Caspian Sea past its original boundaries
« on: January 04, 2017, 07:49:41 pm »

When I decided to go to Azerbaijan, I saw that the southeastern parts were completely submerged, and the sea extended almost all the way to the Kazakhstan - Russian border. Can you tell me a reason for this?

Currently most of the sea water around the Outerra world is at 1 set sea level.

If that area is below that sea level, then it'll be underwater (for now).  Shoreline implementation is being worked on to help fix this at some point...

I'm forgetting if there is actually a water height setting we have access to or not, but it might be a change to one of the program/Outerra files.

I was just looking at a video somebody posted recently and they were taking a close look at shoreline issues. One of the things I hope gets sorted, eventually.
