Since large Canal projects need approval from higher authority, does this mean we will start getting paid for canals? I've made 2 canals with my neighbor prior to seeing the rules, and wanted to follow up. I will begin working on the bridges as required for them.
Canals wont be paid. These rules and approvals were created to ensure that the bigger built canals don't end up as a total mess since they can have a big impact on the surrounding area. You are not obliged to upgrade your canals to the newest Canal rules/requirements if you finished them before the official announcement. However it would be a nice move
