So I have been trying to use the map contour tool to capture a port city in China, maybe that is why its not working?

Keep getting:

Error: INVALID_REQUEST at contour.pl line 305.
No matter where in the area I try.

Trying this url essentially:

http://www.venhola.com/maps/geo.php?...78590747&rot=0

(Chongjin, Korea I)

Or:

http://www.venhola.com/maps/geo.php?...78590747&rot=0

Chongjin, Korea II

Level 10 in both cases, but it always generators the error thingy.

Thoughts?

Chinese are blocking this app?

Thanks! That worked like a charm!

Got to figure out why some of my maps won't generate.

Don
Are you guys close to adding water to the maps?

Here is the result after loading in the map editor after pressing "strip map,"



I have started to draw the map in Extended Map Editor, it is a painstaking process indeed.

If anyone is interested, the Dinh Tuong zip has relevant files.

We have added the ability to flood fill areas of the map that show up from Venhola as zero elevation and it will be included with the next patch for CD owners

Default Re: Height Maps

That map you included is useless for that function as too much of the area has been set to zero elevation so it will need to be regenerated with Venhola with the elevations adjusted so your water is zero and the shorelines show up more than that otherwise you get what you show but mostly blue with a little pimple of land

.....but it only works when there is a defined shortline.... if most of the land near the water is barely above water level Venhola cannot differentiate land from water and we have no magic wand to make it do that so there WILL be cases this flood fill cannot work. There have to be contour lines above water level for it to do what you want

This was my 5th try and the contours were set to 2.... the land is just too flat

This is a start you can take it from there..... in cases like this you may need to generate a number of maps with progressively lower contour numbers to get the result you want. This used 2 IIRC which gave the river but perhaps made the land too bumpy

Default Re: Height Maps

here's a section of Norwegian Coastline using Vehola and the new flood fill water feature. Try to imagine how long that would take by hand just to get to that point.....
