@QueryEverything

I figured out how to do the digging.
But for irrigation channels the holes going to be too wide.
I can avoid it but then the channels going to be at least two tiles wide, maybe even 3 and that is just too big for just Irrigation Channels.

I even put a road next to the channel and the ground came up covering my water.

I looked at the example mesh RedKetchup send me and his walls of the channels are pretty thick (More then a tile on each side just to cover the slope up).
But his channels are 6 tiles wide and for traffic that is fine.

I thinking about making them a bit above groundlevel with some small wooden dams or even dikes on each side.
I have a test done and that works.

I have to make an end piece and corner piece beside the straight piece.

@embx61 that sounds really excellent :)
Also (and I know it's too late, but it just occurred to me) that @Necora managed small declines in his latest mod, with the riffles, they were gentle slopes, not the harsher ones.  If that's of any help for you, for the future.    But, just with my trials just now, it still ends up 2 wide, not 1. 



So, I like your idea :D  I think it will add a little creativitiy to farming (??) and a little bit of height to normally flat areas.  :D

i suggest you @embx61  to go with 1 tile wild pieces in the map description code.
and do 2 tiles wild mesh centered in the middle which will cover a bit each side. since it is an irragation canal, you dont need to dig deep ! go for a 0,5z or even 0,4z or 0,3z

and also with a very little hole , if people decide to delete them, the ground is still can be used for other things :)
gonna send you my road tiles mods when i dig just a very little 0,3z and see.
