    Ok I was a bit bored earlier. do started to look at some of the things in FSX that bug me..

    So I went to FIMP for a flight, and low and behold with the FSGenesis Mesh the runways 151m in the air..
    [​IMG]

    it should be around 50m..

    So how to change..

    Well I loaded Sbuilder..

    Created a polygon to "Exclude_All_Airport_Boundaries".

    then another poly with AB_flatten set altitude to 10m (discovered it was 50 later! but this is easy to change..)

    then a final polygon set to AB_MaskClassMap_ExcludeAutoGen

    now it looks like this..

    So what now??

    How do I get the runway etc. on to the ground.. all help appreciated..

    Thanks

    FSX and FS9 have a habit of once reading an elevation for an airport, not allowing a file to revise that elevation. That's why your work shows as it does. The trick is to get in and place the new elevation data into FSX (in this case), so that it gets read prior to the default data. Use the following code as a template, making the necessary changes for, well, just about everything. Save, compile and place into your \Scenery\World\Scenery folder. Start FSX and see how it should all come together!

    And the default airport shows at 149.961m, which appears too high. The FSGenesis mesh doesn't affect airport elevations.
