• 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.

Hi, this question was asked here multiple times, but never answered. How can we cut grass? There is only one way to completely remove grass (Adding no-grass material, with minimal opacity) but I have found no option to just reduce height of grass.

In past, I used to add Apron all over the airport with runway grass material, which reduced height of grass, but this mentioned way does not work anymore...

Is there also a grey value to cut the grass to the half hight? I think orishek is looking for that.

There is a material Type of short_grass, but I don't know if there are any examples of it. If not, you'd have to make your own material to test it. Currently caught in the update/download spiral.

Probably has not changed in the last couple of updates; the amount of green in the ground image is the main influence. If you add a photo-overlay replacement, with the green channel turned down it shrinks the grass.

In the past it was also possible to cut grass with a occluder object, but that is a crazy job if you have a profile in the underground and not a 100% flat one. :D
