I'm looking for some guidance.

I have a save well underway, but I need to do some significant terraforming to continue. I tried creating a map several times, but just found I was terrible at it, so what I did was start with one of the vanilla maps that had one particular area I could start with, then planned to terraform around it. The problem is, after ND came out, terraforming creates massive tsunami waves that before ND would just go inland then eventually wash away with no problem, but now destroy huge chunks of my city.

I need to get rid of all water on the map, then terraform, then bring the water back in the new shape without it destroying the city. Can anyone help me through that? I have the right mods, I just need to know the best way to go about actually doing it without causing a disaster, pun very much intended.

Thanks.

If you have BloodyPenguin's mods that control water sources you can basically change the sea level height to 0. terraform, then reset the sea level to what you like.

  • Is it that simple? I've messed with the water a little, but I always seem to screw something up, such as when I try to create a lake or pond. Is there anything I should know or look out for beforehand?

    Thanks for the reply.

    What I usually do is pauze the game while terraforming, and when I'm done I unpauze, and reset sealevel using BloodyPenguin's mod, which flattens all water instantly, avoiding buildings being destroyed.

  • I tried that, but it seems that when I reset the water to sea level, it would go ahead and reset like it's supposed to, but soon after the water would go ahead and get choppy and create waves. Is there any way to avoid that? The water just doesn't seem to want to stay calm after I terraform.

        Hi guys!
        So, I'll make it quick.
        Whenever I download mods and put them in the Appdata/local/... folder where they belong it goes well and my mods load perfectly fine.
        But when I put in an asset in the destination folder. Somehow my content manager pops up empty and no mods are visible. (Only the Assets).
        I have some pictures here (3 pics)
        Image 1 (when I have an Asset in the folder) (with mods)
        Image 2 (when I have an Asset in the folder) (with mods)
        Image 3 (No Assets result in the mods being visible)
        Idk what to do. I re-installed. Updated. etc..
        (I don't play with Steam) -> can't seem to find the log.
         
        It doesn't matter how many mods there are, they just turn invisible.

        People have always asked for help by tagging me in this forum or messaging on steam or reddit.
         
        This thread is:
        A discussion about my tutorials, scripts and source files.
        A place for anybody to get help with whatever you think I'm qualified to help with.  
        You can ask me about 3ds Max, Photoshop, ModTools, scripts, some basic modding and reverse engineering, game files... 
         
        I guarentee to respond in text or with a very quick and short "tutorial" video if it's appropriate.
        Do not request assets or ask extremely broad questions like "how to make assets" here.

        We all had this issue, we had something that was so challenging we couldn't figure it out! I hope that this thread can help us out more, if you have any trouble with an assignment, simply ask here & hopefully one of us can figure out what the heck your professor/teacher/whatever is asking to be completed, rather its confusing directions or a confusing question.

        Hello all, I got a bit of a problem with my game.
         
        For some odd reason it doesn't let me load or create games at all.
         
        http://prntscr.com/g9p2c1
         
        Is there a way to fix this?
