For the new upcoming Earth map, I would like to point out that the current Earth map still has the Great Lakes drained. I have a suggestion to fix this issue, simply adjust the height map until the shore matches the sea level

Notice how the colour of the Great Lakes in the height data is roughly the same colour as the ocean.

Other games like Universe Sandbox have done the same thing and I feel this would make a decent solution.

Are you sure? US2 actually simulates fluid on planet surfaces and doesn't need to use 'janky' methods of correcting water levels.

Yes, but if you look at the height data in the US2 image, the colour of the Great Lakes in the height data on the top-right is roughly the same colour as the ocean.

Looking at the water depth charts and actually measuring the depth there would have been more helpful than pulling up the worst map of Earth to grace my screen, but it does seem you're right.

Also the lakes on earth have morle like green borders, is that hard to implement this on the UHD maps? 

I love this simulator lol ♥

miniluv73, longname, Khorrah, that is all off topic for this thread.
