Landscape tools do not have increase water height
« on: July 11, 2020, 08:41:31 AM »
One of the problems with pak.Britain is that landscape tools do not have increase water height.
See this thread for more details.
https://forum.simutrans.com/index.php/topic,20131.0.html

This causes some problems with server games. Because only an administrator can do that.
So, there is no way to return land at 0 altitude to water.
Pak128.britain has this tool only in Map Editing tools. However, other paksets have this in another toolbar so you can undo it even if you're not a public player.

If you raise and lower the terrain next to water it will become water

This leads to an odd balance where it is free to convert a water tile to land but costs 4000c to convert it back to water.

This can be done at no cost, but only public player can fix this in an easy way.
For the normal player, If you set all those tile to altitude 1 and then submerge it in the sea, it will become the sea. It costs a lot of money.


The maximum speed of the waterways is slow, so I want to make this a sea, but it is very difficult. This is because pak.britain cannot use the normal player as a tool for watering here.
