I tried to clear a woods terrain (Removed one)with clear terrain of the worker and it didn't work. I think its because the woods terrain was removed on map editor.

That's gonna be a problem since most of the maps has that old woods.
It was the first time I used clear terrain so I wouldn't know.

as i see the problem desription is this:
Clear terrain is not working on old (obsolete) wood tiles, also the game does not show any information about it, as it
- shows the clear terrain option in buildlist on that old-wood tile
- you can start placing it and build it by a Worker
- and when finished it just vanishes
-- without any change on terrain,
-- without any error
-- and without any notification of failure.
I tested it on "Ponds" random map that can be used for a local skirmish or a multiplayer game, i used a Worker to build the "Clear terrain" object/option.
ok i will try making it as it will not be listed as an option, or if so it will throw some message on trying ot build it on it.

I think it can be done purely by assets - old forest can get it's own terrain type (eg. forestold), which won't be listed in terrain group TERRAINS_CLEARABLE, so terrain clear couldn't be build there.

Yeah, sure - I'll put it among the top of my todo list, so as soon as I'll have some time/inspiration.
