Default Re: Height Maps

There is an option to save the link in the map tool which works like the favorite button in your browser, could use favorite button if you prefer.

Open the map tool with the link & it opens on the location you saved to your favorites folder in your browser.

Unfortunatly I dont have mine anymore but if you have a windows 7 machine & if its still available download from Stardock free their version of windows aero mode you can adjust individual windows transparency.
Set map editor to aroud 70% place it over the map link in your browser & trace the details showing through from underneath.

Confused Re: Height Maps

Map Lebanon Litani River 33.338918, 35.250556 at the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea.

Resources: Google Earth, www.gps-coordinates.net, WinSPMBT Map Tool.

According to Google Earth and the GPS-Coordinates mapping tool, the generated map in WinSPMBT should not contain the resultant elevations evident in the generated in the Extended Mapping Tool.

Using the coordinates found in the WinSPMBT map tool, the Litani River meets the Mediterranean Sea at 33.338, 35.250. These coordinates do not appear to align with Google Earth or the GPS-Coordinates tool.

I am at a loss to resolve the apparent discrepancy.

Yeah, I can understand that, having to edit in manually certain features like rivers, roads, buildings, even the ocean and coastline as well.

I reported in an earlier post: "According to Google Earth and the GPS-Coordinates mapping tool, the generated map in WinSPMBT should not contain the resultant elevations evident in the generated [in the] Extended Mapping Tool."

The high elevations DO exist in Google Earth inland from the coast; my mistake.

I'll have a look at it. However if the data from google API is wrong there is no way to have a correct result in the produced map file.

Meanwhile I'm moving the stuff to a new server and expect possibly a small break in service close to the end of month.

At least https://www.google.fi/maps/place/33%...5.250556?hl=en
shows that it's not that leveled and judging by the attachments here I can't see any obvious faults. Is there a specific point where you think the terrain map fails bad? Or is it just feeling too mountainous in general?

I now understand that I have to insert the coastline and river into the game map. Yeah, I expected, incorrectly, that at hex 68,100 the Litani river's inland path would begin. But the tool does not depict bodies of water, rivers, or roads.

Thanks for taking a look and the kind response.
