Exclamation 2017 release Map work

I'm starting this thread for anyone who wants to discuss the new map terrain and editing tools once the patch is released and I'll start it off with a map I've been working on but not included with the patch. I will post it once the patch is released but it uses many of the new terrain and all of the new terrain application tools.

Unfortunately, at this time this is the best I can do to illustrate it so it's more teaser than informative but there is a RAR attached with it zoomed out as far as possible for the game for any map maker who might be interested in seeing what's been done


but that is a 200x160 map so represents and area 10km x 8 km so 80 sq km

EDIT.

Something about the map had been nagging me so I rechecked a copy of an original paper map from the era and realised I had placed the town a bit too far "east"..there was a critical hill that should have been due south of the town that ended up being more south-west...... but with the custom editor what used to be impossible without a redo was simply a matter of cutting a section out, moving the entire town "west" then reconnecting the roads and streams then tidy up the edges



JUST A REMINDER.....THE ATTACHMENT IN THIS POST IS NOT THE MAP ONLY A SCREENSHOT OF IT...THE ACTUAL MAP IS IN POST #17 OF THIS THREAD
