Description
Greater Vancouver & Fraser Valley, British Columbia, Canada; from Horseshoe Bay and Tsawwassen to Chilliwack and Harrison Hot Springs. Lots of closely-spaced suburbs to allow the cities to grow together into a metropolis. Large map (8K x 3K), adapted from GeoGratis data, but with rivers mostly hand-drawn since they did not come through well. Fraser River is navigable all the way across the map.

No, unfortunately not. Terraforming tools don't work below the waterline.

But isnt there a way to edit the water terrain in-game?

@jhowelaw: some of those are deliberate (marshy area that's not readily buildable), but I've also seen a couple that appear where they shouldn't. The proper fix would be to fix the heightmap in Photoshop, but finding the few random pixels one shade too dark is pretty hard (without clobbering areas that are supposed to be water, that is).
You could of course play with the minimum value of range = {75, 1000} in map.lua at the risk of having too-high shorelines and trouble placing docks.

I also see a lot of holes below sea level across the map and its impossible to build when they are blocking the way. Do you know how we can edit the water terrain so I could fill up these holes?

Just place industries yourself wherever you think is most appropriate.
You can enable the industry button if it isn't already, either by editing the config file:

\Steam\steamapps\common\Transport Fever\res\config\base_config.lua
game.config.industryButton = true

Or you can use a mod to do it, like Industry Tycoon . Most industry mods, like my Flexible Industries also enable it automatically.


As an aside, on my own playthrough of this map I've concentrated on population transport only and ignored cargo. I'm at about 110k population in 2010, and be forewarned: populations that high will crush your system.

I also realized that there arent any industries in this map, how do you add them?

ok got it thanks the thing I was doing wrong was the game was still running :steamhappy:

@jhowelaw: something is clobbering your settings file then. It's not so much that you get the warning and then the setting is reset, it's you're getting the warning because experimentalMapSizes is false.

Just to be clear you're editing the right file, it should be
\Steam\userdata\<steamid>\446800\local\settings.lua
and you should be certain to edit it while Transport Fever is not running (otherwise it will certainly be clobbered when you exit the game).

I keep trying to set experimentalMapSizes to true but every time I try to load up this map it will say "Heightmap too large, Cannot load pixels exceeding 16M" and the experimentalMapSizes goes back to false. How do you fix this?

Again, are you trying to electrify the station with the track upgrade tool, or from the upgrade menu of the station? If you build a new station/depot do you have the option to build it electrified?

You really should post this as a question in the general (or support) Discussions section, since it's nothing to do with the map you're using.
