    Well almost...:(
    After months of trial and error, I have figured out the proper image & tiling configuration to get a single image material file, in the Cities XXL map editor, to use for game maps. (see the image below).

    Now...How to get a clear image?
    Maybe some of you Photo Shop gurus can give me some ideas.
    The map editor uses a 512 x 512 .png for textures.
    The "map size" in the editor is 4096 x 4096, same as the in-game maps.
    My Google Map screen grabs are around 1024 x 1024 (72 pixels per inch).
    I get too much blur when I resize to 512 x 512.
    Then, the map editor seems to stretch the image, causing even more blur.
    The map editor will accept a 1024 x 1024 .png, but the results are near identical to using a 512 x 512 .png.
