Hi I am wanting to disable the shapefiles and all other external data needed for OSM-Carto. This is because I am rendering a fictional island I have made and don't want the real shapefiles in there.

I understand I will need to edit the project files and comment out some lines, but I am unsure what to comment out as it is a bit confusing just from reading through the files.

I was suprised when my efforts searching for a solution resulted in finding none with a similar question.

I'm guessing that you could just remove this line from the main project file. That's what I'd try first, anyway.

😅 That would have probably been way easier than what I figured out.

I ended up going through the project.mml file and commenting all sections out that didn't have FROM planet_osm_xxxx and had something else.
