Have you placed any objects or trees yet, or items like spawners? If so then I wouldn't worry about those items at this stage. Once you have your world finished you can replace the global layer, but you shouldn't do this if you have a populated world or houseboats.

We don't really know if objects on the global layer can cause problems or not, so be sure to backup your world before attempting this. Remember that there are many playable worlds that have been created without clearing the global layer, so it's debateable as to whether it's even necessary.

I found that yesterday its seems helpful enough ,but on which save of my world i have to do this ? cause i have many backup saves made by CAW
What if i take a layer from a new flat world and place it in my world?
The only objects i have are the lighthouse and the lighthouse fx ,not even trees..

If you still have early saves of your world, you can use them to clean the global layer when your world is finished, before you populate if you plan to do that.

You'd do this when your world is finished, on your final save. But I must reiterate- make sure you backup before doing this- don't do it if you populate your world file or have houseboats- it's not known if this is necessary.

Yes, that is what my tutorial shows. How to take the global layer from a fresh world to replace the one in your world.

Even clicking on items in the metadata list can cause items to appear on the global layer; it seems that items such as jigs and movable props especially are copied there. This seems to be the way that the game is designed to work, and the only reason that I devised this method was to experimentally reduce the size of the world file. It's not known if there is any benefit to cleaning the global layer- and there are some potential detrimental effects for the later EPs- so my advice would be to just build your world and not worry about the global layer.
