Occurs when trying to dig on a tile with a shovel that is more than 6 dirts below the water table.
  • You can't flatten at that depth.
Occurs when trying to flatten a tile in which is the involved tiles are 7 or more dirts below the water table.
  • You can't level at that depth.
Occurs when trying to level a tile in which the involved tiles are 7 or more dirts below the water table.
  • The water is too deep and would only dissolve the concrete.
Occurs when attempting to raise a rock tile with concrete in which the corner is more than 24 dirts below the water table.

Occurs when trying to drop a dirt that is adjacent to a structure/fence in which the slope is more than 40.

The concrete would only flow away.

Planning/Building

Can also present itself in the form of the message This type of crop can only grow in water of suitable depth.
  • The water is too deep to plant the <item>.
Occurs when trying to plant a crop on a tile in which the northwest corner of that tile is more than 0 dirts below the water table.
  • You are not skilled enough to build in such steep slopes.
Occurs when trying to build a fence on a tile border in which the slope is to high for your skill. The max slope you can build on is (3*√skill)+10.


Mining

  • The water is too deep to mine.
Occurs when trying to open a tunnel in which the northwest corner of the tile being mined is at or more than 12 dirts below the water table.
