View Full Version : Request: Flat Heightmap

I must not understand the variables, or it's simply not possible...
But I don't want areas I can't build on. I want to be able to utilize fully 100% of the map. if it's dead-flat as well, all the better. But I suppose i'd take a little undulation in the terrain if there weren't any blasted hills...

In the random map generation page, turn the water slider and the elevation variation slider all the way to the left, slide the altitude variation slider almost all the way to the left as well, but not quite, and slide the smoothing all the way to the right. Also, don't use the alpine or mountainous filters in the top filter, stick with temperate or savanna. You can change your vegatation type with the lower filter and it doesn't recalculate the map.

Yep thats what I did. I even saved the game as soon as the map was loaded and named the file "Flat City" that way I could always have a flat city generated ready for development when I wanted a new city to build.
