Ground hugging

Hi Arno.

Using FSUIPC, it might be possible to define a rectangular area, in either FS9 or FSX, and then sample the terrain elevation by automatically moving the aircraft in slew-mode. This could make a mesh that could be used in gpoly to create a ground-hugging poly.

Hi Dick,

Humm, that is a nice idea. I'll put it on the wishlist for future versions, let me first get the exporting of flat airports working :). After that I plan to do some testing with the FSX curvation so I can hopefully use FSX MDL files for ground polygons with bump maps, etc. But after that non-flat airports would be great.
