P3D v4 Ground Polygon Inquery

Hello everyone!

I was wondering what people are doing now when it comes to putting your ground polygon into 3DSMax.

I have read the 2014 tutorial when it comes to using MCX to input the coordinates but my issue is I did not get my ground polygon from SBuilder. I paid for them on separate retailer and it didn’t come with coordinates.

My question is what now should I do to get the coordinates? Is it really necessary to do it this way for the ground polygon or can I just use the old way of matching your runway length?
Any input is welcomed thanks!

It's your own choice how you make your model in 3ds max so that it aligns well in sim. The GPW is only about processing the mdl file so that it aligns with the earth curve.
