Quote from: jamespetts on August 31, 2017, 10:30:48 PMThe way in which the maximum canal height is coded is using the max_altitude setting in each canal's .dat file. This defines a number of tiles above sea level beyond which the canal cannot be built. The most straightforward solution, until there is somebody with the time and experience to build a full water/terrain model as Dr. Supergood suggests, is likely to be to apply a maximum altitude restriction to rivers and lakes, too (so that joining rivers do not create larger rivers if the larger river would be above the maximum altitude for that type and that lakes do not form above a certain altitude). As large rivers and lakes are less common at high altitudes in reality, then, absent a fully detailed water/terrain model, this would seem to be the most sensible way of resolving the anomaly described.
