Back to topic: has anybody found any issues with the scenery? I've been finding some square lakes in 3 sites:
 
- Posadas VOR (POS, S27* 23.08', W055* 58.08')
- Foz do Iguaçú VOR (FOZ, S25* 34.59', W054* 30.12')
- Somewhere in northern Argentina, in coordinates S29* 48.02', W064* 38.07'
 
This is the problem:

These have been identified as missing lakes. Landclass calls for water, but no LWM data is present --> square lakes. They appear to be all located near political borders, where I found lakes that should be sliced are instead eliminated by the Geofabrik system... I will attempt to recover them manually. As always, the update is due by the end of the month...

Strange thing is masking landclass should have taken cvare of covering all internal lakes with terrain to avoid this...gotta check!

A small update for the missing lakes above has been uploaded today. Some areas are not completely fixed, I will need to make a more aggressive landclass mask, but it will invade too much into land, so a no-go...

Now I'm getting square river borders, just like this picture of the Uruguay river (Argentinean side) before flowing into the River Plate. This is in coordinates S33* 20.09', W058* 40.16':

square lake borders are due to inland water-class at default landclass level. The mask-landclñass of OSM world South America tries to fix this, but making it more aggressive covers up landclass near all coastlines with a pattern of 2 different classes. FS has a strange way of rendering land-class in which a cell with a transparent neighbor is ignored and rendered transparent... I already "went over" by 2 px to compensate for this and sometimes it is already too much.... some others like above it is not enough... I with I could just decompile the default landclass and edit it up ....

I have been in talk with the guy behind it... still need to find time to test it out!

 

It is  a land-class, and it covers the entire globe, so if you want more city detail this will do! (OSM covered areas will be higher in detail, but this may cover areas that OSM database missed?)
