• 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.

FSX mesh editor?

Hey everybody, Jon Raines here. I am in need of a terrain mesh editor so I can model the hill at Mountain Empire Airport for use in the FSX version of my scenery. The previous version had a hill constructed in Gmax, but since I have discovered how to edit the airport flatten area and I would like to make the hill a part of the mesh terrain to make it more "natural". How am I to go about doing this? I know very little about editing terrain mesh.

Thanks for your help! :D
Grises50 for small repair jobs

If you download grises50 (http://www.scenery.org/design_utilities_c.htm), it turns your grayscale raw format bitmap into a .dem file acceptable to FSX resample. You can set the minimum altitude, and altitude steps when you generate the DEM file.

Be sure your grayscale map is in *.raw form in planar form. Paint Shop Pro v5 or above can do this.
