I can't seem to zoom in to the level of the grid. Might have something to do with Microsoft's absolutely useless "Edge".

There are some bugs in that experimental version... I'll try to iron them out ASAP.

This is a 2019-2020 Feature Request

I am just wondering if it might be possible to add more flags to the SP random map generator; so that the RNG can leave the underlying contour map intact, and instead overlay terrain types/trees, etc on the map?

That was already on our work list for consideration last April but untangling the interconnected code is more complicated than it sounds.

Unfortunately I've been way too busy with work, family and an injury. I had an ACL reconstruction and meniscus repair surgery last week and I'm still trying to recover from it. It's on the list of things I want to work on with but pretty much overriden by the list of things I have to work on.

The important thing is to get healthy and deal with RL first....whatever is left after that work on this wonderful map tool you have built

Here is another tool for mapmakers

https://elevationmap.net/

a graphic representation of the contours ( with the contour lines shown ) plus ready access to satellite imagery of the area

Another far simpler way to "reveal" the contours on a freshly generated Vehola is to use the new "Strip map" feature of the extended map editor.....it reveals the contours with one control.

Good news, everyone!

I just today finished with the map tool update that provides the satellite view properly and with all the bugs fixed. Additionally there's a new download dialog which allows you to
  • specify the description text (spmapXXX.txt)
  • specify the map id number (1-999)
  • specify the map name
The created files are returned in a convenient ZIP package.

Map description text by default contains the URL of the downloaded map just in case you do the same as I did and lose precise coordinates where you created that map in.

New functionality also includes switching between map, combined and satellite view. In combined view you have a 50:50 mix of the map and the satellite view so you can still see the labels. The rotation is M (Map) -> (C) Combined -> (S) Satellite.

Enjoy, report back if anything goes terribly wrong! I had to use a lot of API requests to test and fix the bugs in the process, so if Google complains about those then you have to wait until the resources are free again.
