    Got it done in worldmachine but had issues all day with the old map editor. That's the trouble of not using it as much as I use to. I forgot a few simple rules and took a while to remember what would work and what doesn't. It was an issue with the water and land level for the base map I used. The map would load in XXL but not XL. Kept crashing with a weird message in the log on two different PC's.
    I felt stupid when I eventually figured it out LOL

    Should have it done by tomorrow. It's nearly midnight here and I'm feeling the affects of staring at a screen all day.

    Just having the normal issues with a flatmap. XL hates flatmaps sometimes. Going to have to add a few small hill areas along the edges and you can flatten them or leave them.

    Here you go
    Maps - Canal City Map

    Finally got around the issues. Still two smallish hills though. Was the only way to get the map to stop crashing.

    Looking forward to seeing what you create.
    Flatmaps have always caused issues for the old editor and I had forgotten how much trouble they can be. Finally found a spot where it wouldn't crash and slowly adjusted it until the levels were OK. Lost count of how many times I started XL2012 to test it :)
