in 1:5 scale (or any scale) you are gonna go away from reality step by step. Doing one road, not a problem but when you gonna have let say 3 cities you will see the problem. In a standalone map is easy to make a custom background because you dont have to align perfectly with SCS Europe map like add-ons mappers are doing (or trying). Replace editor background with a picture of Israel and you are good to go.
I can give you two good examples with "mapping by eye" : Southern Region and YKS. People are saying are in wrong scale but the true is those are maded by eye, neither SR or YKS didnt had the luxury of a SCS background, like Romania or Ukraine, for example. So they did it "free style". The result is not quite aligned with anything.

I can see what you're talking about, anyhow.. Now after you mentioned it, it hit me the map is bigger than the background,
Btw, if I change the scale while working on the map it will still affect it right?
