I know anyone can do it, the instructions are stickied at the top of this forum.
But I'm wanting to do it, so if you are on a slow connection, or have a slow machine, or just don't have the time... please reply with a request!
limitations are the data that I can get from google earth.
I'll do my best to turn things around quickly, I don't imagine much demand.
It's the state Baden-Württemberg of Germany I'd lile to have as a heightmap... I don't know if it's enough information if I give you a link to google maps, but let's try! (as I said I can't run GE and therefor can't give you a KMZ file!)
(google maps link)
This piece of data is like 85% Baden-Württemberg, with a little piece of France to the west, and maybe a little Switzerland to the south west.
If i were to guess, this map may be a little on the high side, pictures look like there is a lake on the Germany / Swiss border.
I am attaching the original heightmap, plus the heightmap that I stretched to fit the game a little better. With the "long" version you should use a map size of 512x1024 (native) or any other size that meets those 1x2 constraints... for best results.
Let me know if you need me to work on that body of water on the south border... if thats not what you are interested in then I won't spend the time

here are my following attempts... im sorry to say i can't seem to get it to work.
my suggestion is after starting the scenario creator, that you just hack off the right side where the lake should be
and fill it in with water
edit: this is a 512x512 map

its the mainland only, all those little islands are not going to fit much land in this game, unless you have a really big map
its a little compressed, east-west, to make the image fit this game.
the native file is 1024x2048, so you can use that, or 512x1024, or 256x512...
the native size is the best, as far as usable land is concerned... there is a lot of water on this map (as there is in real life)

Ok so there is a little Denmark and a little Norway but its the nature of the beast that is google earth.
i believe there are 2 large bodies of water there in the middle of Sweden that when you import will just be very flat land (not water)... should only take a moment in the scenario editor to flood those areas.
Size of the picture is 1024x1024, so you can use any size scenario as long as both values are equal!

The x- and y-scale are slightly off, but the rest is pretty nice It is 2kx2k map btw.
Ps: it is a test map, so England isn't fully on it, and some other minor issues

The location I am looking at in peticular is the region I live in: http://www.google.ca/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=G ... iwloc=addr
Thanks in advance.
