Problem with Release-20190314 Map Parse

Some maps are failing to parse with the new release, any idea how to fix? Tried to edit with the new release editor - did not work.

Click on the red "Fail" text to see a description of the failures.

The first map contains custom rule overrides that were written for release-20181215, and so you must select release-20181215 on the upload page and then click the "update map" button to update it to 20190314.

The second map defines a bunch of trees as being owned by the Creeps actor. This causes problems with the AI, and so is now detected as an error on the new release.

They both have creeps - owner error - unable to fix on my own, not sure if it's possible to edit yaml and replace creeps with netural or something like that./

Yes. You can edit map.yaml with a text editor and then replace all "Owner: Creep" with "Owner: Neutral" in the Actors section.

Replaced but unfortunately, there is another error when uploading the edited .oramap:
Error:

Hash calculation failed.

That error happens if you use 7-zip or another external program to compress the maps into a format that is not actually oramap. Use the map editor to save as oramap instead.

Ok that worked but now getting a bunch of other errors - seems there are more compatibility issues.
