I have just down loaded all the maps and not one of them is working
Did you follow the instructions here: http://www.smrsimple.com/2009/06/how-to-manage-custom-maps-with-smrmapshifter-exe/ or here: http://www.smrsimple.com/2009/06/how-to-manage-custom-maps-by-hand/ ?
Same here they are all no good
I jsut downloaded it and it opened fine with 7-zip, I’ll get more time to test later.
Nice map, only problem is there are to many industry options. Can’t build all required industries as they don’t fit in box and I can’t scroll across.
I downloaded this map and don’t work in SMR, game exit
Has your game been patched to 1.10?
Yes I installed patch 1.10. I select this map, map is loading than “Sid Meier’s Railroads! has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry to inconvenience.”
Do you have any other maps installed?
Disappointing that there were no goals on this map. Didn’t bother playing it.
Good job on creating the map, though as an Australian myself, seriously you need to check the spelling of the town and city names, most of them are completely wrong! You spelt Sydney as Sidney, for example, also the business’s near by have no towns that process their resources, basically a virtually unplayable map.
This is one of the most visually pleasing maps I have seen. I do find it a little strange that the whole country seems to be on a cliff though! 😉
Now the downsides. There are cattle farms producing livestock but no stockyards in any cities and you can’t build them either so this resource has no way of being used.
You can build fromageries but there are no supplied of milk. Should the cattle farms be producing milk not livestock?
Only Brisbane has a car plant but you can’t build any as it’s not an option in game so the coal mine near Perth has no point.
You can make steel and then arms but no city accepts arms so this good has no market.
You can produce gold from ore but no city accepts gold and there are no banks in any cities or any way of building banks so this resource has no final link in it’s chain either.
Timber is limited to 2 sawmills in the very north. There’s only 1 vineyard and none on the east coast where I am led to believe a lot of Australia’s major vineyards are based.
Similarly, for a country like Australia that is resource rich I felt that there was a distinct lack of ore and coal.
OK, I have found a stockyard in Cooktown but you still can’t build any.
Also, only Alice Springs and Sydney have food plants to process grain and you can’t build food plants, only breweries. There is no demand for beer though and most villages need food – or textiles – to grow them to towns so this is kind of frustrating too, especially if you start somewhere like Perth and can’t afford to build a line to Alice Springs until the mid part of the game.
Great Map.. except there are a few problems… industries are in the wrong place for instance there should be more industries on the east side where the majority of agriculture takes place.. also Sydney is spelled wrong… its Sydney not Sidney…
Matthew, you need to grow the city first before sending Arms, Gold, Manufactured Goods, etc. Anyways there isn’t any problem here. You’d never thought that if the city grows the city will have more options of goods it will receive. 😉

worst map ever, the only thing that was similar to oz was the rough size, the terrain is nothing like it, and hardly any industries, everything was miles apart, you could make gold bars but no one needs them at all, looks like it was just thrown together.
Your map loaded okay, but it is a shame that the Gold Coast is not at sea level. The whole continent should be lowered, it unfortunately spoilt the feeling to play it for me. Can you lower the whole map?
cant build livestock at a station , to many icon’s with double impact from 2 diffrent zones
even all the train list is double,
there are simple to many proffesion directions to gather from and build icons is not present
agree with RolandBP this map should not have left draft idea… this map should be marked as bad and not playable, yeah you can play it until you discover no beach at australian at all , this sahould be named as alpha map not tested not worth game time at all.
Why is everything spelt wrong in this map?
Great dividing range way over stated leaving no plains at all to the east ( Where most Australian people live ). Ugly ugly ugly.
