    I need to know how to make a Landable Ground Surface in FS on what was originally water...

    Ive been trying to do this in Sbuilder, but whenever I get it in Flight Sim, I see the textures, but I my plane sinks like there is no ground there at all. :confused:

    I need to make it to where It is a hard surface like any other default FS ground...
    I know its possible... somehow, but I have no idea. :confused:

    Sorry if this is a dumb question...

    How are you trying to do it? Change the surface to land?

    Yeah, I think I have only the landclass textures added or something, so I fall right through and I sink into the water, so I would need to change the Poly to land or something, I just don't know how. :confused:

    You can tell I'm a noob at this program, lol...

    I don't have SBuilder running at the moment and it is a while since I used it. As I recall you need to use the LWM (Land Water Mask) Option to create land over the water. Unless the water is just a small lake or something.

    The guys who could answer the question very quickly are over at www.fs-freeflow.com. Scott et al did the Freeflow series and are the best on using SBuilder to modify land, water, coastlines etc. Check them out in the forum there
