Cut out part of an textured surface

Cut out part of an textured surface

I have an assembly of a flat landscape with various buildings on it.

I have inserted historical maps from various years. These maps are made from a flat panel where I have added the image of the map onto a flat surface by adding the image as a texture. The size of the flat panel is scaled to fit the map image. Now to my problem - I want to cut out the more interesting parts of the map but when I do this, the texture-image distorts to fit the remaining cut-out.

Is there a way to firmly "glue" the texture to the surface so that it does not distort when I make a cut-out?

 

The sample file included is from a local village map from 1701.

My present work-around is to leave a small part at the bottom left corner and at the top right corner.

Leaving these corners makes the texture remain unchanged but I think this solution is a bit primitive.

 

If you take the attached file and resume the suppressed feature you can see what happens.

Your attachment didn't attach.

Just for clarification, what software and build code are you using?

Wildfire 3.0

Uploading attachment "Village_1701.prt", size 9 676 429, unsuccessful with message:

????

For some silly reason, you have to zip the file before attaching.
