    I love using displacements and they have added so much to my map, but quite often there are very small gaps between them and no matter how hard i try, they won't disappear. Not even the sew tool works. How can i close them?

    check your vertice points - they aren't aligned

    If i were to align them, that would mean redoing hours worth of work

    Well then your choice is either to save hours of work that was done wrong or do it right and get rid of the problem.

    It's impossible to sew displacements unless the vertices are aligned (or if a vertex is exactly in the middle of another displacement's edge, i think).
    So unfortunately you will have to align them if you want to solve the issue. In the future, plan your displacements like a quilt and align everything the first time.

    Yeah. The thing is that I had a previous section of the map that looked amazing, so i copy pasted a section of that into my normal area:/
