• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

FSXA A couple of questions

I'm still working on that Jamaican - Cayman scenery. I am attempting to redo the coastlines with this tool. I have never used it before.
1- Can I make a hole in a hole polygon?
2- How do you stop GE from rolling over and over?
3- What would keep a holepoly from working? 748 vertices?

Thanks

Don't know about the rolling GE but you will have to play with the arrows while you make the polygon.

First you have to make a polygon (I do all of them clockwise) that is just big enough to cover the area you will be modifying. Tag this polygon in FSX KML as an Exclude, one of those with a lot of attributes depending on what you want to exclude. At the minimum you will need this polygon with Exclude Hydro Polygons.

Then for each of your islands make the contour polygons right on their coast. Tag them with Polygon Hole. I don't know if you can just have a bunch following the Hydro Exclude or what.
