Take Me to the River

You can't quite tell by screenshots, but this weird river flows up around and down, just fine, past this glitch. I did not stay and play, so I have no idea if traders would freak out getting past (or through) this...

I should have recognized it instantly since I live in California - it's the San Andreas Fault!

@BuildHappy I debugged a few quick buildings on it to see if it worked, I might go back and see what happens when they are in use, but to be honest, I didn't stick around for long.  I figured I could build over it if it was a good enough map, but it was chickens ...  had it been cows or lambs, sure it'd be worth it :D

I've had that graphical glitch happen on a map or two in the past. I can't remember anything specific but I seem to remember that the traders could pass over it without any problem. I vaguely recall that after playing one of those towns for a while the glitch seemed to fix itself. However I did decide to end that map and start a new one because, as I always do, I installed some new mods and just "had" to start a new town!

I don't specifically remember it, but I think it just went back to the something very close to the proper river texture. What I do remember is that when it fixed itself, it wasn't as glaringly obvious as when the glitch was present, oh, and it seemed to occur only in complicated bends in the river or places where there the river joined a lake and produced small islands (like in @QueryEverything's images).

Haha, no, I did it :) @BuildHappy

I normally have a naming convention of something along the lines of:  animal seed natural_wonder 
In this case, I had chickens on the map, the river was odd, so it became ChickenLegRiver

Others have been:  MooBage Valley
Where it was cows/beef, cabbage and valleys 

:D
