• 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.

Old question by an old guy .. sorry Im sure this has been asked before.

Getting back to SBUILDERX after many years away. Now 71 and retired ready to start over LOL My question is this. I have modified a coastline and built an airport that exists in real life but not in FSX default and I am left with old coastlines. (see pic) Is there an easy way to get rid of them?

Any help appreciated.

To exclude the shoreline, you would want to draw a polygon over it and set it to Exclude_All_Shorelines. However, this will delete the entire shoreline within the default QMID region, which may not be exactly what you want.

To do it properly, you really want to replace the entire QMID. Now, it's been a while since I have worked on vector, so I cant remember what the default level is, if it's constant or changes at different latitudes. I know for the Solomon Islands, I was using QMID7.

I would just exclude the polygon and see where it stops excluding, then try to match a QMID up with it.

That's the spirit ! :)

PS: Tell us the airport ICAO / IATA code, and we can help you some more. ;-)
