Custom Ground Line Flickers

Hi Team.

So I tried to add the custom ground line for making yellow strips that are on the edges of the runway. So everything goes well but those lines in the sim when I get close to them it starts flickering.
I read some posts and found out that we have to elevate the lines. But I m not sure how to do that. Please help me to remove the flickering.

On the compile dialog there a place to enter an offset.

Also, if you haven't done so, it may help to flatten the airport to the ARP elevation.

@gadgets Yes i had put offset at 2mm and 7mm but it didn't work. If by flattening the airport you mean using Airport Background/Flatten Mask Class Map Exclude autogen, I have already done it. If there's any other way to flatten the airport let me know.

These are short yellow lines that are on the side of the runways
Not sure what u mean by layering

7 is the default. If it still flickers at 7, it will certainly do so at 2. Use a larger elevation - 10, 15, whatever it takes

If there's any other way to flatten the airport let me know.
No, so long as the flatten elevation is exactly the same as the ARP elevation, you shouldn't have any problems.

If a moderate increase in GP elevation doesn't do the trick, please post your AD4 file and identify which version of Flightsim you are using..
 
By layering I mean that you have to add a negative layer number to your lines.
If you have a Ground Poly underneath, the GP lines would have to have a more negative number than the Ground Polygon otherwise they flicker because they are at the same layer.

If its properly flattened, you shouldn't need that much - unless the airport is adjacent to, or the runway is very close to unflattened, very rough terrain.

That being said if 15 works ….
