OK, so I I confused myself a little and some people may be thinking WTH? Loading either of the London Bristol maps causes the text "GWR Mainline" to appear in the Seed. When you are using the IND map, the industry generated will be exactly the same, if the text is exactly the same. Change, add or delete even one character and the distribution of industry will be completely different.

The quarry to the south of Romford is probably historically accurate although there were (and still are) a lot more here (Gravel pits mostly) Given that there are large lakes and reservoirs there now, I suspect the quarry east of Shenfield is also accurate. Not sure that the Thames Valley and East Anglia are well known for Oil fields though. I could be wrong?
Apologies if this seems ungrateful to point this out , but you do know the Thames can still be navigated by quite large vessels right up to the centre of London? To this day, it is still a natural barrier that needs to be bridged (or tunnelled under)
Keep up the good work. The words above are meant to be light-hearted. I am enjoying your maps very much. Thank you.

This is probably a big ask but, is there any chance of having partial industry version? By that I mean that only the first stages of industry are spawned : Farms, Quarry, Coal Mines, Ore mines, Forests and Oil fields? I did try the non-industry version of this map but, although I am quite happy to build factories in logical places, I am not quite ready to determine where natural resources should spring up .
I think I am going to add a few farms over on the east coast by Romford and Shenfield. We do have farms here, mostly grain. Romford used to have both a Cattle Market and a Brewery. The latter was open from the early 1800's until 1992 when some damn fool closed it and became a shopping centre. As a result, the fields surrounding Romford started growing Rape (Rape seed oil).

No, this is the first I have heard of it. The lua file seems fine, minimum height of 95 and maximum height of 400, so 5m deep water should be appearing.

I get the map without water, and find out industry to be placed in would-be river beds. Is this a common issue?

Ah! Yes that would make sense!

It means this map has industry on

What does the IND stand for? :)

@Oldhip You probably need experimental map sizes enabled
