• 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.

P3D v4 Create custom mesh

I am working on a fictional airport that has a water airport. Because the coastline and other things were always different depending on P3D version, installed OrbX region, Vector etc I have finally given up on placing it on the island Fehmarn and have created - with much help found here - my own island.

This works perfectly fine and I am very happy.

Now I would like to have a cliff on one side, so that the island is not just a flat board.

Most post I have found deal with how to get better height data for an existing place and convert it to mesh. But in reality on my location is only ocean.

So how best to approach this? Can I borrow data from any other place and relocate it to my island? I understand that creating things manually is not recommended and will not look good. I have found several applications that can create virtual mountains like TerreSculptor, but can the result be used as mesh? If so, would that be only a visual thing or solid ground in the sim?

Any advise which gets me started is most appreciated.
