Maximum Autogen Buildings' Height

#1
What is the maximum generated buildings' height?
In FSX and P3D SDK mentions 12 Floors. Is this correct?
Is there anyway you can create taller buildings?
Thanks

Hi,

Correct, the tallest group of autogen buildings is 9 to 12 floors. If you want taller buildings you have to use custom objects.

12 floors is the maximum. If you need more it cannot be achieved with autogen, you have to design a 3D scenery object.

However about autogen, my undersdanding is that FSX/P3D is interpreting the building density in the vicinity and also the current building footprint surface to select final building height.

If you request maximum heights for your autogen buildings area, but it's a region with small towns, you have no chance to reach 12 floors.

On another point, I read this document for the Generic Building objects.

Question, how do you calculate the height of them? You need to sum: sizeBottomY, sizeWindowY, sizeTopY and sizeRoofY?

Thanks

Correct, you would need to sum them.
