Thanks.

Like I said in my first post, I want to get to a point where the script can do 90% of the work generating the map; things like loading the heightmap, painting terrain, placing resources, and placing all the trees in forests. Then it should only be a matter of placing start locations, ports, fixing any terrain bugs and then you're straight into testing.

And the best part is, anyone should be able to use the script on a heightmap they find. It should take a lot of the tedium out of map making while also making it much easier to put more detail into them.
