Hi,

Heightmaps should be placed in the Documents/Simutrans/maps folder


If You don't have your heightmap yet:
Heightmaps in simutrans use the .ppm extention.
Basicly you can take any greyscale heightmap from google and convert it to .ppm using Gimp (an opensource photoshop software).
Most of these maps won't be playable gameplay wise, so i suggest you download your heightmaps here: http://maps.simutrans.com/ (<does this site still get updated?)

Does it live in the Simutrans directory or in My Documents? I've had them merged for so long that I've forgotten. Check both, at any rate.
