negative Extrusion

Hello all,
using this: CreateAGNPolyBuild|BUILDTYPE=4 AND FNUMVERT<=100|{f707c26e-32ed-4f15-85a2-81c5bc9f8b32}|-0.009
with -0.009
the result is neg1.jpg, the orange building is not visible inside Prepar3d
using -0.001 the result is neg2.jpg the building are now all green but the wall is too fit.
it seems that when the walls are very thick and overlap, annotator brings them to orange because they are incorrect. What can I do to solve it. there is a way to extrude better with -0.009 in this example.
P.Š. I noticed that only the developper version recognizes this negative number. I do many tests

Hi,

Polygonal autogen buildings are a hard. Once the courtyard ring has some overlapping or intersections they become invalid. So I don't think there is a general setting that will always work.

Many of the orange polygons you show are not closed ring's, but U or L shaped. I don't think they are suitable for buildings with courtyards.
 
Hi,
I read the manual, a part, for this element: CreateAGNPolyBuild|BUILDTYPE=4 AND FNUMVERT<=100|{f707c26e-32ed-4f15-85a2-81c5bc9f8b32}|-0.009
talks about a possible 4 element, optional, buildAttr
CreateAGNPolyBuild| filter | GUID| width | ????| I do not found an example for this latest part. What kind of number is needed?

Hi,

I think the manual is incorrect there. It mentions that this attribute can be used to specify if a feature is open or closed, but that is not implemented in the code it seems. I'll check tonight and see if I need to update the manual here.
